    I'm referring to him accepting the nickel role. Once he committed to it he actually played it rather well. Prior to that, defense was a mess.

    You don't just slap a "C" on someone's chest and then all of a sudden the team feeds of that person. The team doesn't choose these people.

    Yeah, because that was because of his "attitude" and not getting used to a new position...

    I obviously don't have a link from an article last year but he said it himself.

    Edit: Just googled this. Pretty much every article says something like "he eventually accepted" or "it took a while for him to come around" referring to the nickel role.

    Either way, Rolle plays every game, out of his position at times for the good of the team and consistently puts up numbers. On the field he leads by example.

    Rolle, and I think it's because of him taking it upon himself to not only address the media ( which we all know he can sometime misfire with comments, but that will improve with more practice), but to also deal with The coaches on a level of laison for his team mates. He's not intimadated by titles, and has respect for them, and ..mostly because he has a sense of accountability. I give Blackburn all the credit for PLAYING at an inspirational level. Chase has done nothing but demonstrated he IS worthy of wearing the Giants uniform, but, not sure he can lead a team with anything of a verbal mission statement, as Rolle can. Rolle likes to talk, Chase likes to play...both are great candidates. But, Rolle is a natural at it.

    I stand corrected. He lead in solo tackles.
