Just a few days after the New York media spinning Tom Brady's comments at the New England Patriots pep rally Sunday afternoon, New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle said something a little bit more bold than "hoping" there are more people at New England's party as he essentially guaranteed a victory for the Giants.
As the Super Bowl's media day was held Tuesday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, players from each team were drilled questions nonstop for an hour and it's only expected that someone will say something questionable—and that's exactly what Rolle did when he replied to a question regarding the team's mentality: "We are going to win this thing. We are going to win this thing for a lot of good reasons."
I understand he was simply expressing his team's confidence, but is this the kind of attention and pressure he wants? He couldn't have just said that he's looking to win the game?
Rolle continued to add that the Giants are "definitely going to take care of business."
Entering Super Bowl XLVI, Rolle is certainly going to have his hands full covering tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez as well as New England's slot receiver, Wes Welker.
With the comments Rolle decided to unleash on media day, we'll have to see if he's able to back up his talk and "take care of business" against Tom Brady and New England's high-powered offense.
