"I just had to let them know that I am not a pushover, I am not a punk under any means and sometimes you have to put your foot down," Rolle said. "It is more of a mental toughness and more of an attitude than anything sometimes."
OK. We get it. Good thing his manning-up didn't cost the Giants a game. That being said, the Giants will be going to Arizona this week, where Rolle spent the first five seasons of his career. He vowed not to let his emotions spill over onto the field:
"There's going to be extra special ... you definitely want to go in and give them a show," Rolle said. "But I am not going to let any emotions take me out of the game or make me even more exhausted than I already will be."
