"Were we prepared? Yes. Were we ready? No," said Rolle, who was as passionate as he's ever been on the radio spot where's he's been known to let it all hang out.
"We're too calm, man. We're too relaxed come Sunday...we're too poised," Rolle said. He was cognizant to be cautious enough not to knock his teammates too much...
“I never made a statement about the toughness of our team. Now, was that toughness displayed Sunday night? I can honestly admit and say that, you know, they were the toughest of the two teams.” He was sure to state that he thought the Giants were the better team overall, though.
"The truth of the matter is, that team is a good team. And I respect the Eagles. … But at the end of the day, do they compare to us? Maybe. Are they better than us? Not at all. That’s the thing that really gets under my skin, you know what I mean? We win as a team and we lose as a team, without a doubt. But give yourself a chance. You know what I mean? That team, there’s no way we should have lost that game Sunday night."
Rolle would not buy into the "collapse" talk, staying positive but clearly he was upset. He vowed the team would rebound from these back-to-back losses.
"We’re gonna get it. We’re a great team. We are a great football team,” said Rolle. “And that’s why I’m so upset. We’re better than that, man. We’re better than that. And as soon as we all get on the same page and understand and believe that we’re better, you’ll see a better Giants football team.”
