Giants’ Rolle: I don’t want any excuses when we put it on the Eagles

AP

With the Giants preparing to play the Eagles this week, one defensive player is saying he wants to see Michael Vick on the field.

The reason? Giants cornerback Antrel Rolle says he expects to beat the Eagles, and he doesn’t want the folks in Philadelphia to be able to brush it off because Vick was out with a concussion.

I don’t want any excuses when we go down there and put it to ‘em,” Rolle said Tuesday on WFAN, via the New York Post.

Rolle also said he’s looking forward to shutting down the Eagles’ big-play receiver, DeSean Jackson.

“I’ve handled DeSean Jackson one-on-one before,” Rolle said, “and I don’t see why I wouldn’t be able to do it again.”

  1. The giants might win this game with Vick or not but I’m not sure Rolle should think that really means anything. Neither team looks like the class of the NFL.

  2. This guy needs to shut his mouth. He needs to realize he is on a mediocre team that is hampered by injuries and they will be lucky to get 8 wins this year…

  3. Something tells me there is going to be some hittin’. Dunta out, Rolle in.

    And Trent Cole is going to be trying to tear Eli’s flesh off his skeleton.

  4. Well if he doesn’t want excuses, then so be it since he has spoken. I bet if this guy says he wants world peace that would happen too.

    In other news, is he going to make an excuse for his teammates flopping injuries because they weren’t man enough to stop a no-huddle offense??

  5. Even though the Giants can NEVER beat us , they always provide great comedy . Six wins in a row is about to become 7 . Out of every team in the East the Giants look the worst so far . Is this the same guy who said they would beat the skins 95 out of 100 times (making excuses) ? Stop getting spanked by Rex Grossman and CO. , then maybe someone will believe you !

  6. Rolle should be reminded that the Giants haven’t beaten the Eagles in over 2 years. Without Vick, the Eagles are vulnerable, but with the way New York has been playing neither team looks to be better than the other coming into Sunday. Still giving Eagles the advantage with game being in Philadelphia.

  7. And when DeSean gets a long touchdown, he’ll fake that he wasn’t the one who got beat. Since faking is the only thing the Giants can do nowadays. Deon Grant needs acting classes.

  8. Coming from a defence that had to fake injury, in the first quarter mind you, against the Rams, I find it hard to believe you’ll stop the Eagles.

  9. I don’t know, the giants defense looked good to me. They have had so many injuries, but that line can still wreck the game. They gave up crazy yardage, but how many times did they stop the rams in the redzone? I wouldn’t be surprised if they beat the eagles.

    Please change this to “The Giants with Antrel Rolle have never beaten us.” Please don’t act like the Giants have never won a game against the Eagles. I seem to remember a game at the Linc in 2006 when the Eagles were up 28-7 at the end of the 3rd Quarter, and the Giants won in overtime. And the Giants have beaten the Eagles more than the Eagles have beaten the Giants (just not in the last 3 years).

  11. As a Giants fan, I am so tired of this assclown. His mouth writes checks that his lack of talent is never able to cash. His presence on this team has become a burden. He talks s**t, inevitably has one of worse games (which are always are a horror show) after he mouths off, and never does anything that makes you feel it’s worth the distraction he has become. If the team was not so depleted by injuries, I would say cut the fool and free up some cap space. Terrible signing by Jerry Reese. Over rated, grossly over compensated, and under performing. The three worse things a football player can be. Really starting to look forward to the day when this cancer can be cut from the team. Maybe he will go work at the Today show and hook up with an intern. That seems to be the standard behavior for this type of douche.

  12. you got beat by Grossman, and struggled with Bradford, and now you -want- Vick???

    I thought they tested for concussions these days…

  13. The last time a Defensive Back had something to say to Desean Jackson, the first play of the game went for 80+ (Laron Landry). Rolle I advise you to keep quite.

  14. Antrele who? I have all the respect in the world for the G-Men but didn’t all of their top corners wind up with injuries in the preseason?

    Funny, you really don’t hear the top corners in the league talking much. No idea why you would want to give any team motivation to come in and play you.

  15. I mean…the Eagles have beaten you 7 times in a row…perhaps you should win one before telling the other team not to make excuses….

  16. This isn’t surprising….It seems that ever since the G-Hens overpaid him, he hasn’t shut up, but never has any influence with his actual play…..

    Coming from a VaGiants fan. Shut up. We’re overrated.”

    yes, yes yall are.

  18. Just like you blamed the Redskins for beating you while you were undermanned 2 weeks ago, right rolle? didn’t you say that if you were healthy, you would beat the skins 99 out of 100 times? Even though the skins beat you handily 28-14 without starters Laron Landry, Phil Buchanon, Jarvis Jenkins?

    Keep being the cheap shot artist that you are and when you’re getting your asses handed to you and you become too exhausted to be competent, keep flopping around like a child to stop the clock.

  19. Thank you Antrle… Keep giving the Eagles more reasons to get up for this game. Oh an didn’t you get benched last week during the Rams game at 1 point for doing so poorly? Maybe you should ask the real players to say something instead.

  20. This guy is a freakin clown. Just last week he was saying the Skins would only beat the Giants 5 out of 100 times. Boy I’m so glad we lucked into that 1 in 20 shot. The Giants aren’t nearly as good as the Eagles right now and no way can he hang with Desean.

  21. When did Rolle handle jackson last year? When he was running through the entire giants defense to win the game. Good stop Rolle now wake up to reality.

  22. If the Giants cross into the endzone the cameramen and interns positioned along that wall had better duck—quick!

    Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

  23. Funny how Eagles fans forget we owned them 9 games in a row earlier in the 2000s.
    Should’ve won the last 2 games.
    Our scheme should shut them down easily.
    Our offense is what I’m worried about.

    GO BIG BLUE!!!

  24. Not a fan of Rolle how he runs his mouth with his dumb comments. But i also find the comments that the eagles will win without vick very funny. First the giants arent as bad as everyone thinks. Second vick is the reason they had that miracle comeback last yr. Without him the giants dline will destroy kafka no doubt. The giants dline is nasty and they put a ton of pressure on the qb. I see the giants wanting this game more than the eagles. Now if vick plays thats a different story, then i think it will he 7 in a row.

  25. Well, Antrel, here are Jackson’s stats from the times you’ve met–

    N27 2008–6/76 1 TD
    J18 2009–6/92 1TD

    N21 2010–5/50
    D19 2010–3/52

    Oh and 1 punt retun for a TD in each the Giant game and the 1st AZ game I believe. You might shut him down, which will leave room for Maclin, your close buddy Steve Smith, Jason Avant, Brent Celek, and of course the RBs.

  26. The Giants are a disgrace.

    “Oh no! We’re losing! Quick, someone pretend to be injured to stop the clock!!!!”

    Don’t worry Giant losers, Vick will probably be out of the game due to the concussion he got last week.

    So you can score a tainted victory against the Eagles backup QB and feel better about yourselves for the 6 days.

  27. Funny how Eagles fans forget we owned them 9 games in a row earlier in the 2000s.
    Should’ve won the last 2 games.

    GO BIG BLUE!!!

    —————————————–

    Funny how 2001 doesnt mean squat now. Neither does should have. Should have is something that only comes out of the mouth of losers.

    The Giants parted like the Red Sea as Vick ran down the field and whipped that azz in 7 minutes.

  28. It took a miracle and a rookie punter to beat the Giants the last meeting…Vick will be on the ground all game long due to a Offensive line that is one of the weakest in the game. As long as he looks like Mohammed Ali after the game the world is a much better place.

  29. @eaglesw00t
    “Should have is something that only comes out of the mouth of losers.”

    Funny to hear a team with no Lombardi’s call others losers.

    Regular season wins are championships in Philly.

    How pathetically sad it must be to have to root for such a soulless POS like Mike Vick & on top of it not to have won anything meaningful in FIFTY ONE YEARS.

    Eagles=Losers that must hang their hat on regular season wins.

  30. Weren’t the Giants the ones giving excuses after they shat the bed against the Redskins? Then they pull off fake injuries against the Rams? This team needs to shut up and play.

  31. Wow – big words for a guy playing a team who likely won’t have their starting QB. Let’s hope your D doesn’t “fake it” again, but this time against a much better team. I fully expect a lot of no huddle plays for Philly if Kafka or young do get the start.

    Let’s see you back up your words, Antrel. I would like to see your team beat the Eagles too, but talking about it and doing it are two different things, bro.

  32. Steve Smith will score a TD, then he’ll fake an injury to his knee as celebration, only to get up and laugh at the Midgets and stick it to them 2 ways.

  33. Antrel Rolle is a beast. He WILL shut down Desean. From what we saw last week, it’s clear the Eagles are no dream team. Looks like it’s going to be another ringless year for Philly.

  34. If I were the Giants I’d want to see Vick as well. After what they did to him each game last year why wouldn’t they? What they should be scared of is a guy like Kafka who actually drops back, gets the ball out quickly, and puts it where the play is designed for it to go.

  35. Talk is cheap. Eagles will be running a track meet on that secondary. Giants will have to keep up if they want to snap this streak. Only thing even remotely intimidating about the Giants is the DL

  36. Typical eagles fans hating on the giants again. That hate is really envious And jealousy rowards the giants Because they have 3 superbowl rings and the eagles have none. The eagles don’t even look that good For having all those so called stars on defense. Giants 35 eagles 21. Eagles will finish third in the division Giants cowboys eagles redskins

  37. I love hearing about all the SB trophies everyone else has won, and the Eagles have none. That’s cool… sooo Giants fans, how much are those SB trophies helping you out this year? Looks like none. Maybe if Antrel took one of those trophies and hit DJax over the head with it the trophy would be relevant to the game being played this week. But it’s not is it… sorry to say that more recent history then your pot shot miracle SB victory from years ago has nothing to do with the fact that you suck right now. Our run D is the only suspect right now IMO, we average 31 pts a game and what like at least 5 sacks, not to mention numerous hits on the QB… Eli won’t be faking that’s for sure. But go ahead, tell me again how we haven’t won a SB yet and you have 3. Like it matters come Sunday.

    GO BIRDS

  38. Eagles Jealous of the Giants. What world do you live in. Remember It was the Giants Blowhard rolle that started this. Giants lost to the redskins with T- Rex as quarterback WOW talk about sucking. At least against the Eagles you wont have to fake Injuries they will be real.

  39. giant unrespected dogs heading down the turnpike to fight the “dream team”. we’ll leave our lombardis at home. see you on sunday.

  40. First you guys would beat the Skins 95 times out of 100 and now this crap?

    I’m pretty sure Antrel recently purchased a giant (pun intended) smoke machine and is just blowin it up everyone’s asses.

    The Eagles may have a hard time winning since they don’t have Matt Dodge on their side this time.

    ————————————————–

    But we do have 2 of Eli Mannings favorite targets on our team… Steve Smith and Asante Samuel

  42. Still waiting for this guy to do anything. Seriously… I’m amazed we spent the kind of money that we did on this guy, because he’s been invisible as a Giant.

    Glad he’s running his mouth, though. That’s terrific… (rolls eyes)

  43. Rolle is really trying to make his team think they have a chance. I think the Giants want Vick to play because they can blitz him and Vick still cannot beat a blitz. Kalfka can pick apart a blitz. Rolle has 0 % chance of stopping Desean with no safety help. He has 10% chance of stopping Desean with safety help. Rolle is slow and Desean is the fastest WR in NFL. I hope I see Rolle 1 on 1 just once and lets see what happens.

  44. And Dom Hixon is done for the year, thanks for showing up. Second blown knee in 15 months, and going into his free agency year no less.

    Giants, I have you your first excuse, but you were supposed to save the injuries for facking them in the game.

  45. @every giants fan : Everyone knows Philly hasn’t won any super bowls but since your 07′ season you have been owned by Philly .. Even in games you should win you find a way to choke . Just like a Super Bowl goes through Green Bay (not NY) , the NFC East goes through Philly . And as everyone knows , YOU CANT BEAT US !! PS … No one cares about your past lombardis when right now you have a below average team. So keep your mouth’s shut or I’ll send Rex Grossmam over to give you ladies another spanking !

  46. the giants defense is overrated and has been exposed throughout the season. they should be practicing more fake injuries this week because they will need it .. 6 in a row and counting

  47. I think giants could win this game but this rolle guy is a character….I guess we should be thankful he doesn’t talk in the 3rd person…
    BTW antrelle kafka didn’t look horrible the other nite so u should probably mince ur words more carefully

  48. Not a Giants fan, but:

    1 of these teams is one of the most successful teams in the last decade.

    1 of these teams has been pretty mediocre

    1 of these teams has a big play offense and a host of new defensive talent

    1 of these teams lost a lot of talent and is extremely injured

    1 of these teams is a “Dream Team”

    1 of these teams has a Super Bowl recently and a few overall

  49. From a NYG fan since 1967 (had to say this as not to have my fanhood questioned), Rolle couldn’t D up Tito Jackson let alone DeSean Jackson. The Giants have the WORST DB’s EVER assembled on one team, yes ever. They’re slow, they can’t cover, they don’t/can’t jump for balls, they play 20 yards off the ball on 3rd and 3, and they have no football IQ. And this was before all of the injuries. So please Mr. Rolle, while it’s good to have confidence, show some common sense. Unless you’re visiting the fountain of youth this week, play the game on the field, not in the press.

  50. Jacksaysfu –

    “But since your ’07 season…”

    Yeah bro, since the Giants’ last SUPER BOWL VICTORY – something the Eagles can’t seem to do. Think about it, we’re coming up on the 46th Super Bowl and the Eagles haven’t won any of them! Of course you don’t care about the Giants’ past Lombardis. I would be bitter too if my city didn’t how it feels to win a Super Bowl.

    Btw, the Giants and Eagles have the same record this year last time I checked. Vick is going against one of the best d-lines in the league. You better pray you don’t lose him for the season.

  51. @bigbwoy000

    And L.T. tried to buy a child prostitute. Don’t sermonize Eagles fans on cheering for POS players.

    @ everyEGirls fan:

    If you had a Super Bowl wins you would never stop talking about them just as you losers never stop talking about REGULAR SEASON WINS!

    If you could go 6-0 each year in the NFC east & never win a Super Bowl, is that what you silly fools want? Are you satisified with division wins & no championships??

    Here’s a news flash ya bunch of low brows-
    Only Championships count!!

    He had no idea what age she was.

    Your QB did it over & over & over multiple times a week for 6 years. He also knew he had herpes & passed it on to other humans. He also is a knowing pathological liar. Don’t confuse a mistake with intent.

    As always you are a troll.

  54. Also — Antrel Rolle, a SAFETY, thinks he was covering DeSean Jackson 1 on 1?

    If that’s true, the Giants D-Coordinator should be fired. Even the fastest safety in the NFL can’t run a lap next to D-Jax.

    If you’re not putting your best cover corner on him, you’re doing it wrong.

  55. I LOVE YOUNG ANTREL.

    What will be the Eagles’ excuse when they lose? And what will they have to brag about outside of a meaningless regular season streak of miraculous wins (half of them)?

    ————

    He said nothing about best in the league. Most of that is targeted towards Eagles players and fans who act as if this 6-0 streak means something outside of the Turnpike. NO ONE CARES. But Eagles fans act as if those are Super Bowls.

    I guess when you haven’t/never will win one, that serves as solace.
