Antrel Rolle: Giants need to win out

With a one-game lead in a division that has underperformed from top to bottom, the Giants could likely secure a playoff berth with a 10-6 record.

But Giants safety Antrel Rolle’s looking at the toughest part of the schedule, and suggesting that winning out might be necessary.

I want to win six out of six,” Rolle said during his weekly appearance on WFAN (via the New York Daily News). “That’s the way I look at it, that’s the way I play the game, that’s my attitude about it. Four out of six — it may get us in, it may not get us in. it all depends.

“I don’t want to bank ourselves on a 10-6 season. So [I’m] definitely going to go for a 12-4 season.”

It doesn’t help his cause that they’re likely entering the toughest part of their schedule, starting with Sunday night’s game with the Packers. They also have a pair of division games left, along with Atlanta, New Orleans and Baltimore.

“We have control of our own destiny at this point,” Rolle said. “We’ve got to take care of each and every week as if it’s our last week, as if it’s our first week, as if it’s a do-or-die week, because that’s exactly what it is. It’s do or die; there’s no room for error at this point.”

Given the schedule they have in front of them, 4-2 would be impressive in its own right, despite Rolle’s lofty goals.

    Don’t the Giants normally do well in the “tough” games? It’s the average/easy games in the middle of the year that they seem to have issues with.

    I don’t think the Giants need to worry too much. In the NFC East this year, 7-9 might get them the division.

    Huge Giants fan here……um, good luck with that!

    You’re looking at another 9-7 record, bro, if you’re lucky; but that will still get you in.

    Like the attitude…but highly doubt it’s going to happen. A win this weekend (a November game) would be a nice start.

    I’m not worried. Giants fans are getting used to pulling our hair out and biting our nails down to stubs. All they have to do is get in to the dance. They can take care of it after that.

    In order to do that… The D-Line better show up, the LB’s better play better, and the Offense better get their collective heads out of the sand. The last few weeks it’s been brutal. I hope the GMEN turn it around… starting this Sunday!

    Suggested step # 1 … stop letting WRs get behind you for big gainers.

    We won six straight last season against the best teams in the league with the same guys. It’s not like we cannot do it again.

    Just like last year, so many issues that make it look like it will be impossible for the GMeN to make a run.

    Running game non-existent, line protection throwing everything off, secondary looking lost, and inconsistent pass rush.

    However, leadership is something they always have. Every team has issues right now, but every team does not have Tom Coughlin.

    The Giants will piece it back together just enough to make the tournament, and everyone will call them lucky AGAIN.

    Us Giants fans know it isn’t luck – it’s determination, heart, accountability, and leadership.

    Watch it happen.
