Rolle has no doubt Giants can handle Gronk

Antrel Rolle doesn’t care about Rob Gronkowski’s ankle, and he doesn’t care whether the big tight end plays for the Patriots or not.   He also doesn’t just think the Giants can stop the Patriots’ two-headed tight end monster.   “Think? No,” Rolle said on Super Bowl Media Day. “I know it. ...

Antrel Rolle Can’t Keep His Big Mouth Shut

On Monday, we exposed Tom Brady for what he really is – a brash, cocky meathead jerk. A day earlier he told a crowd of 25,000 New England Patriots fans that he hoped to see them all back in a week for a much larger celebration. Of course he was implying that he hoped his team would win the Super Bowl, to which the unbiased and modest New York sports media replied, “Shame on...

Giants safeties load AK-47

Tiquan Underwood’s Hair Stole The Show At Super Bowl Media Day

As we’ve already discussed, the week of Super Bowl XLVI has already started off with the standard, lazy storylines of guarantees and misconstrued words, with Tom Brady and Antrel Rolle providing the cannon fodder for the media thus far.

New York Giants: 2011 Report Card

The 2011 season has been a roller coaster ride for the New York Giants.
