Antrel Rolle doesn’t like to kiss anyone’s butt, especially before a game. He seems ticked that some New York Giants (Justin Tuck) were too effusive in their praise of Robert Griffin III.
Rolle thinks the Giants need to get more attitude before the game, a little more nastiness. Justin Tuck had been overwhelming in his praise of RG3, and maybe psyched him and some of their teammates out.
The loss to the Redskins effectively took away any advantage the Giants had in the NFC East, and they know it’s going to be a ‘dog’ fight.
Rolle understands that the Giants play their best when they have their ears pinned back and that can’t happen if they're too busy licking wounds before the game.
“I think we need to start giving more credit after the game as opposed to before the game,” Rolle said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “Personally, that’s not anything I’ve been too fond of. Do I respect my opponents? I respect them.
You know, I’ll give credit when credit’s due. But I’m not going to kiss anyone’s butt before the game. That’s something that I’m never, ever going to do as long as I’m playing the game of football.”
“I think we just need to get back to being a little nasty, having a nasty attitude, get a little bit more dog in us, and go out there and play the game.”
