New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle continues to remain confident that his team will be hoisting the Lombardi trophy when everything is all said and done this coming Sunday.
“We are going to win this thing,” Rolle said during media day.”We are going to win this thing for a lot of good reasons.”
Rolle did state that he wasn’t guaranteeing a Giants win, but he was rather letting everyone know how confident the Giants are as a team.
Rolle is also very confident in the Giants ability to slow down the Patriots’ tight end tandem of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, when he was asked if they’re up to the task.
“I definitely think so,” Rolle said. “Tom Brady is an exceptional quarterback, but I feel like if we put our mind to it and play the way we have been playing, and if all of us go out there and play as one, we might not be able to stop everything he is doing but we’ll stop a whole lot of the things he is trying to do.”
“We are definitely going to take care of business,” Rolle added

Giants safety claims team's winning mentality born during Week 16 against Jets
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...
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. ...
You would think the Giants would avoid all gun references after the shot that felled their 2008 season. But Antrel Rolle insisted the safeties' nickname for themselves - "AK-47, wih the clip" - has nothing to do with firearms.

A year ago Giants safety Antrel Rolle said that it was time for coach Tom Coughlin to realize it’s 2011 and update his coaching methods. But in 2012, Rolle says he has come around to see the wisdom in the way Coughlin does things. “My first season I questioned a lot of things that coach…
The New York media had a sour reaction to Tom Brady expressing hope about winning the Super Bowl on Sunday and the Boston media almost got a chance to return fire during Super Bowl Media Day.

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.
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. Of course, we’ve also been treated to the rematch hype and David Tyree’s catch, as expected, but I’ve really been hoping that we could...
The 2011 season has been a roller coaster ride for the New York Giants. From two disappointing losses to the Washington Redskins and the Seattle Seahawks to clutch victories at New England, the Jets and sweeping the Cowboys to claim their first Playoff appearance and Super Bowl appearance since 2008. Regardless of the outcome in the Super Bowl, the Giants underperformed in many areas...
INDIANAPOLIS — The Giants aren’t afraid to express themselves. If they have something to say, there’s enough big personalities in their locker room that it will be said. But they were on their best behavior as they arrived in Indianapolis this afternoon.
