After the New York Giants 17-16 defeat to the Washington Redskins Giants safety Antrel Rolle told WFAN that he and his teammates need to get "nasty" and show the "dog" inside them.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul agrees with Rolle.
âI'm behind Rolle 100 percent,â Pierre-Paul said via CBSSports.com. âWe've been playing like we haven't. I think we're a little soft, but I think we'll get there. We haven't played our best game this year, and I know that for a fact."
Pierre-Paul added via NFL.com:Â "As a defense, we have to make a statement," Pierre-Paul said. "We haven't made a statement ever since, I'll say, San Francisco. Well, I'm lying, because we did beat up on Green Bay quite a little bit. But, ever since then, we haven't made a statement. We've just been losing. And we're all not playing together. When you're a team, on an organization like this, you've got to play together as one.
"Otherwise, you'll keep going downhill."
Giants now hold just a one game lead in the NFC East over the Dallas Cowboys and Redskins. Â
The Giants final four games include the New Orleans Saints at home Dec. 9, the Atlanta Falcons away Dec. 16, the Baltimore Ravens away Dec. 23 and the Philadelphia Eagles at home Dec. 30.
BEST OF MAXIM
Antrel Rolle wants to see a little more of the dog from the New York Giants, and not just the defense.
This dog isn't a blitz though.
The veteran safety who is the sparkplug on that side of the ball said Wednesday that the Giants (7-5) need to start showing the tenacity of one of those nasty dogs who is not out to make any friends if it wants to get back to the playoffs.
The New York Giants are mad. After their Monday night loss to the Redskins, those that are students of the game knew that they would be.
Atypically for them at this stage of the season that means that they next team up on their roster has to pay a large tax for the events of the game prior.Â

For whatever reason, the New York Giants seem to fall asleep in the month of November and into early December every season. Fortunately, they tend to turn things on at the end of the regular season and during the playoffs.

It was no secret that the New York Giants praised the talents of Robert Griffin III leading up to their game with the Washington Redskins new superstar but now, after the Giants 17-16 loss to their division rivals, one New York player thinks his team showed too much respect.

The other day Antrel Rolle went on a mini-rant scolding his New York Giants teammates for gushing over opponent Robert Griffin III before the team played the Washington Redskins.

Following J.R. Smithâs game-winning shot in Charlotte Wednesday night, the Knicks guard celebrated with the salsa dance made famous by Giants wide receiver, and friend, Victor Cruz. Cruz, who played AAU ball with J.R. growing up, caught the game and has some pointers on how Smith can improve his dance moves:
âWhen he hit it I almost jumped off the couch and then when he was coming...
When he enters the cold tub now at New York Giants headquarters, Prince Amukamara does so voluntarily.
Amukamara's reputation took a bath this summer when a video of the second-year cornerback being roughly dumped in the icy water by Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was posted by another teammate (punter Steve Weatherford) on the Internet.
As he was being carried toward...

It was looking like a lost season for Pierre GarĂ§on and his owners just a few weeks ago.Â After starting the season with a 4 catch 109 yard performance with a touchdown in the first quarter against New Orleans, plenty of fantasy owners who jumped on him late as a WR3 had to become completely elated.Â Here was a wide receiver whoâd put together solid seasons with Peyton Manning...
