Rolle: 'We are going to win this thing'
Yesterday he said he was "expecting" the Giants to win. Today he outright guaranteed it before trying to take it back moments later.
"We are going to win this thing," Rolle said during Media Day at Lucas Oil Stadium on Tuesday. "We are going to win this thing for a lot of good reasons."
“I didn’t say we’re going to win," he pleaded. "I said we’re going to go out there and do whatever it takes to win. I didn’t guarantee anything."
Aside from being caught in a flip-flopping lie, he's a hypocrite even if he doesn't realize it. Referring to the week 16 game with the Jets Rolle said “there was a lot of trash talk throughout the week, and we just said, ‘We’ll let our play do the talking for us.’
The Giants just let their play do the talking?
- We have Victor Cruz saying he's 'salivating when he sees the Patriots defensive backfield', and that 'when he looks at the video he can't help but get excited'.
- Tom Brady says 'hopefully we'll have a victory party' and the Giants and all the New York media is up at arms, but Cruz guarantees a win for the Giants and it only gets mentioned once, buried sixteen paragraphs deep in a fluff piece about Cruz and McCourty being high school rivals.
At a pep rally at School 21 in his hometown of Paterson, NJ yesterday, Cruz gave the frenzied crowd of 5,000 a Joe Namath-style guarantee that he’ll prevail against his old nemesis.
“We are definitely coming back with a ‘W,’ ” he said to wild cheers.
- On Friday Mario Manningham says he can't wait to expose Julian Edelman. Tuesday he follows that up by saying Edelman is not a real defensive back
- Before their first round Justin Tuck called the Falcons a bunch of dirt bags.
Note to Rolle and the rest of the Giants: just accept it; you like to talk a lot before the game. If that's what you feel you need to do before a game for motivation, fine; whatever. But please spare me this complete and utter bull**** that you 'let your play do the talking for you'.
