T-Rock's Take on the Giants
Ray Lewis’ leadership, mentoring and guidance are propelling the Ravens towards this year’s Super Bowl. But it turns out that the soon-to-be-retired, soon-after-to-be-enshrined linebacker also had a big hand in helping the Giants to win last year’s Super Bowl.

Victor Cruz said he was happy with the team’s performance against the Eagles on Sunday. It showed the kind of team the Giants should be.
“Unfortunately,” he said, “we couldn’t be that team when it mattered most.”
Both Cruz and Antrel Rolle, who was also on WFAN today, addressed that idea of being able to turn it on and off. While Rolle said he couldn’t say for sure that players on the...Read more »
Antrel Rolle is sorry.
That’s the message the Giants safety had as he punctuated the 2012 season with his final weekly appearance on WFAN on Wednesday. Rolle was asked for his parting thoughts on the season that ended Sunday with a 9-7 record but no playoff berth, and he took a repentant posture in answering the question.
“My final message would be … to apologize for a letdown,” Rolle...Read more »
Now that the Giants have their dog, Antrel Rolle says it’s not going back on the leash.
The Giants’ safety who last week sparked the team to be nastier and then backed up those words with strong play against the Saints on Sunday, was back on the radio for his weekly WFAN spot on Tuesday. Rolle said that the Giants have not intention of letting up after finding their ferocity.
“We have...Read more »
Antrel Rolle didn’t name names, but Osi Umenyiora was surely one of the teammates he had in mind – along with others – when he said this week that the Giants are too lovey-dovey towards opponents when they talk about them in the week leading up to games. It was Osi, remember, who said he would call Robert Griffin III “Sir” prior to their last outing, who said he had given up on trying to get sacks...Read more »
Prince Amukamara did not make any threats towards A.J. Green. He did not say he would answer the receiver’s comments with his pads, as Antrel Rolle did. Nor did he recommend that Green duck if he sees him, as Rolle did.
No, Prince is much more subtle than that.
What he did was point out that while Green is a “flawless” receiver, for some reason there aren’t many defenses in the league...Read more »
A.J. Green thinks there are plenty of places to make plays against the Giants’ secondary. And he isn’t afraid to tell them.
Appearing on WFAN this morning, the Bengals’ receiver took a shot at the Giants’ secondary and it’s recent lapses by telling hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton: “I feel like they’ve got a lot of holes in their defense.”
OK, Green did have some praise. But not...Read more »
Most people wondered whether Stevie Brown would still have a roll in the Giants’ secondary once Kenny Phillips came back from his knee injury. Turns out the Giants were thinking just the opposite and trying to figure out how Phillips would fit in with Brown still on the field.
Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said yesterday that having all three of the Giants’ safeties healthy is “a good...Read more »
Where ‘Trel at? Well, today, he was on the field.
The Giants’ safety was participating in practice today, having apparently cleared the concussion protocols that kept him sidelined on Wednesday. Rolle hit his head on the turf late in the game against the Cowboys and missed the final two minutes. He had to go through NFL-mandated screenings before getting back on the field.

The Giants are ready to RSVP to Jerry Jones’ invitation.
This Sunday is the game the Cowboys owner was referring to during the preseason when kicked off training camp by famously inviting everyone to “come to Cowboys Stadium and watch us beat the Giants' (butts).”
It’s a slight the Giants have not forgotten.
“I remember that very well,” Victor Cruz said. “But we’ve still got to...Read more »
