Antrel Rolle still angry over loss to Eagles

Antrel Rolle said the Giants need to "have that dog in you." He's apparently removed his own leash.

After remaining conspicuously quiet for most of the season, Rolle on Monday said it was time for him to start speaking his mind. On Tuesday he held true to that promise during his weekly paid spot on WFAN, and he was still frothing over the Giants' Sunday night loss to the Eagles.

"Do they compare to us? Maybe," Rolle said. "Are they better than us? Not at all. And that's the thing that really gets under my skin."

Rolle said Monday he was unhappy with the team's reaction to Philadelphia's physical play, noting that it took "all my strength" to remain on the sideline when Eli Manning was blindsided after an interception. On Tuesday he addressed DeSean Jackson flipping the ball at defensive coordinator Perry Fewell after a long catch.

"Had I know he did what he did during that game, I would have did everything in my power to whack [him] out," Rolle said.

Rolle reiterated his thoughts from Monday that the Giants are "too calm."

The newly-outspoken safety also addressed the idea of a second-half collapse -- he pinned that trend on the players and not Tom Coughlin who "has not taken one snap" -- and the team's propensity to have games come down to the final minute.

"We're better than that," he said.
