Everyone wants to know which Giants team is real, the one that started the season a sloppy 0-2 or the one that has been crisply victorious in the last two games. Antrel Rolle said they're both the same with one minor difference.

"Just one word: Belief."

The starting safety and defensive captain said the biggest change between Weeks 1 and 2 and Weeks 3 and 4 was the addition of confidence.

"We're a very, very talented group," he said Tuesday in his weekly appearance on WFAN. "Once you put that confidence in that group? Man, watch out."

The practical, tangible key to the turnaround has been turnovers on both sides of the ball. In the first two games, the Giants had six giveaways and zero takeaways. The last two weeks they've had two giveaways and nine takeaways.

"As long as we don't hurt ourselves, we have a great shot," Rolle said. "That's what's been hurting us all along ? I think we're our own worst enemy and as long as we take care of that, I think the sky's the limit for this team. I have all the faith in the world in this team."
