Rolle questions Giants leadership

Giants FS Antrel Rolle said on New York radio station WFAN this morning that he thinks his team lacks leadership and he was disappointed with how the team prepared for their Week Two game vs. the Colts.

"I saw some things I wasn't too fond of in that locker room. I felt like there was no one that stepped up to the plate when the opportunity presented itself," Rolle said.

"I don't take anything away from any player. I love my teammates, my teammates are great, they're warriors. But I felt like, in a situation like that, something should have been done to a higher extent. I don't feel like there was enough done at all taking place in that game, especially a game of that magnitude."

Signed by the team to a five-year $37 million contract in March to shore up the Giants' secondary, Rolle did not mention any teammates or coaches specifically during the interview, but did have an issue with the team's travel schedule. The Giants arrived in Indianapolis at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, 29 hours before kickoff. Rolle said that was too early, as the team spent more than enough time sitting around their hotel and Lucas Oil Field before the game began.

Way we see it

This seems like a direct shot at head coach Tom Coughlin and defensive captain Justin Tuck. If Rolle has a problem with the way things are done, he should have addressed them privately, not over the New York airwaves.
