Giants' Rolle must fall in line

The Giants were not happy to hear the borderline comments made by FS Antrel Rolle about head coach Tom Coughlin, even if they were not incendiary. "Honestly, I'm not having the fun I'm used to having," Rolle said after the season. "When you're talking about the coaching side of things, do I feel like things are a little too uptight? Yeah, I do." Rolle then went on to praise Jets head coach Rex Ryan and was joined in near chorus by fellow secondary member, Kenny Phillips. Although Rolle had a good season and the Giants want to continue with him as their starting safety, they were disappointed that Rolle would step outside what they believe to be their inner sanctum with comments to the media. The Giants feel they are extremely close to something special heading into the offseason, coming off a 10-win year with a talented roster, and the last thing they need is for players such as Rolle and Phillips stepping outside Coughlin's design for a tightly knit unit where coaches are not questioned publicly.
