Super Bowl XLVI: Antrel Rolle Doesn't Mind The Wait

The two-week delay between the NFL conference championship games and the Super Bowl seems like an eternity. At some point everyone runs out of things to analyze, things to talk about and things to do while waiting for the game. Antrel Rolle of the New York Giants said Tuesday that the break before playing the New England Patriots in the 2012 Super Bowl is one he and his teammates can use.

"I'm not too antsy. This last stretch has been an exhausting one, a lot of hard work, you're just putting everything to the side for these five games, which was very much needed. It took a lot of mental space, as well as physical pounding and doing whatever it took to get to this point," Rolle said. "And you know, once we're here, we're not going to stop now. So I'm going to enjoy this little time off, and once we come back to work on Thursday, I will be ready and full speed. Like I said, it all starts in practice."

Rolle and the Giants have, basically, played five consecutive elimination game. Sitting at 7-7 with two games remaining in the regular season the Giants would have been knocked out of the playoffs had they lost either of their final two games. They defeated the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys, however. In the playoffs, the Giants have vanquished the Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers.
