Antrel Rolle: New York Giants Were Not Ready Against Philadelphia Eagles

There's a difference between being well prepared for a game and being ready to play. After a disappointing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle told WFAN his team did not come to play.

"The game plan was excellent," Rolle told WFAN's Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Tuesday. "Were we ready to play come Sunday? No."

Rolle said the Eagles were the tougher team on Sunday night, which was only made more disappointing because Rolle felt, and still feels, the Giants are the better team.

"I'm the kind of person, like, I'm gonna call a spade a spade," said Rolle. "The truth of the matter is, that team is a good team. And I respect the Eagles. ... But at the end of the day, do they compare to us? Maybe. Are they better than us? Not at all.

"And that's the thing that really gets under my skin, you know what I mean? We win as a team and we lose as a team, without a doubt. But give yourself a chance. You know what I mean? That team, there's no way we should have lost that game Sunday night. There's no way we should have lost a few of the games we lost at the end of the day. And it got to the point where, enough is enough, man."

Despite his obvious disappointment, Rolle remains confident that the Giants will regroup.

"We're gonna get it. We're a great team. We are a great football team," said Rolle. "And that's why I'm so upset, because I feel like we haven't gone out there and just played (like) we're a great team week in and week out. Why does every game, we got to come down to the last two minutes of the game?

"We're better than that, man. We're better than that. And as soon as we all get on the same page and understand and believe that we're better, you'll see a better Giants football team."
