Giants' Antrel Rolle: 'I've Always Expected Greatness From This Team'

New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle today discussed the mindset of the team as they prepare for the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers on Jan. 22 at Candlestick Park.

We're not going to be denied at this point. We understand what we have as a team. It's not all about talent. It's about chemistry. We're gelling at this point. Coaches and players are on the same page at the same time. We have one goal in mind, which is to win the championship.

Rolle also said that this year's Giants team feels different to him than when he was on the 2008 Arizona Cardinals.

This run feels different - more of the fact that this is what I expect from this team. I've always expected greatness from this team although we didn't do it week-in and week-out throughout the season. But that doesn't matter. What matters is that we're here and we're striving and we're fighting to get better each and every week.

The 2008 Cardinals went 9-7 like this year's Giants and reached the Super Bowl, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Can this year's Giants team top that Cardinals team?
