Rolle: 'I Don't Think I Was Talking Out Of Turn'

Maybe Antrel Rolle “understands better,” after speaking with New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.

That, however, does not mean he is taking Tuesday’s critical comments back.

“I don’t think I was talking out of turn, at all,” Rolle said. “I think I said what needed to be said. You know, no matter who heard it, it needed to be said. Like I said, I should have definitely come to Tom Coughlin before anyone else, which was a bad on my part, but what I said needed to be said.”

Rolle insisted that he was speaking out of concern for the well being of the team and not out of frustration about what happened in one game.

“I don’t think there was enough fight,” Rolle said. “I don’t think there was enough being said. I don’t think there was enough attitude, enough anger toward getting your butt whupped the way we were getting whupped. That was my problem and the issue I had. If I don’t have that issue, then it’s a problem in my eyes.”
