Jeremy Maclin Slams Antrel Rolle

It's week three of the NFL regular season and that means the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles rivalry is about to be renewed. It also means trash talk is going to be a dominant fixture in the media over the next several days. In fact, it's already begun. Shocker, right?

The chatter began late Tuesday afternoon when Giants safety Antrel Rolle said he's covered Eagles wide receiver before and would be happy to do it again.

“You know, I’m no stranger to the cornerback position,” Rolle said. “I have handled DeSean Jackson one-on-one before, and I don’t see why I can’t handle him again.”

The comments didn't seem overly controversial, but Jackson's teammate, Jeremy Maclin, apparently took them to heart and fired back at Rolle and the New York Giants today.

"When you talk, you're either insecure or scared. And he's talking," Maclin said. "They have no business talking, because they haven’t done anything the last six times."

If we're talking about relevant history, well…the Eagles have never done anything. But that's neither here nor there.

Defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka also joined the trash talking party, saying the following about Eagles quarterback Michael Vick:

"I want to be able to go there & throw the knockout punch while the ref and the other guy are looking," Kiwi said.

Ding! Ding! Ding!
