Antrel Rolle hits hard: NY Giants look dead

There's one characteristic that is noticeably lacking on the Giants in the eyes of safety Antrel Rolle: passion.

It’s a word he used repeatedly throughout an interview on WFAN Tuesday, roughly 12 hours after the Giants fell at home to the Colts for their third straight loss. He’s not seeing enough passion throughout the entire roster.

“I’m gonna play with passion. I’m gonna play with all-out fire,” Rolle said in his weekly paid radio spot. “Whether you make the play or not, whether you get beat or not, that doesn’t control your emotions. That shouldn’t control your approach to the game. It shouldn’t control your attitude and passion throughout the game. And I just think that’s something we’re missing a lot. On our sideline it’s very dead. Throughout the course of a game it’s dead. We need a pulse.”

He added that players need to treat the game as if it’s their career and not their job.

“You’ve got to get down, you’ve got to get dirty,” he said. “There’s no room for nice guys in this league.”
