Antrel Rolle says this season has been an 'eye-opener' for everyone

Giants safety Antrel Rolle once again put everything in perspective during his weekly appearance Tuesday on WFAN radio.

Asked about the Giants’ stunning 5-9 mark this season, Rolle was blunt and on the mark.

“I think this is something that is an eye-opener,” he said. “It’s an eye-opener to everyone. To myself, to Eli (Manning), to coach (Tom) Coughlin, to management. Some things need to be shaken up. That’s the reality of it.

“This year, obviously, it’s too late. We still have two games to go and we’re going to fight like hell. Come next year, come this off-season, things need to be addressed as far as the overall mindset. I think that’s something that’s extremely needed right now in our locker room.”

Rolle, who said personnel decisions are out of his area of expertise, said the Giants have been very inconsistent this season and need to establish an identity, one of playing hard and being competitive every week, not just some weeks.

“It’s about trying to get the win at all costs,” he said.

Rolle voiced unwavering support for Coughlin and was adamant that there’s no division on the team in the aftermath of his stinging comments following the Giants’ 23-0 shellacking by the Seahawks.

Following the Giants’ humiliating loss, Rolle said some players lacked heart and had no pulse. His thinly-veiled comments were obvious directed at the offense.

“First and foremost, there was never any division coming out of the locker room,” Rolle said. "The media is the media. They have their way of putting a spin on things.

“As professionals, as teammates, we have a way of talking and getting points across without ever getting personal. That’s all it was. There was never anything personal. There was never any separation. We’re still as close as we ever were.”
