Antrel Rolle says team's confidence is 'shot a little bit'

Giants safety Antrel Rolle admitted today that the team’s confidence has taken a hit at 0-6.

The Giants lost to the Chicago Bears, 27-21, on Thursday night to fall to 0-6 for the first time since 1976, when the team lost its first nine games.

“I thought we fought hard but obviously, we didn’t win the game,” Rolle said today on his weekly radio spot on WFAN. “No one is going to give you an A for effort in this league. The only thing that matters is the win-loss column and right now we don’t have anything in the win column.

“It’s very frustrating and mind-boggling. I feel like our confidence is shot a little bit. Being 0-6 will do that to you. We have to rise about it all. We have to be mentally strong. We have to be as mentally strong as we’ve been in our careers. I know I’ve never been 0-6 at any level.”

So far, the Giants have presented a united front.

“Absolutely, we’re together,” Rolle said. “We’re more together now than we’ve ever been. Losing can cause a lot of things but one thing I’m proud of with this group about is no one has ever pointed any fingers.

“We’ll never ever do that. At the end of the day, we win as a team and we lose as a team.”

Rolle said that the upbringing break is a good thing for the Giants. They don't play again until Oct. 21 on Monday night against Minnesota.

"I think it's a very much needed thing," Rolle said.
