Antrel Rolle Really, Really Doesn’t Care Who Wins The NFC East

NEW YORK (WFAN) – The Giants are officially eliminated from playoff contention.

And with three weeks remaining in the NFL regular season, it’s coming down to the Cowboys and the Eagles for the NFC East crown.

After Dallas (7-6) lost to Chicago on Monday night, Philadelphia leads the division by a game.

So which team does Giants safety Antrel Rolle think will win the division?

“To be honest with you, I don’t care,” the captain told WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts during his weekly spot on Tuesday. “Whoever wins, wins. Whoever wins, they deserve to win. To me, to be honest with you, I don’t care who is the better of the two. I’m just worried about the Giants right now.”

The Giants put on an ugly display on Sunday, falling to the Chargers, 37-14, at Qualcomm Stadium. The G-Men were never in the game, as the Chargers led 24-0 at halftime and 31-7 after three quarters.

What went wrong?

“I think Sunday was a true testament of us going out there and being flat,” the two-time Pro Bowler said. “We all understand that in this league there’s no room for error. There’s no room for, even, do-overs. You gotta go out there, you gotta have a sense of urgency, you gotta have a sense of intensity. And that was something I think we were lacking in all three phases of the game.”

Rolle doesn’t want to hear that the team’s subpar effort had anything to do with having to fly out west.

“To be honest with you, you can say whatever you want to say,” Rolle told Joe & Evan. “I’m not a guy that really makes excuses, because we have traveled to the West Coast before (and won) …. You can’t say it’s because of travel, you can’t say it’s because of the schedule. I just feel like, as players, we all understand that nothing’s going to be given to us.”

The Giants will host the mighty Seahawks on Sunday before finishing their season against the Lions in Detroit and the Redskins at MetLife Stadium.
