Antrel Rolle is no stranger to speaking his mind. He’s also no stranger to being confident. Often times for Rolle, that has created a volatile mix.
Rolle raised some eyebrows — and perhaps elbowed out some more room for himself on the Patriots’ bulletin board — when he said the Giants wouldn’t have boarded the plane to Indianapolis this week if they weren’t confident they would walk away winners.
Rolle is quick to give the Patriots respect, but just as quick to point out he’s simply saying what he truly believes.
“I’m not guaranteeing anything,” Rolle told “NFL Total Access” Tuesday. “But I did mean what I said when I said that we wouldn’t have boarded the plane if we didn’t expect to win the game.”
Rolle was asked if he’s simply saying what everyone else on the Giants is thinking.
“Without a doubt,” he responded. “And we do.”
It’s no secret the Giants are a confident bunch. It’s been a common theme throughout the team’s current seven-game winning streak. And Rolle is plenty comfortable telling everyone as much.
“We’re a confident team,” he said. “I’m a confident player. This is what you need at this point. This is (the) Super Bowl.”
