Antrel Rolle Proclaims Giants Will Win Super Bowl, Backs off Guarantee
Giants safety Antrel Rolle declared that his team would win the Super Bowl Tuesday, but then he changed his tune.
“We’re going to win this thing,” Rolle said at Media Day Tuesday according to the Newark Star-Ledger. “We’re going to win this thing for a lot of good reasons.”
When he was asked if he was guaranteeing a win, he backed down.
“I didn’t say we’re going to win, I said we’re going to go out there and do whatever it takes to win,” Rolle said. “I didn’t guarantee anything.”
Why did Rolle reverse course? He probably is under orders from his coach not to create any bulletin-board type material. The Giants might not want to do anything to piss off the Patriots before Sunday and give them any more motivation.
I’m not sure why Rolle backed down; when he declared that his team could not be beat, they defeated the 49ers. He should maintain his confidence.
