It just wouldn’t be an NFL playoff game without a little trash talk between opponents.
The New York Giants are already stirring it up after hearing San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis ‘prayed’ that the Giants beat the Saints last Sunday to maintain home field advantage. Giants cornerback Antrel Rolle figured he just wanted to play the Giants, a team the Niners already have beaten this season, and was ready with his response:
“They better be careful what they ask for,” Rolle said. “Because their wish has been granted.”
Rolle later went on WFAN in New York, and added a little more:
“I don’t give a damn who we’re playing, man,” Rolle said. “That’s my take. I’ll take any opponent, any given day. That’s my attitude. If someone has a problem with it, oh well. But that’s how I am. That’s how I was raised. I don’t shy away from any opponent. My heart doesn’t pump any Kool-Aid, only blood. I’m ready for whenever, however, whatever, however it gets to me. I’m ready for it.”
Rolle also claimed the Giants ’couldn’t be beat’ on Monday, something that undoubtedly made it back to the Niners locker room I’d assume.
Get your popcorn ready folks, the show’s already begun.
