New York Giants: Antrel Rolle And Justin Tuck Are Team’s Spokesmen
No matter the outcome of the game, the New York Giants can always rely on two players to put their two cents on what’s going on with the team. Antrel Rolle and Justin Tuck seem to have an affinity for the microphone, talking to the media and to anyone who would listen about their struggles in their 0-4 start.
While Rolle and Tuck are the team’s defensive leaders, there is no doubt that Eli Manning is the overall team leader. However, many people know Manning isn’t one to run to the media and break down their struggles. There have been other leaders on the team in the past and the present.
Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs were the team’s emotional leaders when they were with the Giants before, but there were hardly any soundbites from them. Jacobs has run his mouth in the past, but it wasn’t a weekly thing. Victor Cruz is one of the team’s emotional leaders currently, playing with fire and passion, but he’s not making any noteworthy statements on a weekly basis either.
It always seems to come from Rolle and Tuck, which means they have to be declared as the team’s spokesmen. After another embarrassing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Tuck told reporters he’d punch a player in the mouth if they questioned head coach Tom Coughlin. Rolle also had something to say to the media, telling reporters he believes the Giants can go undefeated the rest of the way.
Rolle even asked Coughlin if he could speak to the team in a meeting. It’s quite comical when you look at it, but they should know that talk is cheap. The games won’t take care of themselves. The Giants have to get their first win out of the way, and there’s no better way to do that than to do it against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles, who are also struggling.
