INDIANAPOLIS -- Less than 24 hours later after saying the Giants boarded their flight with the mentality that "we are expecting to win" Super Bowl XLVI, Antrel Rolle reiterated his confident state of mind.
"We are going to win this thing," Rolle said when asked again about the Giants' mentality at Super Bowl media day on Tuesday. "We are going to win this thing for a lot of good reasons."
However, Rolle said he was not guaranteeing a Giants' victory over the Patriots when asked if that was a guarantee. The safety said he was just expressing how the confidence the Giants feel.
That confidence also extends to how Rolle feels about the Giants' ability to slow down Tom Brady and his offensive weapons like tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
"I definitely think so," Rolle said. "Tom Brady is an exceptional quarterback, but I feel like if we put our mind to it and play the way we have been playing, and if all of us go out there and play as one, we might not be able to stop everything he is doing but we'll stop a whole lot of the things he is trying to do."
"We are definitely going to take care of business," Rolle added. "Those guys are exceptional at what they do. And we understand that. But so are we."
