“As a team and organization, we know that the Washington Redskins is not a better team than us,” Rolle said on WFAN radio (via ESPNNY.com’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “We know that hands down. If we played them 100 times, they might win five. They won that day. It never leaves a good taste in your mouth when you lose to an opponent that you know you are better than.”
Rolle didn’t think much of Grossman, who completed 21 of 34 passes to six receivers for 305 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Washington’s 28-14 win. The Redskins, he said, were not better than he thought they’d be and the Giants’ secondary, like the rest of their defense, was decimated by injury.
“We’ll definitely prove that next time around,” Rolle said. “He is going to feel the Giants come the next time around. We will take care of that when the time comes.”
Rolle had six tackles on the day — and an unnecessary roughness penalty in the fourth quarter that gave the Redskins a first down at the Giants’ 33. Washington went on to score for a two-TD lead.
“We understood where things went wrong,” Rolle continued. “I don’t think we played a good game as a team, I don’t think we played good on special teams, on defense or on offense. The Giants will come out there and we will show the world what we are all about and we will come play.”
