That doesn't mean Rolle is taking the Patriots at their word, though.
âTypical Patriot fashion,â Rolle said of the team's comments, according to the New York Daily News. âThey give compliments to everyone they play.â
Rolle cited the Giants' 24-20 win against the Patriots in Week 9 as good reason why New England should praise the Giants. But he said he and his teammates are taking the effusive compliments for exactly what they're worth.
âBefore the game, after the game, you give them their respect,â Rolle said. âBut during the game, thereâs no respect at all.â
