Rolle keeps rolling: Giants safety calls out 49ers TE Davis

Can the Giants be stopped? Unknown. Can Antrel Rolle stop talking? Not even remotely possible.

Rolle, the safety who's gone from tasty barbecue to functional piece of a strong defense, already made it clear he believes the Giants are a team of destiny. Now's he's turning his attention to comments made by 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, who said last weekend he hoped -- quite understandably -- the Giants would beat the Packers so the NFC Championship Game would be played in San Francisco.

Davis got the outcome he was looking for, of course, but Rolle has a word of warning for his Sunday opponent.

"They better be careful what they ask for," Rolle said Tuesday on WFAN-AM (via the New York Daily News). "Because their wish has been granted."

Rolle said he "can only hope" Davis said what he did on account of the home-field ramifications involved. Rolle followed that with another bravado-fest that sounded like the type of thing a professional wrestler would bark at "Mean" Gene Okerlund before the Royal Rumble.

"I don't give a damn who we're playing, man," he 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 then drifted into an inflamed dream state, where he climbed to a top turnbuckle and delivered a flying elbow drop on Cris Collinsworth.)
