A member of the 2008-2009 Arizona Cardinals, Rolle suffered through an excruciating last second loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII. With that now behind him, he focuses on potential personal redemption in Super Bowl XLVI with the Giants. And after struggling through the many ups and downs of the 2011 regular season, Rolle feels the Giants will not be denied in their quest for the franchise's fourth Lombardi Trophy.
“I was a Cardinal then; I’m a Giant now,” said Rolle. “I think we’re in a better situation. We’re not going to be denied. We’re not going to be denied. We’ve come too far, and this road has been way too tough for us to come up short. We will do whatever it takes.”
The difference between confident and cocky is knowing you can get a job done, but understanding it's a not give in. The Giants certainly are confident and walking a fine line. They understand they're capable of bringing home the Lombardi Trophy, but not cocky enough to think all they need to do is show up. And when Rolle says they're not going to be denied, you get the feeling that, well, they're not going to be denied.
