Giants S Antrel Rolle Thinks Tom Coughlin is "Too Uptight"

New York Giants Pro Bowl safety Antrel Rolle thinks highly of Tom Coughlin, the person.

Head coach Tom Coughlin, however, can be a bit too uptight for Rolle's liking.

"Honestly, that's where the problem comes with me, as a coach," Rolle said during a joint interview with teammate Kenny Phillips on Sid Rosenberg's radio show on WQAM in Miami. "When you're talking about the coaching side of things, do I feel like things are a little too uptight? Yeah, I do. If he just loosened up just a little bit, run the ship the way you want to run it, run the program the way you want to run it, but let us have a little fun, because at the end of the day that's what it's all about.

"He has to understand we have a great team, we don't have guys with discipline problems. We're going to pretty much handle our own outside of football. When it comes to football we're going to take care of our business on the field. Just let us have a little fun a little bit, man. I like the coach, I understand what he's trying to do but he has to understand it's 2011, man, things have changed."

Rolle signed a five-year, $37 million contract with the Giants last March, and is going to the Pro Bowl after totaling 87 tackles, 1 interception and a shared quarterback sack in 16 games this season.
