Giants Safety Antrel Rolle Not Worried About Wes Walker Matchup

In case you're wondering, New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle isn't even remotely worried about taking on New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker this Sunday. Welker leads the NFL in receptions and is second in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, but when asked Wednesday, Rolle couldn't think of what made Welker so difficult to cover. In fact, he didn't think Welker would be much trouble at all.

 "I don't know," Rolle said. "You've got to ask those guys he's giving trouble to," Rolle said. I don't plan on having to answer to those questions."    

Though Rolle did credit Welker for being a "monster elite receiver," he refused to acknowledge it would be a "mismatch" in Welker's favor if Rolle was given the task of covering New England's slot receiver.

"A mismatch for who?" Rolle asked. "He is a great receiver and you don't take anything from him, but he is human at the end of the day. And like I said, the game has to be played on Sunday. I'll answer more questions after the game."

"I can handle anything."
