Giants touch down in Indy!

@SportsBata ..nuff said

#SuperBowlXLVI The NY Giants touched down in Indy, yesterday! The Giants are bold, confident, and ready to take on the New England Patriots! The crew: Eli, Coach Coughlin, Cruz, Nicks, Umenyiora, Tuck, Kiwanuka, Webster, and Rolle rolled into Indy on a charter plane out of Newark. Check out some comments from media day!

“We wouldn’t have boarded the plane if we didn’t expect to win,” safety Antrel Rolle said when asked about coming to the Super Bowl with the mentality of expecting to hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy. “I think that is the bottom line.”

“We have come here for one thing and one thing only which is to win,” Rolle added. “We are expecting to win this game come Sunday.” – espn

“We don’t feel like we’re the underdogs this time,” the veteran defensive end Justin Tuck said during a session with reporters yesterday shortly after the Giants’ arrival  at their downtown Indianapolis hotel for Super Bowl XLVI.nypost

Defensive end Justin Tuck said of the Giants’ confidence: “It can be misunderstood for cockiness, and whatever else. At the end of the day, when we step on that football field, we believe we are going to win. If you ask any athlete and he tells you anything different, then there is something wrong.”

“We’re very confident,” right guard Chris Snee said. “We feel like we’re playing good football right now. The thing is, you have two teams with great momentum — New England has won 10 games in a row.”

“I read his exact words and the way he phrased it,” linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said. “When you get to this level and when you get to this game, you are confident in yourself. I wouldn’t expect anything else. Now, if he comes out and throws out some legitimate trash talk, then we’ll talk.” – espn

“Being from a small school, I understand how that whole thing goes. I wasn’t  6-5, 220 pounds or I didn’t have off-the-wall statistics,” Cruz said yesterday,  when asked about the irony of being ignored in Indy two years ago and returning to the city now for the Super Bowl. “But I’d rather be here for the Super Bowl  now than the combine.” – nypost
