The Season of the Headline-Making Antrel Rolle Radio Interview Continues

This time, Rolle tells Sid Rosenberg, who now hosts a show on WQAM in Miami, that while he likes Tom Coughlin as a person, he's "too uptight" as a coach. Said Rolle: "I feel like if he just loosened up just a little bit, still run the ship the way you want to run it, still 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." (Unsurprisingly, given that assessment of Coughlin, Rolle is a fan of Rex Ryan's style, explaining that the Jets are "going to war for him.") Rolle also had company this time: Kenny Phillips appeared on the show as well and offered similar thoughts, both on Coughlin ("I am going into my fourth year, and I am still trying to feel him out. All I know is he's a straight guy, sometimes he is kind of loose. He is sort of like a general. That is basically the way he runs his football team") and on Ryan ("I would love to play for a guy like Rex. He goes to bat for his players. He'll take the blame, he allows you to be you. He's not asking you to hide. If you're a guy that likes to talk, go out and talk, long as you back it up."). [ESPN New York]
