Stories of athletes "guaranteeing" big wins are a dime a dozen, and they don't always end well. What you'll hear out of New York Giants camp this week in Indianapolis isn't quite a guarantee, but the Giants expressed confidence today in beating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
"We wouldn't have boarded the plane if we didn't expect to win," Antrel Rolle told ESPN. "I think that is the bottom line. We have come here for one thing and one thing only, which is to win. We are expecting to win this game come Sunday."
The Giants enter this Sunday's Super Bowl on a five-game winning streak, including a must-win season finale against the Cowboys for the division title plus three playoff games.
"We're very confident," 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." The Giants and Pats kick off the big game at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
