After earning their biggest win of the season last week against the Cowboys, the Giants laid an egg today against the Redskins. But Giants defensive back Antrel Rolle says the real Giants are the ones you saw last week, not the ones on the field this week.

“Washington, they’re not a bad team at all. But we are 10 times better than what we showed out there on the field today,” Rolle said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

The truth is, as former Giants coach Bill Parcells used to say, the Giants are what their record says they are. And the record says the Giants are a .500 team. Maybe they’re not all that much better than they showed today against the Redskins.

The good news for the Giants is that they still control their playoff destiny: Win their last two games, and they win the NFC East. But in order to win their last two games, the Giants are going to need to be about 10 times better than they were today.
