Safety Antrel Rolle

Posted Jan 18, 2012

Antrel Rolle talks about 49ers Tight End Vernon Davis and the challenges he presents


 

Q: What makes Vernon Davis so dangerous?

A: He’s an NFL tight end. He’s good at what he does. He’s very explosive, a deep threat. Once he gets the ball he can get up field. He can make defenders miss. I think that’s what makes him pretty special at his position.


Q: Is he comparable to some of the guys you’ve played?

A: I think he possesses different talents. I think they all possess different talents. I think he’s a lot faster than pretty much every tight end that you’re going to face in this league. I think he’s definitely amongst the fastest, if not the fastest. I think that’s what puts him over the edge in the tight end category.


Q: How hard is it to block out the Super Bowl and concentrate on this upcoming game?

A: You think about it. I think that’s what keeps you driving, but at the same time we have to take it one game at a time, one play at a time. I think that is our primary focus and that’s going to be our only focus going into this game.


Q: How will the stomach bug affect Eli Manning?

A: It’s not going to affect him. Eli will be fine. Nothing’s going to stop him at this point. I’m pretty sure a lot of us feel the same way. He’s our leader. I’m sure he’s going to come out there, be prepared and lead us on Sunday.


Q: How will the DB/WR matchup change in the rain and mud?

A: It’s not going to affect us much. We just have to react to it. It may alter their game plan a little bit and probably make them run the ball a little bit more and slow up their slows a little bit – nothing that any player in the NFL hasn’t faced before. We’ve played in muddy games, rainy games, snow. It doesn’t matter what it is. We’ve all been a part of those games so I don’t think the weather is going to have much effect on the game at all.


Q: How does a defense practice for the mud and rain?

A: It’s not anything that you practice. You make sure that you have the proper equipment, maybe get some studded cleats that can grip the ground and stick in the ground a little bit harder. You play the game. You can’t worry about the weather conditions. That’s out of our control. That’s nothing we can control. That’s nothing we’re going to try to control. Just keep your eye on the prize. Let’s focus on this game.


Q: Are other guys sick?

A: I don’t know. I didn’t even know Eli came down with a bug until [Rachel Nichols] told me. We’re just going through the motions of practice, trying to make sure that we have the best up-tempo practice that we can have.


Q: Hakeem Nicks said that the mud creates an advantage for the receiver because he knows where he’s going. Do you agree with that?

A: That’s Hakeem’s statement. That’s not my statement. I’m a defender. I don’t feel that there are any advantages when you’re playing the game of football. We’re both going to be playing on the same field. [Wide receivers] know what they’re doing when the field is dry. I think it’s the same scenario, to be honest with you.


Q: Do you remember the feeling of going to the Super Bowl with the Cardinals?

A: I’m not trying to cut you short, but we’re not answering questions about the Super Bowl right now. I’ll answer all of the questions you want about San Francisco, but questions about the Super Bowl I’m not going to answer.


Q: What does the secondary need to do against a quarterback that can run like Alex Smith?

A: We’re going to play our game. We’re going to play our game. We faced a guy, Aaron Rodgers, last week that can run just as well as Alex Smith. I played against him twice a year in Arizona so we’re very aware of his capabilities. He is a great athlete as far as running the ball and throwing the ball. With that being said, we’re going to rally to it. We’re going to rally to it. I can promise you one thing, he won’t run the ball too much.
