Antrel Rolle takes a shot at Dallas Cowboys' Jason Garrett, Jerry Jones

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

New York Giants safety tells the NFL Network the Dallas Cowboys are "missing a couple pieces of the puzzle," but it isn't the players.

When it comes to Antrel Rolle, there are no secrets. He's a straight shooter.

So when the New York Giants safety appeared on the NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" Tuesday evening, he didn't dismiss questions about his NFC East rivals. In fact, he may have added another wrinkle to the fold.

On the show, Rolle said he looks forward to playing against the Dallas Cowboys, a team some are predicting could be a contender this coming season. Rolle added a caveat, though, alluding that his opponent's recent struggles are a product of poor coaching and management.

"The Dallas Cowboys are a good team," Rolle said. "Maybe they're missing a couple pieces of the puzzle, but I don't think the pieces they're missing are actually the players."

Not so subtle on Rolle's part, but clearly the safety thinks the Cowboys are being held back by owner/general manager Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett, who unquestionably is on the hot seat this season.

In true Rolle fashion, he wasn't done. His second comments pertaining to another NFC East squad were a bit more positive.

When asked about Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III coming off of right knee construction surgery, Rolle said he was "not so eager to see (him.)"

Just goes to show you where Rolle's respect lies when it comes to the teams he'll face twice this season. More interesting is how this plays out when the New York Giants travel to the House that Jerry Built for the '13 season opener on Sept. 8.
