Jason Pierre-Paul: Enough About Last Season
The New York Giants lost a sizable division lead to the Washington Redskins, who were once 3-6 and appeared to be giving up on the season. The Giants were 6-2 in their first eight games, but they hit their usual wall in November and are now 2-4 in their last six games. So why aren’t analysts concerned about the Giants?
The Giants are simply getting by off of reputation and the players need to be careful because reputation doesn’t win Super Bowls. DE Jason Pierre-Paul seems to know this. “I don’t want to hear that. To me that’s all bull crap,” Pierre-Paul adamantly stated when it was brought up that the Giants play better with their backs to the wall.
The Giants have had impressive performances in the past with their backs up against the wall and desperately needing a win. However, history goes both ways for the Giants. They have also failed miserably with their backs against the wall, including the end of the 2010 season when they lost two of their final three games to be eliminated from postseason play.
The Giants are the defending champions until someone else eliminates them. The Giants have the talent to win another Super Bowl this season. However, they will not win a Super Bowl if they keep playing the way they’ve been playing in their past six games. They have been wildly inconsistent to say the least.
The Giants control their own destiny now. Two wins and they guarantee themselves at least a Wild Card berth. The Giants have to win these games. That means they have to come out playing with a purpose. The offense simply has to play better. Going from an impressive 38 points to 16 points, back up to 52 points and then being shut out is wildly inconsistent.
The leader of the charge is QB Eli Manning. This team performs well when he’s performing well, contrary to popular belief that the pass rush has been the key to their success. If Manning starts off the game on the wrong foot, it could be trouble for the Giants.
