It took almost 9 weeks, but Jason Pierre-Paul now seems to have a pulse for the New York Giants.
Pierre-Paul chose not to have back surgery until two weeks before training camp started, and he’s now just getting back to full speed as a player.
Pierre-Paul said Wednesday that he feels like it is high time for him to “just go out there and handle my business,” and then told the New York Daily News that the “Raiders will need to bring their A game to stop him.’
“For the past three years, I’ve been rushing the passer, you just see fear in the quarterback’s eyes. You see fear in the tackle’s eyes. They respect me. They know when they hit the field, they have a problem. And this week, they’re gonna have a problem,” Pierre-Paul said, via the New York Daily News. “Come this Sunday, I’m rushing the passer, stopping the run. I’m gonna be all over that field. They better bring their ‘A’ game, that’s what I can tell you.”
If the Giants have any hope of digging out this hole they caused for themselves, Jason Pierre-Paul will have to be dominant.
