Here's something we never ever expected to read today (or ever): Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is known to some of his teammates as the "Black Tim Tebow."
The backstory: Amukamara who it turns out is actual royalty told Muscle and Fitness in a recent interview that he takes great pride in never putting alcohol in his body and maintaining his commitment to celibacy. Those two facts have everything to do with the comparison to the former Heisman Trophy winner.
"Yeah some people call me the Black Tim Tebow" Amukamura admitted adding: "Yeah I am a virgin. I'm not ashamed to say that."
Slow-clap for Amukamara. In a profession where we're regularly reporting on off-field issues that range from plain dumb to mouth-agape inconceivable it's nice to hear about a player who not only can live within the confines of the law but actually seems to be a decent human being.
More good news for Amukamara: He's engaged thanks in part to teammat...

The New York Giants have always built there defense around the pass rush. They rely on the ability to rush the quarterback to help their defense stop the pass. So far through two games the pass rush has not been a factor for the Giants. This is their biggest problem on the defensive side of the ball. Who can fix this problem for the Giants? The answer is Jason Pierre-Paul.

If anything, it looks like he still has a lot of rust to shake off after missing the offseason due to back surgery.
But that didn't stop JPP from speaking up after...
