Football has not been any fun for Jason Pierre-Paul this season.
Pierre-Paul has gone from All-Pro to all frowns. The sacks aren't coming: Pierre-Paul has just 1 1/2 in four games in 2012 after getting 16 1/2 a year ago and terrorizing opposing passers down the stretch and into the postseason as the Giants won the Super Bowl.
He says he looks in the mirror and asks himself why he isn't ''running around like a big kid,'' but promises he will be doing that on Sunday against Cleveland.
Fellow defensive end Justin Tuck agrees with Pierre-Paul's assessment, but can't pinpoint the reason things haven't been as enjoyable. He doesn't think it's the high expectations accompanying the Giants' defensive line because `'expectations have always been high around here.''

There were some pretty classic moments between Osi Umenyiora and LeSean McCoy, including the wish of a Happy Mother's Day and the accusation of being a ballerina, but the feud between the New York Giants defensive end and Philadelphia Eagles running back came to an end on Sunday night following a 19-17 Iggles victory. "[Umenyiora] said, 'Let's be done with it.&...

Philly Sports World Fantasy Week 5Week 5 game of the week Cleveland at the N.Y. Giants. Coming off a tough loss in Philly the Giants you can expect will come out with guns a blazing.

We're kidding, but maybe we shouldn't be…the New York Giants injury situation is rising to almost comedic levels as the 0-4 Cleveland Browns come rolling into town. Paul Dottino of WFAN reports that Antrel Rolle is likely to miss the upcoming game (though Rolle disagrees), joining fellow starting safety Kenny Phillips in that regard. There's no reason to expect Hakeem...
