Last Sept., Michael Vick suffered a broken hand against the Giants and was very critical of the refs after the game.  When reminded of that, Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul foreshadowed what is to come in the Sunday night game this weekend.

Pierre Paul couldn’t keep a straight face when speaking to reporters on Friday saying:  “”Yeah? We’ll give him (Vick) some more.”

Some more of what exactly?  Maybe more injuries, or it could be more complaints for the “real” refs who will be back for the first time this season.  What he probably meant was he’ll give him some more heartache as Vick has struggled securing the ball so far this season.

Pierre-Paul is on to something because the key to the Giants improving their record to 3-1 will be to put pressure on Vick early and often.  Pressuring Vick will make him uncomfortable and won’t allow deep threats such as DeSean Jackson to get down field.

The Eagles, and Vick especially, have had a hard time holding on to the football and the Giants will look to keep exploiting this weakness.  Through three games, the Eagles have a -6 turnover ratio and Vick has thrown six interceptions.  Getting Vick to move out of the pocket should only increase those numbers and the Giants are well aware of that.

The Giants should hold the upper hand in that battle as the Eagles are expected to be without their starting center and are expected to be playing their third string left tackle.  Pierre-Paul should be the impact player on Sunday night, and he certainly agrees with that testament.

“Oh man, that’s trouble, right? Third one? Man! That’s trouble,” Pierre Paul said.  “You know what they say about third string, right?”

Pierre Paul was referring to Eagles running back LeSean McCoy’s comments about Osi Umenyiora being a “ballerina in a Giant’s uniform.”  Last year, he tweeted that Umenyiora was “overrated” and a third-stringer

McCoy’s comments have seemed to motivate the Giants defensive line, which is bad news for the Eagles.  The Giants pass rushers have been relatively tame so far this season, but look for them to wake up against the Eagles, which is always a hard fought game.

Although the Giants have had the better overall results over the last few years, the Eagles have owned them of late.  Dating back to 2008, the Eagles have won seven of the last eight meetings with the Giants and the Giants only win in this span came in that Sept. game last year.

The key to that Giants victory was to do exactly what they should do this week:  hit Mike Vick.  They forced Vick to leave the game early and the Giants took advantage.  The Giants will need to do the exact same thing this Sunday if they want to come out with the victory in a crucial NFC East game.
