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. One reason for the Giants lack of a pass rush is that Jason Pierre-Paul is not performing as well as he could be. He had ack surgery this offseason and he may still be recovering. Jason Pierre-Paul is missing his explosiveness that made him a nightmare for offensive linemen. He has played most of the defensive snaps through the first two games. Jason Pierre-Paul is the difference maker for the defense. He blocked a field goal against Dallas in 2011 that allowed the Giants to win the game. He has the talent be a game changer all by himself. The Giants have to fins a way to get his explosiveness back. If the Giants hope to get Jason Pierre-Paul back to his top level of play, they need to try some new things with him, He has been playing most of the snaps so far this season. One thing the Giants can do is give him less snaps. By limiting his snaps they might be able to keep him fresher throughout the game. They should also try lining him up as a defensive tackle on some snaps, see if that helps him break through the offensive line. The Giants need to try whatever they can to make Jason Pierre-Paul more of a factor on defense. The other defensive linemen have been playing well so far, but when the opponents are focused on stopping Jason Pierre-Paul the other defensive linemen have more success. Jason Pierre-Paul is the key to getting the Giants pass rush back on track. Hopefully the Giants can solve this before their week three match against the Panthers.
