The New York Giants’ defense had a hard time with Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III this past Monday night. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is happy that they’ll be playing a typical offense then they play the Saints on Sunday.
“The Redskins got a great scheme going on there, especially with their quarterback they got, and just playing that option, man, is crazy,” Pierre-Paul said, per The Newark Star-Ledger. “I think we’re one of the best teams that have played it, played it well, but it’s a pain in the (butt). I hate playing it. So now going up (against) a traditional offense, we know what we’re going to probably get, and it’s much easier.”
Pierre-Paul seems happy that the Giants won’t have to worry about the option this week.
“We already know what he’s capable of, and his targets and stuff, so we’ll go out there and play some great football,” Pierre-Paul said of Brees. “And we ain’t gotta worry about the option.”
JPP says the Giants defense has played soft.

After the New York Giants 17-16 defeat to the Washington Redskins Giants safety Antrel Rolle told WFAN that he and his teammates need to get "nasty" and show the "dog" inside them.

When he enters the cold tub now at New York Giants headquarters, Prince Amukamara does so voluntarily.
Amukamara's reputation took a bath this summer when a video of the second-year cornerback being roughly dumped in the icy water by Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was posted by another teammate (punter Steve Weatherford) on the Internet.
As he was being carried toward...
Coming into the season, there weren’t many teams in the NFC that you could rule out of the playoffs. Rookie quarterbacks in Washington and Seattle? They’re in the think of things. The Saints with Drew Brees, coming off of a 5,000 yard passing season? Well, they’re out of it. Who would’ve guessed it. It’s time to look into the NFC playoff picture as we wind down to the...
The Saints will travel to New York to face the Giants on Sunday it what will pin the defending world champions against the 2009 champs.

The New Orleans Saints know they are long shots to make the playoffs even if they beat the New York Giants on Sunday.
Still, they haven't given up - taking inspiration from the Giants, who made a postseason run from a position similar to one in which the Saints find themselves now.

New Orleans Saints (5-7) at New York Giants (7-5)
Earlier this week, I outlined why the Redskins should be considered the favorites to win the NFC East. The Redskins, presumably, have the tiebreaker, by virtue of their better divisional record. They are a game back right now, but they are almost definitely going favored in each of their last four games, while the Giants will be favored...
The New York Giants think they need to run the table in their final four regular-season games to win the NFC East.
The New Orleans Saints feel the same way about reaching the playoffs, and are drawing inspiration from the reigning Super Bowl champions.
