It's one thing to be a little critical of yourself, but another to throw your entire team under the bus in doing so.
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul said of his team - "I think we're a little soft, but I think we'll get there," he said Wednesday, via The Associated Press. "We haven't played our best game this year. I know that for a fact."
This comes in the wake of losing to the Washington Redskins, putting them on the verge of missing the playoffs if they can't hold onto their slim 1-game divisional lead over the the 'Skins and Cowboys.
"As a defense, we have to make a statement," Pierre-Paul said. "We haven't made a statement ever since, I'll say, San Francisco (in a Week 6 victory). Well, I'm lying, because we did beat up on Green Bay quite a little bit (in Week 12). But, ever since then, we haven't made a statement. We've just been losing. And we're all not playing together.
"When you're a team, on an organization like this, you've got to play together as one. Otherwise, you'll keep going downhill."
