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." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Giants respect Spagnuolo defense, despite ranking

The New York Giants know better than to underestimate a Steve Spagnuolo defense, even one that currently ranks at the bottom of the NFL.

Giants guard Kevin Boothe says the thing he remembers...

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,...

New Orleans Saints at New York Giants: Week 14 NFL Pick

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.

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...
