JPP: 'Much easier' to defend Saints than Redskins

New, comments

The New Orleans Saints scored 49 points the last time they played the New York Giants. Jason Pierre-Paul says, however, that the Saints' offense is "much easier" to play against than the Redskins.

Really, JPP? Did you really have to go and say that playing the New Orleans Saints -- who dropped 49 points and 577 yards of offense on the New York Giants a season ago -- would be "easier" than playing Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins?

"The Redskins have a great scheme going on, especially with the quarterback they have. Just playing that option, it’s crazy. I think they’re probably one of the best teams that have played it, played it well. It’s a pain in (butt). I hate playing it," Pierre-Paul said on Wednesday. "Now going up against a traditional offense, we know what we’re probably going to get. It’s much easier."

"Will it help us in that it's a style that we would be more inclined to defend or try to defend? But on the other hand they ran the ball on us last time too. So we're not just going to have to defend the pass," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "We might be familiar with it, but it still doesn't make it any easier to defend, I guess, is what I'm trying to say."

Pierre-Paul has 6.5 sacks this season -- none in his last three games. The Giants could use a better effort than that on Sunday.
