"He has been as good as there has been in the league," Nunn says of JPP’s run defense. "When he is healthy, he is as good of a run player that I have been around."
Nunn is convinced that the sack numbers will come for Pierre-Paul, too, if only because JPP is a better pass-rusher than he was a few years ago. Pierre-Paul has long admitted that that 2011 magic was all raw talent, but now, after two years of injuries, he gets the nuance of attacking the QB. That’s why he brought Tony Romo down twice in Dallas, getting the best of Smith.
"I think he has a better (pass rush) plan than he has ever had," Nunn said. "He is doing a good job of attacking offensive tackles."
As it’s turned out, Eli’s all right.
Do you recall the hysteria this summer and at the start of the regular season regarding Eli Manning and Ben McAdoo’s West Coast offense?
The conventional belief was the Giants quarterback was about as good a fit with their new offensive coordinator’s system as head coach Tom Coughlin at a toga party.
Well, forget about all that.
