Good morning, New York Giants fans. Here is your Giants Morning Report for this Friday.
JPP: Good at football, not good at math
Jason Pierre-Paul has been on a dominant run lately with six sacks in the last three games, playing the best he has since his All-Pro 2011 season. "I am just playing football. I think I am doing a great job at it," Pierre-Paul said on Thursday.
Math, though? Apparently not a Pierre-Paul strength. Remember earlier this season when Pierre-Paul said the Philadelphia Eagles, 4-1 at the time, could have been 0-4? Thursday, he added another mathematical miscalculation.
"I have one job and that is playing the run and getting to the quarterback," Pierre-Paul said.
That, of course, is two jobs. So maybe JPP's math isn't perfect. Maybe he's just the Giants version of Yogi Berra, where when he talks he sometimes says goofy things. The math that will add up for Pierre-Paul at season's end is that the free-agent-to-be is headed for a massive contract, from the Giants or elsewhere.
