The New York Giants finally picked up their first victory of the season on Monday against the Minnesota Vikings.
But this season has been a huge disappointment to not only the organization but it’s fans. This team has already lost several players for the rest of the season.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul underwent back surgery during the off-season and was able to return to the New York Giants this season. But is he 100 percent? Right now the question according to Pierre-Paul is, no.
According to Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter, Jason Pierre-Paul says that it will take the whole off-season next year to get him back to his old self.
Pierre-Paul had a break out season with the Giants back in 2011 where he recorded 86 combined tackles with 16.5 sacks. That’s a season off his rookie year where he only recorded 30 combined tackles and 4.5 sacks.
If I can remember correctly, he even blocked a game winning field goal against the Dallas Cowboys to help give the Giants a victory.
Anyways, this team is already hurting and can’t afford to lose anybody else for the rest of the year. I doubt he sits out for the rest of the year, but knowing he isn’t 100 percent has to be bothering this training staff, even this franchise.
Said Pierre-Paul: “It’s really going to take the whole offseason next year to get back to my old, old ways — the old JPP.” #NYG
