New York Giants’ Peyton Hills, Jason Pierre-Paul ruled out for Week 16


The New York Giants will fail to make the playoffs yet again after a season full of disappointments on both sides of the ball.

Jason Pierre-Paul on the other hand, has been one of their best defenders this season as he’s recorded 27 combined tackles with two sacks and one interception that went for a touchdown. Pierre-Paul has been dealing with a shoulder injury and has been ruled out for the Giants.

He could be shut down for the remainder of the year.

Another guy ruled out for the Giants on Sunday is running back Peyton Hillis. Hillis pretty much left his glory days behind him in Cleveland after rushing for almost 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns that year. Since then, he’s only rushed for a little over 1,000 yards over three years and about half of the touchdown total for 2010.

Hillis has 191 rushing yards on 56 carries with two touchdowns this year for the New York Giants. No indication if he’ll return to the team next year, but it could be a possibility.

Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan was listed as questionable with a knee injury and could be a game time decision.

    Why doesn’t Coughlin get it? His players are dropping like flies… Cruz out, so get Jernigan in there… oh, wait, he’s hurt. That’s ok, Nicks will play… oh… he won’t. Well, he will, but he won’t risk injury fighting for balls (as he showed last week against Seattle when he barely gave a darn when Eli threw 4 picks his way) when he’s a FA soon with no payday… unlike Cruz. So he should risk his $7M APY payday to do what… make Coughlin happy about “respectability”? Er… that would be no. So Coughlin wants Eli out there for “respectability” when all these players pop up as hurt, not playing, not risking injury, etc., behind a makeshift line that can’t even hope to slow down Suh and Fairley on Sunday. Eli will be lucky to get out of there with all his parts intact. Coughlin’s just insane, gambling with the franchise QB’s health in meaningless games… oh… not so… not meaningless to Suh and Fairley! They’re playing for the playoffs, and they would pile drive Eli into the dirt if it meant they’d be more likely to win this game. Hey Coughlin… put your thinking cap on for a minute… your injured list is getting as long as your active roster. Get Nassib in there. If he gets crushed by Suh, then the impact on the Giants’ 2014 Super Bowl run is.. what? Nadda. That’s what. And what if… what if Nassib shows you something?! What, he’s only a 4th rounder, and those QBs can’t play. Really? Brady was a 6th rounder. Romo was undrafted. You don’t know what Nassib can do. But you need to, and when better to take a look than during meaningless games? Don’t be a fool Tom.
