Pierre-Paul predicts win over the Packers

Ok, let’s start the week with some bulletin board material – this coming straight out of the mouth of Jason Pierre-Paul …

“We are very confident,” Pierre-Paul said after the Giants killed the Falcons 24-2 in Sunday’s NFC wild-card game.

“Last time [the Packers] came in here and they beat us (38-35 on Dec. 4), which they shouldn’t have. It’s going to be cold and the atmosphere will be theirs, but we’re going to be ready to play. We know what’s at stake, and we know it’s one–and-done. We aren’t going to let that happen. We are going to go out there and give [an] all out effort, and we are going to walk away with a win.”

Though the Packers shouldn’t need motivation, this is the Playoffs after all. But should they be looking for something to hang their motivational hat on … there it is – handed directly to them by Pierre-Paul.

Don’t get me wrong – the Giants are a dangerous team that’s peaking much like the Packers did last year on their run to a Super Bowl championship. They have a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, they’ve got a defensive line that is pummeling the opposition, their receivers are dynamic, their running backs punishing.

But you don’t have to tell the Packers who they will be facing come Sunday. Every team in this tournament is good. They all have their reasons why they have advanced to this stage – the eight best teams in the league.

However, one of the differences we will see won’t be on the field. It will be in the professionalism of the players. The Packers don’t need a mouthpiece like Pierre-Paul to come out and say something stupid. They need to take their fight to the field. The Giants are going to come out with what they want to be a lethal punch. The Packers simply only have to counter those punches with winning attitudes and abilities.

That’s the true mark of a champion.

    Well for one thing, every player playing the playoffs should be confident that they can beat the opponent, especially when asked by the sports press. This is no easy chore beating the Packers—but hay we have a puncher’s chance, because the G-men have the best pass rush in the playoffs right now. And when you’re a team with a bone crushing pass rush, you best believe that one of those pass rushers on that team gonna be confident. JPP? If you don’t know him, PACKERS’ fans—you better ask somebody.

    After this game is over, expect your QB (Aaron Rogers) to get punched in the mouth a few times, all the while, blindly looking for his missing teeth on the ground with his two, damaged, black eyes. New York is coming with the best pass rush in NFL and set on revenge. WE CAN”T WAIT!!

    @Antinysn Oh, we know all about the G-Men and the pass rush and what they can do. Of course, having Osi back is going to be a huge challenge for the Packers. However, also remember that the last time the Packers played the Giants Dec. 4 the Packers were playing with an offensive line put together with twine and baling wire … Finally the O-Line is back to where they were at the beginning of the season, so we’re hoping that will be enough to keep the dogs off Rodgers for most of the game. Another thing to think about on your side is that if the Packers defense even has a modicum of improvement and able to stop the Giants on a couple of drives, keep them out of the end zone and come up with one or two turnovers, it could be a long day for New York because the Packers are going to score more than 2 points … Matt whatshisname from Atlanta is no Aaron Rodgers … needless to say, WE CAN’T WAIT EITHER! Either way, it’s going to be a heck of a game … much better than all the hype everyone is giving Tebow and Brady (Yawn).
