Jason Pierre-Paul has seen the speed of Robert Griffin III and he knows the Redskins quarterback will try to run on the Giants’ defense on Sunday. But JPP has a warning for RGIII.
“Don’t bring it to my side,” Pierre-Paul said. “Go the other way.”
Not that Pierre-Paul expects Griffin to have much success going in the other direction either, now that the Giants’ defense has rediscovered its confidence after its dominant performance in San Francisco last Sunday. Griffin, who has run for 379 yards and six touchdowns his first six games in the league, may be the NFL’s fastest quarterback.
But Pierre-Paul thinks RGIII will have his hands full against a Giants’ defense that might be faster than any he’s ever seen.
“Trust me, we chase quarterbacks all the time,” Pierre-Paul said. “We turn and run to the ball, no matter what. He may get past us and zoom right past us, but trust me we’re right behind him. You’ve got to respect that, too. It’s not all about the speed. We’ve got guys, all 11 guys that can run to the ball very quick.
