2. Which Jason Pierre-Paul Will We Get?

Lets face facts, Jason Pierre-Paul is either dominant or disappointing and there is nothing really in between. That’s because Pierre-Paul has a rare skill-set that should allow him to dominate on a regular basis off the edge but we don’t always see it. Playing under a franchise tag deal, will Pierre-Paul be motivated and perform to his peak level?

Pierre-Paul is coming off a 12.5 sack season which seems pretty amazing. But when you consider that 8.5 of those sacks came in the last five games of the season, you wonder why he can’t perform like that all the time. In 2013 Pierre-Paul got hurt and only had two sacks. But he played in 11 games so it’s still disappointing. The Giants value Pierre-Paul as a potential game changer after all he had 16.5 sacks in the 2011 season.

Pierre Paul wants to be valued like a top flight defensive end and in many ways he is. The problem is that when you seem to have an on and off switch, when you go from unstoppable to easily stoppable, how are the Giants supposed to pay you for only the good things? Pierre-Paul’s true capability is that 16.5 sack season, in fact it may even be higher. It wasn’t an aberration, it wasn’t a fluke, it was him playing consistently to his ability. Will the Giants get that from Pierre-Paul this season?
