Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had one of the best rushing games of any quarterback in NFL history on Sunday. Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul says that if Griffin thinks he’s going to run well on the Giants this week, he should think again.
Specifically, JPP told RGIII that running toward Pierre-Paul’s side of the field would be a mistake.
“Don’t bring it to my side,” Pierre-Paul said. “Go the other way.”
Pierre-Paul says the Giants’ defense has the athleticism to keep Griffin in check.
“Trust me, we chase quarterbacks all 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. You’d be surprised. Very surprised.”
Griffin has already surprised a lot of defenses so far in his brief NFL career. We’ll see who’s surprised on Sunday.
