So, apparently, New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul doesn't believe Tom Brady is God, as he announced a day ago. But now, a day later, he believes that New York's pass rush is in the reigning MVP's head.
During an interview with the media, New York's All-Pro defensive end suggested that he, along with the rest of New York's pass rush, is in Brady's head considering how they played back in Week 9 in their 24-20 win over the Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
If you look at Week 9 when we played them, it’s like he felt us. We went back on the film, we watched the film and we didn’t really rush as we can as a defense. He was throwing balls on the ground and stuff.
Back in the Week 9 matchup, Brady was sacked twice and he finished with a 75.4 quarterback rating. He threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted twice.
J.P.P. went onto say that Brady was feeling some "phantom pressure" that resulted in inaccurate passes from No. 12.
Yeah, he was reacting to pressure that didn’t exist and he was just throwing the ball places that there wasn’t a receiver there. So imagine us just getting there even faster and we’re actually doing out jobs and getting there and getting hits on him.
We'll just have to wait and see if Brady is going to react to any "phantom pressure" in Super Bowl XLVI.
There is one thing that I am sure of, though it's just my opinion: The more J.P.P. talks and the more the entire Giants roster talks, the more it's going to upset Brady to the extent that no team is going to be in his way. Brady will be on a mission to not only to win his fourth Super Bowl and 17th postseason game, but he'll be on a mission to shut up the entire New York defense that's been running their mouth all week long.
