Super Bowl 2012: Why Jason Pierre-Paul Will Be a Difference Maker for the Giants

A player's first Super Bowl is always a revelation, not only for the player, but also for those watching.

It can ultimately reflect his status and ability by either reiterating his regular-season persona, or distinguishing that self from the one that does or doesn't show up on the big stage.

Jason Pierre-Paul was a sophomore at Fort Scott Community College in 2008 when the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 17-14, and probably could not fathom then that the trajectory of his career would place him on the roster of the current Super Bowl 2012 contending Giants.

Nevertheless, Pierre-Paul has arrived as a regular-season stalwart in his second year with the team, registering 16.5 sacks (the most since another decent defensive end named Michael Strahan led the team in 2003 with 18.5), and is primed to be one of the more impacting Giants in tomorrow's game.
