Pierre-Paul: Drew Brees is “much easier” matchup than RG3
 
In their last two games against the Giants, which came in 2009 and 2011, the Saints have put up 97 points on their way to two blowout victories.

Despite that, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul thinks this week’s date with New Orleans will go better than Monday night’s meeting with the Redskins. In particular, he thinks it will be “much easier” for the defense to face Drew Brees than it was to match up with Robert Griffin III in Washington’s 17-16 win.

Pierre-Paul cited the lack of the option in the New Orleans playbook as the biggest reason why things are so much easier and it generally makes sense that a defense would rather face a more traditional offense, even one that has put up the numbers the Saints have put up over the last few years. The Giants defense has had problems with offenses of all stripes this season, though, and Pierre-Paul called the defense “a little soft” while making the case that the team needs to make a statement.

I understand what he means, even though some may say he means RGIII is a better QB, but thats not how I read it.

If I'm a D-lineman I'd rather face Brees than RGIII too.

Without a doubt. A really good running QB is a ***** to defend. Film meetings after such a game is usually not a pleasent thing even if you win...

He will get a face full of The Kraken.

I'd rather face Brees than Ivory.

It might be easier for him as an individual defensive lineman to face Brees rather than RGIII, but how's that working out for the defense as a whole? I didn't see RGIII slapping a 90-burger on the Giants in his last two outings against them, eh?

Running QBs give defenses hell. However, I can't remember the last running QB called elite, hall of fame'r, top 3.

While Rodgers "can" run, he is not a running QB like RGIII, Vick, Tebow.....

He doesn't have to respect his containment responsibilities on passing plays and he can just pin his ears back and pass rush. That's what he means.

all of a sudden sinse the loss to the skins they have to make it a statement game against the saints. so if i'm hearing it right what u really mean is your going to put out this game because u were suppose to win that game against redskins on playing halfass. see this is what i meant to say. glad i cleared ur crap up.

Which is what a passrusher loves. A mobile quarterback in general are better att extending plays than a "regular" QB. But guys like Brees, Brady, Rodgers and the older Manning brother are not regular QBs but a tier above, they don't have to be mobile to pick you apart.
