New York Giants work to clarify what Pierre-Paul said about Drew Brees
 
A day after New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said it'll be "easier" to face New Orleans Saints record-setting quarterback Drew Brees than it was going up against Washington dual-threat rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, Giants Coach Tom Coughlin rushed to clarify what Pierre-Paul may have meant.

"He's not in any way inferring that it's not a difficult task (playing against Brees)," Coughlin said. "I think what he's referring to is the number of assignments and particulars/specifics that the previous offense forced for all the defensive front, linebackers and safeties in terms of assignment football, point-blank. I think he's referring to that. Just the difference in styles; not in any way, that Drew Brees isn't an excellent player, because he wouldn't do that."

Saints interim coach Joe Vitt, too, said he understood what Pierre-Paul was saying.

"I've gone through this explanation before it's like you are preparing for six eligible receivers, you are preparing for three running backs on the field at the same time when you are playing an offense like that," Vitt said. "Those quarterbacks like that can extend a down and extend the field. You just don't think make one-on-one tackles against athletes like that. You've got to get population to the ball.

"So I can understand what he is saying with that. Now he is playing a real NFL offense, as opposed to this new type of offense that is coming in now and has really given people some challenges."

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, though, said on Thursday there is nothing easy about playing against Brees, who has thrown an NFL high 31 touchdown passes this season and who scorched the Giants for 363 yards and four touchdowns last season.

"I would never say there's anything easy about playing against (Brees)," Umenyiora said. "He's one of the best quarterbacks in this league and we definitely have our work cut out for us, for sure."

If Drew can throw to the Saints receivers as opposed to the defending players the Giants will lose.

Our defense said the EXACT same thing after losing to the red skins and panthers. They said they were half to be going against Matt Castle. But I'm not going into the rest if the story. The rest they say is history. :(
