Jason Pierre-Paul has put RG3 on notice. "Don't bring it to my side. Go the other way," Pierre-Paul warned. And as fast as Griffin is -- Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he was "probably the fastest guy on the field" last week when he busted a stunning 76-yard run against Minnesota -- Big Blue's defense has quickness of its own. "Trust me, we chase quarterbacks all the time. We turn and run to the guy no matter what," Pierre-Paul said. "He may ... zoom past us, but trust me, we're right behind him. You've got to respect that. It's not all about the speed. We've got all 11 guys who can run to the ball. You'd be surprised, very surprised. It's going to be a very good matchup," Pierre-Paul said. "Not on my side though, or on the other side. Not on my side." (New York Post) Comment
On Wednesday, Alex Rodriguez, who had always insisted he'd never accept a trade out of New York, was less resolute. [Rodriguez] did not offer the same inflexible position. Asked if he wanted to stay a Yankee, he did not say yes, but merely that, "I love this organization" and that his "focus" was on winning [Wednesday] night's game. Unlike the past, Rodriguez refused to eliminate all possibility of accepting a trade. But this will ultimately not be about if the Yankees want A-Rod gone (definitely, they want out of as much drama, salary and further fade as possible) or if Rodriguez wants to go (a friend suggested to me he would be more willing to exit than ever). It is about if another organization wants A-Rod's declining performance. (New York Post) Comment
Glen Taylor chose to take the long, optimistic view of a very unfortunate circumstance on Wednesday. "Certainly it's disappointing, but I always look at the positive part," Taylor said of [Kevin Love's] broken hand. "I'd rather have Kevin out there -- he's our star player. But if he's not going to be out there, it's an opportunity for a couple other guys. Derrick Williams, the No. 2 guy in the (2011) draft, said he got himself ready, so he's going to get a shot at it. Dante Cunningham didn't feel he was getting a chance on the team (Memphis) he was on and wanted to move, and we brought him here, so he'll get a chance. Let's see if one of those guys can step up."
