I asked Jason Pierre-Paul a few questions today on a number of topics, but he was having none of it.

“I’m worried about winning the game,” he said after just about every question. “That’s it. That’s all I’m worried about. I don’t care how we do it, just do it.”

The Giants’ defensive ends were shut out in the sack department against the Cowboys, but Pierre-Paul said he was not concerned with that statistic.

“We ain’t worried about that,” he said. “We’re just trying to win the game. It doesn’t matter the sacks. We’re just trying to win the game when it comes down to it.”

Don’t sacks help a team win the game?

“Not really.”

Well, quarterback pressures then?

“Not that either.”

So what ‘s the key to winning the game?

“Just win the game,” he said. “Just win the game. I don’t care how you do it, just win the game. Everybody has to play together, that’s basically it. Playing as a team, that’s what makes you win games.”
