January 4, 2016

Q: How would you describe this season, which is has obviously been a difficult one for you, but when you look at the football team, how do you describe it?

A: Disappointed. You want to make the playoffs but we didnít this year unfortunately and that was basically it.

Q: What are your thoughts on Coach [Tom] Coughlin?

A: Heís a great coach, heís determined, motivator, father figure and consistent at everything he does since the day that I got here. Those guys told me about him and I learned and actually got to experience Coach Coughlin for who he is.

Q: Do you believe a change is needed?

A: I donít think so. At the end of the day itís all about players and we didnít do a great job this year. We didnít give the extra effort and we didnít finish those close games that we had. You go back and see those close games that we needed to be in the playoffs but we didnít finish it off. We played the best of the best and like I said those close games really count.

Q: Do you think youíll be back here next year?

A: Who knows? I donít know where Iím going to be. Hopefully I am [here] but wherever I am at Iíll be ready to go in full effect.

Q: As far as your offseason, will you need more surgery on your hand?

A: I have one more surgery, I donít know when Iím going to do it, but Iím going to do it as soon as possible. Iím pretty sure youíll hear about it. Thatís basically it for me as far as rehab.

Q: What will you tell your agent as in terms of getting the business done in terms of a time frame? Do you want to have this done sooner than later? Do you really want to test true free agency? How will you like to handle it?

A: Iím not getting into all that right now. All I can say is that theyíre going to handle that on the business side.

Q: Did Coach [Coughlin] give any indication on his future?

A: Not really.

Q: Did he [Coughlin] talk to you guys since yesterday, what did he say?

A: As a group, we just had a team meeting. He talked to us as a group, thanked us for everything saying we were great players, the effort was there, but we just didnít get the job done. As any coach you want to make the postseason but we didnít unfortunately and itís a disappointment. Itís been four years in a row now.

Q: Was he [Coughlin] emotional at all when he talked to you guys?

A: No, Coach Coughlin is always Coach Coughlin. Heís going to be straight blunt with it, heís not going to sugarcoat anything, heís going to keep it original and thatís what he did.
This guy needs to go

Not a team leader, screwed the Gmen big time this year and probably cost the coach his job. Good luck stumpy

What is wrong with you, asshole?
I'll say this for JPP

When he came back after missing all those game he did a much better job that I ever thought he would be able to do with that stump.

I hope Mara stays true to his convictions that changing coaches is not the answer especially with the way things went down this year with all the key injuries yet being so close to beating great teams in key games.

You could almost pin it all on that bad call in the first Dallas game.
Fuck JPP

and his stub ass hand.

He's an immature, me - first, lazy and undisciplined player.

I told you all this over a year ago but instead was called every name in the book.

I told you AGAIN when he went A-Team on his hand over the summer.

How can people support re-signing him I have no idea.

Go get your 3.5 sacks a year on the Redskins Sir Stubs a Lot.
Some real...

POS posting on this thread. Let's keep it going.
It will be interesting to see what kind of offer Giants make

JPP is sure to be better next year than this but how much better? How close to his old self can he get? How many years? Going long term with a guy who may not be the greatest self motivator is not ideal. Obviously hope we don't overpay but with 32 teams there is always someone who will. What do you call "overpay" if there is nobody cheaper who can do as good a job? And when playing without the club he is the only potential pass rush threat on the team. Cost of the non-exclusive franchise tag would be ~ $11 million I think.

Looking forward to seeing how Giants handle it.
Love the JPP

Hope we keep him :)
How am I a POS?

If I say that JPP put himself before the team over and over and over again and he isn't someone I want on my team. You can't win with guys like that.

He might have worn the uniform but he isn't a Giant.



Interesting that 2 of TC's biggest supporters

Coughlinrules and Limerick make these kinds of statements about JPP. Very telling.
JPP screwed team and fans
