DE Jason Pierre-Paul on facing the 49ers offense

Q: Talk about going back to San Francisco and the fact that they’re motivated to show that what happened last year shouldn’t have happened.

A: They’re motivated to beat us. I know they’ve got a chip on their shoulders. After all, we did beat them in the conference championship game and we’re going to go back there and they’re going to give us their all and we’re going to be ready for it and this is going to be a fight. This is going to be probably the toughest team we played this year, but it’s going to be a good game.

Q: You have a couple of ex-teammates in their room. How many secrets do you think they’re trying to sell in the meeting rooms?
A: I’m pretty sure when you leave a team, especially if you’ve been there for a while, that you’re going to tell the other team what you know. So we’ll be ready for that and it’s nothing that we can’t handle.

Q: What’s it like playing in that place? What’s the whole experience like?
A: I know everything is going to be fast and it’s going to be very fast and we’ve all got to stick together and all three phases have got to come together. We’ve got to play hard. It’s probably going to be one of the toughest games we play this year and we’re going to give all we’ve got. That’s all we can do.

Q: Your coach said earlier that nobody gives you guys a chance to win. Do you guys really believe that?
A: I don’t know. All I know, as players and being on the Giants, we’re going to go out there and fight, give all we’ve got. We don’t care what anybody says about us, anyway. We’re just going to go out there and play great football.

Q: What’s it like playing that offense? They have so many tools, so many weapons.
A: So much. They’ve got so many weapons and they’ve got different fronts, formations and personnel. You just don’t know what you’re going to get with that kind of team and then every position is talented. So you’ve got to respect them, but we’re going to go out there and it’s going to be a dogfight and we’re ready to go out there and fight.

Q: Is there a chip on your shoulder because of the fact that a lot of people are saying that they’re the best team in the NFC?
A: It is what it is. People have their own opinions. You only can prove that with your pads and at the end of the year, who is in the playoffs and going to the championship game. So that’s the way you prove it and we don’t care what anybody says. That’s how our organization works and that’s how we play football.
