“This game definitely means something special to me,” Pierre-Paul told reporters Friday, via the team’s official website.
“I finally get to play them this year, I’m fully healed and I’m ready to go,’ he said. “I’m trying to see what I can do. I already know what I’m going to do, but I want to see what I can do.”
“I’m happy to play Daniel Jones. Eli’s not there no more, so I won’t have to pick him up and say, ‘Eli, man, you good?’ I’m coming for their necks, man, they know that, and Jason Pierre-Paul ain’t going nowhere. I’m going to Monday Night Football and going to destroy the Giants. That’s what I want to do as an individual, but I still have love for them,” he said with a smile.
“You already know they made a mistake,” he said. “… It’s not that I’m trying to show them they made a mistake; it’s just the fact that I know that I wasn’t washed up or finished up. So, this [Monday], I have to show them, you know? It’s my old team, and we’ve got to show them the new Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”
