EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Football has not been any fun for Jason Pierre-Paul this season.
Pierre-Paul has gone from All-Pro to all frowns. The sacks aren't coming: Pierre-Paul has just 1 1/2 in four games in 2012 after getting 16 1/2 a year ago and terrorizing opposing passers down the stretch and into the postseason as the Giants won the Super Bowl.
He says he looks in the mirror and asks himself why he isn't ``running around like a big kid,'' but promises he will be doing that on Sunday against Cleveland.
Fellow defensive end Justin Tuck agrees with Pierre-Paul's assessment, but can't pinpoint the reason things haven't been as enjoyable. He doesn't think it's the high expectations accompanying the Giants' defensive line because `'expectations have always been high around here.''
