GIANTS' JASON PIERRE-PAUL NAMED NFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/01/giants.html)</p>

"Over the past month, DE Jason Pierre-Paul has established himself as one of
the NFL's elite defensive linemen, garnering the NFC Defensive Player of the
Week award twice and earning a spot in the Pro Bowl in the process. </p>


It only makes sense that he was named the NFC's Defensive Player of the Month
for December/January today. </p>


In the season’s final five games over the month-plus stretch, Pierre-Paul had
37 tackles (28 solo), including six sacks for 46 yards in losses. He twice had
two sacks in a game, both of which were followed with the weekly award. </p>


Yet, Pierre-Paul -- along with his coaches and teammates -- believes there's
still some untapped potential considering he's only in his second pro season and
began playing football his senior year of high school.</p>


“I knew that I was going to have a great year this year,” Pierre-Paul said.
“I came in and last year (as a rookie) I had an alright season and I wanted to
do better than what I did last year. Next year, or next season in 2012, I should
be better than this year.” </p>


It was in the Giants' 37-34 win over the Cowboys on Dec. 11 that Pierre-Paul
burst onto the national spotlight. The second-year defensive end led the Giants
with eight tackles, including two sacks of Tony Romo, the first of which
resulted in a safety. He also forced a fumble that led to a Giants field goal
and secured the victory by blocking Dan Bailey’s 47-yard field goal attempt with
one second left.</p>


He followed that up by registering a career-high 16 tackles and a sack
against Washington, and five tackles and two sacks against the Jets.</p>


Pierre-Paul finished the season with 16.5 sacks and became the only Giants
player in history other than Lawrence Taylor and Michael Strahan with at least
16 sacks in a season."</p>
