07:21 AM ET 10.25 | Back in 2011, a superhero version of Jason Pierre-Paul patrolled the field for Big Blue, and he may return to form in 2014. But the Giants' most fearsome defensive end won't need it anytime soon, because this season, he's not going to be that same dominant player. And anyone who expected him to be Superman at any point in 2013 was just being "ridiculous." "I know for a fact that I'm not at 100%," Pierre-Paul said Thursday. "I know for a fact it's going to take a whole offseason to get my strength back in my back. "To be honest, I wasn't expecting to be Superman (this season)," he added. "I'm pretty sure the coaches wasn't expecting me to be Superman, either." ... This is a lost season for the Giants, and now, the team's most disruptive defensive presence has admitted that it's a lost year for him, too.

A gripping, gutsy prediction.

Ahh, time for everyone to justify their crappy performance this year

So what do you think hurts Giants fans the worst? Having to live through a lousy season, or watching the Jets suddenly look like contenders?

Maybe the whole team is suffering from low testosterone.

I don't think most Giants fans hate the Jets; I know I don't. They've been a laughing stock recently because of bad management decisions, but I don't think NY fans take pleasure in that - I think most people were cringing at the things going on with the Jets.

I think Rex hired a voodoo woman to switch fate with the Giants this year.

TC should have rode off into the sunset after the G-Men won their last SB title.
