Where do you rank Nicks & Cruz as one of the best WR tandems in the NFL?

definitely top 5. still cant believe what weve gotten from cruz. guy is a STAR. so is nicks. barring injury, with eli and those two we are set up to have a sick passing offense for the next few seasons.

Add Manningham when healthy and top 5 in the NFL.

The Giants are one of two teams to have two wide receivers in top 15 in receiving yards, the other being the Packers. The Giants are also the only team to have two receivers in the top 10 in receiving yards per game. That seems arguably the best.

Similar to JPP. When people talked about his natural talent I figure he might have something, but wow were they right. A risk that finally paid off in the recent future.

I believe much of their success has to do with , dare I say it, the schemes by the OC & Eli making the adjustments to what the defense is showing. It worked together very nicely Sunday.....except we needed 1 more touchdown.

I really can't think of a better one.

Manningham is a good player, but it's nice to know that with these two we can make a good business decision if his agent tries to rake us over the coals next year.

Barring injury or inability to retain either one because of the cap, they will be the two best all-time Giants WRs. Remember, we've never had a WR even close to the HoF. That's just sad for an original NFL franchise.

I've been waiting all my life for the Giants to have a passing game that is feared.

I am the one who feels you need to give a 2-3 years to show that they are not a one year wonder.

We have seen that Nicks is for real. Need another year for Cruz, but I will say I believe he is, and I normally do not jump the gun. I can say the same for JPP.

Victor Cruz: 4/25/2010: Signed a three-year, $1.215 million contract. Seasons 2010-2012</P>


Hakeem Nicks: 8/1/2009: Signed a five-year, $12.54 million contract. Seasons 2009-2013</P>


Manningham is gone if we are keeping these guys. </P>

The unfortunate thing is that Nicks has been hurt pretty much since the day we got him. By looking at him play, I think he's playing quite hurt even now, and still draws double-coverage and still puts up numbers.

That guy's talent is off the charts, and Cruz will also only get better.

*</P>If Cruz shows he is legit next year, he will get paid. That deal works out nice for both Cruz and the team. Gives him a good amount considering he was an unknown, and gave the giants a trial period as well. Yet he will get paid by end of next year, so we shouldn't have contract issues.

Steve Smith who?
I would actually like Smith back. He had excellent chemistry with Eli and a 3rd down ball hogg. I prefer him over Mario, though I would still like Mario at #4 but I doubt we re-sign him, especially if Smith signs back on in 2012.

I see the logic, but I really think Cruz HAS proven he's legit.

I really don't know what the rules are, but I'm pretty sure he'd be an unrestricted FA if we didn't sign him at the end of next year. Reese should prioritize getting this guy on the hook for multiple seasons SOON.

I think Manningham will get good money elsewhere. He's good as gone.
