    MARIO MANNINGHAM BELIEVES HE'S A # 1 RECEIVER

    "Mario Manningham believes he is a No. 1 receiver, believes he should get paid
    like a No. 1 receiver, and believes there’s an NFL team out there that agrees
    with him. If he’s correct, then he’s unquestionably played his last game for the
    Giants.



    Manningham will become an unrestricted free agent on March 13 because there
    is no possibility he and the Giants will come to an agreement before the signing
    period begins.

    Manningham was supplanted by Victor Cruz and, along with Hakeem Nicks, formed
    a formidable three-pronged receiver attack as the Giants won the Super Bowl. The
    talented trio allowed quarterback Eli Manning the luxury of picking out the
    inevitable mismatch to exploit.





    Such luxuries are almost impossible to maintain within a salary-cap structure
    and, after his breakthrough performance in the playoffs followed by a
    sensational closing act down the stretch of Super Bowl XLVI, Manningham has most
    likely priced himself out of the Giants’ range.




    “I want to be here,” he said this week at the premiere screening of the
    official Super Bowl DVD. “I feel like we can do a lot of damage in these next
    four, five years. That’s just how I feel, because we’re all young. It’s not up
    to me, I want to stay. It’s a business, too, you got to look at it like that,
    too. You got to look out for your family, that’s how it is.”




    The Giants could have ensured they retained Manningham’s services for 2012 by
    designating him as their franchise player but that would have cost them upwards
    of $9 million next season. Instead, the Giants put the franchise tag on punter
    Steve Weatherford and Manningham will hit the open market. He knows how
    effective the offense operated with three top receivers but paying them all is
    not possible, not with Cruz in line for a big raise — he is scheduled to make
    $490,000 this season — and Nicks’ deal up after the 2013 season.




    “I feel like a lot of times where they could have took Hakeem and Victor out
    I could have made plays, or they could have took me and Victor out and Hakeem
    could have made plays,’’ Manningham said. “I feel like any of us can make a play
    at any time. You need a lot of good receivers these days.”




    The Giants will no doubt be looking for another one after Manningham leaves
    and a familiar face will be available. Plaxico Burress last year spurned the
    Giants’ offer to return but as he hits free agency is listing the Giants, Jets,
    Eagles and Steelers as the teams he’s most interested in playing for. He has
    made no secret the Eagles are his first choice.




    As for a reunion with the Giants, Burress, speaking yesterday on SiriusXM NFL
    Radio, said, “It’s always a great possibility. Playing in Kevin Gilbride’s
    system is definitely one of the best. You just look at some of the plays those
    guys are making out on the edge and Eli has really just become a man at his
    position, leading those guys the last few games of the season and obviously
    winning a Super Bowl. Being in that offense, it’s definitely a great
    offense.’’




    In need of a new employer, Burress has certainly changed his tune regarding
    Tom Coughlin, calling him “definitely a great coach.’’




    In his one season with the Jets, Burress started slowly, but finished with 48
    receptions for 612 yards and eight touchdowns, showing he still can be a
    red-zone threat. Although he won’t return to the team, he called the Jets “a
    championship-caliber football team. I believe they will win a Super Bowl one
    day.’’

      What makes him think he should be paid like a #1? I don't mind the confidence in himself to believe he is a #1 caliber receiver, but he has not put up the numbers to warrant that type of payday.

      well whatever, hope he does good wherever he may end up .

      Don't care about the Plaxico stuff lol

          I am not going to berate Mario because I don't think he deserves it...I think he has been an exemplary member of this team and has maintained a professional attitude during his time here even when times we tough. I like him!




          However, unfortunately, I don't believe he is going to get #1 money...He is deserving of a solid receiver's money, say $4.5 - $5.5 mil/year and I think the bulk of that will be in the back end of the contract with a modest signing bonus or at least incentive laden....I wish we had cap space and maybe he gives us the hometown discount at $3.5-4mil and we could give him a better signing bonus.




          I do believe if Mario stayed and remained healthy we would have the best receiving corp in the league. Dallas may have a better trio if they retain Robinson. We have no one proven behind Mario.




          Giants fans, lets not beat up on Mario if he wants better for himself....unless he goes to another NFC East team, then he is just asking for it! We NY'ers are always there to ablige!

            Not going to bash Mario just mention a few facts.




            #1 Recievers get it done all the time, he has not shown when Nicks was not on the field he could be the man in double coverage, made all his highlights with Nicks and Cruz drawing all the attention.




            #2 If he wants to be considered a #1 he has to play 16 regular season games, not 10 - 12 which he has done consistently since he got to the Giants.




            #3 Enjoy the chance to have an Elite QB get you the ball even when you think you're covered, play with Eli is why he was able to make that catch in the Super Bowl, not to many other QB's woudl have even attemped to drop that in there.




            If some other team is willing to pay him the crazy money he has to go, but if he is just getting similar money the Giants will offer he'd be a fool not to stay.




            Good Luck either way, you always have the last catch you made in the Superbowl to remember.

                those are his stat lines in games that Nicks has missed.

                If u take those averages for a season he finishes around 70 receptions, 1200 yards, and 9 tds. So he has def produced when Nicks went down.

                #2 - Plenty of #1s dont consistantly play a full 16, Nicks being one. But your right, im sure his injury history will limit him somewhat.

                #3- The throw was definitly the story, but he still made the play. HE also came up big for the TD vs San Fran. Bottom line is that he showed that his nerves didn't get to him in the big show

                  It is difficult to show 'tone of voice' in a post so let me first say, thank you Mario for all you have done for my Giants.

                  Now, honestly, Mario is not even close to the sharpest tool in the shed. It's going to take him ages, maybe even a year to learn another team's playbook. Add that to the bobbles and injuries and he should not command #1 receiver money. I wish him the best and if some team is willing to grant him that contract, so be it. If they do, they will regret it because the health, intelligence, and the drops, will not fit the contract $$.

                  Good luck Mario, thank you for your time as a Giant.

                          and there isnt many guys who have as many TDs and 40+ yard plays as Mario has the past 3 years. theres a difference between being capable and actually doing it

                              mmb-the issue with MM is not that he isn't capable, its that he isn't consistent.

                              he has stretches of the season where he virtually disappears. even this past season, he went like a month of making no impact on the games...

                              thats the only thing i believe doesnt make him a true #1 wr. he has too many games of 1 or 0 catches and no impact.

                              he def. has the ability, but even in the SB, it took him until the 4th quarter to make his mark, and that was when NE was completely selling out on nicks and cruz...

                              edit- even in the SF NFCCG, he had i belive just that 1 td catch. and that was way more of a big play by eli. it was 3rd and forever and we needed a td, eli even said that before the game he and peyton discussed a certain look SF d gave and what he could do if they gave him that look. sure enough they did, and eli delivered an absolutely perfect pass, just like the SB. each one of MM's catches in the SB were perfectly thrown balls.
                              on the couple of plays where MM needed to step up before that 4th period, MM didn't come thru. on that 3rd and 10 after the phantom holding call, eli put that pass exactly where it needed to be to give MM a chance at it and he failed. on a couple of comeback routes eli put the ball exactly where it needed to be and MM didn't run crisp enough route or shield the ball from the defender. on the one sideline go route before that awesome catch, MM didn't give himself enough room to pull the catch in.

                              he's too inconsistent on his route running and ability to make the play
