  • Pay Cruz/Don't Pay Cruz

    This may have been posted already as it is a few days old and I know it's being discussed... but, if you haven't seen it, then please read:
    http://bleacherreport.com/tb/bfNnA?u...ew-york-giants

    I think we represent a fair fan base. I want the Giants to see our opinion on the question:
    Should the Giants rip up Cruz' $540,000 contract for this year and pay him more in line with, and in appreciation for his 2011 contributions to our success?
    I think he earned a raise and I don't want to take a chance of losing him, so I say
    YES

    Cruz definitely deserves a raise....but it wouldn't be a smart move to give any kind of a big deal after 1 year..

      How would they be risking losing him if they didnt resign him right now?

      He is under contract this year, will be an RFA next year.

      They can keep him under contract for this and next year for a combined 1.5 million.

      Why would they give him a big contract now instead? Makes absolutely no sense for the giants unless they get him for a bargain price.

        If he shows that hes the same guy we saw last season I think we'll bless him with a nice long contract. If our WRs show us love on the field, we show them love off the field. We need to find a way to ink Nicks as well as Cruz as long as Cruz shows us he's that monster we saw last season

            Cruz is being a class act.....he's also a fan favorite and probably earning a lot of cake through endorsements, personal appearances, etc.

            I think the Front Office will do right by the kid down the road.

                He knows he is going to get paid. He has even said he isn't going to holdout. He knows the cap situation and even if they wanted to, they can't afford to pay him right now. Everything will be better in a year though as a lot of guys will be coming off the books. These next two drafts will shape the next 5 years.

                  General speaking, the earlier you extend a Guy the cheaper you'll get him for. Examples are tuck; and big Ben when compared to us waiting to extend Eli.

                  And to a lesser extent it builds more trust (for lack of
                  a better word) between the fo and the locker room. Guys see the fo pay a Guy for doing well and they'll think it will apply to them as well when they succeed.

                    Or Osi, who has been complaining that he is underpaid the past 4 seasons.

                    It works both ways.

                      Right, but he was alsostill in a giants uniform those 4 years making plays (when healthy), which is really what matters.

                          This guy could be the best Giants receiver of all time baring Injury! Letting this guy walk could be considered criminal!
                          Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

                            Except of course, that Nicks is an even better receiver.

                              You pay Cruz because if you don't

                              He could hold out. Him saying he won't means nothing.

                              Its bad for team morale. Guy performs like an upper-echelon reciever and gets paid like a punter. Other players start thinking the team doesn't care about the players making it harder to sign other guys.

                              If he doubles up his performance from last season without a new contract he becomes unaffordable.

                              You don't have to give him a huge payday but you have to give him a relatively short contract that makes him a millionaire. That simple.
