    Cruz showing leadership this year is the next evolution of his development. Lets see if the rookie steps up to the challenge.

      Yeah, Cruz is making LESS THAN 500k this year. Is that crazy, or what?

      Reese and co. better give him his payday next season or they are bums. I understand this is a business, though. However, Cruz is too valuable and needs to be locked up with a 6 year 15 mil contract at least

            Don't know if any of you read down farther......some people posted to the article saying that Nicks status would be announced today, and that it appears to be a meniscus tear. They also mentioned that depending on serverity he could A) Play through it as MM did, B) Get "quick" procedure to clean it up and be out 2-4 weeks, or if worse case scenarion, get season ending surgery to repair it..........Man we can't catch a break.

                Hopefully this kid steps up. If not, JJ should. He should know this offense by now.

                  I think Randle will step up. His main lack of motivation is that he can't rise up on the depth chart enough to get playing time. IF he can get motivated he can make some great plays for us. Still wish we had Manningham (he's the first player in ever to have a decent football career after leaving the Giants), but we don't, so we need him to step up now...

                  However, I also see us running an offense more like we had vs. Carolina. The Browns and Panthers don't have the same level of defense that the Eagles do, and so I forsee Bennett going up the field more this game, rather than being kept in to block all the time. Still, we need that 3rd WR out there...
                  I have to disagree. This is the NFL where you can't lay back until your number is called. You have to be ready when your number is called as was Cruz, Brown, Will Hill, Stevie Brown, Wilson, and so on.

                  It sounds to me like Randle has an attitude problem and here we are, at a place where he could make a difference, and people who know him is worried about his wanting to be here.

                      This is just an example of the things we don't know. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that we will never hear about.

                        Even that might not be enough. Dude is on pace for another 1500 yard season and is going to command a huge salary. Especially with his uncanny abilities in the slot.

                          Yeah you're right. But I think it will be more like 6 years 35 mil. I feel like 9.5 million a year is just too much and the Giants wont pay that. Plus we need to sign Hakeem eventually and Cruz & Hakeem will probably have very similar deals. there is no way we can pay 2 WR's 8+ Million a year.

                            So lets do the math:

                            Nicks: base salary this year : 750,000
                            Cruz: base salary this year: 490,000
                            Hixon: base salary this year: 615,000
                            Barden: base salary this year: 565,000
                            Randle: base salary this year: 390,000
                            Jernigan: base slary this year: 465,000

                            That is one CHEAP WR corps compare to their production. Good job Front Office, well done..
                            Thats pretty amazing that we have all 6 of our main WR's this year for only 3.2 Million. Thats what some teams pay for only ONE WR.

                            For Comparison:
                            Vincent Jackson base salary this year: 11 MILLION holy camels!!
                            Brandon Marshall base salary this year: 9.3 MILLION wowww we have a deal here!!!

                              I mostly agree but then....

                              I watch post after post criticizing the organization for not playing this guy and that guy, insulting the coaches who do this for a living when we don't have a clue about anything other than what we see on the field on game days. There are always reasons some players don't break through and this is a perfect example of why coaches should get the benefit of the doubt.

                                What is this garbage on this thread libeling Randle? It takes time for receivers to learn an offense and become comfortable in a massively complex offense in which routes are run on intuition. We are just finished hearing all sorts of blather how it took three years for Barden and Toomer before him to become established receivers.

                                First, someone says not motivated. Next, he has an "attitude problem." Are you armchair coaches in the locker room establishing this information first hand?

                                Did Eli have an attitude problem when he stunk up the place in his first year, when he was thrust into the lineup to gain experience and showed facial expressions that some didn't like?
