    Why the Nicks injury is actually a positive

    I want Nicks out there as much as anybody (he's killing my fantasy team), but in the long run I think this is a positive.

    If Nicks had a monster year he would be in line for a HUGE contract. He would probably be looking for something just short of Larry Fitz money. Given the Giants have to take care of Cruz with JPP (highest paid defender ever?) on the horizon, I don't know if they would have sprung for that. Now Nicks can't possibly expect a monster contract mainly because of his injury history. Certainly he is due a raise, but it shouldn't be a cap-crippling contract. This way we can keep both Cruz and Nicks for years to come.

    Well that is a decision the Giants will have to make but they really don't have to sign Cruz until 2014 he is a RFA and I'm pretty sure that when that time comes a lot of people will be let go. Also I really think when that time comes Eli will make his voice known that he wants to keep both.The Giants will find a way to keep both. They could let KP go, Rolle, or even Canty. who knows what Tuck will be thinking by then.

    It's alright, Riverboat got me. I have no idea what I'm talking about.I never attack him once but he felt the need to quickly attack my opinion, when other people in here have had the same opinion as me. Whatever, it's really starting to get annoying trying to talk football here with some people (not you g420), I guess next time I'll just keep my opinion to myself lol. This is the only MB I know where you express your opinion and people attack you like your a moron. It's funny too, cause when people start attacking your grammar, they usually have nothing else to fall back on.

    That's so cute that you are sticking up for folks, good for you. You're doing a terrific job policing the interwebs, keep it up! Anyways, you have really put me in the corner. Thank you for showing me the way.

And I doubt that ANY Giants fan would take them over Nicks if not for the simple fact that we won the SB with the damn guy but yeah keep thinking Nicks is a 10-20 wr in the NFL and I don't know what I'm talking about...
    dont sweat it man. i at least can see how u've just been trying to talk football, while riverboat feels the need to attack u bc u have a diff opinion than him.

    Put AJ Green on the Giants with Eli and he averages 100 yards and a TD per game for the season. And those numbers may be low.
    no, ur use of an exception to the rule is irrelevant. we've all heard the trent dilfer sb argument before. a qb who doesnt have to do anything n win a sb is the exception not the rule. just go by the last 10 sb winning qbs...

    Talk to any sane Giants fan and they would even take AJ Green over Hakeem Nicks. No question.

    And if you think we are signing Nicks and Cruz to long-term contracts averaging only 5mil/ year each, you've got a rude awakening headed your way.
    I did. You said it was a positive that he is hurt when it is not. As for signing both players, it can be done cause Osi is not a big factor any more and will be gone so some of that money can go to Nicks. Defense does not have to be perfect and it is hard to find a perfect one. Sometimes offense can be a good defense by keeping the margin high. With Nicks and Cruz together, with some other receiver is all we need. If one of our backs can be a great threat in the passing game, then we don't need a third good wr.

    There is no positive to Hakeem Nicks being hurt no matter how you look at it.

    Hakeem Nicks will get top dollar and we will pay him. He is our best receiver and we can't afford to lose him.

    I bELIeve.

    When I see Nicks in his pads before the 49ers game I will believe it. These inside guys have been wrong before. Remember when Eli was supposed to miss some time back in 2007 because of a shoulder injury? How many games did he miss?

    Eliscruzzz you have abominated this thread. If you didn't know Nicks was scheduled to play against the Eagles than you weren't listening. Riverboat has you on every argument. This is a forum of Giants fans. Not a rambling arena of drawn out sentences.

    Just because you and Adam Schefter think Nicks is playing against the 49ers doesn't make it true. I for one don't think Shefter is a solid source for G-Men insight, I'd much prefer Glazer. I don't think that Nicks will be on the field against the 49ers because of what I've been told. I'll call it an educated guess because of my sources, I'm thinking the Skins is looking for realistic.
    its not shefter tho, he's just reporting what the giants said. and what the giants have said was 100% opposite of what u said, therefore u are wrong. thats not me trying to be personal, but its the truth. u tried saying u can see where he tore his pcl by watching it on the tv lol as well as this "source" u have...well all that doesnt change the fact that u and ur source were wrong...
