  • Hakeem Nicks: "Stats are for girls"

    Nicks' stats are down so far this year. He has 27 catches for 390 yards and one touchdown in the six of nine games he's been able to play. His lone trip to the end zone came Week 2 against Tampa Bay.

    "Stats is for girls. Itís football, man," Nicks said. "The season is going to be up and down. Itís about how you ride the wave and if you let it affect you. I know Iím a great football player, and weíre ready to make this run after the bye week."

        He's right. However, he is hurt. So I'm not upset about his stats, I don't play fantasy football. I'm more worried that he is not healthy and playing on that knee will make it worse. He should probably sit. Lol. Watch he plays and has a career day now. I hope they know that before they make that run after the bye they have to play the Bengals.

          i don't know about that.. I mean stats do speak volume at certain positons with WR being right up there.. I mean, if u got 1TD after 6or so games and less then 400yrds recieving adn ur as good as Hakeem Nicks, then ur simply not producing.. I don't wanna here about injury, as Calvin Johnson's been dealing witha nerve damage issue and a knee issue and has had many more games of production then Nicks has to this point, with a heck of alot more coverege..

          I bet he won't be saying stats are for girls in his contract talks when hes bringing up all his big seasons with us every other sentence outta his mouth..lol

                Dunno how to feel bc alot of the nicks haste is knee jerk imo. Hes played in six games, if u rpoject those six games into a season hes at 80 rec. 1k yards...hes just not making the plays we have all come to expect and a large portion of his stats from this yr r from the tb game.
                i think his issue is more mental than physical. Remember how tuck was saying his injury had him hesitating and thinking when he would have just done something instinctly. Think thats the issue with nicks.
                also believe hes gonna get back to form and that itll start vs cinc

                  But you said that injuries aren't an excuse, I don't think that's fair.

                  And before Hakeem's injury, Hakeem always seemed to beat the double coverage as well.

                    I think that tb game and the guys stepping on his foot after his knee jammed the turf could be somewhere in the back of his mind. Football is largely mental we all know that. Nicks was out on the field, yeah maybe hes a half a step slower right now butthe nicks i know could spot the corner two steps and still destroy him.
                    think this week is when he starrs piecing it together

                      His stats are down because he is hurt. That's bad. If his stats where down because teams where doubling him and the rest of the WR's where benefiting from it than yes, stats are useless. It's all about winning football games.

                        Stats are important in the correct context. When specifically speaking about Nicks, you can point out his injury issues and say that his lower production is slightly excused.

                        I hear you on that but you do have to consider Megatron is way more physically gifted than Nicks as well. Not only is he stronger and faster but he's more durable as well.

                          ya, i here ya, but nicks has been utterly pathetic.. I mean, just about any reciver on our team would be producing more in his spot and for such a gifted player whos a former 1st rd pick, whos been practicing for most part the past few weeks, then i expect more..

                          I'm not on his junk like everyone else seems to be, becuase the guys out there, and if hes that hurt where he simply can't produce, then take a freaking seat.. Hes killing us right now..

                          Hakeem Nicks had staying in shape issues at UNC, and it annoys me that hes so injury prone knowing that.. To me, he looks outta shape most times in his uniform, with kinda a beer belly type look(for lack of a better word), and i can't say for sure, but i wonder if his injury proneness has anything to do with that?

                          Don't get me wrong, i love the guy, but statements like this are annoying to me, when i 100pct realize hes only saying it because he has no stats.. So can JERRY REESE say to him in contract talks when Hakeem and his agent are gushing about his 1000yrd seasons and big games, that "stats are for girls", all we care about is the fact ur injured every yr???

                            If the OL could give Eli more time, every WR on the team would have better stats.

                              Stats are important but the guy has missed 3 games and he has 400 yards.If he was healthy and played those games who knows how many yards and td's he would have. I still believe in Nicks and I'm happy about what he said...it shows that he is team player and all he cares about is the w. One thing I'll admit the td's are very disappointing.
