  • Giants' Hakeem Nicks Puts Team Success Ahead Of Best Receiver-Tandem Debate

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...puts_team.html

    Excerpt: "Hakeem Nicks spent part of his off-day visiting an after-school program in East Harlem, helping to connect schoolchildren in need with healthy take-home meals. Then, the Giants receiver was off to a fundraising dinner at Del Frisco’s for his “Helping Hands” program.

    And then, it was back to New Jersey for a critical week of work. The Giants don’t need to beat just any opponent this Sunday, they need to beat the 11-2 Falcons. And they won’t face just any pair of receivers, they’ll face Roddy White and Julio Jones, who many consider the best tandem in the league.

    Nicks would make a different argument, for himself and Victor Cruz.\

    “We’re going to always feel like we’re the best. We strive to be the best,” Nicks said this evening.\\But the soft-spoken Nicks added: “We (aren’t) going to get into that battle, that argument of who’s the best, who’s better, because that’s not what it’s about. It’s going out there and playing team ball, and who’s going to win.”

    Many others will get into that battle for them this week. And back in September, in a sit-down interview on NFL Network with Hall of Famer Michael Irvin, White matter-of-factly deemed he and Jones a “better group” than Nicks and Cruz.

    White noted that Cruz is “a lot more of a slot receiver,” adding “the big boys play on the outside.” Of course, Nicks and Cruz each have what White and Jones do not: a Super Bowl ring.

    “Numbers don’t lie, or Super Bowl rings don’t lie, neither,” said Nicks, who partnered with UnitedHealthcare to support the local food backpack programs. “So when you get (into) that battle about who’s the best, I think you just let your play on the field talk for you. You ain’t got to be talking with your mouth.” Read more...

    See, now that's how you talk about another team without calling them out or kissing up to them.

              I like the fact that he and Cruz did that commercial together

                As long as they're healthy for the playoffs, I like our chances.
