  • Where is Hakeem Nicks that I used to know?

    Sure he's not 100% but my gosh, he didn't even show up. I've been a big supporter of Nicks, but if he doesn't show up next week again, he can just leave and get his fat contract somewhere else.

    He is hurt. The problem is he is always hurt. Honestly they have to consider what he is worth when his contract is up. He is tough as nails but if he can't help the team they can't give him a monster deal.

      Don't take it personal, we're just debating.

        His lack of presence in the offense this year has been severe. He doesn't snatch balls, doesn't dive for balls, doesn't box out for balls. He's just not physical. It's obvious how much he wants to play even when the world knows he's injured, but the coaching staff should have more say in this. Randle could have run the routes that Nicks ran today, and he's healthy. I think they gave Hixon more targets in the second half when they saw that Nicks was ineffective. I don't know what's so complicated about the Giants offense that Randle couldn't do in stead of Nicks. It's painful to say this, but Nicks is a liability now.

          They brought him back way too soon -- the idea that half of Nicks is better than no Nicks was plainly wrong. It seemed like they were letting him make the call on when he would play and practice, which is usually a mistake -- a player of his ability rarely admits he's a liability.

            Dude, hurt players do more then Nicks... I mean, hes been flat out invisible for most part, and to not get even 1catch tonigth? Just on being a good WR, and in his 4th season, he should be able to get open a couple times and make a couple catches..

            I remember hering something about his not staying in shape at UNC when he was coming out, and to be honest, hes not the most cut up guy, and maybe theres a little truth to that? I don't know, but either way, he needs to be more productive , regardless of where he at with that injury..

              Nicely put.
              For a Giant fan that I personally knew: My mom. May she smile and be delighted whenever her favorite player - Victor Cruz - scores a touchdown and does his salsa dance.

              Thank you mom for everything! Let's Go Giants!

                  Because he's never healthy.

                      You guys weren't bashing him in the playoffs last year... Some of you guys need to relax.

                        In case you haven't noticed, this isn't last year and the playoffs are nowhere to be seen.

                        Anyway, Nicks' struggles fall on the training staff and coaches.

                          I still think Nicks is a beast when healthy

                            My biggest issue with Nicks going forward is that he can't seem to stay healthy (not particularly his fault ... some guys just aren't built for the NFL). Considering they're all lower leg injuries to boot, you have to wonder what the front office will be thinking when evaluating his contract potential.
                            I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)
