Why do people think Cruz is easily replaceable?

    We won't be cutting many players purely for cap reasons that have produced for us, save maybe Boley.

    The bigger problem is that we have a lot of salary tied up in players that haven't been producing (Webster, etc.).

    Our window won't be closing because of salary cap problems; if it closes at all it is because we have guys not playing as well as they should.

          • Corey will be back next year for his final year. I think he will have a good year- unless we run up against Flacco. Thomas, Amakamura, Webster and Hosley - I think this is a good group of cb's.

                • and that sucks too. I guess I was being overly optimistic. Thomas is short term. Gints in a world of hurt. No depth at corner. Talking about letting KP go so safety position iffy. Linebacker problems. OL weaknesses. Cruz leaving. Eli failing. Ahmad B hurt. Cap problems. DC ineptitude. I think I'll go have a drink.

                    • My response if he leaves? Business is business and not to be taken personal. In the free agency era, Probably like 10% of the players that make it to their 2nd contract finish with the teams that they started with. It would suck, but I'm not going to be mad at him and want his first born dead like some of our fans did when Steve Smith left. It would suck if he left, but I'm not going let it ruin my life.

                      • I don't think he is at all, in fact I'm really worried we are going to lose him.

                        • I honestly think Eli can throw to anyone who can stay healthy and put in reps with him. Nicks is without a doubt Giants #1. Cruz does his thing, when not scared to get hit, which will only get worst for him. As long as Eli has coverage/time it doesn't matter who's catching, but right now with Nicks and Randle, I personally rather see the o-line built than pay Cruz to much or to put it in another way, what he wants.

                            But Nicks is one of those who wasn't healthy and Cruz has lead all receivers in 2011 and 2012. What have you seen from Randle that makes you think he can replace Cruz? How much is Cruz asking for?

                            • It will suck WHEN we lose Cruz. I don't see how he stays

                              • even if we resign Cruz, this is our last year with both he and nicks at receiver.

                                I don't see Cruz resigning, he could want 8-10 million a year. Even if he does resign, then we won't keep Nicks. Who would you rather resign, Cruz or Nicks?

                                IMO, It's more likely we have neither Cruz or Nicks in 2014 than keeping them both, I'd rather see Cruz stay, guy has more big play ability and stays healthy. I think Randle could fill in nicely if Nicks left
