  • If Cruz were to leave

    Where is Steve Smith now? Don't get me wrong, I don't think for one second Cruz is going anyplace, but if it did happen, just thinking about possible replacements.

    Jerrel Jernigan...the guy who was originally drafted to fill SS12's role in the slot.

        SS's knee is shot. Don't think he'd be the same player he was.

          Jernigan would play the position. The actual production slack would be picked up by Nicks, Randle, and Wilson...

          The fact that the team was using Jernigan in 4WR singleback double flex formation a lot towards the end of the season tells me the team was trying him out to possible be our starting slot receiver next season in case we lose Cruz. New England and SF are two teams that could try to claim him off waivers... Cruz would spell a departed Welker quite effectively, and SF has a metric asston of picks to throw our way, while their best wideout is Manningham (who coincidentally as we all know worked with Cruz before)

              They also have way more FA than we do...

                Wouldn't mind a team with high cap space that is drafting mid level giving up their first round pick to us
                Football has been very, very good to us.
                After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                4-New York Giants!!!
                5-NE
                Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                  Cruz will most likely be here this year or else we'll have another first round pick. Steve Smith is out of the question. We need to move forward and Smith has not shown anything since he left the Giants, whose medical staff said he wasn't ready. I think if for some reason Cruz is gone, holds out, etc. the Giants have enough confidence in one of their youngsters to replace him. They might not get the same production but they will probably have enough to take pressure off Nicks to be effective.

                    Steve Smith is no longer Steve Smith. Cruz is playing here in 2013.

                      Cruz will be playing for the G'men, at least for 13 after that he may go fishing for his big deal!

                        People keep saying CInci but they have a bunch of young WR talent . That cap space is misleading because by next season Geno Atkins, AJ Green , Carlos Dunlap and Andy Dalton will need new deals.
                        SF is brought up but next season Aldon Smith, Kaepernick,Crabtree, Iupati are all eligible for new deals. If I was SF I would rent Revis to try to win a Super Bowl. Windows can slam quickly. Justin Smith is getting older lots of younger players will need big deals they will lose depth they should go for it.

                          Cruz can't leave.

                          He's the only current Giant left that I have a jersey for.

                            Why does everyone think he will not be playing here next year?

                              Familiarize yourself with Jernigan and Steve Smith will not be part of your thought process. JJ has way more potential than Dteve Smith and he is already on our roster.
