    And this is all to be expected. I know fans want the Giants to just sign him, but thats not going to happen. They have him for another year, to watch his production and make sure he stays healthy before signing him. The only way hes getting signed before this season, is if another team makes an offer and we have to match.

    Hey I dont like it anymore than anyone else, but its a business. Its just the way it is. You ride it out and make sure Cruz stays healthy, then resign him.

We replaced Smith and Eli will make the next guy after Cruz if necessary. like others have said though; probably no ones going to gamble giving this guy big money plus losing a fist. We can always hope though. remember, Randle still has huge potential and Nicks is really the man.
      Ridiculous. I love it when message board geeks call professional football players "wimps".

        This is just so wrong. How many games did Cruz miss last season? Can you help me understand "always wimping (sp) out"? How does he lead the team in receptions two years straight if that's the case.

          And now the Rams are out of the hunt according to the NY Post.

              Before you guys jump all over the guy he does make a good point ... Cruz definitely caught a case of the yips last season at certain points (and in his defense he did take some massive shots over the middle).

              I wouldn't say that defines him but lets not pretend we didn't all see the alligator arms now and again.

                A small glitch in what is otherwise a lot of game.

                  I think it's more a case of concentration. He makes his living by making the frist defender miss. He sometimes takes that peek before he has the ball. Many see that as his being scared, which I don't buy. He has taken some serious hits, gets up and continues to play. What else do we want him to do, besides catch everything?

                    I would wholeheartedly agree.

                    We're talking about two different things. He does have a habit of looking up field before securing the ball, causing a lot of easy drops yes. But last year he also caught a case of the yips, looking at the oncoming tackler before securing the ball. That's just worrying about being hit. I don't fault the guy, but I wanted to point out that the poster wasn't totally off base. While I wouldn't go so far as to call Cruz a "wimp" you could definitely tell it was weighing on his mind after the first big hit he took across the middle last year.

                      Well stated! Wimp no, gun shy yes. Cruz has a lot of talent and brings big play potential . However he dropped an awful lot of catchable balls and at times looked more worried about being hit than catching the ball. There is no denying it unless your heads in the sand. he needs to man up a bit. Everyone doesn't have to be equally in love with Cruz on this board.

                        And I was not being mean . . . .since I proudly consider myself one of the message board "geeks" that I was refering to!

                          The deadline for other trams to sign restricted free agent Victor Cruz to an offer sheet is April 19.
                          There's still a month to go before the deadline, but we don't expect an offer to come through at this point. Any team signing Cruz would have to surrender a first-round pick and pay him as a top-10 (or better) wideout. Given the state of the market and lack of cap space around the league, it's unrealistic. Once April 19 passes, the only team Cruz will be able to play for in 2013 is the Giants.

                            And for the record, I have absolutely no moral qualms about calling Jay Cutler a wimp from the confines of my Cheeto-encrusted couch
