    What's wrong with being a Cruz fanboy?

    Because TC didn't feel he was ready. He was still learning. It certainly wasn't because they were worried about his next contract being to high. That is for damn sure. What you are suggesting just doesn't happen..

    Maybe if they would've let Carr split snaps with Eli a few years who, we wouldn't be in such cap hell right now! Lmao!

    As far as money it was posted a month or so ago that they might have in the neighborhood of $60 million next year so signing guys like Nicks, JPP, and Joseph won't be a problem. When healthy he is a force and makes the offense much better. He puts up numbers with the tour WR's too. Is he worth top 5 money? Don't know, he does get dinged up a lot and he is still playing a rookie contract.

    Im not sure where you're getting at with this, or how you came to this conclusion. So ill ignore it until you further explain your reasoning behind this comment.

    and, Ben prob couldnt run our system, not as well as eli thats for sure, based off of how hes run offenses not near as complex his entire career. ben has size, and can break tackles. eli cant. coaches can recognize this, i know, shocking. whether he can or cant really isnt even the debate, seeing as hes never before. its more along the lines of extending a play, and finding a wr behind the D.
    I understand that when we think of big ben we think of breaking tackles and extending the play because thats his trade mark. mahammad ali was known for his quick jab, but he had to throw hooks and upper cuts too. Calvin johnson is known for jumping up and catching the football over multiple people. But at the end of the day he has to block, run short to intermediate routes and be a receiver just like everyone else.

    Yes big ben is known for extending the play because hes good at it, but at the end of the day he has to be a QB. that means he has to stand in the pocket and deliver throws into tight areas and read defenses just like everyone else.

    I mean did u bother to realize that Wallace was a shell of himself bc the OC they couldnt wait to fire predicated the offense on shorter-intermediate stuff based on reading the D (more similar to our O than the O's he's led)
    last time i checked our offense needs to dink and dunk more and use more short passes, which is something you agreed and tried to point out before. the big play Offense he led in the past seems more similar to how we run our offense now. We dont use a lot of short passes at all in our offense.

    also, what does wallace not playing good have to do with the fact ben played good? he missed 3 games but had 28 tds to only 6 interceptions, and 3,265 passing yards. and how is a dink and dunk offense complicated? isnt that simplifying things more?


    And its been well documented for some time that Bens strength isnt reading Defenses.
    His strength is extending the play. But because his best attribute is extending the play, it doesnt mean he cant read defenses at a high level. You have to be able to read defenses in order to last as a qb in the nfl. You've made this point about rg3 many times before. I am going to highlight these words and please feel free to quote me on this. In order to be a successful QB in this league, you have to be able to read defenses.

    In fact, when he does so is when he gets into trouble, which is why defenses want to keep Ben inside the pocket and force him to be a pocket qb snap after snap. the plays he breaks a tackle, escapes outside, are almost always the plays that are the big type plays for Pitt. even in last years offense...
    its not just ben. when qbs are able to buy extra time, in general it usually doesnt end well for the defense. It can be any QB.

    Now Im sure Drez didnt word it nearly as sophomoric as you did in the first place, something I've noticed is done for effect...but ultimately, for those who understand logical reasoning/debate, it just represents another logical fallacy...and, you've made some "out there" statements yourself, didnt u claim rodgers never misses throws that eli misses or something i remember u PM'd me that or smething lol
    That wasnt done for effect. I made the point about ben the same way i did in this post back then. And he stood by his argument that ben cant read defenses. I'll say it again. As a QB you have to be able to read defenses or else you wont last long in this league.

    and d.thomas looks like hes gonna be a great wr, even if he is better, thats still 1 wr outta 1000. i know u used him as an example, and also know u dont rank nicks near top 5 when healthy, so lets just go ahead and u list the wr's better than nicks...clear cut better. id figure u could list maybe 10 wrs before the lst started to look moronic...which makes the "average" term used to describe nicks comical
    nicks was a rookie so he wasnt getting that much attention. as a matter a fact i wouldnt be surprised if manningham got more attention that year. and ive listed countless times who i think are better. I think nicks is a top 10 receiver playing under a really good quarterback.

Demaryius thomas was a perfect example of this. Hes much more explosive, quicker and faster than nicks and he has very good hands. Now that peyton is throwing him the football, he straight up blew nicks's averages out of the water with 1400+ yards 94 catches and 10 touchdowns.

    When plax first came to the giants, during his first season as the go to guy he had 1214 yards, 76 catches and 7 touchdowns. And this is during eli's first full season as a starter. This is when eli was young and inexperienced. This is before eli started making the players around him better. I dont have to say much more about plax because we all know how much he meant to our offense and what he did for us on the field.

    When steve smith played the 1 role he had 1220 yards, 107 catches and 7 touchdowns and made it to the probowl. This was arguably better than the regular season performance that nicks had last year when you look at the averages).

    When randell (as a rookie) finally got to play the 1 role during the last game of the season last year, he didnt get many looks but when eli did throw him the ball you seen what he did to the eagles.

    mario manningham has always been the number 3 guy. But in 2010 he had the luxury of playing the 1 role in a number of games for us because of injuries. that year he had 944 yards 60 catches and 9 touchdowns. And he did that as the number 3 guy. when he did start at the 1, he had games where he had 10+ catches for 100+ yards. He averaged about 16 yards a catch and had 944 yards. If he racked up almost 1000 yards in a seaosn as the number 3 guy, imagine if he was the go to guy. In our offensive system we rarely pass the ball to the third receiver..

    Ask yourself this question. What does nicks have that steve smith didnt have? route running? catching? speed?
    History shows that when you get a chance to play the 1 role in our system, you produce and play at a high level.

    If a Qb throws the football to his receiver and the receiver jumps up and catches the ball at the highest point while the defender has his back turned to the football, i look at that as a regular catch. a catch that you're suppose to make. Why? Because i see receivers making those catches all of the time. But i noticed when nicks makes plays like that its HUGE deal, the graffiti falls out of the sky, and hes a top 5 receiver.

    We will agree to disagree about nicks being average. But one thing you cant disagree on is that it doesnt matter who eli is throwing the ball to as long as the offensive line does their job

    If anybody can step in and produce at our #1 receiver spot, why hasnt anyone taken the job from an undoubtably injury-prone Nicks? Seems to me the Giants think he is our best receiver. And i absolutely love how you are ready to anoint Rueben Randle as "ready" to take over for Nicks. He had 1 game, against an awful Philly secondary, in a game that meant nothing. Need i remind you what Nicks did in the 2011 playoffs? Does that get no recognition?? Rueben Randle finished 14th in receptions among rookie receivers last year. 14th! Nicks spent 14 weeks unhealthy, and Randle couldnt edge him out. He couldnt edge out Ramses Barden, and youre ready to give him a go as our #1 receiver? Please tell me what Randle showed you as a rookie that Nicks didnt in his rookie year, besides being called out on national TV for lack of effort in practices?

    he doesnt get the credit he deserves for his route running, and his game speed rivals any other wr I can think of. When healthy, I cant recall 1 time hes ever been caught from behind...he also makes insane catches look easy with those xxxxxl mits of his...he plucks the ball at its highest point, goes across the middle, gets deep, turns short plays into big ones...sure having eli throw helps a ton, but average? pfff lmao. guy had the 2nd greatest 4 game span in postseason history...average would be the last thing id use to describe anything other than maybe his physical build for a nfl wr

    One thing that hasnt been mentioned here is Nicks' attitude. If you want B Marsh or Dez, go ahead and deal with that headache.
