  • Nicks has to get his act together

    He has been dropping too many passes lately. Can't rely on Cruz alone. If Manningham and Ballard do not return we cann not get by with just Cruz. Barden hasn't shown he is ready to step in and pick up the slack. Beckum is useless.

    Nicks needs to throw away those artic gloves and start playing like a man instead of a little girl.

      LOL yes... stop dropping passes, easy or difficult & start FIGHTING for positioning to help Eli out... play like an elite receiver

          He'll get it together. He's the 10th leading receiver in the NFL.

              This'll be the week to do it. Nicks habitually owns Dallas' secondary, in his 4 games against Dallas, Nicks has:

              8 rec. for 163 yards
              5 rec. for 82 yards
              9 rec. for 108 yards and 2 TDs
              2 rec. for 37 yards and 1 TD

              So add those up, and you get 24 rec for 390 yards and 3 TDs.

              Averaging about 6 rec, 100 yards, and a TD a game.

                  Well, he won't have Revis on him this week, so I expect a huge comeback.

                  No Revis and the fact he'll be hungry to redeem himself and MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!!!

                    Simma dunna, now.

                    I know it's 2 consecutive games, but really the Skins game was the one he screwed the pooch (and the 2nd Eagles game, I suppose).

                    Saturday Revis did a good job on him, although Nicks did drop that one in the first qter(?) when he was wide open for the short curl.

                    Dallas has no Revis, or a Cromartie for that matter.

                    He has pride, confidence, unearthly talent, and a good work ethic, by all accounts, so he should have a good day Sun Night.

                    I think 6 receptions for 100 yards, and 1 TD should be about right for him.

                      Our receivers have 29 drops for the year I think. ESPN says that is the second highest total in the NFL. Nicks has 7 of those drops. Cruz has 7 of those drops. I think that's the MO on this group of receivers they tend to make the spectacular catch and drop the easy ones every now and then.

                        You may be right. They aren't the first receivers to be guilty of that, and won't be the last.

                        And don't forget Mario who has had his share of great catches, then some terrible drops (I still can't get that beautiful TD pass that Mario dropped--vs GB? Saints?--in the right corner out of my head)

                        Imagine how much patience Eli must have. It's got to be stressful when they drop perfect passes, as many of the dropped ones have been, and takes a lot for him not to jump all over them--which would only make them more skittish, if he did that.

                          the thing thats so concerning is that the passing game runs through nicks to a large extent.

                          hes the first option on a lot of the plays. when eli has to start double guessing himself bc nicks cant catch a cold, it destroys the offense i.e. vs Washington.

                          he's got to get his act together, or maybe the G-Men need to make Cruz the first option and Nicks the 2nd...

                          remember when we had smith and nicks, teams would double SMITH...just throwing that out there

                            YOu mean he wont have Revis draped all over him without a flag this week.
                            If the Dallas CB's handle our WR's the way Revis did there will be interference or holding calls all day! So i'll take it!

                              The Cowboys are the perfect remedy for Nicks' funk...

                              I'm confident he'll snap out of it Sunday
