Nicks is def. the most physical WR we've had.....large majority of his plays are made in traffic with lots of contact. he's a playmaker for sure.
Coughlin soundbyte shows Dezz was right....there's something going on with him....
Like Jimmy Graham, Gronk, Megatron, Marshall, Damarius Thomas etc.....
That is why our red zone struggles continue.
And I love Nicks but Plaxico with his size and length had much better ability to use his physicality to gain position and catch a ball in coverage.
edit - ALL those guys you mentioned are much bigger than Nicks, whether in height or in just mass
We thought that maybe Barden might be when we drafted him but that didn't turn out well.
When we had Shockey and Plaxico, Eli had no problem throwing it into the endzone with those guys covered. Because they were physical and would make the plays.
We don't have THAT kind of guy right now. So our RZ woes continue.
Whats everyone doing for thanksgiving?? Give me stuffin and graaavy
Nicks was told that since he didn't practice during the week, he wasn't playing.
Some idiot reporter asked;
"Did Hakeem FIGHT YOU GUYS to stay in the lineup?"
TC said.."No, not really".
TC never used those words. It was a reporter trying to stir **** up and it worked on you guys.
The reality is that Nicks doesn't trust the Giants medical staff after last season and saw a doctor this week outside the team and TC got pissed.
I don't blame nicks one bit for his failure to trust them.
