steve smith (panthers) 3rd
And a bunch of other late 1st round picks are great recievers. it's not hard to find WR talent in the NFL.
Doesn't matter for the rest, you basically made the same points. I don't think Cruz's play this year justifies him getting a big contract,
If they give him 5-6 million a year with the garunteed money not huge then I'd be happy with how Reese handled it.
Youre only as good as your last season.
Being at a skill position like wr and rb that is.. qb's are more consistent but wr's and rb's can have one bad year and drop off quickly.
or one bad injury.
But that hasn't happened with Cruz and he's already set records in his first season. Your logic is silly, as Cruz is hands down the most explosive WR we've ever had. The Giants have always had possession receivers, I can't remember the last explosive WR we've had, possibly Stephen Baker but that was a long long time ago. Just admit it, you don't like Cruz because of all his commercials and publicity, not because you honestly think he's easily replaceable.
I don't care about his first season it's irellevant, Plaxico Burress had a good 2007-2008 year for us, should we sign him? And no, we haven't had a lot of good receivers period.
He had an off year this year without Nicks commanding attention as he does when he's healthy. Cruz benefits off Nicks and didn't have a great season like the year before, he can't carry the load like Nicks did once.
