NYG4life has a thread asking who wants SS back. He is in support of bringing him back, as am I and 20 others currently. The nays are something like 58, which is mind-blowing to me.
What is with the hate? The guy did his job exceptional well, temporarily held some Giants WR records, helped us win a SB in his rookie year, and did it all professionally.
Then he suffers a career ending injury and signs with are arch-rivals who offer him 3 or 4 times the guaranteed money than the Giants do and now most people hate him. BUT IT'S A BUSINESS, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT????
Now, MM is looking for a # 2 WR contract which we can't afford to give him. Couldn't the SS naysayers ask, "MM, where's your loyalty? Come back to the NYG at # 3 WR money otherwise we're going to hate you forever." But that's not the attitude on the boards. The attitude has been accepting that he's gone and thanks for the memories.
If the Eagles were to sign MM at # 2 WR money which we won't give him anyway, would you hate MM like you do SS? I doubt it, and why? Because it's our FO taking the initiative to say "no thanks" instead of the player saying "no thanks" to our offer.
It always feels better to be the one doing the breaking up. Enough with the SS hate already. SS doesn't deserve to be crapped on.
