    Me too.

    But there is no way Nicks gets a 5-7 year, 7-9 million/year contract without Cruz getting the same.

    Can we afford two 6 year contract worth 16-18 million per year combined?? Thats a serious cap hit.

    Here's a quote of Cruz:

    “Rueben has to understand that this is a business now, it’s not just come out here, lollygag, because you may not be getting as much reps as somebody else, that you shouldn’t be giving as much effort," Victor Cruz told The Post. “He has to understand that each and every day he walks in here he’s a professional and he has to perform no matter what’s being asked of him."

    I'm not sure what you mean by "convenient" but whatever Randle is or isn't doing has gotten some attention now that we need him to step up.

    Front Office either explains this to both players and they come to terms with making only 5-6 mil a year and having one of the best Tandems in the league, or one of them walks...

    Pretty much. There'll be more in endorsements and extra-curricular activities for Victor than for Hakeem so if both players are willing to be flexible and keep this together, I'd think Hakeem would get the bigger deal with Victor agreeing to take less considering Victor will be able to make a lot more off the field than Hakeem ever will.

    I think they find a way to keep them both as long as Eli is expected to be here.

    Collinsworth mention his work ethic during the game. Before that I had never heard of Randle having an issue. I guess that info is out there for a reason.
    Cruz is doing the righ thing. Every player has to practice like he is a starter. If you practice like a back up then you will always be one.
    Practice how you play.....right???

    I'm not a big fan of airing locker room laundry, but here's a case where Randle is going to have to be "next man up" and, it seems, he's not been preparing for that eventuality.

    I meant that the late news of Barden's concussion seemed a little convenient . . . like a belated excuse for his mistakes down the stretch of the Eagles loss.

    sometimes that work though. Hopefully it does. The kid seems to have the skills. Now he needs the attitude and desire.

    Does Cruz really come off as though he would feel that way?
