I just think that this type of approach (going public with criticism) can get out of control easily and not help the team one bit. I don't disagree one iota with what Cruz is saying.
    I am, as long as its a guy who has had success and is still in the midst of success calling out a rookie whos shown nothing yet.. But any other situation i agree..

    I can see the difference in one of the leaders doing it as you suggest. I just see the disfunction going on with that green team that plays in our stadium and worry about the negative potential.........but I worry about alot of stuff that I shouldn't lol.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    I would be concerned about it if it were a starter and this was something that was controversial, this seems to be common knowledge amongst the players. I think it may be time for Randel to grow up.

    Common knowledge amongst the players? Then why is it only Cruz speaking up? Cruz is in the wrong here and I hope he's been admonished. If Coach Coughlin says the kid is young and working hard and he doesn't care about anyone else's opinion then why the hell do I need to here Victor Cruz's thoughts on the matter? If he's trying to motivate Randle he should learn diplomacy like Eli. Sorry but you don't run off to reporters criticizing your own team mates.

    He didn't run off to reporters, didn't they ask him? Even Eli said the same thing.

    Well he has his chance to prove everyone wrong this week. I don't expect a rookie to play like a 4 year pro and be as good as Nicks, but the work ethic thing is a separate issue. You can deal with rookie mistakes but a work ethic issue could mean the guy is not motivated or lazy. Hopefully this was nothing named into a big something. I do think Resse is a great GM and he drafted the guy and wanted him. Wasn't there something about how they almost drafted him in the 1st round?
