Jaak, there's actual news out there now that the BYE is over, you don't have to dig into the archives of irrelevalnt threads
“Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” MB Rule # 1
All this stuff about bad routes and being "dumb" is so overhyped. The kid had almost 1000 yards and 9 TD'd in 2010 in part time duty. Hixon has never approached that. Hixon is a role player. MM is a threat. No one is concerned that Domenik Hixon is going to burn them. MM has burned plenty of defenses.
The way this thread is worded makes NO sense. If there was no salary cap, the answer is clearly yes. Did MM have some issues yes, but as a third receiver in this system he was very effective. He clearly would have helped when Nicks as out...
However, and unless MM was willing to take a much much smaller deal, the Giants had no choice. It's not just about this year, but the next few years. You can't tie that much money in one position (with contracts for Cruz and Nicks coming up)
Lastly, you just can't cut people either-one you don't get full salary cap relief and two you have to sign someone else to take his place. So, if you cut Bass you still have to find someone to play in his roster spot.
Get use to this because the Giants are going to be in the same position for the next few years with other players.
prediction here. we will see this same thread when osi leaves.
We also don't know what type of salary demands he was making to the Giants and what the Giants were willing to pay. That's a big piece of the puzzle.
P.S. I don't know why, but I find the fact that Jak misspelled "dumb" incredibly amusing.
