I always knew mario was gone...
I for a few weeks I thought he would stay this year in between Smith leaving and Cruz errupting, but that was always on the wall IMO
I remember Pappy having huge arguements with me how we would have the money...
Honestly even if the cap was 10 more million i still don't think we'd resign him
Well, I think after last season it was a little different. I think that we thought Smith would re-sign, and that we'd have to part with Manningham after this season b/c of the $$....but then when Smith left, we were like...ooooook, well at least we can keep Manningham. Buuuuuuuuttttt...then we got Cruz....stud central!! There's no way we can keep everyone. And Nicks is the best athlete on the field on offense. So he's here long term. So we can build with these 2 youngens!</p>
I mean I never thought Manningham would be cheap. Obviously his price went up cuz of the postseason, but he would always cost a decent contract.
I think there is a scary possibility that we still lose Nicks or Cruz</u>
[/quote]shut your mouth.
We will NOT lose either Nicks or Cruz. Its almost impossible. It is however very unlikely that we keep Manningham. </p>
88 and 80 (barring injury) will be mainstays in Giants blue.</p>
If the Steelers lose Wallace (which I doubt) MM could be a candidate for Pitt. If not I can see SF, Seattle, Cleveland or even NE. (although I think Brandon Lloyd has the inside track for NE)</p>[/quote]
I dunno man its scary. I see a bad future with the Giants and Cruz - may have hold out written all over it. I just can't see us being able to give him a deal within the next year. Then if we do - we are going to be in even worse cap trouble with Nicks contract is due. This is why i am saying Jerry need to KILLL the draft so we can get some young cheap talent for the next two years.
And be careful of that mainstays stuff - we all said the same thing about Smith.
GREAT call for Lloyd to Pats - i think thats the most perfect fit i've heard. Although I could see the Pats trying to make a move on Wallace. Worst case they force Steelers to spend money
