    personally, i could care less what is gauranteed and what isn't. That just factors into what the owners have to pay and what flexability we could have in restrcuturing and setting up to cut.

    im more worried abotu total cap number.

    Hes probably worth that but like i've been saying for the past two years I don't think we can swing it.

    I agree with some others, can't say i'd be that distraught if hes gone. Extra 1st rounder and cap space. As long as we got Eli, then i bELIeve.

    Anybody hear Jenkins on NFL radio? Said Eli was a main part of why hes a giant.

    boooyaAAA

    His production does not warrant his contract. Playing nickle is overblown, he was playing safety alot last year and STILL had miscues. Hes not bad by anymeans but that contract was way too much.

    So I would assume Cruz changing agents is an advantage to us, right?

    the way it went down leads me to believe that maybe the Giants gave him a desent offer that his other agent turned down or advise Cruz to test the waters ...And Cruz throught the offer was ok ...wtfk

    Some players arent as dumb as we think lol. It's possible that some people just REALLY want to stay with the team that helped make them. I really hope this is the case. I really feel our offense is SOOOO much more dynamic with multiple WR threats. That's a somewhat generic statement obviously. but we're going to have a "new" running game....and with Eli at the helm, having multiple threats like we USED to puts us at a huge advantage!

    Yes and there is not doubt in my mind that front office is trying do exactly what you say...I can't get all up in arms about what these guys make, how the FO does it or what the cap is....What I do get up arms about is when this teams falls flat on their face on Sundays ....
