    When he does catch he drops to the ground a lot...like I said...hes a good reciever but he isnt great.

    am i at the wrong site or something? cuz what ive seen is someone dares to stand up for eli and their fanhoods questioned, at least as much as the counter example. "your a fan of eli. your not a fan of the nyg" but I digress...i think that for the most part this threads been very fair. now i havent been in the discussion for pages, but it seemed to me like most of us are torn. we desperately want cruz back, but also realize the consequences of overpaying.

    I know, I'm just wondering how he has back to back 1,000 yard seasons if he "doesn't catch half" of the balls thrown to him" and "drops to the ground a lot" when he does catch them.

    Does he think he's great? if he does he will be asking for big money.

    id say hes a great wr and its not even difficult. ive seen him give himself up only when it was the correct thing to do. hes thinking YAC and TD every time he gets the ball in his hands, but has the wisdom to see when the risk is too high and a fumble is just as likely if not more than a td.

    bottom line; can we replace cruzs production? can we attain the same end result numbers, whether by 1 or a collection of players? thats the question here. I dont think we can. But, I also never thought we'd replace ss12. two different players/situations tho. cruz is healthy, and he was the one who replaced ss12. i think JR will see it this way and give him a long term deal worth 6 mil and a signing bonus that brings the yearly net worth to 8 mil, jmho

    Well he certainly caught more than 50% of his targets.

    I've no issue with him dropping to the ground, better that than getting lit up. Peyton Manning often sacks himself - no-one complains about that. It's self preservation.

    Personally, I wouldn't want to see the offense without Cruz.

    I think the Super Bowls win pretty much prove that!
