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
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.
