    Just because you helped us win a SB your first season doesn't give you a free pass to stink it up half of the next season and still retain your "NFL Value"
    If Santonio Holmes is worth 8-9 million a year, how much is Cruz worth? Holmes best season of his career was arguably worse than Cruz's season this year in which people think he under performed.

    Well it certainly came across as though you were diminishing his TDs bc it was ONLY one more. My apologies if I interpreted it wrong.

    Another poster was saying that he had more receptions and TD's this year than last, and I was just pointing out that his receptions and TD's the past two years have been almost identical. He did put up more yards last year, but he had a very good year this year as well.

    So tag Cruz, get a first round for him. Draft Tavon Austin.

    I love Cruz, but everyone is replaceable.

    ill lose respect for the giants if they disrespect cruz like that. he should be able to at least make 7-8 mill a year. he earned it.
    Don't take it personal, we're just debating.

    I would love to keep all three together especially since we have bigger fish to fry in the trenches and almost everywhere else.
    Rememeber, Nicks isn't a FA until 2014 so we could do Bennett and Cruz, hopefully

    How did he "stink it up" by adding another 1,000 yard season to the 1,500 the previous season and leading all receivers again? You might have a point if the rest of the offense was clicking but we all know that wasn't the case.

    Should we take some of Eli's money because he did some stinking up of his own? How many games with ZERO TDs?

    Rest easy - he's a Giant next year.

    Cruz's best game was against Tampa....oh but wait a minute he was paired up with Nicks who had an even better game. If Nicks wasn't playing that day then Cruz probably wouldn't of even broke 100 yards and probably doesn't get his 1000 yard season.

    I'm not saying he does not deserve Big money Ever....but let's face it he dropped way too many passes this year and frankly did not look like the same player a year ago. That raises question marks.

    This season makes me believe that Cruz is only "Great" when he is paired up with Nicks...by himself he is a "Good" receiver. I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks this.
