    I agree with this part, but how does that say anything about whether or not he's a good player right now?

    As for him being "exposed" when Nicks was injured, I tottaly disagree with that. He still managed to get over 1000 yards and that would've been more if he didn't drop some balls. He needs to reduce the drops I'll admit but that can't be blamed on Nicks not being there lol

    It would suck, but I'd take comfort in the fact that we'd be getting a 1st rounder in compensation for a guy we didn't even draft.

    If some other teams offers him significantly more money than us, why shouldn't he take it? Sure we were the team that gave him a shot, but that doesn't mean he should feel beholden to us, especially if we're not even in the ball park of what the other team's offer is.

    Cruz doesn't owe us anything. His past two seasons have put him in the situation to get paid. He has given the Giants way more production than they paid him for. And now it's his turn to do what's best for him. I hope he stays but if the Giants don't give him the best deal, I won't hold it against him if he leaves. It's all business.

    as long as the Giants make him a fair offer I highly doubt he goes anywhere...his mom and fiance's family both live in the local area. They also live near the stadium

    Maybe I'm too optimistic but I don't see us letting him walk. I think it's almost certain that he isn't going anywhere but that's just my opinion

    Yeah, I'd have to say it was more because of his academic problems and going to UMASS.

    At first I'd feel a bit:



    But that'd quickly move on to:

    Exactly. Cruz flunked out, wasn't focused but then once he started playing again and got himself back together, his coaches had nothing but high praise for him.
