Thread: Why do people think Cruz is easily replaceable?

    My thoughts exactly. There would be no hard feelings if he gets a lucrative contract elsewhere they we can't match. I was very encouraged by what I saw from of JJ and Randle. It would suck, but Eli will have these guys ready to play.

    We will be fine if Cruz is gone. How quickly many of you forget lessons of the past.

    If cruz is gone we will still have Nicks, Randle, Hixon, Barden, Jernigan....Bennett. C'mon guys.

    Players will step up and some player we dont even know of will catch our eye once again.

    AKA: If cruz wants 10 mil/year...to hell with him

    Wait hold on, so Cruz who has PROVEN to be an elite receiver should go, because HOPEFULLY other guys like Jernigan and Barden who have proven to not play up to expectations are going to step up? I agree that he can't get paid like like a number one receiver, but to say he's easily replaceable and other guys can mimick his success is absolutely absurd.
    I thought we had something special!!!

    I'd rather lose Eli than Cruz.

    Torque it till it breaks, then back off a quarter turn.

    This team couldn't even make do without Manningham, I hate to think how it'd fare without Cruz. He's that ingrained in the offensive gameplan.

    Also, Barden and Bennett are both free agents.

    Don't over pay him. Wouldn't want to lose him but if he wants to much let him walk. Same goes for Nicks when his turn is up. Just draft well.

    I know it will come down to $. I think we have a bit more depth on offensive skill positions. If he wants too much, he's gone. The money will be used for other areas more in need of upgrading. It would be sad though.

    Manningham leaving had nothing to do with this seasons bad play. We had a weak O line,weak LBs and a ton of injuries. He was a nice receiver who imo made more mistakes than good plays. No more than that.
