    not much as far as a WR YET...but i think that has to do with the fact he barely gets any playing time. He was drafted to play the slot, not knowing what we had in Cruz at the time. I think he will be a pretty good player when given the chance, It's just my opinion. He fast as hell, and hes exciting with the ball in his hands. I know this is the NFL, but go watch some of his college tape

    completely agree with you, I'm not saying to not sign Cruz, I think the kid is awesome

    We've done plenty time before, so it wouldn't surprise me.

    If the Giants lose Cruz, Reese deserves to be condemned to listening to Rex Ryan press conferences endlessly through headphones glued to his ears for eternity!
    And I'm telling you right now, they're not going to be able to keep both Cruz AND Nicks.

    I understand what you're saying, but I want to see what he's done in the NFL, not in college.

    Not to worry, my Crystal Ball predicts Cruz is a Giants next season.

    I thought I would just take a sec. to remind everyone that Cruz is not worth 10mil/year. And if push comes t shove, we can be a productive offense without him.

    I think he's worth it, but we can't pay him that much. SOOOO hopefully he understands and him and Reese can negotiate.

    I agree with that, but he can't get on the field with a healthy and very good Cruz in front of him. He's not gonna play out wide like Hakeem, Randle, Barden, Hixon..he is a slot reciever. He was getting worked into the offense a little more towards the end of the year in 4 WR sets

    Why do people think Cruz is easily replaceable?

    I'm not going to pull up his stats because I'm sure most of you know how elite his numbers are.
    I've seen many people say that Jernigan or Barden will step up in his place..what? In what way? I barely see Jernigan play and Barden played one good game out of the four years he's been here.

    I understand giving guys a chance to play and step up, but to just assume that they can perform at the same level Cruz has performed is absurd.
