I know it's popular to suggest Cruz is "scared" to go over the middle, can't catch in traffic, avoids hits, etc. But we've recently seen some film clips that suggest he does all of those things. I don't dispute Nicks may be the more talented of the two on the outside although I honestly don't see a lot of daylight between them. Cruz is effective in the slot or on the outside.
What I think is the most important issue is that Nicks and Cruz complement each other to such an extent that they can be the best receiving tandem in the NFL and that's why I will miss Cruz when he leaves.

and that also could be important with the cruz aspect bc we all know how effective he is out of the slot. well if nicks could be that effective, albeit in a diff style, wouldnt that hurt cruz's negotiations a little?
Wtf last time I posted this thread was at 13 pages; 60 pages now!!!?
It's so easy to find a slot receiver too. No need to overpay a player that can play well in the slot.
