Look at the WR's in this league.. Theres just tons of em that simply got a chance and prooved they are nasty, and if they didn't get a chance due to a guy leaving because of money or a injury, you would never even know they were good..
I'm Victors biggest fan, as i called it the 2nd we got em as a UDF a guy to watch out for, and made a thread on these very boards the day of the Jets preseason game titled "victor cruz gonna break out big vs jets!".. I'm a W.MASS guy, so knew about em before most.. Either way, that would simply be a stupid contract to give a WR whos numbers dropped last yr...
Cruz is explosive when he's on, and he's made big plays, but he's also had plenty of killer dropped passes, which top receivers in the NFL just don't commit.
He fancies himself a top receiver, but he's really nothing more than very good!
A healthy Nicks is ten times better than Cruz, and I think the Giants are acknowledging as much by making the injured Nicks contract a bigger priority than that of the healthy Cruz.
I miss those wonderful days where we would have 6 threads going at the same time on the same topic. I could deal with that.
This new fancy shmancy policy of combining threads is far too confusing to my old, tired brain.
I am officially lodging a protest!!!

I agree that we can't spend 10mil on Cruz. Look at our defense, even if we draft defense heavy we still have major holes that have to be filled immediately. Plus, we need an OT as well, two if Beatty is gone and we could use a replacement for Boothe. We can not fill all of these holes through the draft. Someone posted a link awhile back that I'm trying to find, it had the offense mirroring the defense and showed how much money each player made by position and also ranked the spending from 1-32 to compare to the rest of the league. IIRC our spending was 8th on offense and in the mid 20s on defense.
