    It's not crazy if Giants pick Nicks over Cruz

    This was from Feb 15th. After scanning the old and newer posts I didn't see one with this link.... "mods if so please feel free to merge or delete this thread. Thanks

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore

    Seems like the general consensus is that we can't afford to keep both

    Not with Eli making $20mil a year. I think Cruz is the way to go over Nicks by the way. Nicks is ALWAYS hurt. Cruz has been legit through 2 years. Also, Randle can fill Nicks spot easier then Cruz'

    When healthy Nicks is more important. Problem is he seems to be injured a lot. Cruz seems to be more durable and has had two nice seasons. Do you over pay a slot guy though? Maybe the Giants think that a healthy Nicks, Randle, and JJ will be fine.

    +1, I agree. I wouldn't break the bank for a slot receiver. I do feel that Cruz will be back with us next season, but I don't think he is going to get offered what he thinks he is worth by any team. He is a valuable piece, but I would take a healthy Nick over a healthy Cruz any day of the week.

    They also did mention how it didn't work out when they tried to play Cruz on the outside more. And how because of that they had to force an unready RR into service. This I guess was tried when they found no adequate replacement for MM
