    Exactly, it's like people are doubting him because he's a slot receiver, comparing him to Clayton from the Cowboys when he was a deep threat in the slot.

    It's interesting that he can put up those numbers and people still question his talent. Life's a *****.

    It's sad because Giants fans weren't like this before Eli Manning was drafted. I hate to say it, but there's either a lot of band wagon fans who don't remember when our only WR was Chris Calloway, or the years where Tiki Barber was our only offensive threat.

    It's as if Giants fans have tasted victory, and get into that Yankees mentality where every year we will win it. I mean don't get me wrong, I want us to win it every year, obviously, but don't act like we're the Steinbrenner of the NFL and can just easily replace someone.

    Remember, back in the day, it was all about DEFENSE and the running game here.

    I miss watching Hampton carry defenders until the whistle was blown.

    I don't think there is any doubt as to how talented Victor Cruz is, the guy is a great WR. I think the big knock that folks have are the key drops this past season as well as the short arming for a number of games after the hit by Ryan Clarke which we lucked out with a penalty on because it was a legal hit. Granted, he is a slot reciever and takes more hits but when the discussion is about top tier money, short arming it and dropping game changing passes on more than one or two occassions is not going to cut it. We always harp on Hakeem Nicks playing hurt and how the coaches should let him heal, which I think they should but the guy is very physical and he doesn't short arm it. Hakeem is our #1 and that is where the top tier money is going to go, IMO.

    I hope we keep Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks.

    I love NY Yankees and I have had "debates" with other NY Yankees fans when they claim "our season was a disaster because we didn't win the World Series" and other such comments. Just like I am with NY Giants, as long as NY Yankees are competitive and we make the playoffs or are in the hunt at the end of the regular season, I am happy; winning it all is just gravy.

    When you talk about Homer Jones, Bob Tucker and Fran, I'll know you've been around a while.
