Life is a gamble, but most of the information we have available to us would indicate Cruz wants to be here long term and changed agents to make that happen.

    Nothing is ever guaranteed, but why don't we just wait to see what actually happens.
    Crus hasnt said anything its the media that keeps talking about it

While I wish he he would have retired this past year and allow the giants to hire a new coach i accept and embrace him as our starting coach 2013 season, especially since in my opinion last year giants could have made it to the superbowl and won but the only explanation in my opinion is getting lazy. A recent 2 time wining team is filled with UN-hungry team mates (on 1 and two wins) slacking off. Im hoping, since my long term giant experience was a roller coaster of playoffs and season upsets i welcome the recent success.

    My main RANT... while i dont fault cruz for trying to get paid - I think he is gambling big time. Burress was removed form us after a humen error and hoped to return with major success. Had he returned to Eli he would have seen the promis land. He didn't.... Steve Smith wanted to get paid - no hard feelings - Eagles paid and the contract soared like an eagle. After his injury we wont see (which we did whitness for a period) his post Eli potential which was non existant with the great reborn VIck...... Im upset the Giants didnt hold Ballard and hope beckum will return. The Giants receiving core will be the best worst core in the league as will the running back setup...... It can go either way. Im frustrated Hixon may leave and while im confident cruz is a play on more funds which is respected receivers (which eli respecnts and understnads for great catch/throw stories to continue he needs to throw an aggressive ball into agressive coverage to a top level corner - long story short - all GIANTS top catches - past five years - while many will kick eli when down - whose stats are better? Which receivers fell off post eli pay day? I agree eli needs receivers but question the understanding of how receivers need to utilize eli! Shockey sucked post giants whining.... Steve smith sucked post giants whinning...... Cruz.....?
    **sigh** if only I had listened to my guidence counselor and taken Gibberish instead of Spanish in highschool. I run into Gibberish FAR more often.

    Yeah should have kept Ballard.....guy hasnt seen the field since his knee injury and was just an OK TE anyway....no loss
    You are complaining about 2 SBs in 5 seasons??
    You have no idea what the run or pass game will be like at this point.
    You are frustrated and didnt even mention OL or DL???? Or anything about defense at all.....

    Is that where we are on this board? Pledge allegiance to Eli before commenting. The poster shared some good insights mixed in with a lot of dribble. I agree I saw a lack of fire in the belly last year. After 2 SBs in 5 years we are gluttons with a disillusioned view of what it means to be truly hungry. Though I must admit I enjoy the sloth of success and don't want to go back to being happy with a winning season like a commoner. I enjoy eating from the King's plate. We must find a way to stay disciplined in spite of our success.
