    What are you talking about? The money he is asking for would put any team in a jam with the salary cap. Who's throwing to him? They have to pay a good QB too you know. If he wants that money then they need to move on. Do like other good organizations do. Let players walk, draft well, and sign FA's that are not done yet and don't cost much.

    WE don't know what he's asking for. That's a fact. The media wants us to believe they know. But, again, whatever he's asking for is not the issue. What he will eventually accept is the issue and we're not there yet. They have been paying a good QB for years now and have managed pretty well. The CAP space after 2013 is not as restrictive as it is now because a lot of players are going to hit FA (drop off) and Reese has signed a lot of players to one year deals this FA so far.

    All of this angst has come about because of media hype and speculation. I trust Reese to do what's right for the team. iI that means a long term deal for Cruz, it does and if not, so be it. Cruz isn't going anywhere in 2013 it seems. So why not let Reese, who everyone says won't over pay, earn his paycheck and then, if you don't like the result, complain. Nothing has happened yet to justify all of this hatred.

    Who's hating? Just saying IF that's what he wants they need to let him walk. He has every right to go make money, but the Giants should not give him that much money. It's a team sport and they already have a very high priced QB.

    If the Giants "overpay him" whose fault is that? If you don't see the hatred, you're not reading along.

I absolutely believe that he has earned a much bigger contract than what he's been playing for in recent years. However, it doesn't mean I want the Giants to play sucker to him and his agents as they bury themselves into cap hell in the forseeable future. Let some other team pay him if those are the numbers he's demanding. The Giants have far more pressing issues, with Nicks' contract up next season, and JPP not long after.
    We won't sign him for $10m+/yr.

    Of course it would be their fault but this is a message board. Was just saying if that's what he wants they should let him go. Hopefully they would cut ties at that point. Don't have to hope, they would because they can't afford that and don't think Reese would do it anyway.

    Do you think Cruz is talented?

    Nicks will be asking for more if he gets it.

    Nicks will be asking for more no matter what Cruz does.
