Hallelueh.....Amen....and Adios Muchacho
Not one man does a team make......I would LOVE to see how many yards he gets with someone other than Eli....not saying he isn't talented....it is obvious he is.....but come on.....enough is enough....he thinks he's welker and nicks rolled into one.
I miss Red Hook
I love Victor Cruz!! But, that said, I don't know of any slot reciever that has that kind of a contract! Let's remember that Cruz is a monster in the slot when he has a good #1 Nicks, and a good #2 Randle, but, also, he was less than terrific when he was the #1 guy when Nicks went down! Again, a great slot but not big or fast enough to handle the double coverage that a #1 gets!!!! I think the $7M per year offer was fair, maybe a little better than fair. Lets wait and see what team will come forward with the outrageous bucks? I think none.
Hard to argue that when he had better numbers then Mike Wallace and Dwayne Bowe for the last 2 seasons...who are we to say he is not worth the same as they are and he is a Pro Bowl Receiver, I don't think Wallace or Bowe made the Pro Bowl last season
So I don't blame Cruz for asking just as much as them!
That being said...no damn way we should give him that amount of money, I am high on Rueben Randle, I was a big fan of his at LSU and I absolutely loved that pick when the Giants selected him in last years draft, I think he could step in for Cruz and do just as well and at a much cheaper salary...I say focus on re-signing Nicks and maybe draft another young receiver to be prepared to move on without Cruz in 2014
The giants are insane if they pay 10-11m a year to any receiver with Eli playing QB. I am pretty sure Mara and Tisch are quite sane so this is never going to happen.
