I've read through most of this thread, and I think everyone brings up very valid points that I agree with "both sides". However, this question asked to Cruz was clearly trying to set him up to give a controversial answer or stir the pot. My personal opinion is I wish he would've just given a simple "I am happy to be a New York Giant" but what he said wasn't bad...just poorly worded I think. Maybe Eli can give him some lessons in answering the media.

I haven't read any posts,I'm too late to this party so forgive me if this has already been said but uhhhhh he definitely took the hometown discount and is absolutely underpaid. NYG got him at a steal. I don't think that's a surprise to anyone. He probably shouldn't say what he did and I'm hoping this doesn't turn out to Osi Part II. End of the day he took a $10 million dollar discount and will make that up with endorsements by being in a big market and by being happy being close to home and not living in Kansas City. That would suck.
I think the contract was more than fair. He's being paid Top 20 money now. Is he a Top 20 player????.....maybe, but there are a ton of great players in the league.
"They come to the line of scrimmage and the first thing they do is start looking for me....I know, and they know. When they’d find me they’d start screaming: 56 left ! 56 left!....So there’s this thing I did. After the play was over I’d come up behind them and whisper: don’t worry where I am. I’ll tell you when I get there."

anyone know how to this clown he went from a fan favorite to just a body that we hope catches the ball and scores as he is paid to do?
Oh god enough! He made an irrational statement on twitter. The guy is a football player give it a break. I'm sick of people acting like the guy is a politician or something of that status. Yeah, he has influence and people that look up to him, but at the end of the day, thats on them. He gets paid to catch a ball and score points at the end of the day. Nothing more nothing less. Have you never said something out of anger that you never meant and regretted? Oh, yeah you have becuase your human we all do it.
