If that's your point, then you are wrong. You are correct that the Giants won't pay top dollar to sign Nicks if he has an injury plagued season but, contrary to your "point", that will increase the chance that Nicks leaves in free agency since there will be at least one team that will make the mistake of giving Nicks a deal based upon what his production would/should be if he is healthy.
However, where in any of that do you get that I think we should root for Nicks to have an injury plagued year? And to that end, you completely missed the point.
On the very same day in early 2014 when the Giants sign Eli to an extension, GmenNFCBeasts will be featured in the first story on the nightly news.
All of his neighbors will describe him as, "a quiet man who kept to himself"
