If we have any interest in Nicks...

Is anyone honestly turning their nose up at Nicks in our current situation? (for the right price)

of course, and it's pretty much the same people that blame everyone but Cam because we havent given him enough weapons.

Lets hope Dave can get him to come for less or somehow structure his contract to the point he has to put up big numbers to earn all that deniro.

we are in cap trouble only the next two years, if that. so it could be feasible that a contract is slightly more back loaded to work with the current situation.

Jesus christ man, is this all you can do?

 

Blowing $50 million dollars on one WR isn't going to help our offensive line. Do I really have to spell it out for you?

That was a very compelling and sound argument on why we should not address our o line but spend $50 million on one receiver.

what the hell is your problem?  why are you so mad at life?  and why is it you can only make your weak arguments by taking other peoples words to the far extreme?  iv'e pointed out in other threads problems from wr's, olinemen, rb's and yes, our own untouchable QB.

You typed up a silly statement, and I offered my opinion of it. If you want to take things personal, that's up to you.

But it's valid to ask why you'd give up a draft pick for him when you can likely get him without giving up anything next offseason?

Are his potential contributions this season worth what the Giants might want in return?

 

True, you could get him in the offseason without giving up any picks - but then you're bidding for his services on the open market. If you trade for him now, you have a big head start on working out a deal with him and in the meantime you get him all settled in and used to the comforts of working in his hometown.

 

Another benefit of acquiring him now is that it gives you an opportunity to get a feel for him and how he fits before you write a big check. 

 

In our situation, I think his potential contributions could be season altering. How many drops did we have in the Cardinals game? 

 

So far this season Olsen and Smitty are tied for the 11th most dropped passes in the league and if LaFell was targeted as frequently I'm sure he'd be right up there with them. At this point a sure-handed WR would do wonders for our offensive production. It's not the only problem we have, but it's one of the more glaring problems. 

 

I love Smitty, we all do... but he's at an age where one morning he'll wake up and he won't have it anymore. We need to develop a real sense of urgency about addressing this position and the stars seemed to have aligned for us to acquire Nicks. I personally think it's time for a bold move.

How high a pick are you thinking he's worth?

(full disclosure: you'd have a tough time talking me into anything in the first three rounds at this point)

If the Giants were willing to give a discount price to an old friend, what do you think it would be?
