Yahoo contributor Jonathan Wagner on Nicks.

136 posts in this topic

It's pretty clear Nicks tanked this season... overall it sounds like the guy didn't want to be a Giant anymore, there's no other explanation for how a guy goes from starting out his career like he did to what we saw this past season (even with the injury). 

 

I don't see any reason why we shouldn't bring in him for a look at a reasonable price. At his best he's much better than anything we've got besides Smitty and even at his worst he might still be better than most of what we've got. 

 

I saw this guy up close and in person at a place called Sports Connection down here in South Charlotte and I was shocked by how big he is. I've seen plenty of pro football players up close for comparative purposes and Nicks overall size and muscle density shocked me. I shook his hand and my above average sized hand was enveloped by his. The man is a physical specimen and if he can get his mind and body right he could be the guy we've been searching for ever since Moose left and more...

Giants are salty because Golden boy didn't get a fluke playoff run this year. Where was this talk week 8? Their loss regardless of where he lands...

at worst he replaces lafell as a number two. supplement that with a pass catcher from the draft and an improved offensive line and we're hot to trot

As long as the contract is right, I'd love him here.

it could be because he got tired of playing for coughlin. he wouldn't be the first.

He's worth the risk on a 1-2 year contract. Get him, resign Ginn, draft a WR and we should be okay.

 

 

Why can't LaFell just be good damn it.

i'd be hyped as fug. we'd have the cogs to repeat 2012's offensive performance if nicks did anything more than poo the bed and improve on 2013's defense... that's a deep playoff run.

Not going hard because the rest of the team around you is playing horribly as well doesn't sit well with me, but I understand other players mentally check out in that department as well.  But to skip treatments when people are already questioning your health from previous injuries just confounds me, screams I don't care as loud as possible.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
