Giants’ Hakeem Nicks: ‘I can’t throw it to myself’


With the Giants 0-3 and very much alive in the Clowney sweepstakes, it will be very interesting to see if the players and coaches turn on each other in the coming weeks. After being targeted just one time yesterday (which was a throw away) WR Hakeem Nicks was careful with his words but to a small shot:

“It’s part of the game,” he said via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger. “You’ve got to control what you can control. I can’t throw it to myself.”

This is not shocking to me at all. Nicks is in the last year of his deal and just saw Victor Cruz get paid. In order for a WR to get his money, he needs to get the ball. Expect more sniping like this all season long if the Giants continue to lose.
