Sunday’s game between the New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons will feature some of the best receivers in the NFL. Back in September, Roddy White made the argument that he and Julio Jones are a better receiving duo than Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz. White downplayed Cruz’s abilities by labeling him a slot receiver and claiming that the “big boys play on the outside.” Unsurprisingly, Cruz disagreed with White’s assessment and reminded the Falcons star that he has a Super Bowl ring sitting at home. Earlier this week, Nicks echoed his teammate’s remarks. “Numbers don’t lie, or Super Bowl rings don’t lie, neither,” Nicks said according to the Star-Ledger. “So when you get (into) that battle about who’s the best, I think you just let your play on the field talk for you. You ain’t got to be talking with your mouth.” Nicks and Cruz have combined for 126 catches, 1,656 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Jones and White have been slightly more productive with 140 catches, 2,137 yards and 12 scores. From a talent standpoint, this one is pretty much too close to call. I would personally prefer White and Jones to Nicks and Cruz simply because Nicks has such an extensive history of injuries. He has yet to play a full 16-game season in his four-year career and Tom Coughlin admitted that he will likely never be 100% healthy this season. Aside from that, the Giants win this argument. White can argue that he and Jones are the best pair of receivers in the history of the game if he wants, but none of that matters until you win a Super Bowl.
