The Giants don’t need to beat just any opponent this Sunday, they need to beat the 11-2 Falcons. And they won’t face just any pair of receivers, they’ll face Roddy White and Julio Jones, who many consider the best tandem in the league. Nicks would make a different argument, for himself and Victor Cruz. “We’re going to always feel like we’re the best. We strive to be the best,” Nicks said. So there’s today’s debate: Who you taking? Roddy White and Julio Jones or Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz? Is the answer obvious or not so obvious. Hit the jump to see the tale of the tape and our pick…….. In Defense of Cruz and Nicks We will provide combined stats for 2011-2012: Victor Cruz: 29 Games Played, 2540 Yards, 18 Touchdowns Hakeem Nicks: 25 Games Played, 1844 Yards, 10 Touchdowns What you don’t see: Victor Cruz has made some of the most important plays for the Giants over the past two years. One of those years I might add they won a Super Bowl. Nicks has been hurt a lot this year and his stats are down. How do we consider health in this debate? Hit the next page to see the Falcons’ duo….
