Earlier this season, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White claimed that Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is only a slot receiver and that he can’t play on the outside with the “big boys”. He also claimed that he and Julio Jones are the best receiver tandem in the league.
Cruz stated that he didn’t care about White’s comments because he now has a Super Bowl ring.
On Tuesday, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was asked about White’s comments from earlier in the season.
“We’re going to always feel like we’re the best. We strive to be the best,” Nicks said on Tuesday, via the Newark Star-Ledger.
“We (aren’t) going to get into that battle, that argument of who’s the best, who’s better, because that’s not what it’s about. It’s going out there and playing team ball, and who’s going to win.”
Nicks also brought up his Super Bowl ring.
“Numbers don’t lie, or Super Bowl rings don’t lie, neither,” said Nicks. “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.”
