Victor Cruz says criticism affected Hakeem Nicks in 2013

hakeem nicksGiants wide receiver Victor Cruz says that criticism from the fans and media last season took it’s toll on his former teammate,  Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

“I mean, anytime people say things like that and try to discuss your character, I think it takes a toll on anyone,” Cruz said. “I think it did for him, and I think it’s something where he wants to prove people wrong.

“Obviously he’s a competitor and he wants to play and be able to do all of those things at a high level, and you could just see certain times throughout the game it just didn’t look like he was himself.”

Now Nicks is playing on a one year contract in hopes of cashing in next offseason.
