The New York Giants are in a heap of trouble, especially if they have aspirations for a playoff berth.

The team is 0-3 and was routed by the Carolina Panthers 38-0 on Sunday.

Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks seemed to be frustrated with his lack of production throughout the game.  He did not catch a pass and was only targeted once, well after the game was out of hand.

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

Hicks said he is doing everything he can to get open. He has nine catches for 197 yards and no touchdowns through the team’s first three games.

“As I’m running routes, I can’t see what’s going on with the line,” he said. “I’ve just got to look at the film to see that, so we’ll know tomorrow.”

Maybe Nicks has been taking online classes at the T.O. School of Diva Receivers?

@CGGymDog I never understood this.  A WR needs to have the ball thrown to him in order to catch the ball and contribute for the team.  If you don't see any passes you feel like you aren't important to the team.  Why does make them divas?

@btcvsolo because that whole state is surrounded by drama, lol they cant live without it, Eli needs to step up and have a one on one with his brother who's leading the NFL in just about everything haha, maybe that would help him open his eyes and see who he's throwing to. and as for the jets...well their just the jets, self explanatory

@btcvsolo drama is the whole reason so many tune in to watch and pay attention to football ... without it, the league would wither
