Hakeem Nicks has just come off a miraculous 2010 regular season campaign. How miraculous was it? Well, let's compare the stats of Amani Toomer, Plaxico Burress and Hakeem Nicks in their second season with the Giants:

2010: Nicks: 13 games; 79 receptions; 1,052 yards; 11 touchdowns

2006: Burress: 15 games; 63 receptions; 988 yards; 10 touchdowns

1997: Toomer: 16 games; 16 receptions; 263 yards; one touchdown

As you can see, Hakeem Nicks put up the best numbers in his sophomore year with the Giants, and the most incredible part is that he was dealing with injuries and missed three games. Amani Toomer and Plaxico Burress are thought of as the best two receivers in Giants history, but I believe that Hakeem Nicks will take that title by the end of his career. 

Actually, I believe he will challenge Michael Irvin and Art Monk as the best NFC East receivers of all time.
