Excerpt: "On Thursday night during an NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) Network interview, Atlanta Falcons (http://www.giants101.com/tag/atlanta-falcons/) wide receiver Roddy White (http://www.giants101.com/tag/roddy-white/) took aim at New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) wide receiver Victor Cruz (http://www.giants101.com/tag/victor-cruz/) for the second time this year. When asked who was the best duo in the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/), he named himself and teammate Julio Jones. But in taking it a step further, he questioned what Cruz brings to the table (http://www.giants101.com/2012/09/28/atlanta-falcons-roddy-white-on-new-york-giants-victor-cruz-big-boys-play-on-the-outside/) by saying "Victor Cruz (http://www.giants101.com/tag/victor-cruz/) is much more of a slot receiver. The big boys play on the outside."

When asked about the comments on Friday, Cruz shrugged them off and gave an answer that should end any debate about whether or not he's a "big boy."
"I couldn't care less about what anybody else has to say," Cruz told the Star-Ledger (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/09/falcons_roddy_white_takes_a_ja.html#incart_flyout_ sports). "I got a ring back at home. I don't care about whatRoddy White (http://www.giants101.com/tag/roddy-white/) has to say." Read more...

Cruz with a nice response. Shove it in their faces. Julio jones is a good receiver but when he goes off saying dumb **** about another player, shows him off as a moron.Cruz can be any WR he wants to be, but he gets those YAC and that's what makes me the happiest. It's about moving the chains constantly, not going for the deep ball all day.

i havent seen the video yet but usually when roddy white is on nfl network hes making jokes and acting silly. i wouldnt be surprised if he said it in a joking way even if he was serious. i doubt hes really taking a shot at cruz but ill look for it. can someone post a link or something?

IIRC, in the playoffs, the Falcons defense put up more points than Roddy White and Julio Jones.

Next!

"Victor Cruz (http://boards.giants.com/player/victorcruz/2507855/profile) is a lot more of a slot receiver; the big boys play on the outside," White said. Cruz's response: Kiss the ring, trick (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/09/falcons_roddy_white_takes_a_ja.html).

I replied Cruz's words yesterday answering a post yesterday mentioning he hasn't prove anything during all his years playing the game. Only numbers and stats, no results on big games or playoffs.

"KISS THE RING....TRICK!!!" Love it. Not much Roddy can respond back with.

Roddy just sounds stupid. While Cruz is a great slot receiver and makes a litany of plays from that position, he has clearly shown the ability to play on the outside as well.

Did they not see how after we destroyed them we went on to best Gb, sf and pats? They are the kings of great regular seasons and flopping in playoffs.. Lol

2011 yards/reception
Cruz 18.7
White 13.0

2011 yards after catch
Cruz 7.3
White 3.6

Don't outside receivers usually have a higher yards/rec and yards after catch than slot receivers? Who is the real big boy Roddy?

Playoff wins
Cruz 4
White 0

Not to mention Roddy "I led the NFL in dropped passes last year" White will be 31 in November and Cruz is only 25. Who would you rather have?

Atleast they didn't laugh when Irvin mentioned Cruz and Nicks. They were literally loling it up when he brought up Miles and Bryant.

Seems to me they just paid the Giant's dynamic duo of Nicks and Cruz a huge compliment, they are the standard for which everyone else measures themselves. Add in a healthy Hixon and Barden and they can really cause some hate and discontent!
