Just wanted to say that I love Victor Cruz. Not sure what it is. Maybe ist his upbringing. Maybe its everything he's had to overcome in his life to be where he is.
Not only is he a great playmaker for our beloved team, but to me he represents everything a New York Giant should be. His reaction and involvement to the families in Newtown is just another example.

We can all criticize him on the field when he doesn't play his best....that's part of pro sports and being dedicated fans. But I'm proud to have the kid on our team.

Just wanted to say this.

He's one of my favorite players, and he's such a great guy.
If you haven't seen it already, you should see his E60 story on YouTube. It's amazing.

What he did was great, I was starting to get down on him because it seems like he had been more focused on "branding" himself then he actually was focusing on football.

But this was a great gesture by him.

Wait until the contract negotiations start to heat up.
He'll still be the same guy but he'll be getting a lot less love on this MB.

Hopefully a Giant for life - I'm as sure about it as I was for Steve Smith

Another thing I like about Cruz is that he said he would never use a hold out as a method to get a better contract.

Well I started this thread many years ago. I'm glad to say that 5 years later it's as true as it was then.
Victor Cruz has been a great Giant and deserves all the love and accolades we can give him. He has always conducted himself with professionalism and grace.

You are a great Giant Mr. Cruz.

Good dude, great player and a nice UDFA story.

Even this year when he wasn't at his best most of the catches he did make were big plays, yard wise or situation wise. I don't think he is done, hope I don't have to watch him play against us next year.

He underperformed this year because he couldn't come back completely from a horrible injury. Not his fault. It certainly wasn't from a lack of commitment.
It took him almost two years to get back on the field.

His daughter goes to the same bi-lingual school/same grade as my niece. He was a very involved parent - at every event, every conference, ask tough questions about the direction of the school, etc. In an era where athletes have 20 kids and are fairly irresponsible, it was very refreshing to hear.

How many times has victor referred to "his brand" in his career. He was a nice story and a fab favorite but he was kind of lame.

This should be stricken from the record. This is a respect thread, respect that's well deserved by Victor Cruz. Who cares about branding, in case you missed it a large portion of pro athletes care about their brand.

You're right but his act wore a little thin with me. Just saying.

When players like Cruz get cut it depresses me.

It's like somebody you know just died.

Pro football is a cruel game.

Cruz will sign with another team and play.

I hope he saved his money.

Terrific football player and, in a lot of ways, an even better story.

Thanks for this post!! My last great memory of Cruz will always be the 99 YAC against the Jets. That game was the one that set up the SB run and PO birth in 2011.
