For me, because it's the clearest in my mind, it's got to be this one - although the NY Jets one is a close second.

Jets 99 yards hands down but yes this one is my close 2nd. The one he caught in double coverage for a TD at the Eagles in 2011 is up there as well.

The Jets one might be the best Cruz TD. , or the sick catch in Seattle. Or was that Nicks? Totally forgot.

I loved his first one vs. the Eagles 2011. The two defenders bump into each other like keystone kops.

The Seattle one is up there for sure and yes it was Cruz who made that catch.

The birth of The Salsa against the Eagles, in their stadium.

And the catch against their golden boy Nnamdi

Basically, any TD catch against the Eagles. :-)

My top 3 so far in no order.

vs Jets Week 16 2011.
vs Cowboys Week 17 2011.
vs Redskins Week 7 2012.

All were great TD's.

Easily the 99 yard TD. It changed that game and that was a much win game. Plus, even though it tied a record, don't know if anyone else's looked so good. That was all Cruz. The move he made was amazing.

+1. Jets 99 yards. Hands down.

Giants punched the Jets right in the face on Christmas Eve and were like an unstoppable locomotive after that on their way to winning SB 46.

I'm going to go against the grain here and say Week 17 vs Dallas of the 2011 season.

I truly believe this TD set the pace and momentum for that game for us to win the NFC East and eventually go on to win another Lombardi. Plus I was at the game and it was awesome to see in person.

Nobody in the NFL has had more 70+ yd TDS in the last two seasons than Victor Cruz (6).

I love them all!!!!! but... One of my personal favorites is the 99 yard TD against the Jets, because Revis was running his mouth earlier in the week saying he doesn't know who cruz is, and when cruz went to the sideline after the TD he scream HE KNOW MY NAME NOW DOESN'T HE!!!!!! AHAHA and also before that game the jets covered up all the giants super bowl stuff in the stadium.

This thread kinda reminds us the importance of Cruz signing today. You can argue how he's only a slot guy this, #2 that, got the dropsies last year, not as important as Nicks, etc etc. When it comes down to it, in his brief career with the Giants he has made some of the biggest, most memorable plays in NYG history. He is our most explosive player and has already helped us in a big way to winning 1 title, let's hope he can help us win some more.

I was just about to post this video. I like this one more than the one vs. the Jets because it was against a div. rival and that was a win or go home game.

Then again the jets game was almost as important because if we don't win that game then the game vs. Dallas means nothing. And that TD was such a momentum changer.

I was at the skins and cowboys games for those TD's so they are special to me but I don't think either one can top the 99 yard TD against the Jets

Yea has to be the jets catch as we had to have that game just to make playoffs and that play catapulted us to victory and the following week vs Dallas he had the other one

As far as going back and enjoying a highlight, I'm partial to this one below. He just makes the Eagles look dumb which is something I very much enjoy seeing.

I see it as a steady progression of events that led to people unfairly labeling him a diva:

1. Befriending Jay-Z and throwing up the Roc symbol after TDs (OMG JAY-Z IS A RAPPER)
2. Doing Chunky Soup commercials (I saw fans on here knocking him for focusing on commercials instead of football as ridiculous as it sounds)
3. Signing with Roc Nation Sports
4. Asking for a hefty contract as a "meager slot receiver" /red.
5. Not showing up for OTAs (which was a smart business move on his part).
6. Rumors of a reality show (even though Cruz officially stated this as false).

There is nothing wrong with anything Cruz has done IMO. I think some fans wanted him to maintain this humble and non-flashy persona (Nicks is more the quiet type) in which we were introduced to even though he became a superstar in the NFL. Befriending Jay-Z doesn't exactly scream quiet.

Anyways, I think Cruz is definitely grateful for what he has, I think he will work hard, and I am not worried about him getting off track.

I loved that one. If I recall correctly, that was early in the season when everyone in Philly was still in the honeymoon phase with Namdi. He made him look like a joke on that one.

That was pre-Salsa, too.

Yeah, everyone loved Nnamdi at that point.

his break out game vs. the Eagles catch over Nnamdi.

a close second is the SB just because of the magnitude of the game

I know there are more meaningful touchdowns like the 99 yarder against the Jets that ignited our Super Bowl run, but my favorite is the 6 yard TD against the 49ers where he slips 2 defenders and snatches an Eli heater right out of the air. It was a great catch and had the added benefit of sticking it to Carlos Rodgers after he was running his mouth about the salsa...

mine would be the first 2 of his career @ Philly. That one he broke the tackles and then juked two eagle defenders into hitting each other...classic. then the 2nd one he showed that heart he has..

giantsfan420
07-10-2013, 02:08 AM
that vid made by the vikings guy is prob the best highlight clip i ever seen. its all clips of unique angles that arent the same angles we all saw live.

and, another TD i want to add for honorable mention, iirc it was either vs Browns or TB. It was a multple TD game for him @ home. He ran this unique like flats route from the slot. it was a very different looking type flat route. he kinda shake n baked off the LOS towards a slant, and then broke it on a slant towards the sideline. the reason its honorable mention is because even tho the play was like goal line to go, like 2 yrds or something, he got like 10 yards of seperation lol. amazing route running. and it wasnt this elaborate post concept or something, it was a route in the flats. he just is so elusive off the LOS, that he often puts defenders in spots where they are 2 or 3 moves behind and theyre playing catchup while he's catchin the ball. lol someone could make that into a clever play on words i bet.
