  • Cruz is not a one year wonder....

    One thing I think is safe to say is that Cruz is not a one year wonder... not only had he been displaying his kind of talent prior to injuring himself during his rookie year, but the way he managed to make adjustments and improve himself during last season shows that he knows what he has to do, regardless of what defenses do to adjust. His physical talents and concentration on bringing in cacthes, his uncanny ability to control and adjust his body to pull in catches and make smart moves with the ball afterwards over and over again, proves to me that he can do exactly what he wants to do when out there on the field.

    I think the offense will make their own adjustments so his productivity may not exactly match what he did last season, for numerous other reason, in example... hopefully a much improved running game, which will take some of the pressure off him and Eli. To me, it seems those two guys bailed the offense out on 3rd down so many times it might have been a little too close for comfort. None the less, they have proved that they can get it done when needed.

    All in all... I look for Cruz to keep improving and making a name for himself. Hopefully he will stay healthy and by mid season, the Giants offer him a contract that reflects his value to the team's future.

    Not sure if it's safe to say this yet.

      the only thing that can slow him down would be the only thing that slowed him down his rookie year, an injury.

      I remember seeing Gilbride talk about him after the Jets preseason game his rookie year, and he was saying that they were trying to keep Victor a secret because they knew off the jump the guy had the talent, I was pissed off when they put him on IR because they were saving that spot for Hedge**** hoping he would be healthy enough to play later in the season, but he never played and they both ended up on IR, I think Cruz was healthy enough to play later in the season, but they placed him on IR a little too quickly if you ask me.

        I don't think he will have the same type of year he had last year, probably more like what we saw from him in the playoffs. That said he will have a solid year for us. How free he gets will relate to how well everyone else is playing, TEs, 3rd WR ... If Eli is hitting all of them it will be fun to watch!

          I do not doubt that Cruz has the talent, and he has the potential to be great. The only things standing in his way are injuries and distractions. I know I'm not the only one that has noted his whirlwind world tour, Oscar appearance, Book release and subsequent signings, etc. and wondered if this would translate poorly. If he keeps his head on straight and stays humble and healthy, the sky's the limit. If he gets it in his head that he's a Superstar, it could go bad. He seems like he'd be inclined to follow in Jerry Rice's footsteps rather than TO's...but there's always a doubt..

            Am I the only person getting tired of hearing this, everyone says it... Screw it, I'm gonna buck the system, I think Victor Cruz will have as good if not better season this year (Statistically).

              Agree. Especially because he has had lots and lots of distractions this off season. I want to see if he's prepared to play this year.

                I would have to agree with this assessment.

                  It's not safe to say that Cruz isn't a one year wonder, because as it stands, that's what he currently is.

                  Each new season presents a clean slate.

                      This is true. I hope it's somehow reflected in his Madden rating.

                        Well starting off with an unproven 3rd WR and Nicks starting out coming off an injury, Cruz will see tons of double coverage. If he is still able to put up huge numbers with those type odds then watch out..
                        Football has been very, very good to us.
                        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle

                        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                        4-New York Giants!!!
                        5-NE
                        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                          But let me say as season rolls on and that 3 rd WR gets comfortable and Nicks heals up, then this WR Corps including the TEs and the RBs out of backfield will be a deadly combo for defenses to try and stop

                            I don't think he is a one year wonder but I doubt he pulls the kind of stats he did last year. With him, Nicks, Bennett, whoever the third is and possibly a Wilson/Bradshaw combo it should come down as the ball is spread out a bit more. I also don't think alot of defenses are going to get torched for 400+ yards this season like they did last.

                              Yeah that's what I'm thinking. With the skill set Cruz has, I really don't think he's in danger of tailing off dramatically.
