    What Cruz is saying about the offense

    Cruz has been reprogrammed. With the hiring McAdoo comes a different philosophy. And as the Giants install the new scheme this offseason, Victor Cruz explained the differences through the eyes of a wide receiver. “As far as my route-running was concerned as a slot position [in the past seasons], a lot of my routes were determined against what the secondary was doing, what type of coverage they were in, and that would dictate my route,” Cruz said.

    Now?

    “As far as this offense in concerned, it’s lot more of just ‘your route is your route’ and you can dictate that off the coverage and you know what you have and Eli can find you within those different holes. Now it’s a lot less dependent on what my body language is and Eli reading that. It’s more so him reading the coverage and finding me in those open holes.”

    lol just a subtle jab.

    But yeah, it's pretty obvious that the offense seemed to always worry about what the defense was going to do instead of dictating what THEY wanted to do.

    sounds like Cruz is describing an NFL offense - good to see we are finally going towards that

    The option routes work… just every player doesn't need to run it and every play doesn't need to have it incorporated.
