To me, Cruz's 2012 was an absolute validation of his 2011 season. Expecting 1500 yards was unrealistic. But the fact that he had 1000 yards+ and 10 TD's was impressive.
OK...he's not perfect. But he's probably the best slot receiver we've ever had and a great playmaker.
So the notion that the 500 yard drop from 11 to 12, shows some indication that he's not the player we thought he was, is misguided.
Lifetime member of the "specific element" and proud of it.
