    Been trying to think of who Victor Cruz reminds me of - I got it...

    Terry Glenn...he doesn't look like him but he has similar stature and he broke out just like he did in his first (real) season and made highlight reel catches throughout his career. Not sure how Glenn is off the field but his freakish play was outstanding! I hope Cruz can at least be like Glenn throughout his career as a Giant.

    I emphasize "as a Giant"

    um no. terry glenn wishes he had a season like cruz had. terry glenn reminds me of brandon stokely. victor cruz reminds me of a young jerry rice. i said it. ability to run crisp routes, take short passes the distance, and make amazing catches.

    i know i could get reemed for that statement, but this years play from cruz honestly reminds me of a season rice would have.

    Not even remotely.

    Terry Glenn was a little prima donna first round draft pick that had to get brow beat by Parcels into actually performing near his talent level (Parcels ridiculing TG throughout his career was fairly comedic).

    Cruz was an undrafted FA, who has so far performed better then TG ever has.

    Cruz reminds me more of Rod Smith.

Rice didn't crack 50 catches nor 1,000 yds in his rookie season. Rice is 6'2" and lanky Cruz is 6' and Glenn is 5'11" and both had good, solid frames. Rice broke out in his second year as did Cruz but Cruz never played a regular-season snap in his rookie season...so this could be viewed as that though, unofficially!

    Well - at first I thought the Jerry Rice comparison was a little over the top. So I tried to refresh my memory by looking at Jerry Rice highlights.

    Astonishingly, to me, VC looks more elusive than Rice. I'm not sure what it is exactly. Rice had blazing speed and would run a good route then just flat out beat defenders with speed.

    But Cruz possibly isnt as blazing fast, but the array of jukes and other moves we've seen him display this year just are - dare I say it - more entertaining than RIce's moves.

    Like that pass where he caught the ball then sorta leaped between 2 Jets (was that the 99 yard TD?) that was so amazing. Or that juke move early against the Eagles where he made like a weird salsa hip juke and sent Nnamdi crashing into another Eagles DB.

    Guy is UNREAL. Really hoping for this guy to become the next great Giant. Hope he stays with us and stays healthy!

    If you're going to compare him to anyone you have to go w Steve Smith from the Panthers. Small dude that plays big!!

    Sorry my ESP must be off ... I didn't understand what you didn't post. :P

    And my point was the Cruz looks to be better than Terry Glenn.
