    GIANTS' HOT TOPIC: VICTOR CRUZ'S INCREDIBLE EMERGENCE

    GIANTS' HOT TOPIC: VICTOR CRUZ'S INCREDIBLE EMERGENCE

    "Victor Cruz had 82 catches, 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns in his first real
    season of meaningful action with the Giants. He now owns the team's all-time
    single-season receiving record for yards, and his year was often defined by huge
    plays -- catching a 99-yard touchdown, beating Nnamdi Asomugha for touchdowns,
    making juggling catches and plenty more.



    Oh, and his
    salsa dance has become known
    throughout the league and metropolitan area,
    and even got him an invite to "Dancing with the Stars."




    Whether it has been feature stories, columns or game-day stories, plenty has
    been written about him, as his success and emergence have been well-documented
    by The Star-Ledger.




    So now, we thought we'd go back in time to give you a sense of just how the
    second-year receiver from Paterson has evolved this season. Check out some of
    the articles written about him and then drop down to the comments
    section
    to talk about Cruz. What we want to know, Giants fans, besides your
    thoughts on Cruz, is if you can think of an undrafted, possible sparkle to
    record-setting star in such little time like Cruz has?

    We posed the question earlier, and we'll ask it again: Can you think of
    another player who has gone from undrafted, possible sparkle to record-setting
    star in such little time?
