PLAYERS: Victor Cruz
TEAMS: New York Giants
Giants receiver Victor Cruz has had one of the best break out seasons this year, and in doing so he is bound to teach others a few things along the way. One of those pearls of wisdom he is passing along is how to salsa dance, and last night he was able to teach MSG reporter Jill Martin how to salsa. Well done, sir.

Cruz's rise to stardom not without bumps

Victor Cruz grew up just 15 minutes from MetLife Stadium. But his journey to NFL stardom with the Giants took much longer. Straying from football and quitting could have been an easy way out for the Paterson, N.J., native. But it's been Cruz's resolve that's helped him rise to the top of the league this season. "It's his ability to bounce back," said Benjie...

Cruz leads Giants to NFC East crown

For the Cowboys, the season ended as it began: with a mistake-filled loss at what still is (and as of Sunday, quite justifiably) known as Giants Stadium. For the Giants, however, it ended with an answer to a question that framed the 2011 campaign: Was Eli Manning really an elite quarterback? Manning declared himself as much in August. Then again, he's not a forceful orator...

Giants Victor Cruz Shows Knicks Crowd His Salsa Moves

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has been wowing fans with his game breaking catches and touchdown celebrations all season long.  Cruz's salsa steps done to a Latin beat have become the hit of MetLife Stadium. On Monday night, Cruz was court side at The New York Knicks-Toronto Raptors game at Madison Square Garden and showed New York what all the excitement is all...

Giants in Cruz control as they salsa into playoffs

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — He didn't have the credentials of the other wide receivers on his New York Giants team or any of the long list of credentials that the much ballyhooed targets on their crosstown rivals, the Jets, could boast of. But second year wide receiver Victor Cruz is now the toast of New York and Giants fans are liking it spicy hot, especially after a 31-14 win...

High-flyin' Hynoski and Air Bear mock Bradshaw's ups

Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks were the Giants’ leading receivers in Sunday’s win over the Cowboys. No surprise there. But the third may shock you: Fullback Herny Hynoski.

Giants Clinch Playoffs With 31-14 Win Over Cowboys: What Did We Learn?

With the NFC East crown on the line, the New York Giants took control early and put a lethargic Cowboys team in a 21-0 halftime hole.  The Dallas Cowboys made it interesting in the 3rd quarter when Laurent Robinson caught his second touchdown pass to bring the score to 21-14, but Eli Manning and Victor Cruz were too much for a weak Dallas secondary.  The Giants took advantage of...

The Giants Are Your NFC East Champions

Anyone who thinks superheroes don't exist in real life hasn't seen Victor Cruz play this season. For the second straight week, a sputtering Giants offense looked to Cruz for a huge play that swung the momentum of a game and led them to a victory they had to have to keep their playoff dreams alive. And, for the second straight week, Cruz delivered the play and the win to Big...

Monday Morning Quotebook; Hail to the Victor(s)!

While the other team that occupies this stadium was doing a lot of backstabbing, the Giants were in a backslapping mood last night after dumping Jerry Jones’ Cowboys and taking the NFC East championship. Some quotes for your perusal…. “With my cleats on. That’s how I like to look at it, so yeah.” - WR Victor Cruz when asked if he was really 6’1″ Tom Coughlin on Cruz…...

New York puts it on Cruz to East title, playoff berth

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Victor Cruz and Eli Manning have the New York Giants dancing to the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Manning threw three touchdown passes, including a 74-yarder to Cruz early, and the Giants (9-7) won an all-or-nothing game to claim the final spot in the NFL playoffs, beating the Dallas Cowboys, 31-14, at MetLife Stadium.

The Salsa Music That Played After Victor Cruz's Touchdown Sunday Was Entirely Planned By NBC

The NFL looks down upon premeditated celebrations, but it seems that restriction doesn't apply to the No Fun League's broadcast partners. Despite NBC's Bob Costas gasbagging about celebrations earlier this season, the Peacock Network elected to enhance Victor Cruz's celebration with a bit of Latin music after scoring the first touchdown of Sunday's Giants-Cowboys...

The Top 3 ‘New Era’ Touchdown Celebrations: Cam Newton’s Superman, Victor Cruz’s Salsa, and Aaron Rodgers’ Championship Belt

Being in the NFL gives football players a chance to do something that they cannot do anywhere else in their lives, and I’m not just talking about getting to play in front of tens of thousands of people for millions of dollars. No, there is something greater than that. They get to (creatively) celebrate a touchdown. Image credit: Holy Scwhartz The touchdown celebration began with...

giants lead NFC East showdown 7-0

Eli Manning hooked up with rising star receiver Victor Cruz for a 76-yard touchdown Sunday night, giving the New York Giants a 7-0 lead after one quarter of their NFC East showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Redskins Need A Playmaker Wide Receiver As Much As The Need A Quarterback

Like me, perhaps you shook your head when New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz tacked 67 yards to a seven yard catch for a 74-yard score in Last Sunday's showdown against the Dallas Cowboys. The play is a reminder that quarterbacks attempt passes. Receivers must complete them. How do the Giants find players like Cruz while the Washington Redskins seem flummoxed by the whole...
