PLAYERS: Victor Cruz
TEAMS: New York Giants
Of all the players we’ve seen at the Super Bowl so far, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz seems the most grateful to be here. He’s not trying to hide what a magical run this has been for him personally. He said he has to talk to a lot of teammates just to keep him sane.…

Giants nearly waived Cruz in 2010

The dynamic New York Giants wide receiver was on the bubble a couple of times and was nearly let go by the team at the end of training camp in 2010.

Victor Cruz came close to getting cut in 2010

Victor Cruz turned in several of the biggest plays of this Giants season, but he almost wound up on the waiver wire before his run with the team got started. Cruz was in a fight for one of the final roster spots as cutdown day approached at the end of the 2010 preseason. The team…

Victor Cruz Guarantees Giants Win

I post this only as an example of how silly all of this is. In the NY Post, which boasts this back cover today: Steve Serby says that the Giants will make Brady pay for planning Patriots victory party. What did Brady actually say? “We’re going down there, and we’re going down there for one reason. We’re going to give it our best and hopefully we’ll have a lot more people...

Victor Cruz a Jet? It almost came to be

Without Victor Cruz, the Giants might not be in the Super Bowl. And if not for some unknown personnel folks, the team's leading wide receiver would be with another team right now -- maybe even the Jets.

Rex Ryan May Have Helped Giants’ Decision to Keep Victor Cruz

Say what you will about Rex Ryan talking too much. Everyone knows Rex has the biggest mouth of any coach in the NFL, but that’s his style.  Some say it works and makes players want to win for him.  Others say it makes him look stupid and can lead to mayhem in the locker room.  One thing that has never been discussed, however, is if Ryan’s openness can affect personnel decisions...

'Sticky' gloves have grip on receivers

If the Super Bowl comes down to a key catch by Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots, say, or Victor Cruz of the Giants, they'll have more than merely their hands to thank.

Super Bowl 46 Pick, Prediction: Giant Win for Patriots?

After 20 weeks of highs and lows the 2011-12 NFL season comes to an end on Sunday with Super Bowl XLVI.   The 9-7 New York Giants are again the underdogs as they take on the 13-3 New England Patriots in a championship rematch from the 2007 season.  Will Tom Brady win his fourth Super Bowl or will Eli Manning silence his critics once and for all?  Who will win?  Who will lose...

Who needs Stickum in the NFL when you've got 'sticky' gloves?

Mario gunning 4 score

INDIANAPOLIS — Hakeem Nicks is the most accomplished of Giants receivers. Victor Cruz has been the breakout star this season. But it is Mario Manningham who is on the cusp of history. If Manningham scores a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday vs. the Patriots, he will become just the...

A challenge is in the air

The Giants receiving corps has developed into a formidable one as the season has gone on, particularly in the postseason. Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, and Mario Manningham are a varied and talented trio who have risen to the occasion for quarterback Eli Manning.

Super Bowl XLVI: Can the Patriots Stop Manning?

The funny thing about this statement is it is not a new one, but this time it’s about Eli and not Peyton. This is the same Manning that beat the Patriots in the latest upset of the century in Super Bowl XLII 17-14.
