New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was on Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio and indicated that players have taken advantage of the replacement officials this season.

Cruz is just confirming what we’ve all been witnessing this season.  There are defensive players and offensive players taking advantage of poor officiating by committing numerous blatant penalties because they know they’ll get away with most of them since the replacements don’t know all the rules.

It seems like to me things keep getting worse every week when it comes to how the replacement officials call each game.
