We've moved on. Great player, but he should as well. We need to see what Rudolph, King, and Egan can offer. They may not be the future. But Cruz certainly isn't.

Burned the bridge on the way out saying they deliberately sabotaged his career by not throwing to him

Learn the lesson here, youngins. Swallow your pride sometimes.
Ya know what?

Cruz coming back would have been a nice story and a reason to watch in an otherwise historically disasterous season. The New York Giants are the laughing stock of the NFL and at the very bottom of the entire league. Why not throw the fans a bone and sign a home town good guy who needs the job and provide a few reasons to cheer for Big Blue? This regime, from the ridiculously over esteemed owners right on down the line is a rotten bunch.
God bless, Victor, but it's not about you.

this quotation  
PaulBlakeTSU : 10/13/2017 8:55 am : link
rubbed me the wrong way.

Quote:
“Can I paint a picture for you?’’ Cruz said. “Can you imagine, if I get a phone call from the New York Giants and I go back out there wearing the number 80 in blue and I get in that end zone one more time? Do you understand? I can already hear the deafening screams from the crowd. Already, I can hear it.’’


I won't attribute too much to it, but it is rather self-serving. Instead of focusing on how lucky fans would be to worship him, it would have come off more graciously if he focused on how great it would have been for him to experience being a Giant one more time. Perhaps a response something along the lines of "Can you imagine, if I get a phone call from the New York Giants and I was able to come out of the tunnel wearing the number 80 in blue and got to hear 80,000 screaming Giants fans one more time?"

Beer Man : 10/13/2017 8:57 am : link
the last person to figure out that the game has passed them by. It was a great run by Cruz while it lasted, but injuries have taken their tool, and Cruz is just a shell of the player he once was. We saw the same when the team tried to bring Nicks back.
What deafening screams is he imagining,

The impatience on this board for some of the great Giants. Guess their not allowed to have their moments of when emotion gets the best of their tongue.

Luckily Eric has a lesser standard for those that post on this site, especially during game threads.
He burned his own bridges.

It's not turning on him to recognize he himself is why they can't or won't consider it.
DELUSIONAL

for someone that would appear somewhat intelligent, he's proven to be quite the opposite in the last 6 months time.

Not sure why this is a big deal.  
Brown Recluse : 10/13/2017 9:28 am : link
Firstly, sounds like he was answering some questions on a show. Its not as if he is standing outside of MetLife stadium on the ground, holding up a boombox to Jerry Reeses office window playing In Your Eyes.

Secondly, this guy experienced a sudden rush of fame. He came from nowhere. An afterthought signing who became a star. Its the kind of stuff you see in the movies. And it was over way before it should have been. Its going to take some time for him to come back down and realize he doesn't have it anymore. I feel bad for the guy and wish him nothing but the best.
Damn you Matt!!!!

it would be a great story  
mattlawson : 10/13/2017 10:22 am : link
if he did come back and break out those end zone moves.
He was cut by the Bears, who suck at WR in case you haven't noticed,  
PatersonPlank : 10/13/2017 10:37 am : link
and then wasn't even asked back when their top WR, White, went down for the season. What does that tell you?
Sorry Victor but Brandon Marshall has already replaced you

Mad Mike : 10/13/2017 11:59 am : link
we're going with at this point, but he's also certainly not going to be particularly good. Might as well take a flyer on someone and maybe get lucky that he turns out to have a future. Cruz' comments on the way out certainly didn't endear himself to the organization either.

if we weren't 0-5 and we suffered the same amount of losses like we did on sunday, i bet he would have been resigned. But because we are pretty much out of it. the team probably wants to see the younger guys instead. Glorified Pre-Season from here on out.

to see Victor get a shot at a blue jersey again. Never know how the guys we picked up are going to work out, or if any of them can stay healthy over the rest of the season? Vic knows the playbook, and I somehow doubt we've signed our last WR this season. hehe... ;)

Are you for real? He tried to suggest that the organization conspired to deprive him of his contractual incentives last season. That's a burned bridge. I was as big a Cruz fan as anyone, but he's done. And he made himself extra done with his comments on the way out the door - that's exactly the WRONG personality to add to a tenuous locker room.

No, he wouldn't. He burned that bridge.

At this point he definitely needs to be resigned. To not being re-signed.
