Congrats to Victor Cruz on Winning The Vizio TVP Award

January 28, 2012

NEW YORK – On behalf of the nygreporter, I would like to say Congrats to New York Giants WR Victor Cruz on winning the Top Value Performer Award given by Vizio and voted on by the fans. I am happy that I have followed his career from training camp back in 2010 in Albany. You knew you were looking at a good football player. He was catching everything thrown to him and had worked out during the lockout with QB Eli Manning in Hoboken. Which was nothing for Cruz who grew up in Paterson, so he is very familiar with Hudson County New Jersey. So Cruz hung out with Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and played catch on a high school field. Cruz is a star now in the New York and New Jersey areas. The well mannered and friendly ‘Salsa King’ is a good face for New York football and all of the local kids who hope to play for the Giants one day. Expect to see a lot more of him.

How about the job Giants GM Jerry Reese did with this young man? There are three players that need to get paid next year and they are WR Victor Cruz, DE Jason Pierre-Paul and DE Osi Umenyiora. I’m convinced Osi needs to finish his career with the Giants and be signed for a long term contract. The same goes for Victor Cruz who deserves a five year deal in my opinion. I would like to say good luck to Victor and the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. The fans are behind you guys hunting those rings. I’m all in!

The Super Bowl is now only 8 days away and the Pro Bowl is tomorrow 1/29/12 at 7:00 PM EST. Enjoy the game NFL fans!

What are your thoughts on Victor Cruz and the incredible season he continues to have?

The New York Giants Are Going to Win the Super Bowl!

January 26, 2012

NEW YORK – The New York Giants are going to beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl by the score of 38-27. This is my prediction. I think Tom Brady will throw at least 1 INT while Eli Manning is solid with 400 yards and 4 TD’s, O INT’s as he wins Super Bowl MVP for a second time. The Giants defense will hold and cause a few turnovers. I’m expecting two turnovers by the Patriots, that lead to 2 quick Giants TD’s. Victor Cruz should have at least 2 TD’s. I think Jake Ballard will also have a receiving TD. And I expect Super Mario Manningham to grab a SB TD! Hakeem Nicks will be double teamed the whole game. The Giants defense will sack Brady at least 3 times. JPP will have a very good game and play on another level to confirm why is was voted into the pro bowl. I would like to introduce the world to No.90 Jason Pierre-Paul for the Giants. Just in case you haven’t seen him play.

I like the fact that Eli will play in Indianapolis. This is the most intriguing part of the game to me. Tom Brady might be seeking revenge but Easy Eli is all about producing results on the field and owning the fourth quarter. I expect no less in this game from him. Winning this Super Bowl simply means that Eli Manning is officially standing right next to Derek Jeter in the all-time clutch player award in New York lore and New Jersey lore as well. The thing is, I believe that Manning really wants this game more then Tom Brady and there is nothing Belichick or Brady can do about it. Perry Fewell will need to call the game of his life but Manning is already in the discussion for greatest Giants QB of all time. The Giants will win the next Super Bowl ring on February 5th with all day coverage from @nygreporter on twitter up until game time. I’ll do my best at halftime lol and then do some post game coverage.

The New York Rangers are playing well this year but we need the Knicks to get it together. I now they will eventually. This is the best team in years for New York fans. It is great to be a New York fan in general right now and the Yankees coming up. It feels like there was just a small earthquake in New York, weird. I expect the Patriots to put up a good fight but the Giants simply have this teams number for some reason the past few years.

What are your final score predictions for the Super Bowl? Who will win the Super Bowl MVP award?

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz Has Elite Season

January 13, 2012

NEW YORK – Giants WR Victor Cruz came out of nowhere this season. His rise to fame and respect has not surprised me one bit though because I saw him working in training camp back in 2010. Fans got their first glimpse of the undrafted phenom that same year during a preseason game against the Jets, where he single handedly won the game for Big Blue with 145 yards and 3 TD’s. It must get quite annoying to constantly be asked “Where did you come from?” but Cruz won’t have to worry about being asked that question ever again after this season. Players and coaches know exactly who Victor Cruz is now and they will have the difficult task of trying to figure out how to stop him. Cruz will help the team if he is out there catching passes for 150 yards or forcing opposing defenses to double team him, leaving WR Hakeem Nicks or WR Mario Manningham open for the glory. Victor Cruz simply makes the Giants a better team any way you look at it and fans are hoping they pay him quickly before another Steve Smith situation arises. Do the right thing Big Blue!

Victor Cruz finished the 2011 regular season with 82 receptions for 1,536 yards and 9 TD’s. He was third in the league for total yards and finished first on the Giants in scoring. He also broke former Giants WR Amani Toomer’s record for single season reception yards. Not a bad second year if you ask me and let’s not forget he was injured (13 games, hamstring) most of his rookie season. He is now getting love from everyone in the league and the fans who watch the games. You can even vote for him to win the ‘Vizio Top Value Performer award for 2011’ by voting for him here Vote Now

Besides the tremendous season Vic has had on the field, Cruz has also become a fan favorite because he is a local product (Paterson, New Jersey) and understands how local people conduct themselves. He is polite, friendly and loves the game of football. He should be in Hawaii at the Pro Bowl this year and despite making a very modest salary, he hasn’t complained. That is just another trait that local blue collar workers love about this young man. But the same blue collar workers will be calling for Cruz to get a hefty raise because they know what he is worth. Not complaining and seeking a fair compensation are two different things around here. After all, he just had his first child (daughter Kennedy) with his longtime girlfriend and will need that money for diapers and girly things. I am a Victor Cruz fan and I’m glad he is a New York Giant!
