Victor Cruz may not have played for the Giants, or any other team in 2017, but he still kept a close eye on his former club.
The Pro Bowl wide receiver and member of the Super Bowl XLVI champions, Cruz believes that a rash of injuries is was largely to blame for the Giants 3-13 season.
"The first thing that comes to mind is injuries," he said. "When you have that many injuries at all your skill positions, all your spots, it's kind of hard to put gameplans together and hard to win and be successful. That's a tough thing to go through for any organization ... And then there were some decision-making things that obviously we weren't all in agreement with, that left us scratching our heads a little bit, in terms of the benching of Eli (Manning) and things like that."
