No, That Eagles Employee Wasn't Celebrating Victor Cruz's Injury

Up there is the front page of today's New York Daily News: a guy in an Eagles polo seemingly gloating over a crumpled, injured Victor Cruz on the ground. "PHILTHY," indeed. Of course, the photo captures only one frame. What do moving pictures show? » 10/13/14 3:16pm 10/13/14 3:16pm

Victor Cruz's Injury Made Everyone Sad

NFL teams are notoriously cautious about announcing injuries. No matter how obvious a sprain or a tear may seem, they'll wait for a scan to confirm. Not last night.

Dexter McCluster Returns Punt For Touchdown, Trolls Victor Cruz

After being brought down just shy of the first-down marker on a third-down play, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz had to watch Dexter McCluster house a punt on the very next play.

Victor Cruz Burns His Man Easily For A Touchdown

Outside of a wee bit of hand fighting, Dunta Robinson should have just not covered Victor Cruz. It would have produced the same result. Cruz flat out beat Robinson in a foot race and effortlessly scored a 69-yard touchdown. » 9/29/13 1:59pm 9/29/13 1:59pm

Even After Winning The Super Bowl, Victor Cruz Still Gets Mistaken For…

Despite what's suggested by ESPN's graphic, that's not Stanford forward Josh Huestis. It's actually New York Giants breakout star Victor Cruz, who took in last night's NIT semifinal at Madison Square Garden. This is not, sadly, an anomalous mistake.

Victor Cruz Has A Choice Seat At The Grammy Awards: Right Behind Adele…

We've no idea why he's there or how he scored a second-row seat, but Giants WR Victor Cruz will be disappointed to learn the Grammy Awards no longer present a Best Salsa Album award. (It was folded into the Latin Grammy Awards.) » 2/12/12 8:23pm 2/12/12 8:23pm

Ideally, they would have cut him and stashed him on the practice squad. It was a risk, given that any other team could have signed him, but the… » 2/01/12 12:35pm 2/01/12 12:35pm

The Salsa Music That Played After Victor Cruz's Touchdown Sunday Was…

The NFL looks down upon premeditated celebrations, but it seems that restriction doesn't apply to the No Fun League's broadcast partners.
