On Thursday night during an NFL Network interview, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White took aim at New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz for the second time this year. When asked who was the best duo in the NFL, he named himself and teammate Julio Jones. But in taking it a step further, he questioned what Cruz brings to the table by saying "Victor Cruz is much more of a slot receiver. The big boys play on the outside."
When asked about the comments on Friday, Cruz shrugged them off and gave an answer that should end any debate about whether or not he's a "big boy."
In the game of chess, that's called checkmate. So goodnight, Mr. White.
In addition to his record setting regular season, Cruz added 21 receptions for 269 yards and a touchdown in the playoffs. And on the world's biggest stage, in the most important game a football player could ever play in, Cruz hauled in four receptions for 25 yards and the teams only touchdown through the air. He did his salsa dance and when all was said and done, he held the Lombardi Trophy high as Roddy White and the rest of the Falcons watched from home.
Big boys come up big in big moments. Cruz has, White hasn't. And that's how this story ends.
