New York Giants’ Victor Cruz Hauls in a Pass … Thrown from a Plane

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has hauled in 60 passes for 743 yards and seven touchdowns this season, and as impressive as some of them have been, none were quite like the one he caught outside of MetLife Stadium … which happened to be thrown from a plane.

The video, which appears to be real and has not been debunked, is part of a promotional effort aimed at getting Cruz voted to the 2012-2013 Pro Bowl. So if you haven't already voted, you may want to do that.

Despite the impressive nature of the video, overly critical fans will be quick to point out that, going into week 12, Cruz leads all NFL wide receivers in drops this season with eight, and is only behind New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (9) for the league lead.

    So Cruz can catch passes from an airplane without an issue, but can’t do the same when coming from Eli’s “tired” arm? Got it.

    Undrafted. Makes insane game changing plays. Drops some balls.

    I’d take him every time.

      agreed! Has anyone ever been a better bargain for a team? Undrafted superstar that averages about $500,000 a year for two of the best seasons ever seen by a NYG WR?

    Just hope Cruz and Nicks are close to full strength for the remainder of the season. That is a requirement if the Giants are to do anything good down the streach.

    New flash … Keith Rivers injured in fall from plane.

      Hey, Rivers is practicing and that could be BIG. We need him since Williams is going to be out and we need that speed at the corners.

        Don’t know if you saw my post from a few nights ago, but isn’t Rivers the new Gerris Wilkinson? Shows All Pro flashes but can’t stay on the field. And it’s not hard luck injuries like a broken bone or tore up knee, it’s conditioning injuries. Pulled Muscle after pulled muscle. Obviously Rivers had a better pedigree coming out of school as a top 10 pick, but he very well may be too soft to play in the NFL.

          Didn’t see it but I think kujo beat you to it in pronouncing Rivers my new Wilkenson. You both might be right: lots of talent but inability to stay on the field. But I will wait to pass judgment on that. I really like Rivers and think he can be a huge help down the stretch. When healthy he is the best linebacker on the team and quite likely one of the best in the NFL. But since he got ruined by that blind side block by Hines Ward he really hasn’t been able to string together a full season or anything close.

          We need either he or Williams (who has had a very disappointing season and certainly hasn’t proved he’s at all durable either) available to deal with some of the matchups we’re going to see along the way.

    Happy belated Thanksgiving. Last night was looking over the schedule with my brother. Probably 9-7 takes the div, although 10 wins would be nice.

    GB: Not a must win, but a must play well. I can settle for a hard fought loss like last year.

    WASH: Must Win

    SAINTS: You know what guys, Drew Brees is the most overrated player in the NFL. Oh wait, I have no clue what I’m talking about. I’ll predict a win for us the day Eli/TC actually manage to beat Drew Brees. P.S. Ship the MVP to Brees if the Saints make the playoffs. P.P.S. New Fantasy Football rule, if you have a chance to draft Brees, do it. I believe God created him specifically to make owning a fantasy team more enjoyable. And he created Darren McFadden to do the exact opposite.

    ATL: Earlier this season I was thinking we should lose this game and then get revenge in round 2 of the playoffs, but after our pants against the Steelers and Bengals we need this one. Most overrated 9-1 team ever?

    Bal: Don’t know if they’re good or bad. Certainly, they are a lot better at home. Need this game if we lose to ATL

    PHI: Never want to have a must win to make the playoffs against Philly. They look like they’ve quit, but could they get up for a season finale to knock us out of the playoffs. I can see it now, 8-7 Giants coming into a game against a dead Philly team. No one thinks Philly has a chance, and then………….S.h#.t! We better make the playoffs this year.

      I see the giants winning the division at 10-6. Have no idea which 2 they lose and which 4 they win. With this team no scenario would surprise me more than any other.. I’m pretty sure the Eagles are donezo which makes them look lke a win, but I never feel good about needing to beat that team to get in

  7.  James Stoll says:

    10-6 is a division lock; 9-7 could win it. With the bengals steelers and saints in succession, sandwiched between eagles/skins, you have to like the cowboys to finish no better than 8-8.
    The skins have us, Baltimore, Philly, Cleveland and Dallas
    If we beat them then Baltimore should be able to send them to 8-8.
    But if they beat us, then 9-7 may be the worst they can finish.
    We need only 3 wins if we pull it off the right way: beat Washington Philly and 1 of GB, Atlanta, NO.
    On the wild card side 9-7 likely gets the last spot
    Again we need to win the right games, which would mean NO and 2 of Washington/Philly/GB/Atlanta
    The Baltimore game has become all but a throwaway unless wemwin out and are playing for seeding

    Frankly, until we see how the Giants play on Sunday I don’t know how anyone can project their record. There are no more rests, no more time to gather themselves. Just the weekly grind with a lot at stake from here on in until the season ends (with the possible exceptions of the Ravens game and the Eagles game). So we need to see that they have come together and are playing, and coaching, smart football that gives them the best chance to win every week, and to see whether that toughness of mind and purpose that brought them together in December of last season shows itself again.

    I think we all know that the “magic number” for wins is now either 9 or 10. But given that every team they play will be playing for something when they play them, and that with the exception of the Eagles they are all really good teams, getting 3-4 wins is hardly a given. The Giants are going to have to earn their way in (even if over the next month it turns out they could have backed their way in after all), and frankly, I love that. Even a terrific team can lose a single-elimination game. So you can be very good, and not get out of your first playoff game. But to need 3-4 wins over 6 weeks of play against tough opponents and to go and get them proves you belong in those playoffs and will be ready to compete. I cannot wait to see how this plays out.
