Victor Cruz has yet to catch a pass in the New York Giants' first two preseason games. In fact, the Giants' leading receiver the past two seasons has yet to even be targeted by quarterback Eli Manning. Cause for alarm as the Giants continue learning a new offense under first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo? Not for Cruz.
"It's only a matter of time before we get the full thing rolling and the passing attack gets going," Cruz told reporters on Monday.
Cruz said the Giants have not shown their full arsenal yet.
"You're seeing very little of it right now. The full gamut isn't in, we're not throwing everything out there right now. It's still a long process of getting our footing up under us," Cruz said. "We're building every day. We're putting more and more in, we're getting more comfortable on the practice field. It's only a matter of time before you see everything come to fruition."
Cruz said he "would love a few catches" in the preseason, but that it really isn't important. "I'm a team guy. As long as we're winning, as long as I'm doing all the little things right, as long as I'm continuing to listen to the offense, to listen to the calls and make sure I'm getting everything clearly and making the right reads and making the right plays that's all I'm worried about," Cruz said.
"A couple catches on top of that wouldn't hurt."
