A Cosmic karma year, Indy and the Jesters finding new ways to suffer. Pats at home in Peyton's place, and what will become of the beloved number 18? Jet fans, no place to hide at home, and hey, we want 18, half a superstar is better than that guy we have. Meanwhile, back to business as usual for the wicked pissahs. Raven payback, potential second payback about some game or another from the past. Super Bowl, 5 times for BB and B. Things are good. ************** All the gabbing comes back to bite Rex, as even upper giant management gets into the trash talk. That is, trash talking about someone who talked too much. They seem to have not picked up on the script. Victor Cruz came close to getting cut in 2010 | ProFootballTalk According to Mara, Giants fans have Rex Ryan to thank for Cruz making it through the final cut. Cruz scored three touchdown passes to spice up an otherwise unmemorable preseason game between the Giants and Jets in the summer of 2010 and Ryan raved about him after the game. The voluble Jets coach went so far as to say he hoped the Giants cut him so that the Jets could pick him up. That helped the Giants make the decision to keep him because they felt sure that Cruz wouldnât clear waivers and make it to their practice squad.
