Victor Cruz doesn’t want Super Bowl run to end

Victor Cruz AP

Of all the players we’ve seen at the Super Bowl so far, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz seems the most grateful to be here. He’s not trying to hide what a magical run this has been for him personally.

He said he has to talk to a lot of teammates just to keep him sane.

“Just being here, seeing all of this is just amazing,” Cruz said. “Never in a million years did I think I’d play in the Super Bowl. It’s just been an amazing experience.”

Cruz even looked for guidance on the little things.

“My biggest thing, I didn’t know how to dress throughout the day. Did we have to wear a suit the whole time we’re here? Thank God we don’t,” Cruz said. “Just seeing all the pictures and banners around the hotel. I’ve already taken like 50 pictures. I want to soak it in. I don’t want it to end, but I know it has to at the end of this week.”

Cruz’s individual story this year is almost too good to be true. From Combine reject to Super Bowl star.

He appreciates every second of it. That makes him one of the most likable players here in Indianapolis.

    What a great kid….so glad he’s a Giant.

    It’s really hard to dislike this guy. I listened to his interview on WEEI back in week 9 or whatever it was when the Giants visited NE. He was great to listen to…very articulate and quite the sharp guy. He represents himself very well.

    Except for Sunday…I’ll be rooting for the guy.

    Jesus…i sound like Jon Gruden. Wish there was an edit button.

    Don’t be satisfied with just getting there. You’ve got to win it, Victor. Go Giants!

    Good. Have fun, and then get over it. You have a football game to play.

  7. spartan31fan says: Jan 31, 2012 9:07 AM

    Stay humble victor. After football it will be your character that defines you.

  8. riverhorsey says: Jan 31, 2012 9:11 AM

    Don’t want it to end? Play 18 games next year.

    As a guy raised in Massachusetts, it makes me happy to see a player from the Zoo do so well at this level. As a Pats fan, I hope he has an off day Sunday….or at least is the only one on the G-men’s offense that has a good one.

    Sounds like nerves will get to this guy

  11. annes22 says: Jan 31, 2012 9:23 AM

    Good for him, makes a change to have such a good attitude, and appreciate what’s happened to him.
    Good luck and enjoy the week, because it may not happen again.

  12. ironworker329 says: Jan 31, 2012 9:24 AM

    Just relax kid! This could be start of something big. Get your head in the game celebrate the season when it’s over. Got one more to Go Blue!

  13. nickmiller63 says: Jan 31, 2012 9:25 AM

    He’s not a Super Bowl star, yet.

  14. richwizl says: Jan 31, 2012 9:35 AM

    Good player, good guy; he’ll be difficult to neutralize.

  15. uscatjerseyshore says: Jan 31, 2012 9:36 AM

    Since Cruz is one of the primary reasons the Giants are at the Superbowl it’s refreshing to see he has not yet acquired the arrogant attitude that exists elsewhere on the team or self-proclaimed that he is an elite wide receiver

  16. jpb12 says: Jan 31, 2012 9:38 AM

    And he guaranteed they were ‘coming back with a W’ at a pep rally before leaving for NYC.

  17. woohoothing says: Jan 31, 2012 9:41 AM

    Phenomenal kid and one heck of football player.

  18. 49erstim says: Jan 31, 2012 9:42 AM

    Like I’ve said before. Good Cat. Genuinely appreciative of his opportunity and boy is he talented. While I dont have a rooting interest in this game I will be rooting for Mr Cruz.

  19. zaggs says: Jan 31, 2012 9:43 AM

    Doesn’t matter if the kid gets excited, Eli will calm him down.

  20. buschleaguebandit says: Jan 31, 2012 9:46 AM

    Cruz will be Salsa dancing Sunday!!

  21. carpediaz says: Jan 31, 2012 9:54 AM

    I take great pride in being Hispanic and seeing someone of Latin decent reach such heights. He’s a great role model for Hispanic kids to look up to.

    The Patriots live off completely taking away a component of an opponent’s offense. I hope it’s not this kid. He’s too fun to watch.

  23. nflofficeadmin says: Jan 31, 2012 10:06 AM

    it’s Vic Cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuz!!

  24. yevrag3535 says: Jan 31, 2012 10:15 AM

    Wekk it will after Sunday, idiot. Win or lose. Lis’s a moron.

    Good,

    We WANT him distracted all week, and unable to focus on Sunday.

    Hey Cruz, you’re a great player. Just remember, it’s just another game. Mentally keep it simple in your thinking. Please!!!!!!!

  27. n2thaizzo says: Jan 31, 2012 10:47 AM

    UMASS STAND UP! Unfortunately for Victor though, I can’t root for him to win… #TeamPATRIOTS!

  28. klunge says: Jan 31, 2012 10:50 AM

    Prediction time: 130yds/1td for Cruz this weekend.

  29. MichaelEdits says: Jan 31, 2012 11:06 AM

    No matter who wins this thing, I do want to see Victor Cruz dance a salsa in the end zone.

  30. ranoversquarells says: Jan 31, 2012 11:06 AM

    Needless to say, Victor has replaced Marcell Shipp as the best player that’s come out of Zoo-Mass

  31. cliverush says: Jan 31, 2012 11:38 AM

    The players from the small schools prove they can play with the big boys. It is fun to see so many of these guys on both teams who love the game and enjoy themselves. Both coaches want guys like them and not a loafer such as Fat Albert.

  32. bspurloc says: Jan 31, 2012 11:39 AM

    ,
    is it Sunday yet!!!!!!
    Can’t wait to see which giant WR has 3td’s…

  33. richwizl says: Jan 31, 2012 12:52 PM

    Greg Landry was from UMass and went on to be QB for the Lions for a few years. Maybe Cruz will surpass him but, not yet.

    Even if they try and shut down Cruz, how are they going to account for Nicks and Manningham?

    Do blow all week, you’ll be crazy and loose come Sunday. (Worked for 1970s Steelers, Dolphins, LT)
