Giants receiver Victor Cruz thinks he’s going to have a good time visiting Revis Island on Saturday.
Cruz said today that when the Giants play the Jets, he expects to get plenty of balls thrown his way, even if Darrelle Revis is covering him.
“Teams aren’t really scared [of Revis] anymore,” Cruz said, via the New York Daily News. “He’s got to earn his money this year. Teams aren’t really backing down. I feel like we’re going to do the same thing. We’re going to go out. Until he physically stops us we’re going to throw the ball on him.”
Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks was asked if Revis is the best cornerback in the NFL, and he paused before answering, “He’s decent.” Nicks apparently changed his mind later and called Revis “great,” but even then he said he thought his own matchup with Revis would be “even.”
So the Giants won’t hesitate to have Eli Manning air it out and throw it to whatever receiver Revis is covering. We’ll see Saturday if that’s a decision that comes back to haunt them.
