Cruz supposedly spotted at Eagle Creek Airport per JMV

Recommended Posts

We dont need another slot WR. We have Hilton! This would be a mistake in my opinion giving up a 1st rounder when that could be used on a pass rusher to replace Mathis or a big WR like Keenan Allen round 1.

There's no proof though. I can say I just spotted him in Charlotte.

He's never been a #1 WR though. And his size limits him to be one at only 5-11 200 pounds or so.

That's why I put "supposedly" in the thread title...

Cruz makes sense from Irsay's twitter posts, but not as an actual member of the Colts. I would rather keep the 1st rd. pick and see what we can get. Cruz IMO is an above average receiver, but that's about it. He's average sized with average speed, I don't see the appeal, especially for our 1st rder..

Really? SIZE means nothing. Marvin was barely 5'10 at a buck-80 and was our #1 for YEARS.

And I swear I saw Will Smith working at Target the other day.

Really comparing Marvin to Cruz? 

 

Not even in the same league.

JMV was responding to another tweet, and he asked for proof of Cruz's presence. I'm not buying it.

*cough* Marvin Harrison *cough*

Marvin's ability to catch the ball is uncanny though. There is a reason Marvin was taken in the 1st round of the draft and Cruz was undrafted. Not that Cruz is a bad player, but he doesnt have the talent Marvin did in his prime.

Cruz is a game changer and would immediately impact our offense. He can play in the slot or outside. That said, I don’t know if any of these rumors have any validity. I do know he will cost a lot of money whether it is coming from the Colts, Giants, or any other team’s checkbook.

 

I can understand why a fan would not want the Colts to spend the money, but I can also understand why the Colts should. I believe Cruz would be a huge asset to the Colts offense. Giant’s fans do not want to lose him, because they know how talented he is.

I get it, but what Marvin lacked in size he made up with insane ability.

 

Cruz doesn't.

So pretty much nothing to see here then?

 

Yep, I'm going to guarantee this isn't true.

Draft position means nothing. See Arians Foster as opposed to Cadillac Williams for example.

Ok, can someone tell me what/where Eagle Creek is?

It's a small private airport very close to the Colts' West 56th Street complex.

Um #2 WR *cough* and WRs move around all the time. Why would you want the smallest guy taking the biggest hits at slot?

Route running.. Cruz's route running is good, not Marvin good, and I'm not sure there is ANYONE in the league with Marvin's route running ability, but you don't have a 1500 yard season without decent ability. Besides, as long as Reggie is here he will hold that #1 until he's gone.

Regardless all of this is speculation anyways...
