As we inch closer and closer to the start of NFL training camps, excitement surrounding the New York Giants' new-look offense continues to build. Throughout the offseason training program, players have raved about its potential and the sort of freedom it allows. But wide receiver Victor Cruz took that a step further recently, saying that once the team has the new offense down pat, it has the potential to be "something special."
"I think we're right at the midway point," Cruz told Giants.com. "I think we're at a point where everything is in and we're just getting acclimated, we're learning the offense and we're getting comfortable with it now. And I think going into training camp that's going to be our goal — getting comfortable with the offense so we can be full-throttle come Week 1.
"It's going to be high-octane. I think it will be characterized as something that is hard to beat because it will keep defenses off balance. Once we get this thing rolling and clicking, I think it has the chance to be something special."
Cruz is not the first to come out and suggest it will be a high-octane style of offense, as even head coach Tom Coughlin has alluded to things being sped up quite a bit. And while it may not be the no-huddle offense so many have been calling for in recent years, it would appear as if it will come much closer to that than the slower, methodical offense Kevin Gilbride had run previously.
With training camp only a few short weeks away, fans will soon get a glimpse of exactly what the players have been praising all offseason.
