Giants Victor Cruz Frustration Starting To Build

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz spoke to the media Monday afternoon about the Chicago Bears and the building frustrations of an 0-5 start.

Q: How hard is it to put yesterdays loss away and go right into a short week against Chicago?

A: Its difficult for the stretch that it is. Its one day that we had to talk about it and move on, but thats exactly what we had to do is move on. Luckily, its a short week so we can put this game behind us pretty quickly and get ready for Chicago.

Q: How has Elis demeanor been today?

A: He seemed pretty good to me. He just seemed his usual self, just getting after it and understanding what weve got in our game plan and executing as far as our practice was concerned. He seemed like himself. He didnt seem stressed. He didnt seem anything out of the ordinary.

Q: Do you feel he takes too large of the share of the blame for a 0-5 team?

A: I think thats naturally how he is. Hes so proud of the way he plays and wants to play great each and every week and when things go the opposite way The type of person he is, he takes a lot of that blame. But thats not the way it is. Its everyone. Its the receivers. Its the offensive line. Its everyone thats to blame for some of these losses and some of the things that have happened out there, but its a full team effort. Its not just one guy. You cant just put the blame on one person.

Q: How frustrating has it been to be in these games even though they have ended up lopsided games?

A: Its a little frustrating knowing that all of these games, all we had to do is finish strong and finish the way people are used to us finishing, and thats winning the fourth quarter and dominating time of possession and things of that nature, and were not doing that. Its pretty frustrating, but we understand that one of these games have to turn for us. One of these games has to be the one where we minimize our turnovers and minimize our penalties and are able to break through and get to the other side and win a ballgame.
