The New York Giants have made it clear they weren’t happy with the officiating in their 24-21 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, with wide receiver Victor Cruz leading the charge. Cruz, who was held to two catches, 26 yards and a fumble that was returned 50 yards for a touchdown in the loss, suggested afterward that cornerback Orlando Scandrick could’ve been called for defensive holding on every play.
“He always holds on every play,” Cruz said, per the Newark Star-Ledger. “It’s always borderline whether it was pass interference or holding or whatever. I just don’t think about that and understand that he is going to do that and play through.”
At first take it sounds a lot like sour grapes, but Cruz went on to say that Scandrick’s physical brand of play was no excuse for his uncharacteristically quiet day on Sunday.
“You just have to understand what you’re coming into and what type of player he is,” Cruz said. “You watch him on the field, he grabs and holds on everyone. You just have to be able to battle through it and get yourself open.”
