“[After talking with McAdoo] I’m truly a fan of the offense that he’s gonna put in,” Cruz said via NorthJersey.com. “He wants kinda up-tempo offense, which I’m excited about, obviously, [spreading] footballs around to the receivers, all around the field. He’s an even keel guy that’s just ready to work and do some good things, and get to know his players, his personnel and put us in the right spot to succeed.
“So I’m excited for it and working for him as well.”
Cruz says everyone on offense will be like rookies again.
“I think it’s going to be completely different,” Cruz said. “It’s gonna be new terminology. I think it’s gonna be different plays. I think it’s gonna be a whole new philosophy. So I’m excited to get my hands around that playbook and really learn this thing inside and out. I do imagine it’s gonna be brand new for us, so it’s gonna be just like we’re rookies coming in, getting the playbook and getting right to it.
“It gives everyone a clean slate. We have to pick up this offense and make it happen, make it the best in the league. I think it’s definitely a wakeup call for us and a challenge we’re ready for.”
