Reese says Giants got lucky

INDIANAPOLIS–New York Giants General Manager Jerry Reese introduced a unique philosophy for success: “We got lucky.”

When you’re the personnel boss of the reigning Super Bowl champions, you can spin it any way you want. There is no other way to describe the Giants’ acquisition of wide receiver Victor Cruz, an undrafted rookie in 2010 that became a star in 2011.

“If he wasn’t local, we wouldn’t have brought him in. We got lucky. That’s the beauty of scouting. It’s not a perfect science. We try to get more right than wrong. We had him rated as everybody else did, free agent,” Reese told reporters at the scouting combine.
