Mikey G. has a pretty good practice report from this morning which outlines the eminent Victor Cruz' contributions. Also, it's worth noting that Tom Coughlin doesn't seem very interested in promoting the Jets' appearance this year on HBO's Hard Knocks. He's going to handle Monday's preseason opener the same way he'd handle any other preseason opener, by playing his starters a series or two and then using the rest of the game to evaluate the younger players.
In retrospect, as common sense as it is to have the Jets and Giants open the new stadium together the first week of the preseason, both teams will miss something by not having their matchup on the traditional third week, which is really the dress-rehearsal game for the season. There was always that little extra emotion out there, especially with the starters going past halftime, that helped in the final prep.
