Cromartie to Brady: Target me, big boy

CromartiePosted by Josh Katzowitz

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is a big fan of the spoken word. No matter what happens in the game -- like, when, he gets beaten for a couple of touchdowns -- Cromartie doesn’t seem to lose confidence in his abilities.

You might recall last January when Cromartie, for whatever reason, called Tom Brady an “ass----“ and when asked why he would say something so harsh, he responded, “That's what I think about him. I don't really give a damn about him. I don't have to play against him. I play against the receivers."

Well, apparently, the Jets win against the Patriots in last year’s playoffs has emboldened Cromartie even more and somehow given him even more confidence. Which is why he painted a big ol’ bullseye on his back this week in preparation for the Jets-Pats showdown this Sunday and invited Brady to throw passes at him.

"I hope I'm a target this game," Cromartie said, via the Associated Press. "I want to be a target every game.”

Well, of course, Brady is going to target Cromartie. I mean, it’s not like Brady is going to seek out a meeting with Darrelle Revis. But still, now that he’s had some time to think about his Brady statements from last season, he probably feels contrite about calling Brady a jerk-face. Right?

“I’ll never change how I feel about Tom Brady and what I said last year,” said Cromartie. “Do I respect him? Yes. He has three football rings. But other than that, when we’re on the football field, I don’t really give a damn.”

Yet, it’s not like Cromartie has been wonderfully consistent this season. He allowed two touchdowns in Week 1 but then snagged two interceptions in Week 2 vs. the Jaguars. He’s one of the best No. 2 cornerbacks around, but when he gets beaten by a receiver, he really gets beaten.

But you know what? Maybe, he is in Brady’s head. The Patriots quarterback shut down his weekly news conference after only five minutes because people kept asking about Cromartie and the comments he made.

“I don’t really care what he says,” Brady said before leaving.

But Brady probably does care. And it’s like your boy Bill Shakespeare wrote all those years ago, "The Brady doth protest too much, methinks."

The Pasts get a referee bailout once again!




Argyle you are one funny ass tard. You cannot even admit when your team gets beat. It was a good game and the refs were average both ways. I understand you are not yet man enough to admit this so I will just continue to be amused by your utter lack of intelligence and common sense. One quick thing, you call them the Pasts? Try something original. Not cheatriots, been done many times over. Think of something new please.

As expected it was pretty tight most of the game and I must say I was a bit surprised at the way the Pats rans the ball in the 4th quarter they just shoved it down the Jets throats. Defense looked better at some points and bad again at others but seeing that it is still a work in progress it could be worse. I do think Cromartie will think he actually made the play on the pick rather than being given a gift but it really doesnt matter, hell common sense enters his thought process probably only slightly more than argyle. Oh well good game and good results, now they need to keep it up.

Cromartie is a frontrunner in every sense of the word.  He is to football what Lamar Odem is to basketball.  When their team is up they are making plays, but once you get them in a situation they are not comfortable in, they choke, and fold like pussies.
If the Patriots O-Line can hold up against the Jets D-Line (especially limit the damage on blitzes), then the Patriots will win by double digits and Cromartie will cough up a TD or two. But, if the Jets get constant pressure on Brady, don't be surprised if the Jets pull one out of their asses.

Guess I have to watch and see.

Go Pats




Yep you got it right. This game (like most) is going to be won or lost in the trenches. Brady gets protection and the Pats should win. The Jets get the pressure and it could go either way. I know I just made a big pot of corn chowder and it is a nice grey,cold,rainy day here. Perfect for chowder and football. I look forward to a great game.


GO PATS!!!!!!!
