Antonio Cromartie has packed up the UHaul, picked up the kids, has the pretty wife in the front seat and is planning to move to Revis Island permanently.
You have to give Cromartie credit, with Revis aka Teddy Pendergrass Jr holding out and hurt for most of the year, Cromartie has stepped up and handle covering the #1 corner duties.
Also knowing in the back of his mind he is playing for his next contract, he has handle the pressure fairly well, to the point he believes the Jets have two #1 corners and it appears that Rex Ryan agrees with him. Here are the details:
Thanks to Antonio Cromartie’s Pro Bowl-caliber production through the first six games, the Jets may opt to rotate Darrelle Revis and Cromartie on opposing No. 1 receivers for the remainder of the season.
“I anticipate that,” Cromartie told the Daily News. “We feel we have the best cornerback tandem in the league. Both of us are basically No. 1 corners.”
Rex Ryan suggested that the Jets “can be flexible now” and “do whatever we want” with their pair of elite cornerbacks. Sometimes, that will mean leaving Revis and Cromartie on particular sides of the formation. Sometimes, it’ll mean having them take turns covering the top receiving threat to keep each other fresh.
If Revis is truly healthy and has stopped reading his press clippings he and Cromartie can start getting their Michael Haynes and Lester Hayes on (no curl).
The Jets defense is based off pressure and if the corners can hold up 1 on 1, that makes them a very dangerous defense going forward.
Now go get a G****** snack.
