Antonio Cromartie: "We Played OK"


Sometimes I wonder what planet the self proclaimed second best wide receiver, and best cornerback after Darrelle Revis, is on.

The defense was one of the many problems that the Jets have to fix, following the 34-0 blowout yesterday afternoon. They couldn’t tackle, and they didn’t spend too much time in Alex Smith’s face. It was embarrassing.

But, if you ask Antonio Cromartie, it wasn’t that bad. Take a look:

I thought we played ok. (It was) not to the Jets standards. I think the biggest thing for us is we just have to make sure when we make the tackle, we need to make the tackle. I think we had too many yards after contact especially in the first half. I think the biggest thing for us is we have to get back to the basics and do what we know (how) to do. Right now we’re sitting at 2-2 on the season and we have a big game coming up on Monday night.

Really Antonio? You played OK? Compared to what? You lost 34-0, there is no way on this planet to give that any type of an “OK” evaluation. Terrible would work. Awful would be an accurate description. Pathetic would be a good word.

But OK? Not so much. Come back to us Antonio.

    THis is the worst article i have ever read. Degrade cromartie for speaking his mind and honestly the truth. IF the defense wasnt on the field for over 70% of the game then maybe it would be a different story. This D played more than OK in my book. But when you have a QB that has no confidence, a coaching staff that doesnt know which way they want to go and really no depth at key positions, then you have a blowout and every positioin on the field is looked down upon. Even with a mediocre offense this jets team would be amazing. But no so much

    Cromartie is the only plus side to this game

    I dont think this article is bad at all. Cromartie is nutz if he thinks they played “OK”.
