Again, we have AJ Green split out wide to the right, with Cromartie on him. Look at the cushion yet again! Why is Cro giving him so much room? It is tough to explain. They needed to get physical with this guy, and they just didn’t, and it killed them.

Green is again going to take it straight up the field on Cromartie. Let’s move ahead.

Green is running a deep route, moving to Antonio Cromartie’s inside shoulder. Kyle Wilson, in the second circle, is acting in a safety role, coming over to help Cro deep. Does it help?

Nope. Green blows by both Cromartie and Wilson, as if they are standing still. It almost becomes an easy pitch and catch for Dalton and Green.

Good thing for the Jets that the pass was underthrown, otherwise it would have been a touchdown. In this case, the Bengals had to “settle” for another 53 yard pickup and first and goal.

Does anyone else feel that in the past, Antonio Cromartie would have had better success against this guy? I know that I do. I am convinced that Cro is hurt, and being tough by staying in the game, because he wants to be a leader. That is the type of guy he is.

But something isn’t right. This is not the Cro we have gotten used to.
