Cromartie to Brady: Throw it to me

By Marc A. Greenberg

It’s one thing to say that you don’t like New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, as Jets CB Antonio Cromartie did last year before the Jets playoff vicotry in Foxboro;  it’s another to challenge him.

On Thursday, Cromartie did just that, in daring Brady to throw to his side. “I hope I’m a target this game,” Cromartie said, per the Associated Press.  “I want to be a target every game.”

“Never backing down,” Cromartie said. “I’m not going to change how I feel about Tom Brady and what I said last year, but I respect him, yes. He’s a guy that has three Super Bowl rings, but other than that when we’re on the football field I don’t really give a damn.”

When asked if he wanted to respond, Brady declined.  “No, I don’t,” Brady said.

At that point, he ended his news conference at the podium.

“I really don’t care what he says,” Brady said. “Thanks, guys.”
