Why the Cromartie fear? (1 Viewer)

Every week some sites get freaked out about whoever Cromartie is going to cover.

OK...I am saying now....AJ burns Comartie for big numbers this weekend.

So, if I recall, Comartie isn't rated that highly these days...and he has been wounded, no?

Clearly I am missing something. Yet my Football guys email just warned me that " this could make Tyler Eifert or Mohamed Sanu a better play as a flex or emergency fill-in because Green will be a less compelling target for Andy Dalton.'

Really?

I wouldn't specifically label it as fear of Cro but apprehension of Dalton. The Jets do have a pretty salty defense these days and Dalton does have an undeniable history of coming up pretty small in these types of games vs the better defenses. I would personally be wary of any Bengals this week.

 
I think it's a Revis hangover. I think people see nyj D and they still think of shut down pass coverage. Sure they're good and cromartie is nothing to scoff at, but he's no Revis

 
Think i read on RW hes the 107th ranked CB out of 107 qualifiers according to some metric. Dont know the exact details but basically, yeah, hes not good

 
In my opinion he doesn't think they are going to throw his way and when they do it catches him by surprise and it goes for a big play because he isn't ready. I'm a Jets fan and watch every game. He is the best they got but don't really care for him and don't think he is an elite corner

 
Cromartie played at an elite level last year after Revis was lost due to injury. Cromartie has not played well this year but that is likely due to the fact he has played hurt all season with a hip problem.

 
I don't know what the numbers say as far as him shutting down WRs, but whenever I watch him, he seems like one of those corners that gets burned quite often, but will often make a few big INT returns a year.

I'll never not laugh at him, though, for his gutless play on Shonn Greene's TD against the Chargers in the 2010 playoffs:

Cromartie was 31 on the Chargers at the time. On the replay (where it is more obvious), watch him there to make the tackle on Greene for no gain, but back away like a pansy cause he is afraid to make a tackle. :lmao: :lmao:

To this day, it still baffles me that the Jets then turned around and got that pansy on their team.

Shockingly, he has turned into a tough hitter. I can tell you haven't watched many Jets games the past few years, so you will just have to trust me on it. His first year with the Jets he was still the soft Chargers version. The last three years he has delivered some tough tackles. It is surprising because soft players don't usually ever develop toughness. I have to give Cromartie great credit for becoming tougher.
