New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is very confident in his team’s immediate future despite their 3-5 record. The AFC East is hardly out of reach in terms of numbers, but many believe the Patriots are poised to run away with the division once they get the ball rolling. Despite having lost Darrelle Revis for the season, Cromartie feels as though the Jets are still very much in the hunt. “The Jets will make the playoffs this year,” Cromartie told “NFL AM” on Thursday, via Around the League. “We believe in each other, we believe in what coach (Rex) Ryan and his staff is putting us to schemes and stuff, so we definitely are going to make the playoffs this year.” In defense of the Jets corner, he was asked by the host if he thought the team would be playing in the postseason this year. The season is only halfway finished, so anything can happen the rest of the way. If you start talking about next year like Mike Shanahan did recently the media will rip you apart — and the Redskins have a worse record than the Jets. Therefore, I’m not going to fault Cromartie for making a playoff guarantee. I will, however, respectfully disagree with his opinion. New York’s defense is merely a fraction of its old self and its offense has been horrible for the better part of the year. Even a switch to the almighty Tim Tebow wouldn’t save the Jets at this point. Photo Credit: Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE
