New York Jets‘ Antonio Cromartie is one confident person. Earlier in the season, Cromartie dubbed himself the “second-best wide receiver” on the Jets roster behind Santonio Holmes. And now, Cromartie is labeling himself as the best cornerback in the NFL.
It is funny, though, since his teammate Darrelle Revis is considered the best in the league. However, Cromartie thinks it’s no contest between the other cornerbacks.
He told the New York Daily News that there were “none,” including Nnamdi Asomugha of the Philadelphia Eagles. Besides Revis, Cromartie thinks he’s better than everyone else in the league. And if it weren’t for Revis being his teammate, he would be dubbing himself as a much much higher rank than his teammate.
“I have said that I’m the second-best corner in the NFL,” he reportedly said. “I’m not backing off what I said. I don’t care what anyone else believe… I know what I’m capable of when I’m at the top of my game.”
And with Revis most likely out for this season with a torn ACL, Cromartie can wave that flag proudly of himself saying he’s the best defensive back in the league…at least in his world.

Like many great nations, the collapse of Revis Island is detrimental to all of its neighbors. The ability of Revis Island to shut down any enemies was how the cornerback made his reputation.But, like many prosperous nations, the most impressive trait was how he elevated all of his allies.Sure, Darelle Revis can play suffocating man-to-man coverage with the best. And many great receivers...
There is little doubt that New York Jets corner back Darrelle Revis is the best in the league at what he does. The shut down messiah unfortunately suffered an ACL tear last Sunday, presumably ending his season. Head Coach Rex Ryan has different thoughts in that regard, however, and the Jets will keep Darrelle Revis off injured reserve (IR) in case they reach the Super Bowl:
The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE
The New York Jets continue to get punished by the football gods.
A week after losing Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis for the season due to a non-contact knee injury, wide receiver Santonio Holmes may have suffered the same fate when his knee gave out after catching an out-route pass from quarterback Mark Sanchez.
To make matters worse, Holmes fumbled...
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan indicated today that they won’t place cornerback Darrelle Revis on season ending injured reserve just yet, in hopes that he’ll be back in time for the Super Bowl.
Rex is awfully optimistic to assume that his team is going to the Super Bowl after only playing three games. But then again, Revis is the best player on their entire team.
New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller and rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill are both inactive for the team's game against the San Francisco 49ers because of injuries.
Sunday's game marks the third straight that Keller will miss because of an injured right hamstring. Hill strained his right hamstring in New York's 23-20 overtime win at Miami.
Cornerback Darrelle Revis...
The Jets will play with a 52-man roster at least until Darrelle Revis completes his surgery for a torn ACL, Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Ryan does not want to put his Pro Bowl cornerback on Injured Reserve just yet. The reason being: He doesn't want to rob Revis, and the team, a chance of him playing in the Super Bowl.
"You know what? And I've talked...

Remember how the Jets’ chance to make the playoffs was on the conservative offense, good defense, don’t make mistakes, easy schedule model?
