Hurricane Sandy wasn't the only blast of wind swirling around in New Jersey this weekend.  While New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie was basically a lot less blustery than his teammates,  who talked trash all week leading up to the game against the Miami Dolphins, it was Cromartie who created a post-game storm by calling Reggie Bush a "punk." You think after being completely dominated in a 30-9 thrashing at the hands of the Dolphins, Cromartie would pipe down.  But the outspoken had a few choice words for his pregame target. "At the end of the day, we know his true colors," said Cromartie. Cromartie was specifically looking back at a play early in the game when Bush ran down the sideline and shoved the cornerback with a legal stiff-arm to the face for a 19-yard gain.  Their momentum carried both players out of bounds.  Cromartie hopped up and pushed Bush and then went in for a head butt. The Dolphins running back walked away but both players continued jawing with each other. After the game, Bush had the last — and definitive — word via Twitter. "Great team win!  Dominated in all phases today! Enough said," Bush tweeted. Cromartie's shove resulted in a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty that led to a Dolphins' field goal.  To add injury to insult, Cromartie revealed later that he had dislocated his pinkie finger on the  play. The hot-tempered Jet defended his actions. "I didn't lose my composure.  I just called him a punk.  That's exactly what he is," said Cromartie.  "I didn't head butt him.  I pushed him first before I head butted him." Just what the Meadowlands needs right now — more wind.
