The Other Paper:
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.

The Jets and Dolphins went back and forth all week with their pregame chatter.
Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie fired the final shot Friday when he stated he didn’t give a sh*t about Reggie Bush, for comments Bush made about Darrelle Revis.

The Jets and Rex Ryan reached a major point of importance today in their loss to the Miami Dolphins. With a record of just 3-5, the Jets can lose one or two more games at the most and still make the playoffs.
Their are two people on extremely hot seats right now. The first is head coach Rex Ryan. Without a playoff birth, it seems unlikely the Jets will retain him as their head...
Yesterday was one weird Sunday. One minute I am waiting for Ryan Tannehill to get a red zone touchdown versus the Jets defense and the next minute I see Tannehill go down in a heap of pain on a sack by Calvin Pace on the next series. While the other sideline has Tim Tebow, the Dolphins gladly and happily...
Ryan Tannehill acknowledged that if needed he probably could have re-entered Sunday's game against the New York Jets. However, he was not needed. The woeful Jets could do nothing against Miami, so there was no sense in risking Tannehill further. An MRI was still scheduled after he was knocked out of the game with a knee injury. Tannehill went for the MRI yesterday. ...
Here we are. After all the trash talking it's finally time to see the Dolphins whoop up on the Jets.
