Antonio Cromartie Rags on Mario Manningham for Losing Job to Victor Cruz
The Jets and Giants have been trading trash talk most of the week. It started with Rex Ryan saying he believed his team was the best in football. The Giants responded by discrediting Jets CB Darrelle Revis. Now the Jets cornerbacks have had a chance to respond, and it was Antonio Cromartie doing most of the trash talking.
“You got guys that are not even Pro Bowl material,” Cromartie said. “Who really cares what they have to say.
“If I’m (Top 5) in the burn ratio, I guess I do get beat a lot,” Cromartie said sarcastically. “We’ll have to see on Saturday… that’s even if [Mario Manningham] touches the field. He let a guy named Victor Cruz come in and take his job.”
That Victor Cruz is coming awfully close to setting the franchise record for receiving yards, so losing a job to him is not an insult. And if the Giants had gone to Cruz earlier in the year, they may have had more success. But this is typical Cromartie; he loves to talk. And he does get burnt a lot. I expect to see that happen at least once on Saturday.
