Things are heating up as Sunday’s AFC playoff game between the Patriots and the Jets approach. Antonio Cromartie and his team are talking trash about Tom Brady and he’s brushing it off. Will it all come out on the field? Get the full story, with more great photos and videos below.
Part of competitive sports is playing a good mind game, but are the personal attacks going too far? What exactly provoked the “rant?” We’ll take a look and hear responses from each party!
The defensive player was interviewed by the Daily News about the pointing of Tom Brady. He calls him an “ass****” and said they are pretty used to his antics. Antonio Cromartie also said:
“We see that a lot. He does it a lot. That’s the kind of guy he is. We really don’t give a damn, to tell you the truth.”
He went on to say that he doesn’t really focus on the Patriots QB, but that he “play[s] against the receivers.” You can see more of the full conversation here. So what did the “accused” think of the comments?
He basically brushed them off and said “I’ve been called worse.”
“Not everybody has great things to say about our team or our players. That’s the way it’s always been.”
What else did you expect? He always seems to save the emotion and passion for the field. I wonder how things will go after kickoff in Foxborough this weekend.
Don’t miss the video of the comments and reactions below. Do you think Antonio Cromartie went too far or was it simple sporting trash talk? Are you irritated by Tom Brady as well?
