Did you watch the game? Cro was Revis-like. Not only shutting down AJ but being a nuisance in what was effectively a 15 yard radius around him.
I think practicing next to the technically and mechanically flawless Revis for the past 3 years has rubbed off on Cro, who Rex Ryan has made probably the only accurate talent evaluation of during his entire tenure, Cromartie's physical attributes are nearly limitless. He has displayed a lot of amazing anticipation and technique this year through nearly every game, with the breakdowns coming 8-10 seconds in because the pass rush and d-line have been awful. Man defense inevitably breaks down after a while and Rex's insistence on playing it despite not having a pass rush at all goes to show you that he's been damned good.
The only bright spot on this skid mark isn't yesterday's carrots. It's the Jets defense being 5th against the pass, and you sure as hell can't point at a defense with 5 sacks, 2 of which are from Garret Freaking McIntyre as the reason why.
Landry, Bell, and Cromartie have been very good against the pass so far.
