    When talking about current players, there is no such thing as, "up there with Revis". Does not exist.

    Hey I love it. You have to play CB with a little swagger anyway.

    I can think of at least 10CBs I'd rather have than Cro, an there are prolly another 10 that aren't as good as him but Is take over home because I can't stand watching his horrendous tackling. He now thinks he's a big hitter, so he only goes in with his shoulder now, and doesn't wrap up at all. Cortland Finnegan would have been perfect for this team. I wish we let Cro walk last year and signed Finnegan this offseason.
    What did I say about safety help? Cro is a great ballhawk.

    Indeed. Don't **** around with the boss. Use your blazing speed and push people around. And if nothing else works hit them in the ****ing teeth. Grrr.

    Could care less about him thinking that he is the best in the NFL. I want my guy to have that confidence. As long as he dedicates himself to play like it. He should have the blueprint to do it already, he played opposite the best in the business for over 2 seasons now.

    Exactly. While he does some bonehead stuff out there at times, he definitely a top 5 CB and the Jet fan venom toward him doesn't make sense.

    I love the confidence but the truth is the best CB in the league doesn't get burned by Brian Hartline in overtime on a double move and really cost us the game if not a gift from the football gods. Doesn't matter what he did in regulation before that. I did like the hit on the bruiser Jorvorskie Lane, totally surprised me coming from Cro.

    Brian Hartline is a pretty good receiver. <realtalk>

    Exactly.

    There's only one guy on this team who is THE best at his position. Unfortunately, he's hurt. And our #2 CB is NOT the 2nd best corner in the NFL (after Revis). No ifs, ands or buts.

    And if Revis had said this, I wouldn't have a problem with it, because I know he's the one guy on this team who could talk the talk and walk the walk.

    Ask Brian Hartline his opinion.

    I've always said, do your talking on the field. Because that's the only place where it counts.

    Cro is not top 5. He's very good, but not top 5. I think he's in the 12-15 range.

    That falls right in line with his child count. Eerie.

    No, he does like 90% of the other people in this league, including those on CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS, he says, "I am up there somewhere, but all that matters is if we win football games...that's all I care about...is winning football games".

    This team needs a ****ing PR guy.

    The hate? The hate?!?!?!


    The point is and will always be: SHUT THE **** UP AND PLAY FOOTBALL.

    It would be boring to just watch them play without running their mouth a little bit. What would the world be without this jewel?

    What do you expect the guy to say?

    He's right up there with all of the other great CBs. Is he the best? I don't think so, but it's close... Nnamdi hasn't been stellar in Philly. Patrick Peterson has to show a whole lot more before he can even be in the conversation. Joseph is pretty damn good.

    Opposing QBs will not challenge Cromartie too often, especially if Wilson continues to have trouble locating the ball.

    Nickel is played, what, 50% of the time? That means 90+ CBs play regularly. The drop off after Revis is huge. The next 10 or so guys are very close to each other. I would say Cromartie is in there, which makes him very good.

    I would imagine that the ball will start coming his way a lot more. He'll get burned more, but he should also make a lot of plays, considering his great ball skills.
