    Antonio Cromartie. He's a freakishly gifted specimen at the cb position. He didn't start until week 10 but he leads the league in interceptions and interceptions returned for tds. He's 6'3" tall, runs a 4.3 second 40 yard dash, has a huge verticle leap, long arms, and great hands. He can also throw a football 80 yards, which just shows how physically gifted the guy is. Randy Moss is also a freakishly gifted athlete but he picks on the less gifted corners of the league. Now it's time for him to take on Antonio Cromartie!


    Look at how high he can jump:

    Sorry Manning, you aren't going to complete a pass on me:

    Cromartie is athletic but 1) he usually plays on the right side of the defense which is the opposite side from Moss and 2) isn't a polished cover guy, he usually gives room and feasts on mistakes.

    He did a great job covering Reggie Wayne both times we played the Colts this year, and will probably be moved to the left side to cover Moss. We won't come with the same game plan we did in week 2. This time Moss will match up against Cromartie.

    great thread! love the pics!

    If we can pressure brady into a couple of bad throws, Cro will be there for the pick!

    Yeah except he only got his INT because Manning threw a horrible pass, Wayne was wide open. Your comments kinda remind me of another freakish athlete at corner Deion Sanders. Great corner and athlete but when matched up against a great receiver such as say Jerry Rice he was beaten like a drum twice a year. I see the same thing happening here.

    Did you forget the other three interceptions that he got on Manning for a total of 4 interceptions on Manning this season?

    Wow you're right. Moss can't light a candle next to this guy. He should just give up.

    As I said, Cromartie is not a great cover corner, he's a great athlete. If the ball is thrown as intended, as Brady usually does, he'll give up yards.

    Cromartie only gets picks from average QBs.

    Brady is not kitna, VY, culpepper, manning and whoever was throwing for KC and Houston

    Keep in mind that he started week 10 and already has 11 interceptions. Also, this is only his second year in the NFL and he's already this good. He'll master all of the intangibles in the coming years but for right now he's good enough to cover Moss since Brady just tosses it up deep and Moss outruns the defender to score a touchdown. The difference is that Cromartie will not be burned.

    You expect him to seamlessly transition from one side of the field to the other? A lot of cornerbacks ***** about such moves.

    Wayne still finished the game with 70+ yards receiving, that's not a "great job" by the second coming of Night Train.

    And I love the pic you've posted to prove he can leap buildings in single bounds as he has a helping hand from behind. :rolleyes:

    cromartie relies too much on his athletism than his football iq... i think randy moss has an edge on that department...

    We'll work something out for Welker but I imagine that Jammer will cover Stallworth and he's a shutdown corner.

    Yea, he did. Did you forget that Tom Brady threw 3 interceptions in that game. We owned your offense but made some boneheaded plays at the end which gave you the win.

    Brady can throw to whoever Florence is covering. That guy is STILL looking for Moss after he put that move on him in week 2.

    Three of his INTs came before he was a starter, so work on your disinformation skills.

    And your misinformation skills could use a little help as well.

    Final score 24-21 Pats. Brady also had the GW TD, least you forget that dagger. You play the game 60 minutes last I checked. What did you "owned" ? Were you playing O or D for Chargers, or are you Marty

    Despite throwing 3 ints he still pulled it out against your overconfident lights out losers

    Thank you for showing yourself to be stupid. Brady doesn't just toss it up deep to let Moss outrun the defenders. In fact, if you had actually watched a game, you'd know that Brady has been able to thread the needle on passes to Moss.

    BTW, Why do you stfu and ask the Jaguars how shutting Moss down helped them?

    He wasn't lifting him up, he was patting him on the butt. If you don't believe he can jump that high, check out this other picture of him in a practice last year:

    So you didn't actually watch the game. How many ints did Jammer have? None you say? Hmm.. In fact, the 3 picks were to Drayton Florence, Marlon McCree and Donnie Edwards.

    In the meanwhile, Reche Caldwell torched Jammer for a 49 yard bomb. The Pats have Moss, Gaffney, Welker, Watson, and Stallworth. Sorry, but the Chargers aren't that good.

    I've watched more Patriots games than any other team besides the Chargers this season and Brady just throws it up to Moss on the deep routes and Moss outruns the defenders or shoves them out of the way to catch the ball like he did in the Dolphins game. Brady does not "thread the needle" on deep passes because he's inaccurate on the deep passes. Moss just makes up for Brady's inaccuracies through his physical skills. Cromartie will take advantage of Brady's weaknesses.

    LMAO!!! :rofl: Yeah, that's what you need to cover Moss, a DB with a strong arm...

    BTW, your photo captions are priceless!! Homerism to the max...

    You must have been suicidal after last year's playoff game. Have to admit though, you're a true fan....

    Why do you think Brady threw those 3 interceptions while passing to the receivers that Jammer wasn't covering? He was afraid of throwing to Jammer so he threw to other receivers and got intercepted. Everyone who knows the Chargers know that Jammer is a shutdown corner. Check out his season stats. He's given up the least amount of yards of all the starting corners in the league.

    That loss hurt bad. But, no one gave us a chance against the Colts and we beat them. I'll admit though, NE is the toughest team the Chargers will probably ever face.

    Works both ways.

    Cromartie has never faced a guy like Moss.

    Forget about covering Moss with one DB.
