Jets’ Cromartie To QB Critic: ‘I Will Smash UR Face In’

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Antonio Cromartie is at it again. The Jets cornerback threatened to “smash” Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s “face in” during a Thursday night Twitter tussle.

Cromartie blasted both union and NFL leaders last week, something Hasselbeck took issue with.

“Somebody ask Cromartie if he knows what CBA stands for,” Hasselbeck tweeted, a post he later deleted.

The Jets cornerback responded via his twitter account.

“Hey Matt if u have something to then say it be a man about it. Don’t erase it. I will smash ur face in,” Cromartie posted.

Hasselbeck tried to snuff out the not-so-social media exchange.

“Sorry for the joke man. No hard feelings. DB’s & QB’s have a hard time getting along I guess sometimes. lol,” he wrote.


Cromartie took on both union and NFL leaders last week in the league’s unresolved labor talks, saying they “need to get their (expletive) together and get it done.”

With the collective bargaining agreement set to expire and little progress in negotiations, a potential lockout looms.

“You’ve got our head union reps acting like an (expletive), and they got their guys acting like them (expletive),” Cromartie told reporters.

LISTEN: What do Boomer & Carton think about Cromartie’s threat?

“You don’t get no information about nothing from the union or the owners,” he said. “To tell you the truth, they need to get their damn minds together and get this (expletive) done and stop (complaining) about money. Money ain’t nothing.”

Earlier in January, Cromartie used the same obscenity about Tom Brady.

Cromartie is an impending free agent after his first season with the Jets.

    Racial my ass.
    Just another cry baby loser.
    What happen to all the real men playing the game.
    He would not have had the balls to say that 20 years ago
    Bring LT back and he would still rip them them up

    That’s why hockey is still the purest and toughest sport in the world.
    They take care of business on the ice

    Cromartie is a large child and the league should deal with him. Attacking not only veterans but upstanding members of the league publicly is a rookie move, hasselbeck seems to be a great guy, and he’s funny who would want the ball and to score?

  • Rich

    What Cromartie did was just state the onvious need to get the CBA done. However, his manner is totally disgusting and classless. He is an embarrassment to not only the Jets, but humankind as well. He is not the only player on his team, or the league, that overestimates his value to society.

  • MasterShake

    Boys will be boys. What’s the big deal?

  • Mr. Armenia

    Sounds like everyone is being racial towards Antonio Cromartie

  • Tony

    31 needs to pay about 30 women child support. IF there is no season next year because of CBA then he would be a deadbeat. So now we know why this moron is mouthing off.

  • John G

    Finally! Someone takes both Labor sides to task for being ridiculous, and HE is the bad guy? I’m all for exorbitant salaries for entertainment folk, but sometimes the lines get blurred over labor “negotiations” and perspective is lost. Over-zealous unions from the past are destroying our labor infrastructure today, and then people wonder why so many jobs are being shipped overseas! Cromartie did not go too far! This attitude should be applied to ALL labor talks right now. No one seems to want to sacrifice for the sake of the country’s future! It’s all GREED. This goes for the “Ownership” side as well!

  • sam

    Apparently he don’t get no education while at Florida State. Low life Jets.

  • Puh-Lease

    Cromartie is a typical A-Hole !!! Maybe if he played corner better the JETS would still be Playiong !!

  • Omar

    nope. He did what I would do. In fact, just for dissin Cromartie, I’ll smash hasselback’s face in myself.

  • Don Davidson

    No he did not go too far this whole CBA issue is killing the SuperBowl and threatens Football as a whole. 31 is right to speak his mind while Hasselback is acting like a brown nose little teenager!
