Too bad Antonio Cromartie can only cover half the field. The way he’s playing these days, he looks just as good as Darrelle Revis.
The star cornerback is scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn knee ligament suffered three weeks ago in a win at Miami. While he knows the road to recovery will be arduous, Revis expects to be playing at an elite level next season.
Antonio Cromartie is not Darrelle Revis. Let’s just make that perfectly clear. But for the first time in his two-plus-year tenure with the Jets he appears to want to be.
If you’re keeping score at home, the Super Bowl-winning list reads: Tom Brady with three, little brother Eli Manning with two and big brother Peyton Manning with one. And the only way that Peyton has a chance to win another Super Bowl is to leave Indianapolis.
Darrelle Revis couldn’t believe Rex Ryan’s latest declaration. His coach labeled him the best player in the NFL, hands down. Some lofty praise that made Revis’ eyes widen.
Sure, Tom Brady is great. So are Peyton Manning and Michael Vick. But in Rex Ryan’s always humble opinion, they pale in comparison to Darrelle Revis.
