While the Patriots are zipping it in advance of Sunday’s divisional playoff game, the Jets are continuing to take shots at Tom Brady. And now Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has taken those shots to the next level.
Cromartie was asked for his thoughts on Brady and offered a couple of seven-letter responses that we can’t fully reprint without resorting to hyphens.
“An asshole,” Cromartie said, according to the New York Daily News. “F–k him.”
Cromartie also chimed in on Brady pointing to the Jets’ sideline after throwing a fourth-quarter touchdown pass during the Patriots’ 45-3 win over the Jets.
“We see that a lot. He does it a lot,” Cromartie said. “That’s the kind of guy he is. We really don’t give a damn, to tell you the truth.”
We’ll see during the week if Brady has anything to say back to Cromartie, or if he’ll save his response for Sunday on the field.
