As the war of words continues between Dolphins running back Reggie Bush and the Jets, Antonio Cromartie has chimed in.
Cromartie says that Bush crossed the line when he referred to Darrelle Revis’s season-ending knee injury as “karma.” Bush said the Jets got what they deserved because the Jets had spoken publicly about targeting Bush, but Cromartie says that’s nonsense.
“I ain’t going to say what I really want to say about Reggie Bush,” Cromartie said. “To me, there’s no such thing as karma. A freak accident happened. For [Bush] to come out and say something like that, to me, it’s unprofessional. It’s not showing any kind of sportsmanship at all.”
Jets coach Rex Ryan made the comment about putting “hot sauce” on Bush that originally got under Bush’s skin, but Ryan said that as he prepares to face the Dolphins again on Sunday, he doesn’t want any cheap shots or hits after the whistle.
“Extracurricular things, nobody wants to see that,” Ryan said, and then added with a laugh, “Who am I kidding? We all want to see it.”
One way or another, the Jets have made clear that they want to see Bush flat on his back.
