Thats also a BS OTL story where the two people they interview are someone who is suing the university and a former player who was only there one semester and has an extensive rap sheet. Not reputable sources, but leave it to ESPN to make a 30 minute trash piece out of that.
The video gif's were deleted on here, somebody needs to put those back up. I love the part where he runs behind him for the shoulder bump in the endzone then comes back and post "got him! OWNED" lol, classic stuff.
edit: I take that back, I'm at work and I can't see videos/gifs at work so that could be the only reason why.
id have him opposite finnegan, cecil will make him tough or make him gtfo
Titans will never take Cromartie. Look at this season. They left Nick Harper in even though he was complete garbage against the pass because he was a "good" tackler and benched Rod Hood even though he was making plays against the pass because he couldn't tackle.
Some of you guys are saying that you wouldn't mind him as a 2nd CB if you already have a great one, but I wouldn't want him for that. He'll get feasted on. In 06, Champ was having the best season by a corner since the rule change, and Darrent Williams(RIP), who was much better than Cro is, got continually exposed. Over and over again. Because eventually, teams gave up throwing towards Champ when he was locked up man to man. It was useless. They focused on burning Darrent, and they burned him bad. The same thing would happen to Cro, only worse because Cro sucks and Darrent at least played hard.
Cromartie is one of those guys that if he just was a little more consistent, you'd almost like him in that role opposite a great corner because he could wind up making quite a few plays on the ball due to be targeted so much.
That said, he's just not a starting corner right now in terms of his approach to the game. I hope he can pull it together, because we know he can be amazing.
Why would anyone care if he had langage deficiencies? Lester Hayes had a speech problem but he was a nasty SOB that helped the Raiders win the Super Bowl.
People who want him on their team need to understand they will have to live with a guy that plays like a girl. If your ready to give that up to improve slightly your coverage ability then maybe its fine. His value is at best a 3rd round pick IMO.
