I politely disgree with NFL.com Dan Leberfeld

NFL.com had a blog about Antonio Cromartie today.

“Although the recently discarded Antonio Cromartie is the last Ryan-style press cornerback left on the market, a league source tells the New York Post’s Brian Costello not to expect a reunion,” wrote Chris Wessling.

“‘They’re not being very aggressive,'” the source added.

“Shocking.”

I politely disagree with the use of the word “shocking.”

Cromartie was wildly inconsistent last year.

I also politely¬†disagree with the premise that Cromartie is the “last Ryan-style press corner.”

Not really.

Cromartie has terrific balls¬†skills, but isn’t great at bump-and-run, and sometimes drops back from the line, when he’s supposed to be jamming. He allows too many free releases.
