Antonio Cromartie suffered non-contact knee injury today in practice, taken for MRI,


@MMehtaNYDN: I'm told that Cromartie's knee injury is not season ending. Not overly serious. However,his status vs Steelers is in doubt


...well crap

Too bad Cromartie went down. You guys are already without Dee Millner so that leaves your secondary rather thin and it should help out our receiving corps, in particular Antonio Brown. Definitely going to be an interesting match up. I think a lot of this game is going to be predicated on whether or not our defense can put pressure on Geno Smith. If we can pressure Smith and cause some turnovers (God knows we need them) then I like our chances of winning this game. If we play defense like the Atlanta Falcons with zero pressure getting to the Quarterback I can see Smith doing the same thing to us that he did to the Falcons.

sounds like he dodged a bullet


Rich Cimini ‏@RichCimini Cromartie MRI shows hyperextended knee, not serious, per source. Status for Sunday uncertain. #nyj

This is really big for you guys. Cromartie was asked to do a lot and basically all of Rex's crazy blitzes were predicated on Cro being able to cover so well. We already lost our only speed edge rushing LB this week and I'm guessing Kyle Wilson will be moved from covering the slot to outside. He's been ok covering the inside, but Wilson has been horrible on the outside.

With AB on pace for 1600 yards this season, he might shred Milliner like he did Tim Jennings against the Bears. That could be our saving grace this game as the left side of our offensive line is basically a giant turnstile.

Milners not even playing I don't think. Hamstring.

Ouch. Well, AB and Manny Sanders could potentially have huge days. Through 4 games this season, Ben has 1231 yards. If we're talking about AB and Manny going up against third and fourth string CBs, all three of those guys could have huge days.

I don't want to sound like a jerk or anything, just spitballing.

Yeah this is gonna be a long day now. Our only hope is our dline gets to Ben quick or Haley calls a dumb game. All I know is I'm starting AB on my fantasy team now.

the match ups scream for ben to come out passing, put up a sizable lead and grind out the game with the run in the second half. but that is too conventional and everyone knows that is the winning formula.

with that being said, haley is most likely going to pull an arians and rush leveon bell into a wall, trying to establish the run and put ben into known passing situations so the jets can tee off and get several turn overs.

by the time we are down 2 scores, the passing game will finally be unleashed, but by then it will be too late as the jets will know we are in comeback mode, and continue to tee off.

...and now our leading receiver...beleive it or not its Kellen Winslow...is doubtful for Sunday. Hes been excused from the team. Weird situation becuase its not injury related and he was mad after the Falcons game because he didnt get the ball enough. Specualation hes being a freakin baby.
