Default Cromartie takes jab at Steelers' Ward

Quote:
A week after calling out Tom Brady, New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is riled up about Pittsburgh's Hines Ward.
During an interview Friday on SportsNet New York, Cromartie says the Steelers wide receiver is not ''man enough to hit you when you're looking at him.'' Ward is widely considered one of the league's most aggressive receivers, with some opponents calling him dirty.
Cromartie says he doesn't consider Ward dirty, but ''I know for a fact that he will hit you while you're not looking.''
The comments come a week after Cromartie stirred things up when he called Brady an expletive leading up to the Jets' 28-21 playoff win at New England.
The Jets (13-5) and Steelers (13-4) play in the AFC championship Sunday night.

Ever see Hines run block head on? Dude's a maniac.

I'm going to laugh when Hines knocks Cromartie on his ass.

Cromartie really isn't very intelligent. Talking shit at Brady is one thing, but this is an entirely different animal. Didn't he see Hines break that guys jaw?

Yeah, that was crap. But the better block was later on a run where Hines blocked/pushed Ed 15 yards down the field and all Eddie could do was throw his hands up in the air and cry for a penalty.

What did Hines do as he headed back to the huddle? ---->

I love Hines response when they asked him about this a few years back. I think it was something like "It's the NFL. Be ready."

I really don't see what the big deal is. I mean, you're allowed to pummel any quarterback not named Tom Brady into the ground on a blind side hit... why the hell should defensive backs get a pass?

What kills me about all these defensive player whining about how hard Hines Ward hits him is the fact that if the shoe was on the other foot and a defensive player was returning an INT or Fumble that they would earhole anyone in the way of said player getting more yards.

He just better pray that Wallace, Sanders or Brown don't go by him and go 70 yards for a TD. ..
