The New York Jets are missing arguably the best defender in the league, but according to Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, he is the best corner in the NFL now that Darrelle Revis is hurt and might miss the entire season.
Cromartie spoke to the New York Post and gave some interesting answers when it came to his status as an elite defender.
When asked how many cornerbacks other than Revis were better than him?
Cromartie answered, “None.”
Cromartie was asked if he was the second-best corner in the NFL?
Asked again, he said.
When asked he is believed that that?
This season, Cromartie has nine tackles and one interception.
“My job is not to be like Revis,” Cromartie said. “My job is to be Antonio Cromartie. I’m supposed to be me. And I’m going to continue to be me. “I have said that I’m the second-best corner in the NFL. I’m not backing off what I said. I don’t care what anyone else believes... It’s my confidence in myself. I know what I’m capable of when I'm at the top of my game.".
