Cromartie backs Brady rip

Though the comments were made months ago, they might still sting in some corners. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady fielded two questions about the inflammatory and dated comments made by Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie. In a profanity-laced rant to the New York Daily News prior to last January's playoff meeting with the Patriots, Cromartie used an ugly pejorative term to describe Brady while also calling his sportsmanship into question.

I really don't know," said Francona. "I certainly would love to stay in the game. I have no ambition to ever leave the game. ... I don't want to try to manage in the wrong situation. That wouldn't be good for me. To manage again, you have to have someone think you're worthy to manage. That may not happen." (
