2JBallar01 Icon : (22 August 2014 - 07:10 AM) Sanchez is looking good for the eagles. Crazy how a good offense and the right system can make you look so much better. When you're put into a situatuon to succeed, magic happens. Happy for Sanchez, i think he needed a change just as much as the Jets did.

Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 August 2014 - 11:10 AM) anyone have a stream for the preseaosn agme by chance?
ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Don't read to much into Mark in the preseason. He usually looked good in the preseason even in a Jets uniform.. Big difference from regular season where the 1st string defense is playing 100%.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) A lot of 1st stringers are just getting reps in and trying not to get injured. Its only the backups trying to keep or get a job playing hard every down. If preseason qb play meant anything then Matt Simms would be the starting qb of the Jets.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (23 August 2014 - 12:00 AM) In Geno we trust
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (23 August 2014 - 07:23 AM) preseason or not, our offense hasn't looked competent in a while like it does this year. our rushing attack should be very good. Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory could be a dynamic duo

FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:04 PM) Champ Bailey to be released by Denver. Considering how busted up we are and Patterson now being suspended, do we take a look?
FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:05 PM) Cro rumored to be gettin released from Arizona. We should definitely bring him in since he already knows the system and he's bett erhtan our 3rd/4th stringers which is where we're at at this point.

Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:49 PM) need 1 more in the fantasy league
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 PM) Dimitri suspended for the rest of preseason. I'm sorry, I know we are bone dry at corner these days but they should have cut this prick on the spot . He's going to get torched regardless this year and I'd rather cut ties with any potential cancerous attitutudes before the season even starts.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:34 PM) Where I come from you take responsibility for your actions. Not showing up for a game is cowardly and selfish. f*** him
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:36 PM) Also he doesn't know what the acronym AWOL means so he's also an idiot. No wonder he's never been anything but a journeyman corner is this league.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) So how do you really feel?
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 PM) I think my last three posts pretty much summarize how I feel haha. He's making 1.5 mill this year and no call no shows because his feeling are hurt. Would rather you play corner azjetfan than this guy

Cromartie Blames 'hard Knocks' Producers For Kid-Naming Trouble

Posted 21 August 2010 - 10:55 AM

Antonio Cromartie says it wasn't his fault he struggled to name his eight kids on this week's episode of "Hard Knocks." The blame instead lies with an unnamed HBO director, who made the New York Jets cornerback do two takes of the lengthy list, or so says Cromartie.

First, if you haven't watched the video of Cromartie laboring to remember the names of Alonzo, Keris, Myjunia, "my daughter who just turned 3 yesterday", Tyler, London, Lelani and Jersey, go ahead and watch it now. And if you already have seen it, I have no doubt you'll be watching it again because it's the greatest thing that's been on TV this year.

Anyway, Cromartie says the whole scene was staged. He told reporters that the director asked him to redo it because he wasn't pausing long enough between answers and that he had no trouble listing the names the first time.

"I had nailed it the one time before," he said, "but they had to redo it and they just told me to pause between each one of [the names]."

That quote sums up the beauty of this whole thing. Cromartie is proud of himself that he "nailed" the naming of his kids the first time. He's felt he achieved something, sort of like that one time I was able to name all the Supreme Court justices.

I'm not naive enough to believe that reality shows aren't scripted and staged (as I wrote in the recap of this week's episode, everything in "Hard Knocks" with Mike Tannenbaum feels contrived, as do a few scenes with Mark Sanchez), but I also don't believe Antonio Cromartie would willingly agree to look like an idiot on national television nor that he's a good enough actor to sell the fact that he was grasping for the names. I mean, look at his face in the picture above. That's the expression of a man feeling the sting of short-term memory loss. It's like how I feel when a woman in a bar asks me if I remember her name (a feeling I'm sure Antonio Cromartie knows all too well).

HBO denied the accusation and said in a statement that everyone involved in the scene confirmed it was done in one take.

What? A man seemingly searching the back of his head to remember the names of his kids doesn't phase you? I'm as cynical as the next man but when I was watching that, I was half laughing half thinking "If this ign'ant muthafucka can't keep the names of his kids straight, how's he gonna memorize our playbook?!". No, it doesn't make him a "bad man" in the traditional sense... but not remember the names of your kids is in some ways worse. If it was staged, that's fucked up on a few different levels. If it wasn't and Cro is looking for an excuse to make himself look better... he's definitely in the running for 2010 Dad of the Year with Lawrence Fishburn.

True secondhands...I know what you mean. But, for some of those kids he probably has little to no interaction with them.

I feel bad for him honestly...dude must have some potent little sailors.

If I had 14 kids or whatever he has I would not be able to tell you all there ages and names without thinking first. Keep in mind he probably never sees the majority of them and they are all young so he has not had time to get it strait. I have no problem with remembering the names. I do see some shinanagins with having that many kids with that many different women.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.
