Douchebag of the Week: Antonio Cromartie

Antonio Cromartie has been in the headlines an awful lot this week, and it isn't because if his play on the field.  Cromartie, a cornerback for the New York Jets popped off when asked about New England quarterback Tom Brady.

"Tom Brady is an asshole, fuck him."  Cromartie said to the press earlier in the week.

The media obviously beat this story in the ground, and while Cromartie assessment of Brady may be correct, Cromartie is the last person on either squad that should be running his mouth.  Cromartie is a walking punchline, 9 kids, by 8 women, in six different states.  He famously had difficulty naming all of his children, while doing an interview on Hard Knocks.  Cromartie was also singled out in an ESPN report, where it was alleged that Cromartie could only read 2 words a minute.  That claim wasn't dismissed by Cromartie's agent.

Cromartie is also one of the softest players the NFL has ever seen.  He famously was blasted by Shonn Greene last year in the playoffs, which effectively ended his tenure in San Diego.

The last thing an illiterate punk should do, is to get under the skin of a Hall-of-Famer.  Brady doesn't need anymore motivation to carve up the Jets defense, and it will only set up shame and embarrassment for Cromartie.

Cromartie just needs to keep his mouth shut, and leave the interviews to those athletes who can form sentences, and pull out once in a while.  The guy is one of the dumbest people on the face of the Earth.

It's all good 'Cro, after you get your ass beat on Sunday, you can celebrate your Douchebag of the Week Award!
