New York Jets Antonio Cromartie Says He's Best DB In NFL, Doesn't Want To Be

Ah yes, the poor, poor Antonio Cromartie who suffers from being overly successful. It must be so difficult.

Speaking to the New York Post today, the former Florida State product and current New York Jets corner said that while he’s the best defensive back in the league (when he feels like putting forth the effort, mind you) – it’s not something he wants to be.

No, that’s what he said. Really.

The Jets’ new No. 1 cornerback believes if he can stay consistent he could be the best in the game, even better than you know who in Tampa Bay.

“I think so if I’m playing on a consistent basis and using my techniques and doing the things I need to do,” Cromartie told The Post last week.

Even though he believes he can be the best, Cromartie said that is not his goal heading into the 2013 season.

“Can I be? Yes. Do I care to be? No,” he said. “If we’re winning and I’m doing the things I need to do, then that’s what it’s really all about.”

On one hand, Cromartie should be applauded for his honesty and weird attempt at trying to be a team player but on the other hand, somebody needs to remove the hallucinogenic kool-aid he’s drinking.

That stuff is clearly bad for your brain, but apparently not your fertility.
