Poor memory or not, Cromartie has played well during his somewhat short tenure in New York after coming over via trade from the San Diego Chargers.
Some of that can be attributed to his ‘F.U.’ attitude on the field, at least, so says Cromartie who told the New York Post his attitude helps his perform well on the field:
Q: What’s your mentality on the football field?
A: I’m a jackass (laugh). I talk a lot of trash on the field. I take everything personal when it’s on the football field. Even on the practice field. I have that F.U. attitude.
Q: Best single piece of trash you’ve spoken that got the desired effect?
A: I think I told somebody, this is when I was in San Diego, I just told the receiver [Kansas City’s Dwayne Bowe], “You might as well go sit down on the bench ’cause they’re not gonna throw the ball to you.”
While the results on field speak for themselves, somebody needs some trash talking lessons.
