Jets-Pats Playoff Extra!
With all the trash-talking going on, the Jets got to make sure they aren’t swimming up-river without a paddle. The Jets need to play the game on the field, get an early lead, and maintain that lead. Reggie Jackson comments on this in the following article. Jets CB Antonio Cromartie flat out called Patriots QB Tom Brady an a-hole earlier this week.

Antonio Cromartie calls Tom Brady out on Wednesday, Jan 12, NY Daily News:
“We see that a lot. He does it a lot,” Cromartie told the Daily News. “That’s the kind of guy he is. We really don’t give a damn, to tell you the truth.”
Asked what kind of guy Brady is, Cromartie said “ass—-,” according to the Daily News.
“That’s what I think about him. I don’t really give a damn about him,” he said, according to the report. “I don’t have to play against him. I play against the receivers.”

Reggie Jackson calls out Cromartie trash-talk on Thursday, Jan 13, 1050 ESPN Radio:
“What are you talking about? What are you doing? Shut up, play football,” Jackson told 1050 ESPN Radio. “What are you talking about [Patriots coach] Bill Belichick and these people for? Spend your time looking at film, spend your time knocking down a pass. What are you doing? You’re not affecting Brady; you’re wasting time.“
He said Cromartie, who has since said he didn’t regret his comments about Brady, simply doesn’t have enough trophies in his own cabinet to talk about the three-time Super Bowl-winning Patriots.
“Go look at the hardware, dude. Walk through the lobby up there and look at the stuff that’s there,” Jackson said. “You don’t have that, you don’t have anything close to that.
