In a story from the New York Post, Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith's three-TD performance in the team's 37-7 thrashing of the St. Louis Rams last week doesn't mean squat to the New York Jets. CB Antonio Cromartie and head coach Rex Ryan seem unconcerned about a chance at a repeat versus their secondary. Cromartie taunted the Ravens rookie, saying:
"He had one big game," Cromartie said dismissively. "That's it. He has five catches for his whole career."
Not surprisingly, the outspoken head coach had something to say on the subject:
"He's a fast guy, and all that kind of stuff, but I don't think he'll have equal success this week," Ryan said. "If he does, then I'm just going to stay in Baltimore."
The Jets are obviously more focused on star cornerback Darrelle Revis shutting down Ravens veteran WR Anquan Boldin that Smith, but then again, so were the Rams. None of that matters to the Jets, or specifically Cromartie, who responded to the question about who he might cover this Sunday night:
"I don't care who I play," he said. "My job is to shut down that receiver. Whoever I face is going to have a hard day."
