Default Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

We'll see. As he admits in this article he's never covered AJ in his career. I think AJ is going to take him to school.

Quote:
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said the way running back Arian Foster commands attention, the Jets will be forced to place up to eight men in the box. That will leave the two cornerbacks alone on the outside, with just one safety over top.
Also seems their game plan is much like other teams to slow down the running game. This sure seems to me to be a "pick your poison" game. OD, Casey, Graham & Kevin could play huge rolls.

I'm really looking forward to this prime time national exposure game.

Go Texans!

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

I imagine they'll cheat the over the top safety towards AJ's side. Expect big plays from the TE's and secondary receivers.

I hope so! I'm playing him, as well as AJ and Schaub, on my FF team this week. See how it goes playing three TEXANS!! I simply could not resist.

Schaub hasn't even looked Andre's way this season so it'll probably look as if he shut Andre down on the stat sheet.

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

Cromartie typically struggles against shorter, shiftier receivers because he refuses to bump receivers at the line so he'll probably do decent on AJ on deep balls because of his long speed. He'll get absolutely eaten alive though on crossing and intermediate routes though against him.

The matchup I love is on the other side with Kyle Wilson trying to cover KW or Keyshawn, and any of their safeties trying to cover OD or Graham. We should win most of the time in these situations. Their LBs can't cover worth a squat either so expect Arian or Casey to have some big gains receiving out of the backfield.

My exact thoughts...

I actually think he matches up well with Andre...

Cover him.

But AJ regularly beats double coverage. You have to stop him from catching the ball, too, and that's the tough part.

4 weeks into the season Andre has 25 targets. Right now it's working but in the long hall? That's not gonna cut it. A top 3 receiver shouldn't be getting only 5-6 targets a game. I'm liking the results so far but when we start playing elite teams Schaub not looking Andre's way is gonna hurt.

I agree. Andre has to be a factor in the games against the elite teams, but I think it just hard to get him the ball. He's so good he gives other people good looks because they're so worried about him. Kinda like our OLB with JJ watt. Brooks and Conner are getting so much attention that JJ is getting 1 on 1 battles and he's destroying them. Our team isn't out standing in just one aspect but were really good in every aspect which I love because you can't take away all of our weapons in one game its just simple impossible, unless us as a unit has a bad game collectively.
