Game's not over, but good call by those who knew Cromartie could keep up with AJ. The last I saw someone cover AJ like that for an entire half was Revis.

Well I was kind of wrong. I thought Dre would be able to get some shorter, intermediate routes against Cro but he's not even getting that. I'd like to see him get some quick hits to him. Slants against Cro generally are effective plays. I'd like to see some of this in the second half.

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

I've always thought Cromartie was a pretty good corner. I never considered him elite or anything, but definitely a #1 on many teams. That said, I'll go ahead and say what I know a few people are thinking - Andre Johnson is no longer AJ. That hamstring clip last year concerned em when I heard about it, and while I have faith that he's still good enough to be a starting WR, he's no longer going to be one of the best WRs in the game.

So the Texans have to know that AJ is slowing down, hence the mixing in of the young guys. The "saving" players is BS b/c they are running Foster like crazy.

props to cromartie, but andre looked bad all by himself. lethargic routes, dropping atleast 2 that hit his hands, and just all around not himself. he was even pulled from several 3rd down situations that i saw ... bad day for #80.

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

How many times did they actually throw to AJ tonight though? Other than the first few games, It didn't seem like the play calling tried to get the ball to AJ a whole lot. Kubiak is so engrained in wanting to run the ball, kill the clock, and to be respectful to the other team. To me it just seems like our offense has tried to utilize AJ as much.

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

Cromartie did well covering Andre Johnson but Andre just wasn't himself tonight. He dropped a couple of wide-open first downs. He made one nice first-down catch. Seems like Andre just didn't bring his A-game. Had he, I think he could have burned Cromartie's ass for one or two TDs.

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

Go Texans!
Cromartie did just what he said he was going to do...he was holding and grabbing jersey quite a bit but he did it in a way the officials couldn't catch him. At one point AJ had some words for him but he is a hellava athlete.....doubles as a WR...

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

AJ is not the same this year, so good corners like Cromartie can cover him. However, AJ is still good enough that he will rip apart corners and safties with less talent. AJ might not be the best in the league like he once was, but I'll still take him over 99% of the rest of the recievers in this league.

How many times did Schaub have to throw the ball away because the receivers were all covered?

The Jets secondary did a great job last night. Schaub had a ton of time to throw at times and just had nobody open.

I think that had more to do with the last drive or two. The only respect Kubiak was showing to the other team, was respecting the job the defense had done and not wanting to risk a turnover.


And Andre did look frustrated last night. They showed him on the sideline late fighting off Cromartie and he just look frustrated.
