Doc pointed out to me (Corectly surprise,suprise) that AJ isn't able to make sharp cuts anymore. So all he runs are fly/back shoulder fades and post patterns. Could it be that his hamstring/knee are hurting? Or is AJ taking it easy during the regular season so that he will be ready for the playoffs?

Aj didn't look good out there, no separation and dropped passes.

Physically, AJ appeared fine. Maybe he needs to see a sports shrink! Somethings not right with him, and I think it's from the nose up. I refuse to believe he has lost heart, that's just not AJ. He's been through an emotional roller coaster with our team for YEARS, maybe it's taking it's toll!

If you saw the Titans game there was a play where he caught the ball over the middle, but all 3 Titans D-backs in pursuit caught up with him - the ole AJ of 5 years ago would have been long gone for the TD. Then there's the dropped passes, which is more difficult to explain, and accept.

Yep, props to Cromartie. It ain't braggin' if ya can back it up, and he did. Though like others have mentioned, Dre looked bad. I know we say it about 'other receivers' but a few balls hit him in a bad place, his hands. I don't recall ever having seen AJ drop easy balls like that.

A much closer game than I thought it would be but still undefeated.

We had an off game and still won it.

Some guys will go through this like AJ did. Foster didn't look good at all last week. Look what Foster did in the Jets game, though.

We need to keep it real, folks: Not every game is a thing if beauty by all 53 players.

Dre looked bad because Cromartie was all over him.


Did you guys not see the replays they showed of Cro's coverage on him?

When a corner gets you out of your groove you see things like we saw last night...dropped passes...

Give Cromartie his credit. He probably would have struggled trying to cover keyshawn but he matches up well with Andre...

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

I don't think Andre is 100 percent. It almost seems like he doesn't trust his body in some situations. Just my opinion and what I see, but I think that's whats causing the drops too. He's thinking so much out there and its hurting him in other areas. After being injured a lot the last couple of years I can't blame him, but he just needs to trust that his body will hold up and go out and make plays.

I thought Johnson looked slow and lethargic. I'm a little worried about that going fwd.

Default Re: Cromartie confident he can cover AJ

Am I the only one that is under the impression that AJ was just fine? They used AJ as a distraction. They didn't want AJ hitting his 10k mark in an away game. They want him to hit it at home, where the fans can see it in person.

I mean, he's not young and spry anymore, but he could've played much harder than what he did, if he wanted to.

I still think that Cromartie is pretty good though.

Most of the team looked like they stayed up all night drinking Manhattan Martinis.
