I think Antonio Cromartie’s new teammate, Patrick Peterson, would disagree with this statement. Cromartie took his talents to Arizona, but made sure to bring all his confidence with him.
During an appearance on NFL Network, Cromartie was shown results of a fan poll that showed Sherman as the top choice at cornerback over Peterson, Joe Haden and Cromartie’s former teammate Darrelle Revis.
Cromartie says he was surprised that his name was omitted from the list, and then stated that he and Revis are the two best cornerbacks in the NFL.

“To me, right now, it’s either me or [Revis]. You got three guys that’s up and coming, but right now it’s either me or this guy — when we’re healthy,” Cromartie said. “And when we’re healthy we know what we can do on the football field. We’ve both shown it in a Rex Ryan defense with zero help. We tell that safety to roll up to the other side. … I want these guys to be on an island by themselves and play zero coverage. They [haven’t] done it yet. They [haven’t] done nothing that me and Rev have done in Rex Ryan’s defense.”
