08:01 AM ET 10.06 | Though the comments were made months ago, they might still sting in some corners. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady fielded two questions about the inflammatory and dated comments made by Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie. In a profanity-laced rant to the New York Daily News prior to last January's playoff meeting with the Patriots, Cromartie used an ugly pejorative term to describe Brady while also calling his sportsmanship into question. Cromartie stood by his remarks [Wednesday]. Not that Brady was interested. At. All. First, Brady said, "I don't care what he says about me, I really don't." Later, Brady spoke nicely of Cromartie as a player, as he talked about his star teammate, Darrelle Revis.

The J-E-T-S wouldn't know sportsmanship if it bit them in Ryan's fat arse.

That would only improve the smell!

Jets Suck!! Hey, trick question, How many Kids is Cromartie admitting to being his?

October 6, 2011  08:39 AM ET

Good job Brady! Way to shrug off comments from someone who's back due on child support!

Brady did the right thing, QBs have picked on Cromartie a lot this year.

October 6, 2011  08:58 AM ET

He can talk nice when they get in the call of fame. Brady as a first ballot inductie, and Cromartie as a visitor.

The reason why Brady couldn't hear this goofball is that he was too busy shining his Superbowl rings. Hush, Cromartie. Nobody cares about what you have to say.

True. Cold, but true.

Yeah, well, last I remember Brady was about to cry like a little Beeeetch when the Jets whipped 'em in the playoffs. Many on this site have short memories. Go Jets! Go Yankees!! Go NYC!!! All others know where they can go.

Cromartie doesn't have time to talk. He needs to be shoring up that flood of receptions overtaking his island.

To his credit, Cromartie has an impressive collection of Father's Day cards.

I have a hard time believing this report is accurate. The Jets, and especially Cromartie, have way too much to worry about to be piping up about Brady. Cromartie--less time with the media and more time in film study.
