    that kind of effort is truly pathetic, now I understand why the Chargers are willing to let him go. I would not even offer a 7th round draft choice for Cromartie after seeing this.

    Check that--someone just pointed out to me that Deshea Townsend has 21 career interceptions. Sorry.

    Corners have to tackle in LeBeau's system. As the video shows, he does not support the run at all.

    I would not offer a first day draft pick for him.

    I am not saying the guy is Rod Woodson but one play does not some up a player.

    That was really bad... especially bad considering it's playoff time (not to excuse that effort in any way). Makes you especially think he has no clue as to what it means to be in the playoffs. He is a fantastic athlete though (I always wondered why he never played WR... I guess his hands aren't WR caliber).

    I never thought of him as a Steeler type of player, so I'm not interested. And especially after that video.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    I agree one play does not some up a player's career, but when it is the NFL playoffs I would expect him to put his nose in there and at least try to tackle. Especially if you are willing to trade a 1st and 3rd in a heartbeat.

    First and third? I think you don't really understand this guy's value.

    Re: Antonio Cromartie on the block

    Guy must be living off of his rookie year highlight reel plays, and there were some damn good ones, 'cause he's been pretty unreliable since then

    Funny, Cromartie was pimped by steelers' draft gurus back then and so was Antoine Cason in a later draft, also a first round charger cb, who I believe was demoted from their nickel back in october. Chargers have 3 first round corners that they drafted themselves and their defense is still terrible (jammer, cromartie and cason)

    I'm sure hesitant to draft a CB in the first round as that seems to be a position of risk for first rounders. Maybe it's the prima donna wide receiver attitude many of them have? But I'm very hesitant to draft a cb in the first round unless he is ranked far and away the very best at the position.

    Athletically, this guy is a straight freak. His athleticism is one of the best in the game today. He can jump to the moon and extend even further.

    Cromartie has play maker written all over him, and has proven so on numerous occasions.

    Cromartie's awareness and football knowledge is a weakness, but it continues to improve each season.

    Cromartie is a threat to change a game every time he's on the field. Cromartie is never looking for the knock out blow (like Jammer), but he usually does a good job of wrapping up and making plays on the run.

    His size also gives him an advantage when covering most receivers
