Cromartie not backing off comments

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Antonio Cromartie, who told the New York Daily News he thought Tom Brady was an "ass----", didn't back off his statements Wednesday afternoon.

"I've said what I had to say. My opinion is never going to change about Brady," he said. "At the end of the day, it's going to be what it's going to be. I hate him, he hates me, he hates the Jets, who cares?"

Does Cromartie hope that Brady goes after him on the field.

"I hope so, I really do. I hope he throws the ball 10 times my way -- more chances to make him pay," Cromartie said.

He's not worried about supplying bulletin board material for the Pats.

"They can have all the material they want to," he said. "It's about what you do between the white lines. They don't care what we say."

And his feelings won't change.

"It's ongoing. It's been since 2006," Cromartie said. "As long as I'm in the NFL and as long as he's in the NFL there's going to be that hatred."
