Adam Schefter of ESPN joined Dennis & Callahan for his weekly appearance and began by weighing in on Antonio Cromartie’s comments about Tom Brady and how the NFL might feel about them.
"I talked with the league yesterday and tried to see if they had any interest in those comments, and the league wasn’t biting at all," Schefter said. "We’ll talk about this in our pregame show, but I went and looked at the NFL’s personal conduct policy and it reads, and I’ll read it word for word, 'Discipline may be imposed in any of the following circumstances,' and there’s a list, and there’s one that said, 'Conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL, NFL clubs or NFL players.' "
Schefter went on to say that it would seem to him that Cromartie’s comments fall under that clause. He said that although the remarks did not bother him personally, he would fine Cromartie if he were the commissioner because Roger Goodell has made a habit of going by the letter of the law. "When you call somebody a seven-letter word that begins with an ‘A’ and speak in the way you did, it just doesn’t reflect positively on anybody," Schefter said.
As for the Jets' chances on Sunday, Schefter said: "It’s not saying much, but the Jets are going to give them a much better game than they did that Monday night [the 45-3 game]. I think they’re coming ready. I think they have to get more pressure on Brady, run the football and keep Mark Sanchez from playing the way Mark Sanchez has in his two visits to Foxboro. If they can do those three things, and we can go case-by-case and argue whether they can, then they’ll have a chance to beat the Patriots."
