Cromartie: 'I hope they boo me again'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Antonio Cromartie was asked following Jets practice on Wednesday if he thinks he'll be booed when he takes the field at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

"I hope I get booed again, honestly." said Cromartie. "I hope I get booed again. They're not my fans. My fans are in New York." 

Cromartie famously called Brady an "ass----" days before last January's playoff game between the Jets and Patriots. Cromartie said on Wednesday that he still feels the same about Brady, but did call the quarterback "the best in the league."

Rex: I'm not in Belichick's class

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rex Ryan owns a 3-2 head-to-head coaching record against Bill Belichick, but Ryan elected to take a modest approach when asked during his press conference Wednesday if he thinks Sunday's game between the Jets and Patriots will come down to coaching.

"Part of it is your coaching staff vs. their coaching staff," Ryan told the media. "He's the best coach in football, and if it comes down to us he's going to win it. I don't have a problem saying that. I'm not in that class. But I'm going to compete and give him everything I have and we'll do that as a staff as well. We know it's going to take everything we've got and we'll see if that's good enough."

Manny called Francona after Sox exit

In his interview on The Big Show, former Red Sox manager Terry Francona revealed that he received a phone call from Manny Ramirez after the decision was made on Friday that he would not be returning to the Boston dugout following the disappointing end to the 2011 season.

"Actually, Manny called me. How ‘bout that?" Francona said. "I was very surprised. It was actually a very nice message and I appreciated it a lot."

The context of that revelation was a question about how Francona, after having managed a player like Ramirez who generated constant headaches from 2004 through the middle of the 2008 season (when he was traded), could have found it so difficult to manage the Red Sox clubhouse this year.

"What we did with Manny was, and I didn’t want to speak out of school, but I would always call the veterans in, eight or nine of them because we had a very veteran team," recalled Francona....
