Top defensive coach? Not Belichick, says Jets' Cromartie

While Jets coach Rex Ryan reiterated Saturday that he won't be kissing Bill Belichick's rings, Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie was happy to join in the smacktalk, saying he doesn't list the Pats coach among his top defensive coaches.

Cromatie told Newsday Ryan is the league's top defensive coach:

"That's why he got the head-coaching job," Cromartie said. "I mean, it's him and Dick LeBeau. Rex is first on the list and LeBeau's second."No Belichick?"Did I say his name?" Cromartie shot back. "It's Rex and LeBeau. I got a one and a two, not a one, a two and a three."
