Antonio Cromartie said some unpleasant things about the quarterback he faced last week. This week he’s not wielding that verbal hammer again.

“Nah,” he said with a smile when asked if he has any feelings towards Ben Roethlisberger. “What I said last week is what I said about him. But that’s behind and over with. We’re moving on to the AFC championship game and getting ready for the Steelers.”

It seems like everybody is hoping to get Cromartie to give up a bleep-worthy soundbite on Roethlisberger or the Steelers. But he wasn’t providing any four-letter fireworks today.

At one point a reporter asked if he had any adjectives to describe Roethlisberger.

“Next question,” Cromartie said.

That's not an adjective. Then again, technically, the term Cromartie famously used to describe Brady last week is a noun.
