Revis situation puzzles Jets on "Hard Knocks"

Either New York Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum is genuinely puzzled about the reports that the team is close to reaching an agreement on a new contract for Darrelle Revis, or Tannenbaum should win a Best Actor Emmy for his work on Hard Knocks.

The latest installment of Hard Knocks, HBO’s reality show that goes inside the Jets’ training camp, features Tannenbaum and the rest of the Jets’ brass seeming confused about reports that they’re close to a deal with Revis, their holdout cornerback.

Tannenbaum sounded completely baffled when the Hard Knocks cameras caught him asking, “Where do you think this is coming from?”

Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was shown reading PFT as he asked head coach Rex Ryan, “Why does Tim Cowlishaw keep reporting about Revis?”

We’ve been wondering the same thing.

In non-Revis news, Ryan was back in profane form when he talked about how the Jets could intimidate the rest of the NFL by beating the Ravens, Patriots and Dolphins in the first three games of the season.

“We open the season with our three toughest games,” Ryan said. “We start kicking ass, that’s going to send a message to the whole league. Like, ‘Oh, sh–.’”

Later, Ryan told his players, “Let’s play like the f–king New York Jets and not some f–king slapdick team.”

And the Jets’ front office was shown agonizing over the future of a couple of veterans, fullback Tony Richardson and receiver Laveranues Coles. Richardson, all the coaches and executives seem to agree, is such a good presence in the locker room that they can’t get rid of him even if, at age 38, he doesn’t bring as much to the table as rookie fullback John Conner.

But while Ryan had nothing but positive things to say about Coles, the Jets decided to release him anyway, likely ending the veteran’s career.

    Coles will be back in time for week 2 vs pats.

    The shit talkin Ryan did to Deangelo Hall was priceless…”Thats why my brother cut your ass.”

    Don’t get all excited about the PFT plug on Hard Knocks dude. They were reading it because you idiots at PFT were the only ones that took Cowlishaw’s crap and ran with it….posting story after aweful story. You should be embarrassed PFT was part of that sham.
    But I had to log on here to see which one of you three idiots would be the first to jump up and down like a gitty school girl about the plug. Congrats on beating Floria to the punch…..the obsessive moron was probably hiding in Favre’s closet trying to get the big controversial scoop on what color underwear Brett’s going to be wearing tomorrow…..

    From a business man point of view it is hard to understand why someone would choose not to work in an attempt to make more money.
    In the diluted world of athletes that somehow makes sense.

    First, how does Florio not have HBO? Are times that tough?
    Second, this was by far the best episode of Hard KNocks I can remember. I thought a lot of the previous episodes were pretty boring but the scene tonight when Rex gets after them about having fun without being jackasses was fantastic. The scene where they are talking about the Revis rumors was great as well (and I did see the shot of the PFT web page).
    As for Coles, I thought it was pretty clear that they only released him so his salary is not guaranteed and that if he does not sign with someone else, he will be back.
    Great episode though. And this is from a non-Jets fan.

    LOL Dude…..can you put that in a little more context for us??
    If your a Pats fan and what you mean by it is “that if they have to start the washed up Coles by week 2 against the world class Pats, the Jets season will be OVER EARLY” well…then….I’d say you hit the nail on the head….
    but
    If your a Jet’s homer that is reliving the sparse positive moments from the 9-7 seasons of the late 90′s/early 2000′s…..and think Coles coming back for week 2 against the Pats would be GOOD news……..your out of your F’n mind.
    Sorry dude (and if your some old 97 year old dude with demensia at the convelescent home…..I really am sorry for making fun of you)

  9. Marcinik07 says: Sep 1, 2010 11:25 PM

    He has no conscious of the media. He is a terrible coach that will only create negative attention with each and every loss. He is also fat.

  10. ADX says: Sep 1, 2010 11:27 PM

    Yeah a coach who would cry rape the moment a player punched him in the fat stomach trash talking sure is priceless.
    That’s why he will never coach a Championship team.
    They keep bringing up “We were one game away from the superbowl”
    You were LET in the playoffs by 2 different teams and ultimately disposed of like trash by the team who let you in.
    Again, that’s why they aren’t winning a Superbowl. They believe their own hype way too much.

  11. Zach says: Sep 1, 2010 11:44 PM

    “Let’s play like the f–king New York Jets”
    Wow, lame. Jets have sucked for years, last team you want to play like.

  12. BugKiller says: Sep 1, 2010 11:44 PM

    The Jets will start the year 0-3, and will be lucky to win 7 games this year.
    Book it.
    This team and this Buffoon who coaches them talk some big talk, but when it gets time to play between the lines, the 16 teams on their schedule are going to see to it that the Jets players pay for every single idiotic thing their buffoon head coach keeps on saying.
    Teams are going to cheap shot Jets players all year, no matter the price. Coaches are going to run up the score when they get the chance. Opposing LBs are going knee-hunting on Sanchez.
    The NFL is sick and tired of the Jets and their bozo coach.
    And when the Jets players start piling up in the training room, they’re not going to be big fans of their big mouth coach for long.

  13. Rob0729 says: Sep 1, 2010 11:49 PM

    Hey Michael David Smith, Florio is going to be upset that you didn’t point out that PFT made a cameo on Hard Knocks tonight.

    play like the jets? they havent been to a super bowl in 40 years all the franchise knows is slapdick.

  15. CoastalCarolina87 says: Sep 2, 2010 12:17 AM

    Love’em or hate’em, you are all still watching and commenting on the Jets. Keeping them up front and ahead of the Giants. Some of you haters should just buy a PSL and go to the games because you’re going to be watching anyway. And don’t forget to spend some money at the concession stands. See ya there!

  16. Frank Stallone says: Sep 2, 2010 12:27 AM

    Yes, and a week after the Bengals “let” the Jets into the playoffs, the Jets bounced them right out of them. The Jets proved they belonged last year by beating the Bengals and a Charger team that a lot of people had as the AFC Super Bowl representitive.
    The Jets hatred is funny to me. Why be jealous of a team that hasn’t won a Super Bowl in forty effing years?
    2007 was a long time ago. The Pats’ defense is in total shambles. The Jets offense may never light up the scoreboard with Sanchez, but the defense is going to be dominant, with or without 24.
    Tom Brady will be watching the Jets in the AFC title game from the same place I’ll be: a couch. Although, his is probably a lot nicer.

  17. Sactown49er says: Sep 2, 2010 12:29 AM

    ADX…. Couldn’t agree more. Let in the playoffs. 9-7. And every1 is picking them for the big game. Rediculously overhyped. And there coach is also fat.

  18. clintcooper says: Sep 2, 2010 1:29 AM

    ==============
    Umm……..did you watch the episode at all?
    “enjoy your vacation”- Rex Ryan
    That’s what he said to Coles after he explained to him that his release was strictly a book keeping measure, that they were relying on his leadership for the season, and he would be back after week 1.
    Seriously, pay attention.

  20. MizzouRam says: Sep 2, 2010 1:34 AM

    ==============
    Depends on your situation. I am an independent manufacturer’s representative. I work on 1 year contracts. I often withhold my services from companies I represent if I think it will give me leverage to get a more favorable deal in the upcoming year.
    The fact is, there are many examples in the business world where the threat of withholding services is used as a negotiating tool.
    You could say that this situation is different because Revis’s deal has not expired. But his contract only says that if he wants to play football for money, it has to be for the Jets. He is not violating his contract in any way by holding out, if he is willing to accept the consequences.
    In the highly restrictive world that is the NFL labor situation, the holdout is the only tool available to a player who seeks leverage. You wouldn’t appreciate if someone interfered in your efforts to make more money at work, so leave Revis alone.

  25. dennis112484 says: Sep 2, 2010 1:58 AM

    if you look at it they really werent that close to the super bowl. the bengals were playing terribly by those last two games and the chargers got it because their division sucks. they got blown out by the patriots in foxboro, and they would have had no chance against the ravens and then peyton manning took it to them like he should have the first time. they lost to the bills at home last year when fitzpatrick started. they arent that good, everything came together in the perfect way.

  26. Laxer37 says: Sep 2, 2010 2:03 AM

    “We start kicking ass, that’s going to send a message to the whole league.”
    ————————————————
    Unfortunately, a message will also be sent around the league if the Jets are on the receiving end of the ass kickings.
    Sure a lot of talk from a second-year head coach with a second-year quarterback.
    The piling on will not be pretty if these guys can’t back it up.

  27. OJPimpson says: Sep 2, 2010 2:53 AM

    What I think is so funny which it seems like everyone else fails to notice is whenever Rex or any of the other “characters” talk about winning or a player being “great” or even taking the super bowl… they look around for each others approval.. Rex ryan to Tanny : This Sanchez kid is the real deal, he can make some great throws.. (Pause… smile… right Tanny?? ) Tanny????

    0-3 . The RV wets are totally irrelevant to anyone with an IQ above 12.
    This lard is an embarrassment to even….. wait for it…. Noo Joisey

  30. rpiotr01 says: Sep 2, 2010 7:44 AM

    Rex should worry less about putting the rest of the league on notice, and more about his starting QB’s inability to throw a basic out pass to the sideline. That last game was brutal – duck after duck, skipping at receivers’ feet. You’re not going to win with a guy like that.

  31. GreenAsGrass says: Sep 2, 2010 8:41 AM

    I hate to keep going back to this but considering the topic I will — this team and the way the rest of the NFL looks at the Jets changes if and when Revis signs.
    With Revis, 11-5 win AFC east.
    Without Revis, anyone’s guess. As much as I like the kid Kyle Wilson, until he plays in real games you just don’t know what you got.

  32. overkil2 says: Sep 2, 2010 8:41 AM

    That left guard position is going to get Sanchez killed is they don’t do something about that.

  33. SFTitanfan says: Sep 2, 2010 8:54 AM

    The idiot wants to be the highest paid player in the league. The holdout is pure greed. He’s already taken care of for life, but he wants to make a point. Yea, he’s making a point to his teammates and every fan out there. That he’s a d-bag, motivated purely by money.

    The NY Slapdicks! I like it! I hope the Team can cash the checks that Rex is writing…alligator mouth with a bluejay ass….LOL

  36. SF Saints Fan says: Sep 2, 2010 9:33 AM

    Rex:
    “We open the season with our three toughest games,” Ryan said. “We start kicking ass, that’s going to send a message to the whole league. Like, ‘Oh, sh–.’”
    The combined 2009 record of those “three toughest” opponents is a whopping 26-22, FOUR whole games over .500. Just for informational purposes only, the Defending Super Bowl Champion Saints start the season with Prime Time Games against the Viking, Niners and an NFC South Contest with the Falcons. The combined 2009 record of those three teams, 29-19, TEN games over .500. Rex, I think if the Saints are 3-0, the league will be talking about them, not the 1-2 Jets.

  37. BRUTUS9448 says: Sep 2, 2010 9:33 AM

    SO TRUE. I was saying this while watching the show….Look at Holmes, he is playing like a jet alright, fumbling in the opponents territory!!

  41. runtheball says: Sep 2, 2010 10:34 AM

    Tannenbaum was saying the report was that Revis was showing up not necessarily getting a new deal. He is already under contract. The defense is still pretty good without Revis, the problem is the offense.

  42. KoaMisiFan says: Sep 2, 2010 11:02 AM

    From Darren Woodsen:
    Are the Jets still a viable playoff team if Darrelle Revis doesn’t play this season?
    “No,” Woodson replied. “I played with a guy named Deion ‘Prime Time’ Sanders. He did a great job of taking away a half of the field. When you look at the New York Jets, they like to bring a ton of pressure.
    “Without Darrelle Revis, they’ll be half the defensive team they were last year.”

  43. Marcinik07 says: Sep 2, 2010 11:06 AM

    @youfools Did I once say he didn’t know football? I said he is a cancer to the team with his mouth. The media is going to eat him alive when they start losing. He doesn’t know how to balance the chemistry. He is a great DC, but not a HC, and yes he is fat.

  44. cunninglinguist says: Sep 2, 2010 11:16 AM

    Are you jealous Cunny? I used to laugh at you with your comments, but now I just feel sorry for you. Here I am with a computer that boots up quickly, I can read the few posts pretty quickly, and can type rather quickly. Then, I can log on a little later while sitting around and do it all again. Poor you. You have to go to the library to log onto an antique of a computer and it takes several hours for you to walk back and forth to do it.
    I feel so badly now for making fun of you.

    The background to Koasissy’s cpu has to be mark sanchez. He reminds me of Ray Finkle from Ace Venture he has Jets stuff hung on his room with like Die Jets Die on it.

    @Koa
    Hell of a comeback.
    But you left out a couple things:
    My job at McDonalds
    Living in moms basement
    Being drunk by 930 am
    sexual relations with siblings
    low IQ
    reporting back to school next week
    Any other unoriginal cliche’s i might have forgotten?
    Serious question for you though….what could I possibly be jealous of? I could have exactly what you have if I spent every waking minute posting on PFC. When I checked in Monday I saw you spent all weekend posting….Friday night to Sunday night. Pathetic dude. I can understand trolling people on this website, but all weekend? Friday nights and Saturday nights are for hanging out with friends or meeting girls….not working on your monitor tan. I can assure you that life isn’t about spending every free minute pounding your keyboard because you hate the Jets. You should take up knitting or a stamp collection…anything to keep you off the internet for an hour or two a day. Its unhealthy how many times you post here.

    Sure Cunty,
    I see your job at McD’s has gotten you far in life. I just wish I had such an active life like you so busy every single minute of the day. But, unfortunately, I actually have a nice woman to spend time at home with and don’t have to go troll the bars like you. And maybe, just maybe, my house is the party house and my friends come here to hang. Do I log onto the computer while they are here? No, but I do when they leave. Again, are you jealous?

  52. KoaMisiFan says: Sep 2, 2010 10:04 PM
