Jets work to get Revis in shape

He signed his new contract on Monday, and he hit the practice field on Tuesday.  In six days, he’ll be in the starting lineup against the Ravens.

So how is cornerback Darrelle Revis doing?

“He looked good,” coach Rex Ryan said in comments distributed by the team.  “Actually, I’m supposed to say from the defensive staff that he
looks slow [and] maybe we’ll rotate him in. That was from [defensive coordinator] Mike Pettine.   I
don’t know.  We may just spell him a little bit to give Baltimore hope that he’s
not out there.  Everybody that knows me knows he’s going to play. . . .  He had a pick, he knocked a ball out, he dropped another
one.  He was all over the place.   He was Darrelle.  He’s an amazing guy. “

Ryan pointed out that Revis is about four or five pounds heavier than normal, and that he’s a little rusty in only one respect.  “I think it would be the coming in and out of breaks,” Ryan said, “the
quick change of directions [and] the constant playing shape.  It’s one sprint
after another.   He is in great shape.  It’s just getting him to where he can set
his pads.  I think that’s maybe what we’ve got to overcome a little bit.”

Revis said that he expects to be targeted by the Ravens on Monday night; Ryan seems to be hoping that they will.

“The guy has missed all of training camp,” Ryan said.  “They should do that.  Find him and go to him and go to him often.  They’re
smarter than that.  They’re not coming after him.  No way.”

Actually, they won’t need to.  With Revis presumably facing Anquan Boldin on most plays, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Derrick Mason will be covered by someone other that Revis.  So why not simply throw the ball to them?

    Nice of Mevis to keep himself in shape. Nothing like coming into camp slow and “fat” a week before the first game.

  2. JVult says: Sep 7, 2010 9:28 PM

    Rex Ryan is becoming increasingly annoying. He keeps talking about how great his team is. If he really felt that the team was so good he wouldn’t have flown to Florida to beg Revis to end his holdout. In my opinion that speaks volumes about his true view of the team. He knows that the Jets need to have a top 3 defense and solid running game in order to get back to the playoffs because Sanchez has not shown much improvement.

  3. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Sep 7, 2010 9:31 PM

    Fanboys like “you fools” (douche) can rejoice and maybe better explain how he thinks the Jets are going 12-4. lol

    Umm..perhaps because their receiving corps is old and slow, and the Jets defense will be able to cover all of them.

  5. habibfromnewdehli says: Sep 7, 2010 9:35 PM

    The Ravens are going to run Willis McGahee at Revis all night… and when Revis finally comes up to try and make a tackle… he’s going to catch a lethal stiff arm right to the chest.
    But in all seriousness… this game should be a complete defense vs. defense slugfest. I don’t anticipate either offense looking very good. This game could very easily end with a score of 9 – 5.
    Then again, both defenses could score themselves. And there’s always that thing we call special teams.

    Because CRO and WILSON are not Sheppard and Lowery!! All 3 may get shut down!

  7. downwithdansnyder says: Sep 7, 2010 9:44 PM

    They should put clauses in holdouts new big fat contracts that if they aren’t ready to go Day 1, they have big give backs. It’s one thing to hold out, but to show up not ready to go is unacceptable, especially given the asburd money this guy makes.

  8. President Florio says: Sep 7, 2010 9:46 PM

    Quit trying to get PFT on Hard knocks Florio

  9. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Sep 7, 2010 9:48 PM

    It’s going to be harder to exploit Lito Sheppard and Dwight Lowery when they’re not even playing. Cro and Wilson are definitely better.

  10. promin1 says: Sep 7, 2010 9:49 PM

    Please…the Jets are gonna get pounded Monday night. I wouldn’t be surprised if Sanchez throws at least 3 picks. Then fatty will slap the color chart on Sanchez’s wrist again…the big dope that he is. Ravens 28 Jets 13
    Jets suck.

  11. The Hogster says: Sep 7, 2010 9:49 PM

    The Jets are the most over hyped 7-9 team in US History.

  12. DarkHorse81 says: Sep 7, 2010 9:53 PM

    He had a pick, he knocked a ball out, he dropped another one. He was all over the place. He was Darrelle. He’s an amazing guy.
    ————————————————–
    I know Revis is a good player and all but give me a break he was picking of Sanchize not exactly a good Quarterback yet.

  13. Scheer1852 says: Sep 7, 2010 9:57 PM

    Why not throw the ball to Houshmandzadeh and Mason? Maybe because they’ll be covered by Cromartie and Wilson.
    With Revis back the Jets defense isn’t just good, it’s dominant. Flacco won’t break 200 yards passing v.s. the Jets on monday night.
    Cromartie and Kyle Wilson are a huge improvement over Lito Shepard, Dwight Lowery, and Drew Coleman. The Jets #1 pass defense is that much better this year and the rest of the AFC better be ready for it. Flacco, Boldin, Housh, and Mason getvto experience it first hand in less than a week.
    By week 10 Florio will be writing post’s comparing this defense to the 2000 Ravens defense. Thats how good this defense is.

  14. jamaltimore says: Sep 7, 2010 10:04 PM

    I’m so sick of this Revis guy I wish he would go back to his island and shut up already. Forget the corners and the Ravens PRO BOWL wide outs for a minute. Rex’s defense get’s exposed in the middle of the field and with Heap playing the way he is the Jet’s can’t cover everyone. Or maybe Flacco will just dink it to RR who run around all over the place.
    Too Bad the Jets don’t have a qb who can expose the Ravens only weakness? Despite a whole offseason of crap from the Fatman about Revis the RAVENS will have more PICKS with their nobodies come monday night!

    ur an idiot cause darrelle comes up on a lot of run plays and Makes the tackles so stop talking out of ur ass and pretend like u’ve watched a jets game .. that is if u understand what football is in new delhi

    who actually won the “fat” contest? was Revis involved?

    all of this attention on revis and the jets secondary. i’d like to know who the ravens have playing corner? that’s a big weakness they may have there

  21. NFLMMAfan says: Sep 7, 2010 10:22 PM

    aec4 listend to a cute bedtime story from Big Rex then dreamed the JETS have 3 shutdown DBs. (Why not 4? or 5?)
    Prepare for a sad Tuesday in JETSville.

  22. AttackRaven says: Sep 7, 2010 10:23 PM

    The Jets defense is old and slow …just like the Steelers.
    Ray Rice will run for 200 yards and Flacco will hardly have to throw the ball.

  23. H4X0R says: Sep 7, 2010 10:26 PM

    jets / ravens is gonna be fun to watch.
    I wouldnt be suprised to see the ravens run hard at revis. I would make sure he knocked around a bit. Hard to play corner with a scambled noodle.

  24. NFLMMAfan says: Sep 7, 2010 10:29 PM

    habib,
    You haven’t been paying attention. The Ravens are hugely improved on offense. More passes than running plays. Get ready!

  27. pacstud says: Sep 7, 2010 10:35 PM

    Use the WR covered by ScareCro to block the safety on that side.
    Run at Cro.
    Gain yards.
    Repeat until game is over.
    Ravens win.

    You guys are going to like Wilson, but you should stop calling the other guy Cro and just start calling him O, as in ovahrated. He won’t last.

  29. Cushing Will Kill You says: Sep 7, 2010 10:53 PM

    To get Revis in shape:
    1) Lift gold bars.
    2) Run sprints from the ATM to the bank.
    3) Screw the medicine ball; he can do several series of chest passes with bags of quarters.
    4) Jog alongside the armored car for a few miles.

  30. Sactown49er says: Sep 7, 2010 10:53 PM

    The Jets are overrated. They were let in the playoffs last year twice. Rex Ryan has the biggest horsecrap spewing mouth I’ve ever seen or heard. Their defense is Top 10 but that’s it. 7-9, 8-8 seems about right. Revis is one huge mistake they’ll regret. This guy wanted $162M?!? N he came in fat and lazy?? Have fun underachieving this year

  31. jkiddrock says: Sep 7, 2010 10:54 PM

    I am a Bronco fan who lives in San Diego.
    I do hate the Chargers, but not like the Jets.
    I know Rex wants attention from his fat ass, so he opens his fat mouth a lot.
    I pray that this team loses every game, because of Fatty Rex. His profanity on the sidelines, smug character, and idiotic ramblings make me want to vomit.
    I will be hoping they fall apart, and he can go back to being a fat assistant coach.
    Lap Band didn’t help much did it, fat boy?

  32. clintcooper says: Sep 7, 2010 10:56 PM

    Darelle Revis looks kind of fat to me.

  33. jkiddrock says: Sep 7, 2010 10:59 PM

    I saw clips of Revis. He is going to get burned in the first game.
    Fat and slow is no way to go through life.
    Now I have to put him on the bench on my fantasy team. Can’t have an out-of-shape CB as a starter.
    I bet on Ravens in this game.
    Rex must have taken Revis out to a bunch of buffet’s over the summer.

  34. EY says: Sep 7, 2010 10:59 PM

    JVult: If he really felt that the team was so good he wouldn’t have flown to Florida to beg Revis to end his holdout.
    ———–
    Yeah, what an admission of failure!
    Rex Ryan actually got on an airplane and went to Florida where he talked his best player into returning to the team. I’m surprised he didn’t quit before going to such great lengths!
    It’s amazing how PFT comments consistently make YouTube comments look like a mensa meeting.

  35. SATAN says: Sep 7, 2010 11:09 PM

    Mevis or no Mevis…..Jets go 8-8 this year

  38. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Sep 7, 2010 11:33 PM

    @comment_submission_error
    Cro is definitely better than both Lowery and Sheppard, this cannot be disputed. If the Jets weakness in the secondary is Cromartie, than I’ll take that. He can’t tackle but he’s a good cover corner.

  39. NightTrainNeckTie says: Sep 8, 2010 12:04 AM

    Revis’ physical conditioning is going to be fine, if he’s a few pounds heavier it won’t matter, the real issue is going to be monday through wednesday when Revis can’t get out of bed because he just played in his first football game in 9 months. That’s where the term football shape comes from. Training camp is there for a reason, while there are exceptions like freak of nature Favre, Strahan and Emmit’s triple crown season back in ’93, professional football players(in fact players on every level) need training camp and preseason to get their bodies desensitized to the violence of the game. Even though Revis is a cover corner, he still makes plays in the running game and in the Rex Scheme, everybody gets dirt in their skirt, no matter what island you hide on. There’s going to be no way around it, Revis is going to be hurting next week but for 46 mill, I think he’ll get through it.

  40. ttommytom says: Sep 8, 2010 12:11 AM

    I’m not a Jet fan but puhleeze. This guy not only can play but he gets ‘it’. He deserved to get paid.
    Chauncey Washington played his guts out and he got cut. In that world, Revis needs to get as much money as possible and people that don’t get that still live with their parents and never paid a bill or had a single responsibility in their lives.
    It’s called reality and not some Gladiator love-fest that pervades social bounds…(and some of you hairless individuals). Get some and come back.
    Good luck at your GED reunion.
    So tired of morons in this world…

    I hate the AFC East; maybe that’s why I am posting again?
    Anyway, I wish I could re-bet my parlay for the weekend. Jets will not match the Ravens.
    My parlay:
    Green Bay covers 3 points.
    Denver covers the under 3 vs. Jacksonville.
    The Lions cover the 7 that they are underdogs against the Bears! Really 7 points!
    And, we all know that the Vikes can’t cover the 6 points afforded to them. Favre is wishing he never left Mississsipi.
    If you think I am crazy, please respond! If not, get your bets in on time!

  43. jkr says: Sep 8, 2010 12:33 AM

    JVult you are exactly right this fat piece of trash rex ryan is starting to make me sick! Just shut up your team is not that good and your qb sucks. Now I have to hear about this revis guy all the time? Good god! Revis this Revis that! He was the the new cup of tea last year, before that was Nahmdi and before that was Champ. Guess what Revis is not that great! Guess who had the least amount of passes thrown his way in the NFL last year it wasn’t Revis it was Nahmdi and they were on defense alot! So shut up go on a diet and have fun going 8-8 with your shitty QB!

  44. jcjets says: Sep 8, 2010 12:34 AM

  46. Albert040907 says: Sep 8, 2010 1:23 AM

    I wish a bunch of you retards knew the game of football instead of spewed nothing but hate. This is half the post on this site. Jets suck without revis, jets suck with revis oh and Rex Ryan is fat. Yeah and that leads to who will win the game. Bunch of idiots. Rex is fat has no way or shape in how he performs, or even the fact that when the game was more physical Deon sanders was able to pull of the same stunt and return an int for a td to win the first week game. But of course revis will pull a hammy and all of the sudden forget to tackle. The rest of the jet defense will just let Ray rice run at revis. Most of you fans just spew hate and really talk garbage about a team you probably haven’t even seen play. You just hate because you hate that the jets get talked about more and your fat Ryan jokes make you feel funny somehow. Oh a fat Ryan joke…….no one has ever used that before. Give the guy credit for doing something no coach will ever do. Have the balls to bitch at a players agent and his own ownership to get a team that he believes will fight for a super bowl. If anything all he has done is make sure he has the bet team on the field to make a strong run. Whether or not that happens will be decided on Sundays. But one things for sure, it gets a lot easier with revis island open for business

    @Sactown49er:
    Do you even watch football? The Jets don’t have a top 10 defense, they have a top 1 defense. In case you haven’t realized, defense wins championships. They have a much better secondary this year than they did last year, and now Kris Jenkins is back at nose tackle as well. 7-9 or 8-8 might be about right for your shitty 49ers, but the Jets will go above and beyond that. Read the article, Revis didn’t come in fat and lazy. He studied film even while he was holding out and is going to be a stud again this year. Have fun watching your Niners in yet another subpar season. Luckily for them the AFC West is weak and they might actually have a shot at winning their division.

  49. stone says: Sep 8, 2010 4:17 AM

    Hey stiller43! Your just another jealous bandwagon stooler fan who knows nothing about football! Old and slow? You people think the Jets D is going to shut us down? HA! We have 4 pro bowl wideouts in Boldin, Mason, Housh and Heap.
    So Housh and Mason are older so what? They can still ball, especially against lay ya, egg ya, can’t pay ya, Cromartie and Mr Rookie who hasn’t done squat Wilson! Oh and did I mention Three THREE Pro bowl quality backs! And Oh yeah, Mark Sanchez is the Quarterback!
    My Ravens will DESTROY the sorry ass Jets come Monday! Mark it! And I can’t wait till Fat Rex’s after game news conference! And Stiller43 we’ll see your sorry asses a few weeks after.

    @Dangeralert…
    I been watching football since you were in your cow of a moms womb son so back up son…Do YOU even watch football… the Niners arent in the AFC West boy, get your facts straight.
    The Jets Def is the strongest part of their team but they won’t finish first this year. S.F will finish stronger defensively AND all-together for that matter.
    Have fun watching Dirty Sanchez drop goose egg stat lines all year… and your coach lose his mind because of it. You guys are like the Redskins gettin all those “ALL-PROs” lets see how that works. As far as Revis goes… he’s not even the best DB in the league. dude in Oakland is better and has been doin it longer. If Revis was on another squad you’d be sayin the same thing

    Only scored td’s vs 2nd and 3rds in preseason.
    Unless Revis gets 3 pick 6’s, I don’t think the NY Slapdicks will score more than 12 points?
    Sanchez will have to throw the ball….Advantage Ravens.
    Flacco has a bunch of new weapons Boldin and TJ….Ray Rice. Oh Oh…Advatage Ravens.

    Nothing wrong with that, yet, but I want to see what happens if your team has a bad year.
    All that big talk is great if you back it up. I don’t think that’s going to happen though.
    Btw, what’s up with all the Jets fans in this post, you’d think it was the special olympics or something.

    something tells me that if revis gets 2 pick-sixes the “slapdicks” will crack 12 points. and very astute point about preseason productivity — those points carry forward into the regular season, right?

  55. Bullet six says: Sep 8, 2010 9:43 AM

    There is a reason that the Ravens are favorites to win against the Jets in their own stadium : Sanchez. Revis can’t play QB for Jets. Jets fans really are idiotic if they think Revis can win a game for them. Cover all of the Ravens WR’s all they want, Ray Rice will run it down your throat since you can’t stack the box.
