Jerod Mayo thinks Revis is faking

From Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo, via WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan Show by way of PatsFan.com, comes an interesting theory that we thought was used only by aging, gray-haired quarterbacks who hope to be perceived either as heroes or heroic.

Mayo thinks Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis really isn’t injured, and that the injury is being used as an advance excuse for being stranded on his own island — or as the basis for trumpeting his performance despite being hobbled in the event that Revis shuts down Randy Moss on Sunday.

“Look, he’s healthy, he’s 100 percent healthy,” Mayo said.  “I’m not buying into that.”

Mayo thinks that the Jets don’t want the Patriots to know Revis is completely healthy.

“I wouldn’t want anybody to know,” Mayo said.  “[I]t’s just a decoy.  So then everybody can be like, even if he goes out and has a great
game, everybody will be like, ‘Oh, he’s the greatest, he has a tender
hamstring. . . .  I’m
not buying into that.”

It’s good to see that Mayo has become so damn cynical at such a young age.  And it’s hard to disagree with him.

  1. Lets just hope he sticks by his statement and doesnt puss out and say the “out of context” crap or apologize and reword, etc.

  2. At least, that’s what the secret video cameras planted at the Jets’ facility have told him, anyway.

  3. He’s a cynical as a certain lawyer is for a grey beard QB who ancient in NFL terms and has had a doctor confirm that the grey beard in question has injury issues.
    It’s nice that things are so easy at PFT that Florio never has to “sandbag”.

  4. I was thinking the same thing….just a ploy by Rex & Revis in hopes to have Brady try to throw the ball more to Randy & not take advantage of their weak side DB’S….

  5. He is probably right. No matter what happens his image does not get tarnished. He will have nagging injuries before the other Pats game and both games against Marshall also.

  6. I typed this comment while eating a sandwich. Doesn’t that make it even more impressive?
    If 25 year old Revis can’t cover 33 year old Moss, then he may not be as “pretty bleeping good” as Rex Ryan said.

  7. Sounds about right…when Moss torches his ass he’ll have an excuse. Really, Rex Ryan is a terrible coach…Jets might want to dump his butt now!

  8. Funny.. that sentiment sounds REALLY familiar!! LOL

    ….or, he could be setting himself up to be the “hero”, or if not, “heroic”. Revis now has himself a built in excuse if Randy Moss has a big game against him!

    Pussy.

  10. As players they definitely should treat the situation as though he is 100 percent healthy, whether he is or not.
    If he’s not, it will naturally come out in the game. THEN you exploit it. Until then, you assume he’s 100 percent.
    Non-Story.

  11. Revis is scared of Brady and the hair. He’s setting up himself the way Favre does. To be the “hero” if he plays well or to be a “warrior” if he doesnt play as well. Either way, the hair is coming to Jersey and that could mean trouble for the jets defense whether Revis Island’s Hammys hurt or not. Any1 else have a feeling that Moss is gonna burn someone for a td?

  12. Given the Patriots and Bellicheats own penchant for lying, cheating and playing games with the injury reports, it not hard to see why or how he could become so cynical!

  13. At least, that’s what the secret video cameras planted at the Jets’ facility have told him, anyway.

    Hurricane Brady is moving towards the Greater NYC area and exepected to make landfall Sunday afternoon. This is a Category 5 storm and is likely to leave no signs of life on “Revis Island”.

  15. Why dont you worry about shedding that mediocre label from your game ,instead of talking shit about the guy who’s the best at his ,you F’n dumb-ass … when Greene is running by you this week be sure to to due your usual OLE’

  18. I get a little nauseous every time I see an article is “by Mike Florio”. Then by the end of it when he makes his obnoxious biased comments I finally throw up.

  19. The Jets know they’ve done way more talking than they can possibly come through on…they’ll spend the whole season building excuses, this is just the first of many. Regardless of their record this season though, once March gets here they’ll start acting like they are the best team in football again.

  20. If he isn’t really hurt, I don’t think they’re saying it to pump up his “legend” but it could be to get the pats to throw his way.
    And hasn’t Brady been on the injury list since 2006 for a bad shoulder?

  21. Funny how Florio and that other idiot hate the Jets so much. We don’t like Athletes and coaches speaking in cliche’s. But then when we get people like the Jets speaking form the heart bold and brash, morons like Florio bash them…

  22. Wow you guys are morons. Revis only shut down Moss the last FOUR times he faced him. You guys honestly think he is scared to go up against him again? Lets see what your excuses will be when Revis shuts down Moss despite his injury. Unlike Moss, Revis doesn’t make excuses. Last time Moss blamed Revis having help for him getting his @ss shut down. Lets see what Moss says this time when he can’t beat an injured CB in single coverage.

  23. Nacho is the biggest clown out here..has been most vocal of fraud jet fans.
    Mayo’s comments make alot of sense…but if true, kinda makes you think jets getting desperate here.
    Amazing how 31 other teams want to see jets get lunch handed to them..Some people don’t know when to shut up & play football.
    Win SOMETHING before bravado starts.
    Nacho, you were sperm [ could have been any number of nY Mexicans] last time jets Won anything.

  25. jets31…I did an autodraft…ended up with that stiff green….I cut his azz…are you efing kidding…that stiff will be on the bench for the rest of the year!

  26. I would like to see Mayo fully recovered from last years issues and becoming the big time play maker Pats fans expect.
    Playing the Jets “all mouth – no trousers” game is not when I want to hear his name.

  27. As a Jets fan, it’s really great to see all of this hatred from other players and especially PFT.
    Typically the Jets didn’t matter, but now they clearly do.
    Thank you.
    Jets will still finish around 10-6 and be in the playoffs whether they lose this game or not.

  28. Revis has shut down moss. But don’t forget last year when Moss scored on a 4 yard play WITH Revis covering him. What did Revis say about that?.. I believe it was something along the lines of..the pass was “indefensible”. Nice excuse. The fact is even if Moss has only 1 recieving yard, if that 1 yard is a 1 yard TD, then Moss did his job and Revis didnt. And if that TD leads to a Pats win, Revis didn’t get it done.
    Brady Hair. Out.

  29. I didn’t realize anybody had actually considered the possibility that there was anything wrong with Revis. I would say this was an immediately recognizable, transparent red herring on the part of the Jets, but I don’t even think they were trying to actually fool anyone into thinking Revis is hurt. They’re just playing games like the Pats do with Brady’s shoulder. Its all very wink-wink and shouldn’t be taken seriously.

  30. Last year it was Moss making excuses if I remember correctly. Revis already proved he can own Moss why would he make up an injury to seem heroic? The whole thing is ridiculous and Mayo is an idiot for giving the best corner in the league a reason to play inspired football. Not a Jets fan, but you have to recognize someone this dominant.

  31. Brady against the Jets:
    13-3
    3587yds
    18TD 8INT
    This year will be totally different though. Seriously.

  32. Of course we don’t even know what form Revis is in right now because the ravens didn’t test him at all. Why go against him, even if he is at 75% when the other’s on the team suck so bad and either give up big plays or cause penalties.
    So let Revis claim he “shut down” Moss with an injured hammy, don’t throw at him even once, burn the others in the backfield and roll up 50 points on the Jets.
    Yeah, I think the Pats will have the last laugh all the while Revis and Ryan will be all over themselves on how good Revis is.

    Mediocre? MEDIOCRE????
    Three Super Bowls, and an 18-1 season in the past 10 seasons, and you’re calling New England mediocre.
    On their BEST day in the past 10 seasons, the Jets and their fans WISH they were as “mediocre” as New England. You sound like the kind of moron who buys into this Rex Ryan flapping-his-jaws crap.

  34. Dennis & Callahan were asking leading quesitons about the Revis injury. Mayo responded that he wouldn’t want the other team to know if he had a problem with his hamstring. Revis has gotten help from safeties with Moss. But didn’t Moss put up 6 against him in the last game the teams played in Foxboro? It was much different in week 2 last year when Welker was out.

  35. All you haters wish you had Darrelle Revis on your team with your shitty secondaries. You wish you had a shut down corner and to top it all off you wish you had a coach like Ryan. Dude makes the game interesting. Regardless of how much he talks, if your team don’t want to go and win the superbowl then why the **** are you playing.

  36. Revis went full on in practice today ,he wasnt held out of anything ,so there you Mf’er ‘s go , this is no longer a story ,…………………………………………….Looking in to this one ,Im not sure NE can the physicalness that going to be laid on them sunday ,we all know Cincy has been about as soft as it comes for 20 yrs ..and the last team that Ne played before that Kicked thier asses up and down the field being physical ,were going to it them and hard come sunday ,I dont t think there built to handle that type of game….

  37. @ Richm2257
    I believe Nyjets31 was referring to Mayo, not the Pats. Take a deep breath, count to 10… now continue your Jets hating.

  38. here are some facts
    The J E T S beat the Pats in week 2 in Brady’s 2nd game back from ACL surgery
    In the second meeting the Patriots blew the J E T S out
    The J E T S made the playoffs because Indy and the Bungles laid down giving them two undeserved wins this after their HC told the media the J E T S were eliminated from the playoffs.
    The J E T S played 2 great playoff games before being exposed by the Colts
    Someone please explain to me why they were perseaon SB favorites

  40. who do the Pats have up front that is going to block Kris Jenkins?
    i think he is the difference maker…..Jets 31- Pats 10.

  41. It is being done so when the Jets double cover Moss and help Revis over the top they have cover.
    Revis never covered Moss Raiders True Man on Man ever. Revis knows it, the Jets know it and Moss knows it.
    Only corner to shut down Moss 0 catches true man coverage was Charles Woodson early in his career in a game in Oakland.
    Revis is not even the second best corner in the NFL. Moss will eat him alive and the Jets fall to 0-2 on the year, REAL WORLDBEATERS lol.

  45. This is the first and only time I would ever agree with something a Patriot or one of their fans said.
    Hey Jets fans, wouldn’t it be hilarious if last year was just a fluke and Revis actually sucks? If he is all that, why wasn’t he guarding Boldin as he torched the Jets up. And Cromartie sucks, he sucked as a Charger and now he sux for you. Happy Friday!

  46. Nyjets31,
    are you high. The last time the Jets played NE they got dismantled in NE.
    Can’t handle the physicalness of the Jets??
    That powerful offense led by Taco Sanchez has the whole NFL very afraid of that offensive arsenal.
    Jets fans already making excuses.
    Just End The Season, it was fun while it lasted for the Hard Knocks red headed step children who play in the New Giants Stadium.
    Newark Jets Football 41 years and counting

  47. 12 will throw at whoever is covered by cromagnon or the kid. 3 step drop stops the blitz. Gronk will drag someone into the endzone and bulldoze while blocking on the bubble screen. Looking forward to whining about the refs from the Jets fans.

    Actually the IR is going to block Jenkins for the Pats so no need for Voellmer and company to worry about that.

  52. nyjets31 – only a mouth breathing Jets fan would get so bent out of shape about some comments on the internet, and one out of every five or six posts in this thread is you getting bent out of shape about something and/or saying something completely ludicrous.
    I do understand that since the Jets aren’t a real football organization, and so their fans aren’t real football fans. But, judging by some of the stuff on here, they are also just flat-out simple people. Everyone says that the Giants fans are “white collar” and Jets fans are “blue collar”, but now I understand that they meant Giants fans are literate and graduated from high school, and Jets fan all work at grocery stores bagging groceries and rounding up shopping carts. You guys are worse than Steeler fans, and I didn’t think that was possible.

    LMaO. No, I do not wish my team had a coach like Rex Ryan. Not unless I want to become a fan of the most hated team in the NFL.
    It’s incredible how many “I hate the Pats but I want them to kill the Jets” comments I’ve read on here this week. You can thank Sexy Rexy for that.
    Having said all that, here’s to a good game with no injuries on either side.

  54. ol’ Rex has written a check and gone out the back door and left Schottenheimer alone at the bar – guess who gets left holdin’ the bag? Hint, the person weighs less than 350.

    =====================================
    Nobody… since Jenkins is on IR. Pay any attention to the NFL, or even the jets for that matter? It’s amazing how many comments, boast and predictions are offered by the completely clueless. Of course, that’s what makes reading this gibberish so much fun. Got to be a Jet fan, if not, at least he’s got the IQ.
