Rex Ryan: Darrelle Revis is the best player in the NFL

revis

As Jets coach Rex Ryan was detailing what stood out to him while watching film of his team’s playoff win over the Colts, he singled out one player’s performance above all others.

“The play of Darrelle Revis,” Ryan said.

According to Ryan, Revis wasn’t just the best player on the field in Indianapolis on Saturday: He’s the best player in the NFL.

“Quite honestly, he’s the best player in football,” Ryan said, in comments distributed by the team. “That is what you saw out there. Hold Reggie Wayne, who led the league in catches, I think he had 111 catches, to one catch for one yard. That tells you how good Darrelle Revis is. I know he’s probably not going to win the Defensive Player of the Year award, but the impact he has is amazing. We were able to do some coverages during the game where we actually played man-coverage strictly on his side regardless of who the receiver was and roll their coverage away from it. You only do that if you have Darrelle Revis. He’s an amazing once-in-a-life-time player and we took advantage of him.”

Just as Peyton Manning ignored Wayne all day because Revis locked him down, Ryan expects Revis to have a similar effect on Tom Brady when the Jets play the Patriots Sunday.

“This week will be the same deal because when people see [Revis] over there, they don’t even throw to him,” Ryan said. “They realize that that guy isn’t open. I don’t care who the receiver is, he is not going to be open. We know that and we’ll try to take advantage of it again this week.”

And that advantage, in Ryan’s view, makes Revis the best player in football — better even than Manning or Brady.

    Ryan just can’t help himself, can he?

    This Ass-Clown will never win a title, because……well, because he’s an ass-clown.

  2. mistrezzrachael says: Jan 10, 2011 5:30 PM

    Ummm…he can cover well…but anyone ever seen him make a tackle on RB…or in open field???…Guy has Deion disease.

    Though will say on Mon night game vs NE, he did get a hand on Branch’s TD….Sorry guys, Revis leads league in whiffs on running plays.

    Rexy is losing it….NE makes him incoherant.

  3. geezohman says: Jan 10, 2011 5:31 PM

    (for the Cleveland Browns fans….)

    who drafted Darrelle #1 in the draft??????

    Mangini,

    who took the herm edwards 4-12 team to 10-6 and the playoffs… yep… Mangini….

    too bad Holmgren pushed Jake Delhomme on him

  4. scoob766 says: Jan 10, 2011 5:35 PM

    God why did this guy go on a diet? He needs to keep food in his mouth so he can’t talk.

  5. 6ball says: Jan 10, 2011 5:35 PM

    .

    Pay him

    .

  6. bravin4evr says: Jan 10, 2011 5:37 PM

    that’s really interesting. who will he cover this weekend? brady throws to everyone and his receivers are healthy. oh I know…….he will cover all of the reciever’s at once…..lol

  7. charliedamon says: Jan 10, 2011 5:37 PM

    Unless Fatboy Ryan has the technology to clone Revis’s foot DNA and clone him 3 more times, they’re screwed….Good luck covering Welker, Branch, Gronkowski, and Hernandez at the same time, Penis…I mean Revis

  8. nathanscottphillips says: Jan 10, 2011 5:38 PM

    Take Revis out and team re-schemes and moves on.

    Take Brady or Manning out and the ship likely sinks.

  9. 3footballdudes says: Jan 10, 2011 5:41 PM

    Revis isn’t even the best CB in the league let alone the best defender in the league, so how can he be the best player in the league?

  10. mccabed says: Jan 10, 2011 5:42 PM

    Reggie Wayne was right to flip out because he didn’t get any looks. Revis is legit, but c’mon, you have to throw at him. It’s not like he picks balls off. And Rex, stop mixing, serving, and drinking your own kool-aid.

  11. igottz5onit says: Jan 10, 2011 5:43 PM

    No, he might be the best cornerback but I can name five better players off the top of my head:
    1. Tom brady, and I HATE him
    2. Troy polamalu
    3. Peyton Manning
    4. James Harrison
    5. Nnadamukong

    He is a great shut down corner, but to say he is the best player in football is just more crapspew from that lardass who doesn’t know when to shut up. Just like his old man.

  12. wte1 says: Jan 10, 2011 5:43 PM

    The best player in football has three rings.

    How many does Revis have?

  13. loytomaki says: Jan 10, 2011 5:43 PM

    He might be the best player on that team, maybe. He is good, but it reminds me of a team with horrible defense that can’t stop the run, often times their pass defense looks good in the stat column because no one bothers throwing the ball if they can get 5 yards a carry. Revis is good, why throw to him if the rest of your secondary can be had? His stats will look amazing, giving up very few plays, but if he is not getting the picks by baiting QB’s I can’t see how he is maximizing his presence on the field.

  14. promin1 says: Jan 10, 2011 5:44 PM

    OMG will somebody shut this a-hole up!! I can’t take it anymore. This guy never shuts the F up!

  15. snnyjcbs says: Jan 10, 2011 5:45 PM

    Here we go again with they do not target Revis, 109 ball tossed Revis way in 2009 alone does not hold true to what they want you to believe.

    Hell Nnamdi has not had 109 balls tossed his way in all these years COMBINEDM 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Wow are you kidding me?, no that is a Shut Down Corner.

    Nnamdi has not allowed a TD this season and has only allowed 10 receptions all year. If Revis was a Shut Down Corner like Nnamdi he would be paid at least close to what Nnamdi earns don’t you think?

    New England and Tom Brady will Eat the Jets Alive this week and if they think that last loss was bad you may not want to watch this one.

  16. twistajt says: Jan 10, 2011 5:46 PM

    So basically Darrelle Revis let Rex Ryan play with his feet…

  17. borisbulldog says: Jan 10, 2011 5:46 PM

    It’s gonna be fun this Sun when the Pats win and shut this fat tub o’lard’s mouth down!

  18. xpensivewinos says: Jan 10, 2011 5:47 PM

    He’s the best player in the NFL?

    So what would the score have been the last time the Jets played the Patriots if they didn’t have the best player in the NFL to “keep it close?”

  19. thejuddstir says: Jan 10, 2011 5:47 PM

    and Rex thinks he’s the best headcoach in the NFL………………..I would rather listen to B. Favre waffle for another year than to listen to T-Rex for another minute. When is this guy going to figure out that no one gives any serious consideration to the dribble that comes out of his mouth. Rex could say that the world is going to end tomorrow and the stupid ass media would rush to publish it.

  20. parasonic says: Jan 10, 2011 5:47 PM

    Most people will probably disagree, but I think a true shutdown corner is more valuable than an elite QB. I’m not saying that a shutdown corner alone wins games and yes I realize that the QB is the cornerstone of today’s NFL, but the shutdown corner is a much more exclusive club than the elite QB. Commentators always talk about how difficult it is to score inside the 10 because the field size is greatly reduced. So with that logic a shutdown corner blocks out a large section of the entire field. Again, I’m not saying they win games, but if your team is already good AND you have that player your chance of winning is greatly improved.

  21. bluvayner says: Jan 10, 2011 5:48 PM

    Good job Rex…….get ready for another holdout.

  22. mvp43 says: Jan 10, 2011 5:49 PM

    Wow, his foot fungus has spread to his brain…

  23. phinfan says: Jan 10, 2011 5:49 PM

    Anyone else getting tired of Rex Cryan?

    I sure am

  24. lowleadman says: Jan 10, 2011 5:49 PM

    You know, Rexy worries me, making the pronouncment that this is between him and Belichek, that this is a personal issue between he and Billy. I understand wanting to win the game and being confident in doing so, but this guy said he would do anything to win, and the coach who allows coaches to try to harm bypassing opposing players could easily tell his players to get Brady at all costs. Hit him late, don’t worry about any fines as Rexy has your back.

    Commish, I hope you pay special attention to this. Fatboy is over the top, and his true sportsmanship verses winning at all costs has me concerned.

  25. giablommi says: Jan 10, 2011 5:50 PM

    Nothing to see here, move along…

  26. bighairyman says: Jan 10, 2011 5:50 PM

    Rex is probably still crying about Charles Woodson being named DPOY last year…

  27. mswravens says: Jan 10, 2011 5:51 PM

    G-d I can’t wait until this fat ass loudmouth goes away. Yeah, no INTs or sacks or forced fumbles & this guy is the best player in the NFL…not to mention no TDs scored or created. He’s a great corner…but he’s a corner…’nuf said. Hell, I think the absence of Jim Leonhard affected this squad more than the absence of Revis. Is it just me, or does Rex keep running his pie hole simply to distract himself from eating…or sticking a foot in it, literally???

  28. profootballwalk says: Jan 10, 2011 5:52 PM

    As long as Revis plays man to man, you just throw the ball away from him, which takes HIM out of the game. Question is, can the rest of the Jets beat Brady? That’s the difference between a great corner and a great D-lineman or linebacker. A shutdown corner only shuts down his own man.

  29. lowleadman says: Jan 10, 2011 5:55 PM

    Maybe Revis can cover the Reggie Waynes and Randy Mosses of the NFL, but he can’t cover two guys at once. Everyone on the Pats offense is a weapon. Three tight ends that can kill you. Three little white guys like Welker, Woodhead and Edelman running across the middle. Oh, and we almost forgot Brady’s favorite traget, Branch. Hey, how about Taylor Price and Brandon Tate? Cannot cover them all. Pick your poison. Brady will be like a razor at the Razor and will cut apart the prima donna loudmouths once and for all.

    64-7

  30. saberstud75 says: Jan 10, 2011 5:57 PM

    Rex Ryan disqualified himself as a judge on “the best _____ in the NFL” when he said the Jets were the best team in the NFL.

    If he nominated the best cheese steak sandwich in the NFL I would take that as gospel.

  31. nflwatcher says: Jan 10, 2011 5:57 PM

    Just rip up his new contract and give him another extension, right Rex?

  32. randolph32 says: Jan 10, 2011 5:59 PM

    Here’s betting Bill figures something out to offset Reavis….should be a hell of a game.

  33. blackcatnfl says: Jan 10, 2011 5:59 PM

    I’m confused, wasn’t Revis burned on a 70 yard td, or was that some other Revis on the team?

  34. leftysmoke says: Jan 10, 2011 6:03 PM

    And if Caldwell grows a brain and doesn’t give the Jet’s a free timeout, Ryan and the Jets go into a shell, the Colts move on and Revis’ name isn’t even mentioned. If the Patriots let the Jets win, let’s just go ahead and mark the game down as the biggest CHOKE in playoff history. Next to the Saints, of course.

    The Patriots have no reason to lose this game. They’re a much better team with a much better coach. It’s really that simple.

  35. obamaczarofussa says: Jan 10, 2011 6:04 PM

    Rex really likes revis, so he’ll probably get an invite to use his wifes feet while he takes the pic’s!

  36. bigbluefan1 says: Jan 10, 2011 6:04 PM

    Where was he during that 49-3 ass kicking

    Over all good weekend got rid of the dog killer and the team that rebuilt a city

    Now for this week lets hope rex feet walk away and the Ravens are gone the bears are who we know they are (not that good) and good bye to the falcons.

  37. all4patriots says: Jan 10, 2011 6:05 PM

    Then tell us who Revis covered in the 45-3 game, because just about EVERYONE was getting open and Tom was spreading it all around.

    Revis doesn’t cover short shifty guys going over the middle as well as he covers speed guys who go down the field and give him just one or two moves.

    Welker and Branch can make him look silly.

  38. madsqgrdn says: Jan 10, 2011 6:05 PM

    Youre taking his remarks out of context and reforming them to make you’re own headline. What he said was that on the field Saturday Revis looked like the best player in the NFL. He didn’t say unequivocally that he is the best player in the NFL. What he said wass the way he shut down Reggie Wayne ..he looked that way. Big difference..

  39. Dynasty says: Jan 10, 2011 6:07 PM

    Pats lay a massive beating down on the Jets this week. Ryan is going to get his team embarrassed.

  40. kisstherings says: Jan 10, 2011 6:10 PM

    Ryan is such a moron. Really.

    Revis just held out all year in a contract despute….a despute justified because Ryan told anybody that would listent to him that Revis was the best CB in the NFL….as many times as anyone would listen to him. He lost all leverage in the negotiations.

    Shorlty afterward…..Revis said he might hold out again in 2 years when his gets tiered back down. (Something the Jets say he said he wouldn’t do)….So now this moron Ryan tells everyone that Revis is the best PLAYER in the NFL. Now he will want Brady/Manning money…and sit out all year till he gets it.

    Idiot Ryan

  41. lbijake says: Jan 10, 2011 6:11 PM

    Ryan is so bad that he makes you root for Belichick, a feat that I thought was almost impossible away from New England,

  42. ny82jy says: Jan 10, 2011 6:12 PM

    The foot comments and fat comments are getting pretty old two. I mean it’s funny that’s all you guys got to say about Ryan and the jets. Same old jokes while the jets keep winning and backing up the smack talk. Keep hatin cause Rex is gonna shove his FOOT up Brady and belicheats a** Sunday!!

  43. bebopa says: Jan 10, 2011 6:14 PM

    I hope the Pats with this weekend not because im a fan but because it will shut this idiots mouth

  44. blackglass3 says: Jan 10, 2011 6:16 PM

    Love or loathe the Patriots and Bill Belichick, everyone who is not a Jets fan MUST be cheering for the Patriots this Sunday. This guy NEEDS to be shut up.

  45. ny82jy says: Jan 10, 2011 6:16 PM

    Hey leftysmoke where exactly are the pats better than the jets besides Qb? the jets have a much better d better receicvers and rbs and a comparable o line? Just don’t see it. But the pats will kill the jets right? Just like they did in wk 2 right? New game scrap the first two. Well see who’s better Sunday

  46. johntonioholmes says: Jan 10, 2011 6:18 PM

    I don’t even know if Revis is the best player on that team.

    Call pass interference on him when he commits it and let’s see how good he becomes.

    As far as I’m concerned, he’s a shade better than Ike Taylor. Taylor doesn’t have to cheat to cover his receivers and he still does a good job.

    And Joe Haden is already as good as Revis.

  47. rexryanisablowhard says: Jan 10, 2011 6:21 PM

    My nname says it all

  48. kniddynamite says: Jan 10, 2011 6:28 PM

    Not exactly sure why everybody’s acting like holding Wayne to 1 catch is that shocking news. Manning was too-easily dissuaded from throwing to Marvin Harrison come the postseason back when he was their #1 WR, and now it’s happening with Wayne.

  49. ratedrsuperstar1331 says: Jan 10, 2011 6:29 PM

    Revis may not even be the best cornerback in his division. Devin McCourty has outplayed him this year and the kid is a rookie. Plus, I’m not even sure Revis is the best player on the Jets, let alone in the entire league. Rex better keep his mouth shut or the 45-3 score from the Monday night game a while back may seem like child’s pay in comparison.

  50. 0marooney says: Jan 10, 2011 6:32 PM

    “This week will be the same deal because when people see Revis over there, they don’t even throw to him. They realize that that guy isn’t open. I don’t care who the receiver is, he is not going to be open.”

    If only Rex would shut his mouth for one week would people respect this guy. Sure he’s a decent coach, but as we all know, nothing is guaranteed in the NFL, and until Rex realizes that and stops making obnoxious claims about his team and players, he will never succeed in the NFL.

  51. thenewenglandpatriots12 says: Jan 10, 2011 6:32 PM

    I wish he would just get twitter so I wouldnt have to listen all of Rex’s feelings about football.

  52. richm2256 says: Jan 10, 2011 6:35 PM

    At the rate this moron is spouting bu–lls–t, this is going to grow very old, very fast.

    As others have pointed out, revis was on the field for the 45-3 beating Tom Brady’s offense laid on the Yets defense.

    Where was your “best defensive player in the NFL” in THAT game, Rex?

    You think Revis can cover Welker? No problem, let’s see him cover Welker and Branch. How about Welker, Branch, and Gronkowski? Is he good enough to cover Welker, Branch, Gronkowski and Crumpler? How about Welker, Branch, Gronkowski, Crumpler and Edelman?

    I’m only half way through the Patriots receivers corps….. need I go on?

    Revis is good, not great, and as good as he is, he can’t be everywhere. Think Cromartie is going to cover those guys? He didn’t last time.

    Somebody put out a plate of donuts to shut this clown up.

  53. broncosfaninkc says: Jan 10, 2011 6:35 PM

    Champ Bailey enough said, not even going to mention either of those bums names

  54. frankvzappa says: Jan 10, 2011 6:35 PM

    thank god the jets’ season will be over this weekend…Revis is a little bitch…its been mentioned, but really, how much of an ungrateful, arrogant scumbag do you have to be to threaten to hold out again days after getting paid to end a holdout? Revis will be like Moss in a few years as his skills and speed decline…and anyway, Brady has over a half dozen good players to throw to, and the guy cant be everywhere…

  55. mrcmos says: Jan 10, 2011 6:36 PM

    Both LardAss and Revis are

    OVERATED !

  56. xdirtybirdzx says: Jan 10, 2011 6:38 PM

  58. 8man says: Jan 10, 2011 6:43 PM

    What a great coach Rex is. He shows incredible support for his players. He’s a fantastic advocate for his team. I’d love to play for this guy.

    Do you ever hear BB, Tomlin, Harbaugh or Coughlin give any of their players this kind of over-the-top, ringing endorsement? I hope Revis appreciates the love his coach is showing him.

    Rex is the man!

    Honey, another slice of humble pie….

  59. tiffpats4eva says: Jan 10, 2011 6:45 PM

    If I were Revis, I wouldn’t get on the field until they paid me $10,000,000.

  60. sanchize6 says: Jan 10, 2011 6:47 PM

    lol @ kisstherings

    “Ryan is such a moron. Really.

    Revis just held out all year in a contract despute….a despute justified because..”

    Funny you calling Rex a moron and you spell “dispute” as “despute”.. good one!

    ——————-

    And mistrezzrachael.. probably the stupidest post here out of them all actually:

    “Ummm…he can cover well…but anyone ever seen him make a tackle on RB…or in open field???…Guy has Deion disease.”

    That statement couldn’t be ANY further from the truth. You clearly just have no idea what you are talking about at all, or you are just a blind Jets-hater. Revis is an excellent tackler and sticks his nose in there whenever the ball is on his side of the field. It’s not his fault his tackle numbers are low this year because teams avoid his side of the field like the plague.

  61. possiblecabbage says: Jan 10, 2011 6:47 PM

    This is kind of a ridiculous statement. What’s your metric for establishing “best”?

    If it’s “has the most impact on a football game” then obviously that title should go to a player who is around the ball more, like a quarterback, running back, or defensive player who factors into every single play.

    If it’s “is the most perfect example of a player at his position” then that title should probably go to a longsnapper who has snapped perfectly all year. Revis has allowed at least one pass to be completed against him this year right? Then he’s not perfect.

    Regardless, even trying to establish a “best” in the NFL is an asinine thing to do.

  62. ttommytom says: Jan 10, 2011 6:49 PM

    MadSqGrdn said it right about THAT game. It’s all out of context.

    Revis is an incredible player that ANYONE would want on their team.

  63. boblavoie says: Jan 10, 2011 6:51 PM

    Revis is the best player in the NFL – the Jets are the best team in the NFL – The Jets will be in the Super Bowl AND the pigs will be out flying Sunday afternoon in New England.

    Give us all a break will you Rexo.

    Rex Ryan: “Quite honestly, he’s the best player in football.”

  65. cliverush says: Jan 10, 2011 6:54 PM

    A couple of items from the Colts vs. the NY Rats. (Mgmt.) The Colts did not have a Tight End or a slot receiver on the field who was ready for a playoff game. Manning was looking into an area where Dallas Clarke would always be open against the LB or where his slot would beat the coverage for a quick slant. To the credit of the Jets, Revis and Smith, they forced the Colts to rely on a running game that also does not exist. These are problems the Patriots and Brady are not faced with. Deion Branch and Arron Hernandez are banged up a bit but the rest of the offensive skill position players are good to go. The Jets are playing a team ready to match them in physical play and have healthy players ready. Jim Caldwell made a serious mistake in the game calling a time out at the end. Manning must be a good team player to question the TO.

  66. tiffpats4eva says: Jan 10, 2011 6:55 PM

    @sanchize6,

    Agreed. Revis stuck his nose in long enough to get run over by Benjarvis.

  67. scottnrsv says: Jan 10, 2011 7:04 PM

    “mistrezzrachael”
    are you serious? have you every actually watched a jets game? The guy can tackle….well. Cromartie is scared of contact, not Revis.

  68. commoncents says: Jan 10, 2011 7:05 PM

    Revis doesn’t cover Tom. Revis covers one of the many Receiver’s that the Patriot’s have. Pick one. Who cares. We can make Revis a non-factor, you can’t do that with Tom.

    Who’s the best best player in the league???

  69. dieharddolfan6493 says: Jan 10, 2011 7:07 PM

    Patriots please shut this guy up

  70. harrisonhits2 says: Jan 10, 2011 7:21 PM

    LOL keep it up Rex. When Revis wants yet another new contract this offseason because, you know, 16 mil a year isn’t enough for the “best player in football”, the Jets owners will know who’s responsible.

  71. sanchize6 says: Jan 10, 2011 7:21 PM

    “tiffpats4eva says:
    @sanchize6,

    Agreed. Revis stuck his nose in long enough to get run over by Benjarvis.”

    Oooooo you’re so witty and clever! What a hilarious thing for you to say! I mean sure it’s completely retarded and not true and has nothing to do with anything.. but whatever you say! If that makes you feel better about yourself, saying Benjarvis (who stinks) ran over Revis.. then do what you gotta do.

  72. sanchize6 says: Jan 10, 2011 7:24 PM

    richm256:

    “Revis is good not great”

    lol way to discredit yourself there, pal. Just make yourself look like an idiot, that’s fine with me.

    And yeah he was on the field during the 45-3 game.. yet he didn’t give up a catch. Somehow that means he isn’t great and it was because of him they gave up those points? You shouldn’t talk about things you have no idea about, and clearly football and cornerbacks are 2 things you don’t have a clue on. You should stick to things that I assume you do know about.. like Tom Brady’s hair and wearing your pink #12 jersey.

  73. ladybucsandsteelersnut says: Jan 10, 2011 7:35 PM

    Rex’s trash talking is getting beyond annoying. I can’t stand the Patriots, but almost want to root for them to win, just to shut him the hell up. I say almost, but I really want the Jets to win, & of course the Steelers to win (over the Ravens) – then the Steelers can shut him the hell up on Super Bowl Sunday.

    Here’s hopin’ !

  74. johntonioholmes says: Jan 10, 2011 7:42 PM

    Revis can’t cover a receiver legally.

  75. 3yrsnfl says: Jan 10, 2011 7:45 PM

    In NY, the Jets knocked the Yankees off the back page. It’s all about entertainment. Why do all the Patriot fans feel so compelled to comment on the Jets? They are watching their every move. I say, “Great!”. Keep talking, Keep watching. Keep the Jets in the headlines. Feel free to comment… some more.

  76. dhcundertow says: Jan 10, 2011 7:59 PM

    As much as I dislike this douche, I have to agree with him. But the bad news is the Patriots have a lot more weapons than just one 111 catch guy. I mean no respect to Reggie Waynem, but the Patriots have more playmakers all the way around on both sides of the ball.

    are you serious? have you every actually watched a jets game? The guy can tackle….well. Cromartie is scared of contact, not Revis.

    Yes, I have watched jets play alot…Seeing them lose and shutting them up is as good as it gets….amazing how a lower echelon franchise does so much to attract attention to themselves….AND YES, a team that hasn’t won a thing in 43 years…IS VERY lower echelon.

    So, watch reruns of last years 2nd Colts game…Revis 4 whiffs….Revis NEVER puts a body on anyone, ALL arm and dive tackles and more whiffs than hits…..Watch last NE/jet game, on Deion Branchs’ td….Revis waved @ him and barely got 1 arm near him…Was pitiful Cromartie type effort….a la Deion.

    Thats the best player in NFL….Bull S–T !

  83. pastabelly says: Jan 10, 2011 8:29 PM

    Cornerback is just not as valuable position as quarterback. That’s why corners have never won MVPs. This is another obvious backhanded shot at Tom Brady. Brady has gotten under Ryan’s skin and it’s getting funny. When Brady saw the play, “Lombardi”, it in no way reminded him of Rex Ryan. :)

  84. ny82jy says: Jan 10, 2011 8:36 PM

    jontonioholmes are u serious. joe haden better than revis. revis a shade better than ike taylor. lmfao u got to be kidding right. have you ever watched a jets game? did you watch the game against the colts saturday. Wayne led the league in receptions and revis held him to 1 catch for 1 yd. Seriously some of u guys say some stupid s**t.. you dont have to like but you sound stupid when you make idiotic comments like that..

  85. j0esixpack says: Jan 10, 2011 8:41 PM

    “This week will be the same deal because when people see [Revis] over there, they don’t even throw to him,” Ryan said. “They realize that that guy isn’t open. I don’t care who the receiver is, he is not going to be open. We know that and we’ll try to take advantage of it again this week.”

    Yeah – Ryan and the Jets spent the GDP of a small nation on their CBs to shut down a Patriots offense centered around Randy Moss.

    That worked pretty well in September – but how’d it work in December when Belichick screwed Ryan by completely chaning his offense to eliminate the advantage a tall CB has against a dozen small quick receiving options?

    Not so well as I recall. 45-3 not so well.

    So if Ryan wants to continue that gameplan all the better. The Jets have yet to prove they have any answer for that sort of a gameplan.

    That’s what makes Belichick a genius – not just knowing when to cut ties with Moss to gain an extra 3rd round pick – but because he turned the Jets biggest assett (and biggest salary expenditure) into a liability by adopting a 180 degree opposite offensive scheme.

    Tis kid is a good example of why I feel a bit bad for the Jet faithful right now, they got nothin.
    So it is stammering and personal attacks. They can’t defend the head jester, making fool of himself, and them, as fans.
    It adds up to “make it stop”.
    It will not stop while Rex is there.
    The tide will turn for Rex as the second the Jets lose.
    Mayhem from the locker room, from everywhere.
    Everyone is sick of Rex. IO have never seen so many people speaking up that they hope the Patriots win.

    Fanaticism is madness
    BenJarvus stinks?
    Kid, loving your team is an honorable thing, but get a grip of your emotions, stop reading this stuff, step away from it. Rex has set you up for another big embarrassment, you don’t have to take it personally, you didn’t do this, he did.

    Anyone who thinks Revis can’t tackle hasn’t watched a single game. Hate Rexy if you want, but you might want to remember that the JETS were one of two teams to beat the patsies this season. The last game took place only days after losing Leonhard the JETS starting safety. As the saints found out, it isn’t over til the game is played. We shall see who really is the AFC East best team.

    You shouldn’t talk about things you have no idea about, and clearly football and cornerbacks are 2 things you don’t have a clue on. You should stick to things that I assume you do know about.. like Tom Brady’s hair and wearing your pink #12 jersey.

    ——————————————————–
    Yeah, we could tell how great Revis was that day by all the interceptions he didn’t make, and the countless passes he didn’t bat away ……. Brady was what, 21 of 28 that day? Think he threw at least a COUPLE of themRevis’ way, chump?

    Revis that day was worth every nickel of the millions they’re paying him, huh? Big “game breaker” HE was. Yeah, I DO know a couple of things about cornerbacks, like they’re supposed to keep the opposing QB from going 21/28 for 326 yards.

    I hate when QB’s don’t test Revis. I am obviously a Chargers fan and we lost that game but if u watch last years Chargers vs Jets playoff game Rivers was not scared at all and threw towards Revis and he did with success. QB’s need to stop being scared of him

  95. frankotirador3 says: Jan 10, 2011 10:43 PM

    Revis is nice and a valuable asset to the defense. But the colts are not the PATS! There are too many weapons to shut them down.

  96. stanjam says: Jan 10, 2011 11:45 PM

    Revis is a good corner, but not the best. Even Very good. Ryan on the other hand, is not a very good coach. With the talent on that team they could have easily stayed even with the Pats, but Ryan continues to make bad coaching decisions. He forces players to play things his way, rather than modding his plays to the strengths of the players.

    Which is why Cromartie gets victimized. As noted Saturday Cromartie is best at bump and run, but fails when he is forced to play in space. He gets burned.

    So say Revis covers Branch all day. Great. Is Tate gonna just burn Cromartie? Is Welker simply going to cut and leave him in the dust? Are Gronkowski and Hernandez gonna give the linebacking corps fits? Are the Jets gonna blitz and get burned by the short pass, law firm, and Woodhead? Or are they gonna back off like they did in Indy and give Brady all the time in the world to cut them apart?

    Are they going to run the ball against Wilfork? Or are they going to rely on Sanchez to finally get on target? If Sanchez is off, it isn’t going to be a matter of receivers adjusting to the ball. It is going to be a matter of McCourtey (7 more INTs than Revis), Merriwather, et al. intercepting him all day?

    Rex can’t coach well. During the last game he single handedly let the game get out of control early, and his team sank. If this game gets out of hand early, it is going to be a LONG day for the Jets.

    They COULD keep it close with all the talent they have, but I don’t see it happening.

    Rexy is losing it….NE makes him incoherant.

    You couldnt be more wrong. Revis is one of the most physical corners in the league. Its part of what makes him so great. He is nothing like Deion in that respect.

    go619chargers:

    lol you couldn’t be more wrong. Rivers threw in Revis’s direction 4 times in that playoff game, completing one pass for negative yards. Then after the game Norv Turner said he’s the best corner in the league by far and they game planned to stay away from him. On one of those 4 passes, Revis had an interception. So you have no idea what you are talking about.. go look it up.

    richm2556:

    You are the stupidest poster here that I’ve seen, by far, and that is really saying something. Comparing Green-Ellis to LT just shows how dumb you are. Why don’t you throw in receiving stats and show how LT blows him away? Or how he played for the #1 offense in the league making things much easier for him?

    Your points are so obviously retarded that I almost don’t want to reply because I feel kind of bad for you. It was Revis’s job to stop Brady from going 21-28, huh? All Revis? Good call moron! According to profootballfocus, guess how many times Brady threw at Revis that game? ZERO!!! But yeah he stinks because he didn’t bat any of those ZERO passes down, and didn’t intercept any of those ZERO passes thrown at him. Clearly you have no clue what you are talking about and I’m guessing you are one of those moron fans who can’t even name 5 players on the whole team without looking it up. Obviously you don’t know anything about football and how it’s played.

    Special Teams TD:
    Pats 3 Jets 0

    Oh really? You sure about that? There’s this guy named Brad Smith.. i suggest you check out his numbers.

    On the other hand, maybe I’ll just make up some nice fake numbers myself: Jets are better on offense because Sanchez had 45 touchdowns, which was more than Brady and the Jets led the league in every category.

    On defense the Jets led the league in interceptions and sacks so they definitely have the advantage there as well. You’re right.. this is a fun game to play!

    1)So you would prefer Revis over lets say Brady or Manning …. A corner can impact a given receiver on a play. A QB impacts the entire offense.
    You are entitled to your opinion but I’m glad you are not coaching a team I follow.
    2) So you are tired of foot comments that are around a month old and not only do you use one but you had a play on Belichick’s name??? Practice a percent of what you preach. By the way, spy gate was almost 4 years ago. Think this is getting old? I will admit that your version of his name was extremely funny and I’m still laughing. Has anyone thought of this before?

    82 tackles, seven interceptions, one sack, two forced fumbles, and 17 passes defensed in 16 games played, all starts. Those are the stats of Pat’s ROOKIE, Devin McCourty. He already has half the INTs than Revis has CAREER-wide.

    Compare that to Revis’ 87 tackles, ZERO interceptions, ZERO sacks, ZERO forced fumbles, and 10 passes defended. And he’s a THIRD year guy!

    Wake up, Jets homers. Revis isn’t even the best corner in the division, nevermind the best player in the league.

  107. patsfan1213 says: Jan 11, 2011 10:05 AM

    Correction: this was his FOURTH year. McCourty has half the INTs (7) than Revis has over his entire four year career (14). Revis is like the rest of the Jets: a whole lotta bark, but no real bite.

  108. drunkendegenerate says: Jan 11, 2011 10:30 AM

    Revis > any Patriots defensive player.

  109. patsfan1213 says: Jan 11, 2011 10:42 AM

    The stats say otherwise. McCourty had a better year this year than ANY of Revis’ previous years. Look at the stats.

    The only difference is that one player doesn’t have a coach who constantly blabs about how great he is.

    Now this year the DPOTY is the “Claymaker” Clay Matthews.

    Old fatboy Rexy seems to be trying to convince himself and the fans though the media that his team is better than the Pats eventhough everyone is really laughing at the continuous drivel.

    Hey Rexy how did your pass defense finish up? I believe the Pack had twice the interceptions and led in every pass defense category there was. Didn’t you use this as a reason Woodson wasn’t worthy of the honor last year but yet you claim Revis is the best when your pass defense is not that good? Hypocrite

    Brady is going to make you look foolish again.

    Funny how the Stillers showed Holmgren their SuperBowl winning touchdown again last week Week 17, same players: Randle El to Hines Ware… TD !

    Holmgren had to poop ! Mangini fired ! you all got short memories of Herm Edwards team of 4-12 that Mangini took over, went 10-6 to the Playoffs

    Cleveland is a fool… now they hire an OC, the fans are happy to get rid of having one of the lowest rated offenses
