Jags’ Jason Hill: Revis and the Jets are overhyped

Jacksonville Jaguars v Buffalo Bills Getty Images

As Jaguars receiver Jason Hill prepares to face Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Sunday, he’s publicly proclaiming that he has nothing to worry about.

In fact, Hill said he believes that the reputation of Revis and the Jets is more about the media coverage they get than about the way they play.

“I think sometimes they get overhyped,” Hill told the Florida Times-Union. “I talked to Drew [Coleman], Drew played there. He says it’s just the aura of New York. They got a big media. That’s not the Jacksonville paper, that’s the big New York Times paper so they get more pub. That’s what it is. It’s a game that we all play. He been playing the game, Revis, just as long as I’ve been playing. This is a game full of good players making plays. He just made a lot more plays on TV than we’ve made being here in Jacksonville. He’s a good player. We respect him. Hopefully he respects us because we’re going to bring it just like they’re going to bring it.”

Hill doesn’t see himself as much different from Revis.

“Him personally, he’s a good player, Pro Bowl player, I’m trying to make it to the Pro Bowl, too,” Hill said. “This’ll be a good game to put some notches on our belts too.”

Right. Because being a Pro Bowl player and trying to make it to the Pro Bowl are the same thing.

But dismissing the Jets as just another opponent seems to help Hill feel confident.

“This is one of 16,” Hill said. “It’s one of 16. that’s all it is. It ain’t no more than that.”

I have a feeling Rex Ryan will be sure his players hear that before Sunday’s game.

    Jason Hill, you should do something on the field before you start calling out Revis.

    and who the hell is Jason Hill?

  5. kd75 says: Sep 16, 2011 12:39 PM

    He’s not worried because he knows he has a day off going against Revis. He’ll get 2 catches for 15 yards.

  6. mrcosio says: Sep 16, 2011 12:40 PM

    Is Darrell Revis gonna have to slap a bitch?

  7. ehsdrumline says: Sep 16, 2011 12:40 PM

    LOL wow…this dude is def trying to fool himself into thinking he can hang.

  8. richkotitte says: Sep 16, 2011 12:41 PM

    Just wait till the Jags move to LA, Jason, you’ll get a little more coverage, and you really don’t need more coverage, coz you hardly get any separation from the DB’s as it it… Duuuuuvaaaaal!!

  9. ProDolphinsTalk says: Sep 16, 2011 12:42 PM

    The Jets #1 and #1 engines both run off HYPE. What have they ever won, delivered on, or backed up?

  10. mrtampa says: Sep 16, 2011 12:42 PM

    They are definitely over-hyped, but he is still the best corner there has been in this league in a very long time.

  11. hellrelle24 says: Sep 16, 2011 12:42 PM

    I feel bad for this clueless idiot Hill if #24 is lined up against him Sunday.

  12. 303bengalguy says: Sep 16, 2011 12:43 PM

    Revis Island got repo’d by Dez Bryant last week…

  13. trickbunny says: Sep 16, 2011 12:43 PM

    Whatever you need to tell yourself to make yourself feel better, Jason.

  14. jimbobobjr says: Sep 16, 2011 12:47 PM

    Yeah…and your point is…

  15. jpb12 says: Sep 16, 2011 12:47 PM

    Who hasn’t made it to the Pro Bowl?
    More than half the guys don’t go… Brandon Merriweather went last year.
    C’Mon Man!

  16. redrocker77 says: Sep 16, 2011 12:48 PM

    He’s right. How much did Revis help them when they were down 24-10 last week? Granted he did help things in the end, mostly because Romo threw the ball right to him. All corners get beat sometimes.

  17. richkotitte says: Sep 16, 2011 12:49 PM

    Spoken like a true perennial wannabe Pro Bowl reciever soon to be following the Jags greats like Reggie Williams, Matt Jones, Troy Williamson, and RJ Soward….

  18. o0omorriso0o says: Sep 16, 2011 12:49 PM

    Umm Im sorry but the Jets “ARE” over-rated. That offense and QB are pathetic. How they made the championship game the past few years really surprises me. They just don’t scare me!!! I think they are juuuuuuuust barley above average. Like a 9-7 type team that will probably over achieve again and go 10-6 or 11-5

  19. 4evrnyt says: Sep 16, 2011 12:50 PM

    That’s big talk from a nobody receiver that couldn’t even crack the starting lineup of the 49ers.

  20. tiffpats4eva says: Sep 16, 2011 12:50 PM

    Over-hyped, but pretty good.

  21. eaglesblow says: Sep 16, 2011 12:51 PM

    Well what can you say man? Talking heads predicted a blowout win over the Cowboys.
    The Cowboys were starting three rookies on the OL, were down to the bottom of their cornerback depth chart with the entire defense playing under a new scheme and basically playing with 10 guys on offense after Bryant got hurt and it still took some incredible luck for the Jets to even be in a position to win the game in their own stadium, let alone actually win it. If the 9/11 thing wasn’t enough motivation, words aren’t going to come close.

  22. ny82jy says: Sep 16, 2011 12:52 PM

    this jerkoffs comments arent even worth a response. Big words to from a guy who i heard might not even be playing sunday.

  23. ncsteeler says: Sep 16, 2011 12:52 PM

    The Jets overhyped??? No! It can’t be! Next people are going to be saying the Cowboys are overhyped!!! Hard to believe.

  24. bolt4life says: Sep 16, 2011 12:53 PM

    Revis is a great player (except his “Oh I got beat, let me try to get everyone to think I’m hurt”), but did he something that wasn’t untrue regarding the Jets? They are overhyped because they are from New York. It’s not rocket science. The Jets are the media darlings.

  25. z0inks says: Sep 16, 2011 12:55 PM

    I suspect that for Jason Hill, going head-to-head with Revis is the closest he’ll ever get to a Pro Bowl.

  26. bossplayer213 says: Sep 16, 2011 12:55 PM

    I had to go Google “Jason Hill” after reading this. I think that speaks for itself.

  27. purpleisreallypinkyouknow says: Sep 16, 2011 12:57 PM

    Just like any cornerback….if the rest of your D isn’t any good, you’ll get exposed. If they’re solid…it rewards the DB’s. Not saying Revis isn’t that good, but the NY market and his supporting cast make him look like gold…..and I don’t think he’s all that.

    Look at ANY team historically on defense….if their DB’s are lights out, it was mostly because of the rest of the defense on that team putting pressure and forcing the QB to make bad decisions.

    Ask Burnt Favre…he’ll agree and has the numbers to prove it.

    “Who?” – From Revis

  30. theduuuuuuuuuude says: Sep 16, 2011 12:58 PM

    I understand Hill’s comments… I mean what’s he supposed to say, that Revis is going to own him all game long no matter what he does? But I think where he makes a mistake is in saying that they’ve all been playing football their whole lives and that somehow levels the playing field. Some players are just better than others. Get used to it Hill, this isn’t little league where we have to pretend that all the players are equal.

  31. richkotitte says: Sep 16, 2011 1:00 PM

    I guess I really should start Jason Hill over Andre Johnson this week after all…

  32. gafraidh says: Sep 16, 2011 1:01 PM

    Any player or team that doesn’t feel confident that they can compete in week 2 ought to just shut it down and go home! Everyone in the NFL should feel positive about now, and that’s all this bravado is.

    Now by week 10, the end can’t come quickly enough…

  33. robertjamis says: Sep 16, 2011 1:02 PM

    He has 55 receptions in 39 career games, so yeah, I guess playing against Revis will be just like every other incredibly impactful Jason Hill performance.

  34. zoxitic says: Sep 16, 2011 1:03 PM

    He is 100% right, and it will be proven when the jags b@tch slap the jets this weekend to make it 7 wins out of the last 8 against the Jets. Stick that in your foot and lick it Ryan.

  35. robsterny says: Sep 16, 2011 1:04 PM

    Mr. Hill is writing a check that someone else has to cash. I heard on ESPN this AM that this joker has only caught 6 or 7 passes in his last two seasons and is NOT gonna play on sunday!!. …JAGS SUCK anyway

  36. S says: Sep 16, 2011 1:08 PM

    As much as I’d LOVE to see the Jets get crushed by the Jags it isn’t too likely.

  37. balewsquare says: Sep 16, 2011 1:12 PM

    Wow there are SO many things wrong with his comments! Overhyped? You bet. But they still made 2 straight AFC title games while you were watching. Does he forget the Giants used to get all the “pub” until the Jets turned it around? I too would like to make the pro bowl. I can keep going…

  38. Grulks says: Sep 16, 2011 1:12 PM

    I picture Hill mimicking Hollywood/Wolfman’s conversation from top gun, after Revis picks six:

    “Hell no, we got our butts kicked. I went this way, he went that way, I said to Hollywood, ‘where’d he go’?? Hollywood said, ‘where’d whoooooooo goooo’???

  39. winkandthegun says: Sep 16, 2011 1:16 PM

    I can only hope that he’s egging on Revis in the hopes that Revis targets him, thus freeing up the better Jag receivers. Otherwise….idiot.

  41. grogansheroes says: Sep 16, 2011 1:22 PM

    Everyone knows Revis is good, AND overhyped. Watch any replay with Revis, and Cromartie and you will see a DB with a fistful of jersey, on every single play.

    ——————

    So a team that makes it to the championship game the past few years is over hyped? When was the last time Jacksonville played in a meaningful game? Not just meaningful to themselves. I think this may be the most meaningful game for the Jags this season since they will be a non factor the rest of it!
    Welcome to LA! You can keep your tarp covered stadium.

  43. holdthemayo123 says: Sep 16, 2011 1:24 PM

    Overhyped isn’t a problem the Jags have to deal with.

  44. rectumnearlykilledem says: Sep 16, 2011 1:25 PM

    The Jets are overhyped. Historically, their organization is abysmal. Sanchez is terrible. Their fanbase is lackluster. Their home crowds generally leave after the third quarter. But Revis is the real deal and shouldn’t be called out by a nobody who may not even play.

  45. gallops99 says: Sep 16, 2011 1:26 PM

    Didn’t know that 1 catch against Revis was considered a great game. Dez was shut down by Revis just like every other reciever Revis has faced in his career has been.

  46. 13forgbp says: Sep 16, 2011 1:26 PM

    duh. everything in New York is over-hyped because it is New York. We can have 15″ of snow and -10 temps and it doesn’t make a ripple. When that same weather makes its way east and hits New York, that is all you here about for 5 days.

    Same thing here. Take their entire roster and put it in Charlotte and they would get probably half of the coverage they do now.

  47. freedomispopular says: Sep 16, 2011 1:26 PM

  49. southpaw2k says: Sep 16, 2011 1:40 PM

    “That’s not the Jacksonville paper, that’s the big New York Times paper so they get more pub.”

    Note to Jason Hill: When calling out the New York Times for supposedly overhyping a player, not being able to name the local Jacksonville newspaper doesn’t exactly build credibility in the general public’s eyes (or the local Jacksonville paper, whatever it’s called).

    Also, I heard about Hill’s comments this morning on Mike & Mike on ESPN Radio, and the real irony here is that Hill has a hip injury, and isn’t likely to play Sunday. So now he can’t exactly back up his claims on Revis, not that the Jets would likely even bother putting Revis on him if he was playing.

  59. marty2019 says: Sep 16, 2011 2:09 PM

    The Jaguars don’t win by throwing the ball. They try to win by running the ball. Therefore, whatever Jason Hill says about Revis, and whatever Revis does about it is almost irrelevant.

  60. cliverush says: Sep 16, 2011 2:09 PM

    Calling out the best CB/DB in football is a good way to bring the limelight to yourself. Now, please back it up with a victory and good luck because these Jets are a good football team.

    I am hoping the Jags can upset the jets but this no name moron should just keep his mouth shut. Even as a Pats fan, there is no doubt Mevis is one of the top CB’s in the game

    —————————————

    When did this Jaguars team beat this Jets team? 24-22 was during Rex’s first season as head coach and was Sanchez’s 9th game as QB. You think that team was better than this years Jets team? That Jaguars team was better than this years Jaguars team. The Jets are hyped as much as they are because they prove it on the field. Being in the AFC Title game 2 years straight isn’t luck it’s proving how good of a team they are and will be for years to come. Last time the Jags did anything successful was in 2007.

  69. polishrod says: Sep 16, 2011 2:44 PM

    Jason Hill – 3rd WR for the 49ers for a few years, now a starter for the worst passing team in the league.

    This is like Tom Zbikowski calling out Mike Tyson

  70. RexCanCoach says: Sep 16, 2011 2:54 PM

    another snooze fest post.

    When do the Jets play the Pats already?

    I will give you this much Michael D. Smith, thank you for finding an actual photo of Jason Hill in an action photo looking to catch a pass wearing a Jags uniform. It is so rare that the Treasure Hunter is willing to pay you $1000 for the original negative.

  71. cousinrk says: Sep 16, 2011 2:59 PM

    If you want to know who Jason Hill is, he’s the guy who is not going to play this week due to injury after talking smack leading to the game he won’t be playing in.

    Yeah that’s big time Jason, talk smack when you know you’ll be standing on the sidelines. Maybe you’ll catch a pass from the bench

  72. valman61 says: Sep 16, 2011 3:03 PM

    I’m a die hard giants fan. In nj/ny, I constantly hear this hype machine with Rex mouth, revis, sanitize, plaxico, all of them. They are 100% overhyped and I agree they aren’t that good. They’re an above average team, probably 5th in their conference.

    But seriously, revis is unbelievable. Absolute stud. What about Bryant someone asked, well he was on cromartie n had 4 catches in a row. Than revis moved on him. He had one catch and disappeared like whodini. Someone else says the d props him up. No, he props them up. They leave him all alone on the best wrs in the league and he shuts them all down. Yes it let’s them blot more guys, but they’re blitzing cause he’s so good, not the other way around.

  73. nationalmediacansuckit says: Sep 16, 2011 3:10 PM

    Is Jason Hill a household name? Of course not, but everyone knows he is right. The Jets have been a pretty irrelevant team for for 42 years. Sprinkle in a few division titles and playoff apperances, they have always been the Giants little brother that sat in the basement eating boogers. Just facts.

    But I get it, the last two years a pretty decent team. Two AFC championship game apperances. But we all know in 2009 you guys would not have sniffed the playoffs is the Colts didn’t sit Manning and the starters. Two stars on that team Santonio Holmes and Darrelle Revis and a bunch of role players. Jets fans are new money. Nobody cares about New York the way you cats think people do. But hey, it is what it is. Let the play on the field do the talking.

  74. gojags says: Sep 16, 2011 3:10 PM

    Jason – I like you as a Jags player. Please shut up and play the game. Revis is everybit a star player and more than that of what he is portrayed by the media. Revis is mostly the reason why the Jets are who they are on defense.

    When you get matched up with Revis, see if your QB throws the ball at you or never mind, see if your QB even looks at you if you are open. That will tell you how Revis is regarded.

  75. killbuck0936 says: Sep 16, 2011 3:10 PM

    This is a great tactic in my opinion. First Mike Thomas is the number 1 WR on the team if Rex gets a big head about this and sticks Revis on Hill its a win. The media sometimes has no idea they are being used, its kind of funny. As a Jaguar fan I hope Revis shuts down Hill because Mike Thomas will destroy Cromartie.

    Based on this dudes stats for the last 4 years i would like to know where in the heck someone found a picture of him catching, or even looking remotely close to catching a football. That had to be one his mama took of him in the backyard last week for the family album.

  78. ddbinfl says: Sep 16, 2011 5:05 PM

    considering Sanchez gets more hype than Freemen/Rivers/Stafford and the rest of the QBs, Idk…. Think this dude has a point.
