Darrelle Revis: Jets aren’t just trash talkers, we can play

Darrelle Revis, AP

In the aftermath of their loss to the Raiders, there’s a debate heating up about whether the Jets need to engage in a little less conversation and a little more action. Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis says Sunday night’s game against the Ravens will be the Jets’ chance to show what they can do.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to bounce back and show this league that we’re not just a trash-talking team,” Revis said. “We can come out and play.”

According to Revis, opposing teams are more motivated to beat the Jets because of the Jets’ reputation around the league.

“We have a target because of the market we’re in and we’re always being showcased for this game or that game or if something goes crazy,” Revis said. “But we know teams are out for us. We’ve been to the AFC Championship game the past two years and teams, they really want to beat us. They really do.”

That big target has largely been painted on the Jets’ backs by the very talk Revis mentions. Revis had better be right when he says they’re going to come out and play on Sunday, because the Jets do far too much talking to be a .500 team.

    You just got rolled by Oakland. Suit up and shut up. Jets have a tough team, but they just love giving other teams motivation to beat them.

  3. AlanSaysYo says: Sep 27, 2011 9:42 AM

    Ravens by double digits. Seriously.

  4. joetoronto says: Sep 27, 2011 9:42 AM

    Time to start walking the walk, Revis.

  5. scudbot says: Sep 27, 2011 9:42 AM

    “…teams, they really want to beat us. They really do.” Brilliant. How exactly did Revis arrive at that conclusion? J-E-T-S: please STFU.

  6. billsfan27 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:43 AM

    And they can also juggle, and ride unicycles, and do all sorts of other fun things!

  7. qdog112 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:44 AM

    All I have to say to Revis, coach Ryan and the rest of the Jets is – win something and come back. Then talk. Win something!

    famous rex ryan quotes:

    “we will win the superbowl this year”

    “can i touch em?”

    YOU can play, ask Cromartie and Sanchez if they can.

  10. mrjnumber1 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:47 AM

    Revis is right. Everyone here saw the Jets take down the playoff powerhouse Bengals, Patriots, Colts, and Chargers.
    Oh wait no at best they’re kind of crap. And the king of crap is still crap.

    Sorry but trash talk is ALWAYS a bad idea when you’ve in fact accomplished nothing of note. Last year they watched the champs quietly limp into their stadium, shut them out, then run off with a Super Bowl win.

  11. qj1984 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:48 AM

    AND if you don’t beat the Ravens they will embarrass you. Ask Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

  12. steelerchicken says: Sep 27, 2011 9:49 AM

    The only time this steeler fan will cheer for the ravens is when they play these overrated clowns.

  13. crazysandude says: Sep 27, 2011 9:51 AM

    Go Ravens, been sick of the Jets since the Mrs Pennington days.

  14. GG Eden says: Sep 27, 2011 9:52 AM

    So they respond to the call to shut up and just play by coming out and talking some more.

  15. jimmysee says: Sep 27, 2011 9:54 AM

    Jets revealed by Broadway Joe!

    The emperor wears no clothes!

    Or maybe just his shorts.

    Teams have beat you guys in the AFC Championship game. That is why you were not in those Superbowls.

  17. ralphtherealravenfan says: Sep 27, 2011 9:56 AM

    Flacco threw long bombs on them last season in the opener…Boldin, Housh, and Heap…we have a better O-Line now, faster receivers and tight ends, and a more aggressive defensive coordinator than Greg Mattison…I’m anxious to see this game. It’s a test for both teams.

    ——————————————————–
    They want to beat you becaue no one likes a loudmouth, and the Jets are the biggest collective group of loudmouths the NFL has ever seen.

    Exhibit A: Yes, the Jets went to two straight AFC Championship games ……. both of which they LOST.

    Shut up and actually WIN something, for a change. THEN come tell us how great you are.

  19. bullcharger says: Sep 27, 2011 9:59 AM

    Losing to Oakland is a killer for the Jets. Going to play Ray Rice right after their run defense was exposed and then a hungry Patriots team after last years playoffs.

    As a Patriots fan I am hoping for 2-3 after that stretch for the Jets, but these next two games will surely show what they are made of.

    Rex Ryan is entertaining and I knew all the talk was fine as long as they backed it up with their play, but they will never hear the end of it if they start losing.

  20. stanmackley says: Sep 27, 2011 10:02 AM

    OAKLAND RAIDERS.

    anything else?

  21. billinva says: Sep 27, 2011 10:04 AM

    Then shut up and play!

  22. thejuddstir says: Sep 27, 2011 10:12 AM

    Talk about living a life of denial, LOL……neither Revis or Rex “get it”, teams get riled up to play the Jets BECUZ of their trash talkin’ bulletin board material. When both coach and players make self-proclamations of “being the best”, it has a way of motivating other teams…but hey, that’s too simple to figure out for Rex and his team of players. I don’t like the Jets becuz of their trash talkin’ but I hope they keep it up becuz it’s what gets other teams pumped up to beat them.

  23. deathspiralx says: Sep 27, 2011 10:21 AM

    But you guys *are* just trash talkers…

  24. thetwilightsown says: Sep 27, 2011 10:24 AM

    Dear Patriot Fan:

    Enjoy the Jets’ loss, we’ll be right here in this freezer, punching the hell outta this side of beef.

  25. sj39 says: Sep 27, 2011 10:31 AM

    What did anyone expect?, they were playing the Raiders. The Jets are still a good team though and will beat and finish ahead of the Patsy’s.

  26. ihatethejets23 says: Sep 27, 2011 10:33 AM

    Derrelle Revis got a 10 on the Wonderlic. He’s not too bright and it shows.

  27. damnsureis says: Sep 27, 2011 10:38 AM

    Good thing the Steelers and Packers got that giant target off their back by winning the conference championship. Everyone is gunning for the runner-up in the semi-finals.

  28. jdt75 says: Sep 27, 2011 10:40 AM

    Ever notice how the actual good teams don’t have to constantly tell you how good they are? They just go out and win.

  29. leftcoastnative says: Sep 27, 2011 10:48 AM

    The Ryan “mouth,” similar to his father and brother, has dug a bit of a hole for the Jets because “King Rex” continues to flap his gums. Reminds me so strongly of what Buddy used to preach in Philly and Arizona, but never could back it up on the field.

  30. mmmpieyummy says: Sep 27, 2011 10:58 AM

    Love how they are whining and everyone says they suck now because they think they lost to an inferior team in the Raiders.

    Well maybe the Raiders are a better team this year…but however you look at it, the Raiders dominated the line of scrimmage.

    So as everyone else here has been saying, just shup up and play…and Rex just needs to shut up and coach. Namath made some valid points.

  31. steelerfan999 says: Sep 27, 2011 11:12 AM

    You EXPECT them to lose to the Raiders, and still somehow think they’re a Super Bowl team?

    Wow.

    Uh, I’m a Ravens fan and what game were you watching? I think the final was 10-9. Not much “long bombing” going on in that one. I don’t mean to be disrespectful but you sound like we blew them out of the stadium. And whoever is referencing the Rams and Pitt game, please don’t. We got owned by the Titans. Two good performances against what looks to be a medicore Pitt team and the WAC Conference Rams at this point doesn’t exactly scream “Worldbeaters.” We as fans have seen this playout the wrong way too many times. These comments just sound like all the ones I heard on the radio about how we were just going to roll over the Titans and instead barely rolled out of bed.

  35. oscojoe says: Sep 27, 2011 12:29 PM

    Hmmm so the Jets are a “Show Case Team” with a Reputation. You are half right Revis.

    The Jets have a reputation of being trash talkers who don;’t back it up.

    Show case team? First you have to win some hardware ie… Win a division, Conferance or Superbowl.

    The only reputation the Jets have is they have YET to win anything 43+ years and counting!!!

  36. nyjalleffingday says: Sep 27, 2011 12:30 PM

    Everytime the NYJ suffer a bad loss, I have to deal with this crap. That’s the real consequence to Rex’s mouth. Loss to Baltimore, week 1 2010: “This team is not as good as they say they are!” Loss to New England, week 13 2010: “This team is just a bunch of overrated pretenders! They just beat a bunch of nobodies!” That team went on to beat the Colts in Indy, punched the Patriots in the mouth in Foxboro, then came within 1 score of tying the game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh after a complete offensive and defensive meltdown in the first half. How many teams do you think can do that? Not many, and if they conceivably could, they’d be a good team, right?

    The bias against the Jets is incredible. I mean, I can easily understand why they’re so disliked, but I can’t figure out why they’re so disrespected. I hate guys like Brandon Marshall, Vontae Davis, Hines Ward, Mike Vick, Ben Roethlisburger, but I respect them because of what their incredible talents add to their respective teams, even if they’re not good people or stuck on failing franchises, or franchises I can’t stand. Then you got guys like Ray Lewis, Peyton Manning,Tom Brady and Billy B, I hate ‘em all, but I respect them as some of the greatest to ever do what they did. Which is definitely why I hate them so much, by the way. Who but Oakland fans hate JaWalrus? Face it, Mark Sanchez isn’t a terrible Quarterback, Darrelle Revis is probably one of the best cornerbacks you’ll ever have the pleasure (or displeasure) to watch, and Rex Ryan, with all of his flaws, bluster, and braggadocio, is a good coach, good for the NFL, and pretty entertaining, especially to a fanbase like the NYJ’s that’s endured the type of misery we have. The core of this team is still incredibly young, and are all improving. Trust me, the only people who take the Jets lightly are the people who post on these types of boards. The staff and players on your favorite teams don’t.

    Darrelle Revis: Jets aren’t just trash talkers, “we can play”

    The Raiders disagree

    nyjalleffingday says:

    NO,, You cannot!!! The jets and their fans talk more BS than all 31 other teams in NFL combined. Anything and EVERYTHING they can do to attract attention to themselves….Shut up and play football.

    Revis chirping”??? How many missed tackles did that guy have Sunday? He made zero tackles…so do not say you are the premier corner in league…cause he will not mix it up on run support.

  39. granadafan says: Sep 27, 2011 12:54 PM

    Hey Revis, teams want to beat every other team. They want to beat the Jets. That you’ve been humiliated is just bonus. The Jets are becoming the Miami Heat of the NFL.

  40. suchajoke says: Sep 27, 2011 1:04 PM

    Jets are still one of the toughest and most talented teams in the NFL…….They were better than atleast 28 other teams the past 2 seasons yet all you hear is people trashing them, makes no sense….

    Yeah they talk alot for not winning “much” but what they have accomplished since Rex has been there is definitely better than 95% of what all your favorite teams have done

    They’re not even my favorite team, but I can respect them for getting to back to back AFC Championships with a 1st and 2nd year Head coach and quarterback

    As much as it pains for me to say, as long as Rex Ryan is there, they will be a very tough team to beat……He is a great coach with a big mouth

  41. runrickyrun34 says: Sep 27, 2011 1:05 PM

    Did you see my comments towards my fellow Ravens fan who said we “long bombed” you. That shows a degree of unbiasness (word?).

    But in reality, you’re team gets crapped on for talking to the NY media who people think is the only news organization in the country. I’d go as far as to say that Sanchez is a good QB on a scale of Elite, Great, Good, Game Manager, Jamarcus Russell. He has shown flashes a skills and then nothing. Flacco gets the same thing here. I think Sanchez gets more media hype which makes him disliked, maybe unjustly. We loved Rex here in Baltimore but I don’t know if we could deal with the mouth if he were our head coach. But when one of 32 coaches constantly says how they’re going to win this or that, it gets tired and the push back almost seems deserved. Honorably, he’ll take the blame but everyone knows that no team goes out and expects to lose even if the odds are stacked against you. You just don’t have to say you’re going to win so much. It’s all a game though. The press asks because they know he won’t back down which I give him credit for.

    @mistrezz

    Wrong on every count except one. Firstly, yes I can. Doesn’t take a psychology to degree to understand why a person would not be fond of a person who proclaims that his team is the best, and that his team would beat a persons favorite team when they played. Plus, people are used to the “one week at a time” Coaches, the way it’s been done for years. We tried the Belichick approach with Mangini (though the soundness of that decision is up in the air. Despite the terrible performance of the team, he drafted very well.) But yes, the Jets do try to put themselves on the pedestal, Rex believes that “the best place to be is when expectations are high.” He believes that the players will be motivated to live up to those expectations. It’s a philosophical difference, and nothing more. Do you REALLY think that even if Rex was quiet and subdued and we went 0-16 two years in a row that teams wouldn’t show up and give their all? The bullseye is there no matter what, nobody wants to lose in the NFL.

    And as far as Revis goes, if you really don’t believe he’s one of the best in the league, then I shouldn’t have even wasted my time with this wall of text, there’s no hope for you. Incapable of objectivity, are we? He consistently locks down the best WR’s in the game, and he’s not shy of hitting either. Ask Eddie Royal. His stats always look paltry because he has a unique role in RR’s defense. It’s like with Bart Scott, he doesn’t have to put up monster numbers to be an impact players. That dude is always running around blowing up plays, while someone gets the glory for him. Individual players bring their own impact to a game, you dolt.

    Suzy Kolber: Joe, it’s been a tough early season for Jets fans. What does it mean to you now that the team is struggling?

    Joe Namath: I want Rex Ryan to kiss my arse. I couldn’t care less about the team strugaaaaling. What we know is we can improve. Mark Sancheese, our quarterback, misses his mustard & relish, and so, we struggled. We’re looking to the next decade, we’re looking to make a noise next decade and ….. I want Rex Ryan to kiss my arse!

    @nyjalleffingday
    Well put and right on bro. Its one loss, all these haters wait for the jets to lose just so they can talk all their crap. Me and you know who we have and what kind of team we have. We always play better when the odds are against us anyways.

    @mistrezzrachael
    Hey question how many catches did heyward bey have on Revis? 1 for 5 yds. Revis is one of the best if not the best tackling cbs in the league. Exactlly which tackles did he miss? I watched the whole game i didnt see anything.You dont know what your talking about and you probably didnt even watch the game. He was barely even on tv on Sun cause the Raiders went nowhere near him.

    Dude, you realy have to chill. Any team that has any amount of success is going to be hated by the feeble minded. Most of the trash talk on this site is just that, “trash talk” You hate the Patritos just as I hate the Jets, but you have to admit that our games are some of the best over the last couple of years. You have respect for Brady and some of the other greats….that’s the way it should be. We have to enjoy watching the great ones while they are still playing. Barry Sanders left too soon….who kows if we will see Maning again….point is….love your team…..but apriciate the others.

  48. cliverush says: Sep 27, 2011 2:14 PM

    The Jets have been to the AFC Championship game two years in a row, which is evidence they can play. They have a good coach and some top players. Sanchez is young and learning to take the heat, but they need more than a few great players. Their mistake was letting some good veteran players go. They will be in the playoffs again as much as I hate that thought.

  49. waxedagain says: Sep 27, 2011 2:48 PM

    ” The jets and their fans talk more BS than all 31 other teams in NFL combined.”

    @mistrezzrachael: The team America loves to hate is the Patriots, not the Jets. There are no more obnoxious fans than Boston fans. The rest of America is chuckling this week from the double whammy of the Pats losing to the Bills, the the Sox choking themselves out of the postseason. The Jets losing to the Raiders was not a huge surprise to most pundits.

    Did you seriously just use the performance of DHB as your measuring stick? Really? Come on MAN! Fact is, football is a team game, so Reavis being a stud doesn’t mean much when Cro is sooooooooo weak. People don’t hate the Jets…they disrespect them. Because ONLY the Jets get thumped about the head and neck (and lungs) and then TALK more. This should be a week where they lay low and study and work hard. Time to let their play do the talking, not their talk.

    Prediction – Ravens 27 – Jets 14.

    Wasn’t shooting for you, brah. I totally get the hatred, not this disrespect. A good football team is a good football team, period.

    @jnbnet

    I get it, but how many Jets fans do you see in this article? Everybody else is just here to turn Jets articles into Fat Blowhard Loser Freak central and whatnot. Plus, these ignorant conceptions and pseudo-facts get pushed around and accepted because it fits the agenda, which results in 300 comments on every Jets story. It gets old, and it was almost never witty, or funny. God forbid the word foot gets brought up in an article.

  52. footballfan80 says: Sep 28, 2011 2:43 AM

    bullcharger :

    Ray Rice is about 1/100th of the challenge to the Jets defense that Mcfadden was. The Jets defense is very physical but not that fast. Mcfadden happens to be possibly the fastest player in the league. Rice is a more downhill runner which fits perfectly into the Jets stengths. Which would explain why week 1 last year they completely manhandled Rice and the Ravens running game for less than 2.5 yards per carry.
