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.
