Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is working his way through the so-called ESPN “car wash” on Wednesday, with a variety of appearances on the various ESPN platforms.
Which appearing on SportsCenter, Revis essentially removed the T-tops during the spotless rinse cycle.
Asked to play word association (there’s something original), Revis was given the term “locker room.”
His response, via ESPNNewYork.com? “Disarray right now.”
Revis isn’t telling us anything we don’t know, but any negative comments about the current state of the franchise operate like a bucketful of chum in a shark tank.
Here’s another chum bucket, regarding the impact of the team’s new backup quarterback on its starter: “I think [Tim Tebow] will have a big impact on [Mark Sanchez] in terms of just trying to maybe push him a little bit more.”
Revis tried to save it, but the words were already into the ether. “Not to say that Mark needs to get pushed, but in a way that you know, Tebow is a winning quarterback. Mark is a winning quarterback too, you got to understand that Mark took us to two AFC championship games.”
But last year, Mark took the Jets nowhere, and Tebow took the Broncos to the final eight. And with the locker room in “disarray,” maybe a guy like Tebow with his terminally positive outlook is the only thing that can turn it around.
