Revis calls Belichick a “jerk”

Super Bowl XLVI Getty Images

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis didn’t stop at saying the Jets’ locker room is in “disarray” in an appearance on ESPN Wednesday.

During ESPN’s fine journalistic interviewing technique of playing word association with Revis and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Revis was asked to describe Patriots coach Bill Belichick in one word.

Revis answered, “jerk.”

Asked to elaborate on why he thinks Belichick is a jerk, Revis said, “Some of the comments he says about the Jets.” He did not give any examples.

Gronkowski only muttered, “Wow, I wasn’t expecting that one,” missing a golden opportunity to come back with, “Oh, yeah, Revis? Well, the jerk store called. They’re running out of you.”

    Can ANYONE give some examples of things Belichick has said about the Jets?

  2. jonkybon says: Mar 29, 2012 7:42 AM

    I bet Belichick’s ex-wife and the husband of the woman Belichick had the affair with (before ruining that marriage also) would agree with Revis.

  3. pynflfan says: Mar 29, 2012 7:44 AM

    Revis is only jealous because BB is actually a good coach and not about to lose a leg to diabetes like Ryan

    Hmmm.
    Who would you have the best shot at a championship with??
    Who seems the most organized and focused?
    Who possesses leadership skills, and who wants to snack after a lap belt?
    Who has the ability or tossing a grenade into the locker room, and often does?

    I think I would drop to my knees and cry like a little girl if I had to have a buffoon like Rex having any control over my future.

  5. mikebe1 says: Mar 29, 2012 7:48 AM

    Ok annnd?this is a fact.its no story here.

  6. infectorman says: Mar 29, 2012 7:48 AM

    Charelle Revis should have a permanent spot on “The View” next to Whoopie and Baba Wawa, he is SOOOOO Female.
    What else could POSSIBLY explain his mouth and how it’s ALWAYS open?

  7. nflfollower says: Mar 29, 2012 7:48 AM

    He’s not paid to be a good guy. Tebow gets endorsements for that. Good for Tim.

  8. ampats says: Mar 29, 2012 7:49 AM

    After Revis called Belichick a jerk, the next word was Rex Ryan who Gronk called an entertainer.The next word was Tim Tebow, Gronk’s response ?
    Starting QB for the NYJ 2012.

    I agree w/ toledoohoh, I have never heard Beichick say anything bad publicly about an opponent, now Brady is another story as he has professed his hatred of the Jets is well documented.

  9. mikebe1 says: Mar 29, 2012 7:52 AM

    1 example is ( best deffense in the nfl suck my d*&k) to his son although it was true to say suck my d*&k was a little over board. And I’m sure its plenty of other things he has said on the field including running up scores on multiple teams.o and he is verry sarcastic.

  10. steeelfann says: Mar 29, 2012 7:52 AM

    Not sure, Belichick doesn’t really comment about anything……..he actually cracks me up with his no comments though he is commenting. Revis may have an underlying issue.

    The Seinfeld reference is yet another classic. Keep em coming! Gettin’ jiggy with it!

  11. hwentworth says: Mar 29, 2012 7:59 AM

    I’m assuming Revis is referencing all of those BB quotes that sound like: “They’re a good, tough football team. It will be a good matchup. We just have to play sixty minutes against a solid opponent.” yeah, BB is just a huge jerk when he refuses to sound bite like Cromartie.

  12. sj39 says: Mar 29, 2012 7:59 AM

    I don’t know why he threw that “things he has said about the Jets” in there. Why not just say it like it is? He is a jerk because he cheated to reach his “super star” status.

  13. Akula says: Mar 29, 2012 8:00 AM

    Same old Jets. Same old results. Garbage in…Garbage out.

  14. grogantomorgan says: Mar 29, 2012 8:05 AM

    Did I miss something or did Bill’s mouth spring a leak!

    I’m not surprised that a JET would try to bad-mouth a player on the Pats, but to cut up the coach, who to my knowledge defers from saying anything derogatory about any team is mind-blowing.

    Perhaps Revis was referring to his own coach !

  15. almighty1 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:05 AM

    The fact Gronk said nothing is only going to eat away at him over the next week. At the very least he should’ve said that he just slept with his wife.

  16. watters7 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:06 AM

    Revision just mad that he looks like the black GI Joe with the Kung Foo grip.

  17. bcgreg says: Mar 29, 2012 8:07 AM

    WTF is Revis talking about? Belichick doesn’t say anything about ANY team unless it’s positive. Specifically, as a Pats fan, I have never heard him disparage the NYJ at all. If anything, he has complimented Rex Ryan and the Jets whenever the opportunity presents itself. Jealous a little?

  18. grogantomorgan says: Mar 29, 2012 8:07 AM

    Locker room leadership 101 … starring Darrell Revis.

  19. bigred12 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:08 AM

    I’m going with jerk store. Jerk store is the line! Jerk store!

  20. jade amor says: Mar 29, 2012 8:15 AM

    toledoohoh says: Mar 29, 2012 7:40 AM

    Can ANYONE give some examples of things Belichick has said about the Jets?
    ______________________________

    The answer is no. Because Belichick doesnt say anything negative about anybody…Except for Freddie Mitchell

    I think Revis had a moment of confusion, the Interviewer said “Belichick”, but Revis heard “Ryan”…

  21. W.R. Koss says: Mar 29, 2012 8:15 AM

    I hope Tebow can clean up this locker room!

  22. saint4life says: Mar 29, 2012 8:16 AM

    Was Ol’ Bill wrong? I think he hit the nail on the head!

  23. thetruth1313 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:21 AM

    Awwwwww…Did Belichick hurt Revis’ feelings?

  24. trh33 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:23 AM

    wow, i used to have alot of respect for Revis. I have never heard BB say anything negative about the Jets..and I have heard him many times shower Revis with compliments. If a coach talking about another team makes him a jerk, what does that make his Rex?

    When will the NYJ learn? All talk, all the time.

  25. rajbais says: Mar 29, 2012 8:24 AM

    Antonio Cromartie has now grown on Revis!!!

  26. tnpatsfan says: Mar 29, 2012 8:25 AM

    Interesting. Thinks BB is a jerk because of “some of the comments he says about the Jets”. Really? Most people who think Belichick is a jerk think that b/c he never says ANYTHING about ANYTHING. Apparently Revis hasn’t listened to his own coach in the days leading up to Pats/Jets games.

  27. itspartofthegame says: Mar 29, 2012 8:27 AM

    @pynflfan – maybe THAT explains the foot fetish?

  28. donterrelli says: Mar 29, 2012 8:30 AM

    Revis is an idiot. He’s just upset that his coach is more flamboyant than BB but can’t win. BB is confident and doesn’t talk smack.

    /Steelers fan.

  29. jagwired32 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:33 AM

    Seinfeld reference, nice!

  30. wisjeff says: Mar 29, 2012 8:38 AM

    Awesome!!!

  31. pftcensorssuck says: Mar 29, 2012 8:40 AM

    I wonder if Bill Belichick tossed and turned in bed last night, worried about what Darrelle Revis thinks of him?

  32. neemdaddy13 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:41 AM

    It is pretty apparent to me that ALL the Jets do is talk, talk, talk. The organization clearly has no clue what it is doing. The Tebow press conference is a prime example, you hold a press conference for your back up quarterback, seriously!!! The Jets are more about headlines than they are about wins. My prediction is Rex and the GM will be job hunting after another year of talk and bad football.

  33. bullcharger says: Mar 29, 2012 8:42 AM

    If Belichick is a Jerk then what word do you use to describe a coach that guarantees a Super Bowl every yea r and never stops yapping even though they haven’t even won a division in 10 years.

  34. skeefe1976 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:42 AM

    It would have been fun to watch Gronk spike Revis on air instead of the jug o’ milk…

  35. dspyank2k11 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:47 AM

    Revis, how many rings do you have?

    P.S.

    Stevie Johnson wants to know how his A$$ tastes :)

  36. areyoudue says: Mar 29, 2012 8:48 AM

    toledoohoh, there are many. How about this

  37. n0hopeleft says: Mar 29, 2012 8:48 AM

    Jerk? Im not even a NE fan, but this is comical.

    Darrelle, you looked like a jerk grabbing your hammy after Randy TORCHED you, slouch.

  38. marinephinfan says: Mar 29, 2012 8:50 AM

    @toledoohoh:

    I’m not sure why you capitalized the entire word “anyone”, but I’ll assume it’s because your caps key was stuck.

    Anyhow:

    As the Patriots coach walked off the MetLife Stadium field, he threw his arm around his son, Stephen, and added an exclamation mark to the Patriots’ 37-16 victory over the Jets.

    “Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, s— my d—,” the Patriots coach said in celebration.
    ———————————————–

    I’m sure there are more…

  39. 69finfan says: Mar 29, 2012 8:52 AM

    Revis’s brain is in disarray right now, well maybe always.

  40. howiegtr says: Mar 29, 2012 8:52 AM

    He was only allowed to say one word, otherwise he would’ve called him a “do-do head”. What a terrible thing for a Super Bowl Champion to say about…Oh, wait…..

  41. weepingjebus says: Mar 29, 2012 8:53 AM

    Since Revis was also attacking the Jets, by his own definition doesn’t that also make Revis a jerk?

    Smooth.

  42. ytsejamer1 says: Mar 29, 2012 8:58 AM

    I liked the part of the game when the topic was Tim Tebow. Gronk thought about it for a second…and replied “Starting QB of the New York Jets!”

    Hilarious.

  43. CKL says: Mar 29, 2012 8:59 AM

    Hahah that was priceless. Gronk handled that so well, while still being himself. BB would be proud.
    Funny BB gets called a jerk by a guy on a team full of guys who run their mouths and talk unprovoked junk. Probably because one time he may have responded…ON the field, not to the media. Waaaahhhhhhmbulance is needed.

  44. electionconfidential says: Mar 29, 2012 8:59 AM

    Revis should have just said, “SpyGate”… because when you walk off with three SB rings while cheating, but never win another after you’re caught you’re a jerk (and worse).

    In fact, when the Patriots were finally caught it was Revis’s team they were filming. If I were Revis I’d call him a jerk too.

  45. sjhesketh says: Mar 29, 2012 8:59 AM

    I’m sure there are more…
    *******************************************
    Of course, that was a private conversation BB was having with his son in the immediate aftermath of a big win, and it was overheard by some media member. Far different than BB getting up in front of a mic and attacking the Jets.

    This is ridiculous.

  46. mikebe1 says: Mar 29, 2012 9:03 AM

    Rex is great and the pats still haven’t won a super bowl since spygate.

  47. cantwait01 says: Mar 29, 2012 9:05 AM

    spygate = jerk

  48. Herb Deluxe says: Mar 29, 2012 9:06 AM

    Are you jokers really defending Belicheat as NOT being a jerk? I’m no Revis fan, but BB is a first class a-hole. He’s the one who said (in reference to the Jets), “Number one defense in the league, ‘s’ my ‘d’!” Class act.

  49. thekingdave says: Mar 29, 2012 9:06 AM

    @marinephinfan

    That was said in private to his son but overheard by a member of the press. Show something noteworthy. Btw I’m a Texans fan who doesn’t care for the Pats.

  50. i10east says: Mar 29, 2012 9:06 AM

    Breaking news!! Belichick is a jerk!!!

  51. daveydawg says: Mar 29, 2012 11:03 AM

    “Rex is great and the pats still haven’t won a super bowl since spygate.”

    No, but we’ve been to 2 and been one play away from winning both…

  52. gingerkid2000 says: Mar 29, 2012 11:21 AM

    Wow! Jets locker room is in “disarray” and this waste of space is complaining about Belichick? I hope Revis’ lady parts heal real soon. Maybe he should stop acting like a typical whiny Jets fan and worry about all those SBs they haven’t won.

    PS – Jets cheated too in 2006. Also well documented, and they still weren’t able to win anything. But keep talking smack about the team that wins the division while your Strength & Conditioning coach trips players on the sideline. Not that I would expect any Jets fan to man up about their own transgressions. THAT would actually take some dude nuggets.

  53. torturedraiderfan says: Mar 29, 2012 12:41 PM

    It’s not even April and the Jets are unraveling. It looks like they may reach Kotite-like lows this season. Wonder what Broadway Joe has to say about this.

  54. sabatimus says: Mar 29, 2012 1:12 PM

    News flash folks: Belichick IS a jerk. Anyone who doesn’t know this doesn’t watch any of his press conferences or read about how he humiliates his team in the video room after every game.

    He’s a jerk, but IT WORKS for the Pats just fine. I don’t see a problem.

  55. andyreiddoublecheeseburger says: Mar 29, 2012 1:28 PM

    This coming from a guy who plays for Rex Ryan?

  56. azbroncos says: Mar 29, 2012 1:41 PM

    How about a comeback of “Oh yeah Darrell well i slept with your wife!”

  57. blanchonegro says: Mar 29, 2012 1:42 PM

    For a network that talks alot of trash towards ESPN I find it funny that your using there Seinfeld humor. Having said that I love all Seinfeld humor. lol

  58. RyanFeet says: Mar 29, 2012 3:49 PM

    This coming from a guy who knows he will be losing two more times against the Patriots this upcoming ’12 season. The Patriots own the Jets and he knows it. So I can see why he is calling BB a jerk…. jealosy. It’s like when your big brother keeps beating you up. The best you can come back with is.. “You Jerk”!

    Poor 1hysterectomy. He has to wait for his mercenary team to fight his imaginary battles, given that he has no life otherwise, just like the rest of the loser Pats fans that post here. Of course he has to wait, because he has nothing else to live for.

  62. patsfiend says: Mar 30, 2012 1:23 AM

    How about Gronk saying Tebow is “the starting quarterback for the NY Jets” … that seems to deserve a mention.

    I wish August would just get here already. I need to stop reading this stuff and commenting on it. Must… not… load… PFT…. must… watch… hockey…. now.

    The NFL punished them for cheating. I’ll take their word over yours anyday, crybaby. The dumbest fans are from New England anyway, as well as the most jealous (just look at how jealous they have been of the Yankees for the last century).
