Revis reiterates that he thinks Belichick is a jerk

reviswelker Getty Images

In an interview in March, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis called Patriots head coach Bill Belichick a jerk. With some time to reflect on that comment, Revis isn’t backing down.

I gave my honest opinion,” Revis said today, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “It’s just how I felt. That’s how I feel. I feel that people let him slide when he says his smart remarks [about] certain things. He says comments about us.”

Revis said he respects Belichick because he respects anyone who wins in the NFL, but Revis also pointed to the game in November between the two teams, when microphones picked up Belichick mocking the Jets by saying, “Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, suck my d–k.” Revis didn’t find that amusing.

“Talking about the best defense, they can suck my–,” Revis said. “All that stuff. That’s just ignorant. Why go there? You won fair and square. Hey, we shook your hand after the game. We’ll see you in New England or wherever in the playoffs, OK. But when you start saying stuff like that . . . it gets too personal. You don’t have to say that. . . . Did anybody else say anything like that? No. . . . Not from our side.”

When it was pointed that Revis’s teammate Antonio Cromartie called Patriots quarterback Tom Brady an “a–hole,” Revis indicated that he thinks that was actually an accurate assessment of Brady’s personality.

“That’s how he acts,” Revis said of Brady. “He wants to throw a touchdown and point at our sideline. That’s disrespect, man. That’s not sportsmanship.”

    I respect Revis as one of the best corners in the game if not THE best but when he has the nerve to begin talking about other players/coaches acting like jerks he better think about all the guys in that Jets locker room and front office. NEVER have I seen an organization that has done so little talk SO much. That’s why they fell apart last year and that’s why they’ll continue to fall apart this season. Worry about getting your own house in order Darrelle before you worry about what’s going on in someone else’s.

    Well-said, Darrelle!

  3. eric174 says: May 10, 2012 2:46 PM

    My first thought when I read this was..
    Yawn.

    Then I thought to myself…What has Revis ever won? Oh right…

    Nothing.

  4. rr2000k says: May 10, 2012 2:46 PM

    Hey, I agree!

  5. bradshawlives says: May 10, 2012 2:47 PM

    Wait a minute….he doesn’t like Belichick because he talks? Doesn’t his coach talk a little too?

  6. deweymad84 says: May 10, 2012 2:47 PM

    …Revis*

  7. leeeroooyjeeenkiiins says: May 10, 2012 2:47 PM

    Right, and I’m sure Belichick and Brady’s actions have absolutely nothing to do with Rex Ryan’s constant babbling.

    Bottom line, when you run your mouth constantly other teams are going to go out of their way to let you know you’re all talk when they beat you. Deal with it, or better yet just stop talking.

  8. cletusvandam says: May 10, 2012 2:48 PM

    This guy plays for the biggest loudmouth in the league, and the players take after their coach, but he cries like a little girl when someone gives some of it back?

  9. 49ersgiants4life says: May 10, 2012 2:48 PM

    Picturing bill bellichick saying suck my d**k makes me laugh

  10. shieldsisland37 says: May 10, 2012 2:48 PM

    Cry some more, Mr. I need more $.

  11. jeziyo247 says: May 10, 2012 2:48 PM

    Just another jet looking for some attention, if you don’t like when brady celebrate in your home then stop him. If the jets play the game as well as they run their mouths, they could be a great team.

  12. cantwait01 says: May 10, 2012 2:49 PM

    Revis is on the money when it comes to Belichick and Brady! They deserve respect because they win but thats about it….

  13. mancave001 says: May 10, 2012 2:50 PM

    So help me, I think I actually agree with Darrelle Revis.

  14. scoops1 says: May 10, 2012 2:59 PM

    Shouldn’t Revis be worried about holding out and re-working his contract yet again

  15. mrguygadbois says: May 10, 2012 3:13 PM

    Here’s hoping Stevie Johnson will continue to make Revis look like garbage this year. Somebody needs to put this egotist in his place.

  16. isphet71 says: May 10, 2012 3:16 PM

    Belichick’s not losing sleep over people thinking he’s a jerk (myself included.) He’s the Thanos of the NFL – 1 ring away from a completed Infinity Gauntlet of Uncaring.

    Belichick likes to beat you at your own game. And the Jets’ game is all trash talk. Sooo…..

    Jets lose to Belichick even in the offseason, apparently.

  17. jaxpat says: May 10, 2012 3:17 PM

    Someone sounds bitter! All he’s doing is fueling the patriots fire!!! 40 burger on jets first time pats play them. 50+ on the ravens for harbaughs comments. The hoodie will take this and use it against them, and i can’t wait. If you lose dont cry about it!!!! Foot lover Rex never runs his mouth in Revis eyes….

  18. thejuddstir says: May 10, 2012 3:19 PM

    Certainly not sticking up for Bellichek but Revis has a very selective memory. How about Rexy declaring the Jests the best team in football for the past 4 years (sounds like a dis to the other 31 teams to me), Cromartie’s remarks about Brady or having an Assistant Coach on the sidelines intentionally trip a player from the opposing team…..yeah that’s real class and sportsmanship Revis, tell us all about it.

  19. carmelaanthonysoprano says: May 10, 2012 3:51 PM

    To compare the behavior of Rex and Belichick is like apples and oranges. Rex, certainly, is a loud mouth, but it generally is bragging about his own team. You’ll be hard pressed to find a single quote that he’s said (aside from the time he said the Jets were trying to take back the Meadowlands) that has actually been unfair or rude to another team. Hell, if you ask Rex about any other team he’s playing you’ll mostly get a string of compliments followed by, “they’re good, but I think we can beat them.”

    Belichick on the other hand, while a great coach, is definitely more of a striking personality type of guy. Like Rex, he often times is complimentary to other teams, but he also does have a little of a mean streak, as point out by Revis. Also there’s the whole, “I cheated on my wife with multiple women thing” that Belichick did. You can call Rex a deviant (if you’re an idiot), but he never cheated on his wife.

    You can be the nicest, most professional guy in the world, but if you cheat on your significant other you’re a bad person, plain and simple.

  20. alltee says: May 10, 2012 4:02 PM

    hey carmelaanthonysoprano

    thanks for the best laugh i have had in a long time, it turns out that the majority of the american population are bad people based on your one deciding factor.

    as well other then a few private comments made by belichek, i challenge you to find me a single public comment where he was anything but overly complimentary to a team.

  21. stealthjunk says: May 10, 2012 4:22 PM

    I agree that Belichick probably is a jerk and that Brady probably is an a-hole. But for Revis to come out and cry about it after everything the Jets say about other teams is pretty ironic.

    Take your trash talk like a man Darelle, and if you don’t like it, go out there and beat them. What fun would the NFL (or really any competitive sport) be if all the players were just choir boys?

  22. truthfactory says: May 10, 2012 4:24 PM

    Everything he said about Bilicheck and Brady is pretty accurate, only problem is that it’s seems as if the pot is calling the kettle black…

  23. chrisjohnston10 says: May 10, 2012 4:25 PM

    @ carmelaanthonysoprano

    You honestly have no clue what you are talking about. Google “Rex Ryan quotes” and look at all of the websites that are dedicated to his mouth. Belichick doesn’t give the media anything. And he also doesn’t tolerate the trash talking. He benched Wes Welker for doing his foot skit.

    I am also curious as to how you know Rex has never cheated on his wife? He may be fat and ugly, but he does have money.

  24. havok82 says: May 10, 2012 4:55 PM

    Revis…did the mean man take away your binky? Are your feelings hurt because of his words? Awwwwww…..

    Tell your coach and team to shut the eff up and maybe people won’t rub your noses in crap when the beat the tar out of you. The Jests have brought this upon themselves.

    Why don’t you go hold out again, ok?

  25. grogansneck says: May 10, 2012 4:56 PM

    Revis would give his eyeteeth to be lucky enough to play for the Pats.

  26. deathonwings410 says: May 10, 2012 4:58 PM

    @Jaxpat….The Pats putting 50 on the Ravens? I dont see that happening this year. Theyre coming to M&T and the Ravens will have revenge on their minds. I think the Ravens will take that in a close one.

  27. bodeee1975 says: May 10, 2012 4:58 PM

    WOW!!! These Jets just never fail to surprise me…..Let’s see, wasn’t Belichick talking to his son with the suck my d*ck comment about the Jets, and wasnt it a reporter that happened to hear this conversation, so I guess those innocent Jets players are totally respectable to the opposing team even in private conversations …..YEAH RIGHT!!!!! Funny how the loudmouths whine when someone has something to say about them….The typical bully like mentality….Also most folks would call someone who fails to honor a contract they signed a jerk, cant wait for this dudes next holdout..Uggghhhh…..And as far as A$$holes go, somebody who has 8 kids by 7 different women and finds himself having to borrow money from the team he has just been traded to just to catch up on seriously delinquent child support, well…. my man Cromartie definitely takes the cake in the A$$hole department….These Jets are just toooooo much to take.

  28. patsfan1221 says: May 10, 2012 5:00 PM

    Another jet crying because he hates being owned by the patriots!

  29. gingerkid2000 says: May 10, 2012 5:02 PM

    Awww sounds like someone’s upset that they didn’t get to the post season last year and doesn’t have the twig & berries to take any responsibility.

    What a hypocritical, self-centered, egotistical, entitled, double-standard dummy! Here he works for a guy who told a Pats fan on camera to “F- Off” last year, gave Miami fans the finger on camera the year before, then there was “Tripgate” where he insists that he didn’t know what was going on in front of his face, and Belichick is the jerk because a reporter for the NY Daily Post said he made, what he thought was a private comment to his son? (Anyone who says that it was recorded on a microphone post the link please because I would love to hear it.)

    His agent better make sure a lifetime supply of pampers & pediasure are included in his next contract because he’s acting like a big baby. I could understand if Rex wasn’t such a loud-mouthed cretin. But c’mon! The man takes subtle swipes & jabs at opponents and players whenever he can and has declared the Jets soon-to-be champs for the past 3 years. But hey he’s never cheated on his wife so lets give the man a cookie for doing what he’s supposed to do? Apparently Revis also supports Cromartie’s statements about Brady (see pic of Cromatie hugging Brady after the Jets got swept by the Pats last season) and he’s such a model citizen on how women should be treated, spreading his seed like a rotating lawn sprinkler.

    Don’t worry Bevis, you’ll get your money. No ring no AFC title, no division title, but you’ll get exactly what you deserve. Making tons of money as one of the best corners playing for a crap team because you reap what you sow. And so long as you clearly don’t give a rat’s caboose about anyone but yourself, don’t you worry your pretty little head about that big ol’ mean Belichick, who huwrt your feewins’, even considering signing you because your not worth the money or the headache. That’s why you’re with the Jets!

  30. predicatepanda says: May 10, 2012 5:09 PM

    The Jets are a complete joke. Trash talkers complaining about trash talk.

    Question for Revis – is Bart Scott a jerk? After all, he said the Pat’s defense can’t stop a nose bleed during a post game interview.

    Which makes Cromartie…what exactly?

    To say nothing of several other classy, stand up, role models in the NYJ locker room.

  32. neer music says: May 10, 2012 5:11 PM

    because the jets set the league standard for class.

    The Jets aren’t mentioned…

  34. cmdrsmooth says: May 10, 2012 5:22 PM

    Right on carmel!

    Belicheat has always had a hard on for Jets. Loves to stick it to them every chance he could. Like when he quit on them.

    Own the Jet? Didn’t Revis and Rex knock out the Pats when it really counted(IN THE PLAYOFFS!).

    So stop embarrassing yourselves Pat fans. Pats haven’t one anything since Rex has been around either.

  35. ohnothatguy says: May 10, 2012 5:25 PM

    Wow are they still mad bill bolted for new england?!? Do you see why he did now?!? BB is the best coach in the game regardless of what anyone says and this is coming from a giants fan! 2nd revis is by far the best at his position, brady rarely throws his way, 3rd the stevie johnson comment is ridiculous, every catch against revis is a slant for a few yards, any wr can get that on revis or any cb in the game! Point is no one takes revis deep no one gets 10 plus catches 100 plus yards! Thats what this man does! And if any jet can talk its only revis bc the man has single handly won multiple games for them, godsake the man won more games forthem last year then their garbage qb who is suppose to, i give revis a break bc he is like patrick ewing, one of the best ever at his position but just cant get a real good team around him to win it all, n just like ewing had jordan to always ruin it revis has it even worse!! He has sanchez and the patriots to always ruin it for him

    So the NYJ do all their talking “between the lines” huh? What BB said was not public, it was overheard, and Revis’ own HC had no problem with it when he was asked about it. What Brady did was not only “between the lines” but also after being provoked by NYJ public disrespect. But your teammate calling TB a name in an interview…Bart Scott screaming about “can’t stop a nosebleed” in an interview…THAT’S between the lines huh Revis? I think you have some comprehension problems, Revis. Along with being a hypocrite. When you say something in an interview it’s just “the truth”..when they don’t…it’s disrespect. LOL

  38. pftfollower says: May 10, 2012 5:49 PM

    THE PATRIOTS HAVE ALWAYS GOTTEN A PASS ON THIS STUFF.

    People talk all the time about the old dynasty pats and how the were “humble” and “not showboats”. Rewatch those old playoffs games and superbowls. Multiple patriots players taunting the opposing sideline. Especially the beloved “BRUSCHI”, routinely taunting opponents sidelines after turnovers. But teddy always played with class right?

  39. dynaco says: May 10, 2012 5:54 PM

    If Revis says it, it must be true. After all he’s got a friggin’ island named after him.
    I once named a turd after BB but it’s long gone now.

  40. davidschap says: May 10, 2012 5:55 PM

    Lame,

    Every game they play COUNTS. The last game they played “counted” and the Patriots won, make that the last 2 the Patriots won.

    Jets fans are just like Ravnes fans (Raves 1-7 vs. the Patriots) always trying to bring up a game from 2 years ago. How did that win help the Jets last season when it “counted”?

  42. mistrezzrachael says: May 10, 2012 6:20 PM

    Revis has this wrong….What Belichick was referring to is…Revis, Ryan, jets etc,,,,,are the only ones with mouths big enough to suck his stuff.

    Funny, but doesn’t Revis have some Ladanian in him???? Alot of talk, but no show in big games?

    Then again, must be distracting when he plays NE,,,his mind on d–k.

  43. bigbluefan1 says: May 10, 2012 6:21 PM

    Wow sour grapes once again from the team that talks but never wins.

    Bill maybe a Jerk but I think that Jerk has 5 Championship rings 2 from the Giants and 3 with the Pats.

    As for Brady he owns the AFC East and has owned the jets for ever and that will not change.

    Now if you want to be a winner not a whiner walk to the other side of the Stadium and Visit the locker room of Champions.
    Woody may have paid for half of the place but it is and always will be Giant Stadium

    I know! The Pats scored 67 points in the two games last season. Those ‘great’ cornerbacks let Welker get 100+ yds in the first game and let Gronk get 100+ in the second game.

    Man I hate the Pats with a passion, more than nearly any team, but these comments, not Bill’s during the game, are the ones laced with ignorance. The team that flips off and curses at fans, the team that talks the most trash in the league. I used to think it was just the fans, it’s obviously the organization itself too. Darrelle is incredible but man are the stupid, ignorant comments. Every person in football talks like this on the sidelines.

    i’d be happy to see people(revis) keep such comments to themselves. but find me a comment out of ryan that’s even remotely like the one from belicheck. ryan is a loudmouth who overtalks his team and players. i guess bb is free to ridicule the jets if that’s the way he wants to handle himself. revis is free to have a low opinion of him.

  59. IainRWB says: May 11, 2012 4:55 AM

    It’s great to see Revis taking offence at comments about the team. Maybe he does care a little for the Jets and not only about money after all.

  60. mornelithe says: May 11, 2012 5:02 PM

    I think there’s a big difference between Belichick making a remark to his son, that was supposed to be private after a win against a really tough defense. Especially given the Pats D last year, AND that it was supposed to be the ‘changing of the guard’, so to speak. And sitting at your post-games, or during other media interaction and running complete face up and down. Do you think BB would’ve said the same thing in during his post-game presser? Seriously?

    Additionally, BB sat a ‘little known’ receiver, for making sarcastic remarks about another head coaches embarrassing fetish.

    And whatever the issues with Brady are, they’re obviously from comments that have never seen the light of day, because Brady never talks trash in front of a mic. He always has something nice to say about opposing teams, no matter what those teams say about the Patriots.

    Either way, Jets are #1 in talking smack, while the rest of the league is just intent on playing good football.
