Jets need Revis decision before plane leaves Saturday

Jets Revis Football AP

This is the time of the week when we hear several players described as game time decisions.

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis won’t be one of them. Revis sat out practice again on Thursday while he waits for the medical go-ahead to resume full football activities after suffering a concussion against the Bills. Rex Ryan said that the team needs to know if he’s going to play before they leave for Pittsburgh on Saturday.

“Clearly, I think by Saturday, we better know something, if he’s going or not,” Ryan said, via J.P Pelzman of the Bergen Record. “If a guy had a concussion, I don’t think you’d put him on a plane to make the game time decision. I would think by Saturday that we’ll certainly have an answer.”

Ryan also said that he wouldn’t put a player on the field if there was a risk that he’d do further damage to himself by playing. The decision isn’t totally up to Ryan and the Jets, of course. If Revis isn’t cleared by an independent neurologist, he isn’t playing in the game regardless of what the Jets would or would not consider a sound course of action.

There was a lot of optimism about Revis playing earlier this week, but that has died down as his absence has lingered. If Revis is ruled out, you can expect the same to happen in terms of optimism about a Jets victory.

    Leave him at home. With that high octane offense they now have, they won’t be in need of his services.

    I’m hoping you can detect the heavy sarcasm.

    They can’t waste space on him in the clown car if ge isn’t playing.

    This is the NFL. I would be surprised to not see him on Saturday. Only the NHL really takes concussions seriously. Look at the major differnce in time lost. NFL hits are usually worse. Heavier players = harder impact. Im pretty sure weight and muscle mass dont affect how much your brain rattles when hit. Amount of games played and impact of game should not affect injury reports.

    Why risk giving permanent damage to the only great player you have on your team?

    It’ll be alright. Ben is perfectly willing to throw pick sixes to non-Pro Bowl cornerbacks. He won’t snub you just because you’re not a big name player. He’s just a wonderful, caring human being that way.

    Revis is the best cover corner in the game by far! They lose him wallace is gonna have 200 yards receiving. Or he will raw double coverage in which case brown will be open big time. If Ben ever gets time to throw it could be a great year for the offense. But this patchwork O line is killing what could be a juggernaut offense!

    Woolley must have paid off the independent doctor. Which explains the guaranteed win.

    The Jets can probably afford to sit Revis against the low scoring Steelers and the next week against the inept Dolphins too.

    They will need him for sure though if they hope to beat the 49ers on September 30th.

    They’re going from NY to Pittsburgh. That’s, what, a 7 hour drive? They couldn’t hire someone to drive him and then evaluate him on Sunday making him a…wait for it…game time decision!

    Chances are he’s not playing anyway, but it’s silly to act like the Jets can’t keep waiting right up until they have to announce the inactives for the week.

    LOL I bet you are driving shotgun in the clown car. Steelers low scoring?

    Best WR group in Football.

    i agree with the comment about driving him there.. hell the game isnt til 425 pm…you could evaluate him at 7am sunday and put him on a luxury chopper (they fly at much lower altitude and wouldnt impact concussion as much) and have him at the stadium in Pitt by noon

    Don’t be so sure about the inept dolphins. I should think the Dolphin defense is looking forward to Sparano coming to town. They will just put Sanchez on his ass a few times.

    And yet they finished 21st in scoring last season. Go figure.

    And they got 19 points last week which puts them at 22nd so far this year.

    So yeah, the Steelers have a low scoring offense.

    As in bottom third of the league.

    Can you seriously not grasp that?

    Personally I can’t stand the guy. But I don’t wish anyone bodily harm. Hope he recovers from this with no lasting effects.

    All right, all right. You got me. My teams’ offensive production was only 22 points (and 6 of those came on a punt return that had a blown call – finally one had gone our way).

    But in my defense, it was against one of the best defenses in the league (49ers).

    Number 15 could probably play some corner.

  18. vincentbojackson says: Sep 13, 2012 7:16 PM

    Revis or no Revis, the Jets have a reality check coming on Sunday.

    Hilarious that Jet fan hoisted the Lombardi and gave each other a Gatorade shower last week. Is the bar really set that low that there’s a need to go popping off after a win over a really bad team?

  19. holeinone09 says: Sep 13, 2012 7:26 PM

    Yep, it’s all Ben’s fault the Steelers don’t score more. The guy installs a crappy game plan, with many running plays even though no holes are being opened. But when they have first and goal on the 3, he decides to pass 3 times! Then, he causes all those injuries to his OL! What is his problem? Finally he does not pull every play out of his butt when he gets chased, and he does not complete 100% of his passes. Imagine his nerve of that!? Let alone his defense lets Manning go down the field and score the whole second half. Yeah he must be the worst QB in the league. Right.

    I wonder how long you remain the league’s designated “independent neurologist” once you start keeping stars like Revis off the field.

    Smokescreen!!!…Hes playin…count on it
