Revis to have surgery next week, ending Super Bowl dream

Reuters

The Jets wanted to believe.

But reason eventually overcame.

Jets coach Rex Ryan said that cornerback Darrelle Revis would have surgery next week to repair his torn ACL, and would go on injured reserve, according to Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com.

Ryan said the longer it went, the more they realized he wasn’t going to be back in time for the Super Bowl, or any other game this year.

I was holding out hope but the more information we got, realized that wouldn’t be good for Darrelle either,” Ryan said.

That gives them a roster spot to fill, but also reminds them of the spot they’re in, and the likelihood that they’re not going to be playing long enough to enable a February comeback anyway.

  1. I don’t understand what they’ve been waiting for. He tore his ACL, and that ALWAYS requires surgery. Even if he came back in 9 months which is very fast, the Superbowl is only 4 months away. NO ONE has EVER come back from a torn ACL in 4 months.

    They should have put him on IR weeks ago when they knew he tore his ACL. I don’t understand what they were waiting for. Seems idiotic for them to think he’d even have a chance to make it back for the playoffs or the Superbowl.

  2. This has to be the funniest line in PFT today,

    “Ryan thought the longer it went,the more they realized he wasn’t going to be back in time for the Super Bowl ,or …”

  3. Sexy Rex just now realized his team’s not going to the Super Bowl????? They didn’t even have a chance of going before Revis slipped on some hot sauce and blew up his ACL.

  4. To be fair, in a dream was the only way any of the Jets were going to sniff a Super Bowl this season anyway.

    @ bobby2478 Jerry Rice came back in 4 months.

    —————————————————

    And Rice was ineffective. He didn’t even play in the finale or the playoffs that year following that Monday Night game.

  6. Say bye, bye to Revis island. There is no way his production will continue after two knee operations. My guess he will get called for more holding calls next year due to lack of speed.

  7. This sums up the Jets perfectly. They are always thinking two pay grades above where they are and 12 weeks ahead of where time stands. Rex talks about the great defense they will have and how they will beat the Patriots in the offseason, instead of focusing on getting better day by day and winning the immediate next game. I really like Rex Ryan–he’s fun and good for the league–but he needs to learn to live in the moment a little more and teach his team to focus on the moment a little more before I’ll ever take them seriously as the Superbowl contender they keep proclaiming themselves.

  8. I don’t get it, why were the Jets holding out hope for Revis playing in the SuperBowl? Were they planning on trading him to a contender?

    Jerry did return in 4 months. And promptly cracked his patella as a result of his ligaments not being fully recovered. Thus delaying his recovery even further and forever altering his career. Dont believe me? Compare Rice’s career numbers from ’97 on to his numbers immediately preceeding the ’97 season. Shame he could have been even greater….

  10. To those saying ACLs always require surgery…that’s very incorrect. THere are tears of the ACL that will heal on there own. Also the reason they wait is usually up to the DR. It can be a matter of the DR not being available to do the surgery for a couple/few weeks. It could also be the Dr wants to wait for medical reasons. I think the point here is that they should’ve put Revis on season ending IR as soon as it was known he would have surgery. May just be me, but if you are having trouble winning, shouldn’t you get the injured player who can’t play for the rest of the season off the roster and bring on someone that can help shore up some of the weaknesses. Does anyone else ever get the idea that Rex’s first 2 seasons success was partly built on what Mangini already had in place? Also perhaps replacing Shottenheimer was not the smartest thing in the world. After all the Jets are struggling offensively big time and are 2-3, the Rams with their new OC ,coming off a doormat of the NFL season, are 3-2.

  11. The only big event for the Jets in 2013 will be their top five pick in the April draft. Heck, it might even be #1. Start studying Mel Kiper’s 2013 guide, Jets fans, and pay particular attention to the quarterback position…

  12. Ryan said the longer it went, the more they realized he wasn’t going to be back in time for the Super Bowl, or any other game this year.

    “I was holding out hope but the more information we got, realized that wouldn’t be good for Darrelle either,” Ryan said.
    ===============================
    Rex’s biggest flaw….he “hopes and dreams” too damn much.

  13. This team will never get better until they can admit that they suck; including Rex as a head coach… Seriously, how good can he possibly be when he didn’t know how bad his own locker room last year? To even mention the Super Bowl with Revis, is simply delusional…

    I get more exicted watching this team lose, then I get watching my team win….

  14. jets are the best reality show in town… its like a love child of modern family and community…
