Darrelle Revis: It probably wasn’t one of my better games

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis had some rough outings last season, particularly against Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins in losses that kept the Jets from making the playoffs.

He had another rough one to open the 2016 season. A.J. Green caught most of his 12 passes for 180 yards against Revis, including a 54-yard touchdown that gave the Bengals a 10-7 lead in the first half of the game. Revis showed some understatement when asked about his outing.

“It probably wasn’t one of my better games,” Revis said, via NJ.com. “I can take a punch on the chin.”

The Jets shaded safety Marcus Gilchrist to Green’s side on occasion, but Revis played plenty of man coverage during the game. It didn’t turn out well, but Revis said he isn’t worried about more problems in the weeks to come.

“Definitely not,” Revis said. “We do have a lot of experience. This is our second year of being together. We’ve just got to tighten some things up. I definitely have confidence in the secondary we’ve got.”

Watkins is on tap for Thursday, so Revis and the rest of the defensive backs will have to get things together quickly.

    As a Bengals fan, the Jets played very well.

    They have NOTHING to worry about.

    Revis was 1on1 with a young top WR in his prime.

    The Jets have a great team, and it showed.

    Ice up son, you’ve been burnt real bad.

    Honestly this isn’t news, he’s been getting scorched with more frequency the last couple years.

    It’s funny but every time somebody pays the man his production seems to drop… but if he’s playing for a contract he’s solid.

    Revis has been done for quite sometime now. Nothing to see here folks.

    Who’s the slouch now???

    Revis looked old and slow all day. Add that to expensive and you’ve got a big problem. Once again the Jets pay a player for what they use to be not who they are now.

    Revis made about 1.2 million today…tamper and the Jets get a slap on the wrist from Jet Goodell. Days like this make me smile.

    thats an understatement. It was so bad that AJ Green should have probably been arrested for assaulting Revis all day long.

    Revis looks ready to move to safety. He still is a super smart player and I think he is still valuable but he’s just not the same player physically that he once was at corner.

    This game was a toss up from the start..two teams with the same amount of talent and whoever made a mistake lost. Jets fans shouldn’t give up yet. Decker and Marshall won’t have a game like that again and it’s better to get it out of the way now.

    Revis hasn’t been dominant since 2009. That’s just a fact.

    He was hurt with a hammy in 2010 and 2011, tore his ACL in 2013 and played well for the Pats in 2014, but he was mediocre last year and looks to be worse a year later.

    Enjoy being taken for a ride, Jets fans.

    Revis, Marshall and Fitz are all wildly overpaid.

    Week 2 is too early to call any game a “must win,” but it feels like the loser of Jets vs Bills on Thursday night is toast for the year

  12. bengalskuta82 says: Sep 11, 2016 7:35 PM

    Yup I agree..Jets will be just fine. It was a good game playoff atmosphere

  13. lgw91s says: Sep 11, 2016 7:36 PM

    He is still one of the corners with the best technique and knowledge, but he doesn’t match up well against the burners anymore,
    On a bright note, we have probably seen the last of the holdouts.

    Once he got paid his, what, 3rd or 4th huge payout when he played with the Pats, got his ring and then got paid again by the Jets…I don’t see he has quite the motivation he used to have. Even the money, he’s been paid something like 100 million now. After taxes and agent’s fees that’s still a heck of a big pile of money he has left.

    Revis lost the game against the Bills to end the season and keep the Jets out of the playoffs and he got torched here today. Other than quarterback, in the NFL a star’s time at the top is limited. But this game was lost with the missed extra point and the blocked 22 yard FG. The Jets defensive line kicked their butt all game long.

    The red-headed guy will win some games and put up some impressive stats during the regular season….but come postseason he will choke again. Even Bengals fans acknowledge this.

    Could have stayed with the Patriots for less money and been playing meaningful games in January and potentially into February. I guess it’s all about the money with Revis.

    Revis Island is now Fantasy Island.

    worked out very well for the Patriots, both their CBs are better than Revis and much cheaper

    He deserves the Jets and vice versa

    No shame in that for Revis -we get older, it’s what happens. Shame on the Jets though for placing themselves in cap hell.

    Is the Jets front office still high-fiving over being the highest bidder for his services?
