Tom Brady: Darrelle Revis has “intimate knowledge of how we do things”

Darrelle Revis picked up more than just a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots.

And going into this week’s first reunion with him, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady admitted that made an already good player even more dangerous.

During his weekly interview on WEEI, Brady said the Patriots could also benefit from the time spent studying Revis, but knows he has a challenge this week.

“He’s got, obviously, an intimate knowledge of how we do things,” Brady said, via Phil Perry of CSNNE.com. “And kind of the skill set of our players and our formations, and vice versa. I know how he likes to play things. His play style is very similar to what it’s always been.

“He’s a phenomenal player. Some of those players you play against where you go, ‘God, how did they know it was going to be this route, or that?’ Sometimes they just know by what they see, or their instincts, or feel, by the way the receiver walks to the line of scrimmage, the way the right tackle looks in his stance. I don’t know what he’s looking at, but he diagnoses plays and routes. He’s off to a great start this year.”

Revis has three interceptions and three fumble recoveries so far this season, which caught the eye of his former coach as well. But as you’d imagine, Belichick downplayed any edge Revis had now having been behind the curtain.

“What we know, we know. What they know, they know,” Belichick said. “It comes up every week. There are always players on our team or other teams that have been in other organizations. We’ve played against them, or they’ve been with us, whatever it is.

“It’s really a weekly thing. Whatever we know about the player, we know about them. Whatever they know about us, they know about us. Honestly, it’s basically every week. It’s not like we have a big conference or a big meeting about, ‘This guy was here, and now he’s there.’ We could go on and on about that on a weekly basis.”

Of course, not often is that player as central to a game plan as Revis was, or as accomplished. So as much as they might want to diminish it, they’re also smart enough to know what he knows, and not play into his hands.

  1. This will be a great game and a test for both teams. If it was being played at MetLife Stadium, I would bet on the Jets, but since it is at Gillette Stadium I’ll go with the Patriots. I think the Jets are real and the two teams will split this year. I think the Patriots will win the division and NY will be a wild card.

  2. “What we know, we know. What they know, they know,”

    that pretty much sums it all up

  3. Love how Revis never defended Brady or the Pats during the Deflategate charade. Even the slightest inference of cheating tarnishes his only ring as much as anyone else’s and I don’t think he gets that.

    All I know is we needed him and he needed us.
    Jets fans can be thrilled to have him back but they need to remember that he decided that the Dark Side was the only place he could go to get a ring before going “home!”
    Kinda like going out, cheating on your spouse and coming back to the house with a huge smile “Honey? I’M HOME! What’s for dinner!”

  4. Revis might be one of the smartest players in the NFL. Thus why he has been so good. Sure he is a great athlete, but he hits the film room more than most.

    Should be a great game!

  5. Brady looks entirely too excited in that picture compared to where his hand is, lol. Looks like he might be whispering, “Dude, you must be doing crap tons of squats!”

    And yes, I am definitely a Pats fan, but I can still laugh at an obviously funny picture.

  6. The pats receivers should just drop a couple dollars on the ground when they run their routes and when Revis dives on the money, they’ll be wide open.

  7. Maybe Brady should study film on how the Ravens lit up Revis in the playoffs. When the Pats went down by 14 for a second time in the second half, I thought the Revis signing was a waste and that he would not be back. Well, Edelman bailed him out and Revis, while outplayed by Sherman in the SB, got his ring and then his money and return back to the Jets.

  8. To be fair the Jets could have the game playbook and still not stop Brady. They are on a mission to rub everybody’s noses in it and it’s all going according to plan. I really can not see anybody stopping them. They even have the power to make opponents do stupid things. They are probably a better team than the team that nearly went undefeated. I think they have a great chance to go one better. I was hoping Brady might call it a day soon but all that BS over the summer has given him many reasons to hang around a bit longer.

  9. What the Haters can’t stand is that NOT ONE former Patriots player, coach or staff member – many of whom are retired or with former teams – as EVER come forward to say “I saw cheating and here’s how it was done”

    NOT
    ONE
    EVER

    Revis had a little smack talk related to the Patriots “history” including Spygate – which of course was a new 2006 rule on camera placement the Patriots violated in the 1st half of the first game of 2007 long before he was on the team

    But if he was aware of ANYTHING when he was on the Patriots he sure isn’t saying anything about that – nor has any other ex-Patriots player – including quite a few who were cut and have an ax to grind

    Accept it Haters. Out of the HUNDREDS of players, coaches, and staff members NOT. ONE. PERSON. EVER.

    And you KNOW that the NFL’s propaganda network ESPN would pay a LOT of money if they did and could prove it.

  10. .
    The Patriots would be wise to avoid the Jets corners whenever possible. Throwing to the backs or tight ends would be a better option. I would expect Scott Chandler to begin earning his paycheck this week.
    .

  11. Cheating jokes are getting pretty old and lame. You guys gotta get more creative! As for Revis and Jets, they deserve a lot of respect, they’re a good team. Here’s to a good game!

    Sure, accept that taping signals is not even illegal today. And taping them from the field position that cause “spygate” was not illegal in 2000-2005…

  15. Revis somehow have to earn his pay. That intimate knowledge about the Pats sure cost a lot of money. The arms race to stop the Pats is crazy. Only BB can make his bargain team which includes TB win against the designer teams.
    The Jets have the legit confidence to think they can beat the Pats. Their roster is good plus Revis having inside knowledge of the Pats is enough to give us the headache. The game is a test for both teams. We’ll see if the Pats can stand the pounding.
    One thing though, Revis was with the Jets for a long time. We beat them anyway. It goes both ways. The Pats knows Revis now too. What we know, we know better.

  16. The Jets are the better team all around outside of Coaching and QB. This should be a close one If Ivory gets going and Fitz does not stink it up again.

    Ah, just beat him deep for a score and he will exit the game with a “hamstring injury”… problem solved.

    =================================

    And who on the Patriots is going to beat anyone for a deep score? The only way the Pats get a deep score this year is a 10 yard route and then 40+ yards after the catch.

  18. Jets D should be able to collapse the pocket get hits on Brady and hurry him into some uncharacteristic throws, which should cause them to be in a lot of 3rd in longs as well as a few turnovers. Jets need to avoid giving up scoring plays on special teams. That right now is their weakness.

  19. Belichik is the King of signing guys that have been recent cuts from the coming weeks opponents. Can’t help but laugh at him dismissing this as much ado about nothing.

  20. “All of America now has “Intimate knowledge” of how the PatriCheats do things…”

    Said a Steelers fan, a team with one of the longest and most extensive cheating histories in the entire league.

    “All of America now has “Intimate knowledge” of how the PatriCheats do things…”

    Said a Steelers fan, a team with one of the longest and most extensive cheating histories in the entire league.

    Right because 5 players that used legal steroids in the late 70s to get ready for training camp or battle an injury equates to the longest and most extensive cheating histories in the entire league. O…..k. Same steroids that the Chargers, Raiders, and Cowboys used since the early 60s.

  23. Some comments on the Comments:

    1. Mangini didn’t actually “rat” on the Pats since the Pats weren’t hiding the filming. The guy was in a Patsshirt filming signals like it was being done at stadiums all over the league that day. The only difference was that the Pats staff was doing the filming from an area of the field that the league sent a memo out on.

    2. Yes what the Pats were charged with was NEVER against the rules (you know what’s done by a rules committee and the votes of the owners). It was something the league office threw together and the Pats ignored. Guilty of arrogance – YES. Guilty of cheating – NO!

    3. Haters who just want to ignore the fact of spygage, simply hate when the truth smacks them in the face.

    4. Revis was the best CB I’ve ever seen, and I got to see him up close at TC the year he was with the Pats. He is like BB and Brady in that the REAL reason he wins is his brain. He’s not the smartest, quickest, fastest, or biggest, but he IS the smartest.

    5. It is always a great challenge to play him, not just because of who he covers, but how he affects those around him.

    6. You have to always be aware of where he is, but you can control the impact he has on the game, because as a CB, not matter how great, he isn’t going to have a big impact on a lot of plays. That’s just the way it is.

    7. Glad in a way that the Jets are relevant again. It makes the rivalry that much better. Not real happy that that have a HC who isn’t an entertaining clown. Even most of their fans are acting like grownups this week.

    ______________

    Yes all of America saw Harbaugh, Carroll, Pagano and their respective teams wizz down their legs in big moments while the better coached team didn’t so much as call a timeout or bat an eye. They just executed what they were taught. It’s not hard to see why a Steelers fan would be jealous of superior coaching leading to winning execution but the crying is unseemly.

    Really looking forward to this game. The Jets D is stacked and that team is deserving of respect. Bowles seems to be the real deal as a HC and that’s a good thing. The AFCE is always more entertaining when the Jets are relevant. Real fans want good hard fought games against a worthy opponent, not laughers against tomato cans. Like most long time Pats fans I am glad the Jets are legitimate again and raising the quality of division play. Good competition makes life interesting. If NE played in the AFCS the second half of most division games wouldn’t be worth watching

  25. The Island is probably the greatest CB in NFL history. There is a reason why he commands top dollar and has for a long time. He is the best.

  26. Let’s see one Team has Brady and the other Fitzpatrick??? Fitzy loves throwing 4 quarter picks, some for 6… Stick with Brady Pats in a closer one. 31-27

  27. All joking aside, he probably did learn at least a little bit about how the Patriots cheat like others with the team have.

    For example, last year PFT covered a story where former Patriots players admitted that they cheat on their injury reports.

    It’s called “Spikes, Talib say Patriots File False Injury Reports”

    Not that you need to be a member of the Patriots to see this. When you see the Patriots list so many players as questionable for weeks on end, then they suddenly end up playing, you start to grow suspicious as a fan.

  28. I could hear the hot air escaping from Brady’s mouth when he was saying that.. It was making a hisssing noise.

    I know! They stand on the sideline and pretend to watch the big screen while tripping a player on the field. They have one of their goons watch the bathroom door for them so as not to be interrupted.

    Is there anything more despicable?

  30. C’mon Patty. I’m not saying that game was do all, end all. Obviously the Pats are the Pats and the Jets are the Jets, but it gets kinda annoying when you read a post from a Pats fan that says…THEY NEVER BEAT US. I was there that day, and the Jets win handily. Pats were 13-3, too. Had a great tailgate. We merged our tailgate with a bunch of Pats fans right next door. Good times. This one guy in our group was acting obnoxious, to they TP’d his truck after the game. Only incident. 🙂

    Yeah, next he’ll be tripping players on the field. What kind of low life pond scum would do that?

  32. “For example, last year PFT covered a story where former Patriots players admitted that they cheat on their injury reports.

    It’s called “Spikes, Talib say Patriots File False Injury Reports””

    Which was BS plain and simple. Spikes had had a knee injury for weeks and the last game he played in he reinjured it and had to be helped off the field by 2 trainers as he could barely support himself walking unaided.

    Can’t remember exactly what the Talib situation but it was another made up accusation as well.

    Keep up the whining though about the mean ol’ Pats.

  33. “Right because 5 players that used legal steroids in the late 70s to get ready for training camp or battle an injury equates to the longest and most extensive cheating histories in the entire league. O…..k. Same steroids that the Chargers, Raiders, and Cowboys used since the early 60s.”

    Umm, you need to research your Steelers history because it is a heck of a lot more than that –

    Steelers History Of Cheating

    1970-2007 Steroidgate

    Richard Rydze, a Pittsburgh Steelers team doctor from 1985 to 2007, was indicted in 2012 for his long history of purchasing and illegally prescribing anabolic steroids, human growth hormones and painkillers. The physician was also charged with health care fraud for falsely diagnosing more than 90 patients with pituitary dwarfism so they could receive human growth hormones and drugs meant to counteract the side-effects of steroid use.

    Rydze was also on the customer list of an Orlando, FL, pharmacy that was raided in February 2007 as part of an interstate steroids ring. Rydze was questioned then about buying $150,000 worth of testosterone and human growth hormone on his credit card in 2006, but was not charged in that investigation.

    In the decade prior to Rydze’s tenure, many Steelers also admitted to using steroids to gain an advantage. Former Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw admitted in 2008 that he used steroids during his playing career. Bradshaw said on Dan Patrick’s radio show: “We did steroids to get away the aches and the speed of healing. My use of steroids from a doctor was to speed up injury, and thought nothing of it. It was to speed up the healing process, that was it. It wasn’t to get bigger and stronger and faster.”

    Former Saints coach Jim Haslett accused the ’70s Steelers of being “the ones who kind of started” steroid use in the NFL.

    Said Haslett: “It started, really, in Pittsburgh. They got an advantage on a lot of football teams. They were so much stronger (in the) ’70s, late ’70s, early ’80s.

    Former Vikings and Giants quarterback Fran Tarkenton corroborated Haslett’s story in a June 2009 interview, saying: “We’re playing the Steelers in the Super Bowl in ’75 or ’76 … we’re on the field warming up, and I see these Steeler offensive linemen with their sleeves rolled up, and they’ve got these bulging muscles. Later, we found out it that … these guys were juiced … all of them.”

    1976 Tarpgate

    In 1976, the Pittsburgh Steelers hosted the Oakland Raiders in bitter cold conditions with the AFC title on the line. The night before the game, the tarp protecting the field apparently ripped, causing nasty conditions on the field. The Raiders alleged that the Steelers head groundskeeper — Steve “Dirt” Dinardo — intentionally worsened the field conditions by hosing down the turf in strategic areas.

    “There was a suggestion that maybe the Steelers had iced the field,” football historian Joe Horrigna told the NFL Network. Raiders owner Al Davis complained that the ice had been strategically placed on the edges of the field, which would hinder Oakland’s deep passing game.

    1978 Shouldergate

    In May of 1978, the Pittsburgh Steelers were caught running an illegal off-season practice and stripped of their third-round pick in the 1979 draft by commissioner Pete Rozelle. Steelers players — 29 rookies and about 15 veterans — were discovered practicing in pads during a late May rookie camp, which was not allowed by NFL rules. The team tried to cover-up their cheating by doing it in a closed practice in Three Rivers Stadium, but local beat write John Clayton (now with ESPN) discovered the infraction and published it in the June 1, 1978 edition of The Pittsburgh Press: “Steelers’ Secret Slips Out”.

    Rather than acknowledge that he broke the rules and apologize for the infraction, Steelers head coach Chuck Noll instead lashed out at Clayton calling his report “espionage.” The 1991 book False Glory: Steelers And Steroids: the Steve Courson Story went deeper into the controversy, noting that Noll knowingly broke the “no pads” rule, but since he didn’t agree with it, he didn’t care.

    At the time, Article 20, Section 4 of the league’s collective bargaining agreement with the players stated that a club could have “no contact work or use of pads (except helmets) as part of an off-season training camp.” Ironically, Steelers team’s president Dan Rooney was instrumental in negotiations to get the “no pads” rule included in the collective bargaining agreement with the league’s players.

    1992-2006 Spygate

    Former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher admitted that his Steelers teams stole opponents’ defensive signals. In an interview with a local radio station he said: “The only thing they [The Patriots] got caught (was) doing it with a camera. We had people that always tried to steal signals. Stealing someone’s signals was a part of the game, and everyone attempted to do that.”

    Cowher continued:”Part of the things we had (were) wristbands that we were using to do it.” Cowher said signal stealing “isn’t even an element anymore because of the communications that take place on the field to the quarterback, to the linebacker. So it’s an element of the game that doesn’t exist.”

    When asked if the Patriots’ alleged signal steeling had any impact on the the Steelers’ 41-27 defeat in the 2004 AFC Championship loss, Cowher explained: “what happened when we lost that game is they outplayed us, and it had nothing to do with stealing signals or cheating or anything else. They were a better football team on that day.”

    1994 Tampergate

    “Carolina’s original choice to become its first head coach was Joe Gibbs. When Gibbs turned the job down, the Panthers eventually focused on Capers – the inventive, blitz-happy defensive coordinator of the Steelers. The Panthers worried Capers would be hired away by a college in need of a coach, because colleges weren’t bound by the same “wait until the season is over” restrictions as NFL teams.

    So, despite the anti-tampering rules, Carolina’s leadership (owner Jerry Richardson, president Mike McCormack and general manager Bill Polian) contacted the Steelers, secured permission to interview Capers and secretly did so before the playoffs began.

    Then-NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue summoned the Panthers to New York and eventually fined them $150,000 and took away a second- and a sixth-round draft pick in the 1995 draft.

    At the time, it was the first punishment the NFL had ever handed out that included the loss of multiple draft picks. Pittsburgh was fined $50,000, too, for allowing the interview (so the Steelers lost money and lost Capers, too).”

    2000 Salary Cap Violation

    The Pittsburgh Steelers lost their third-round pick in the 2001 draft and were fined $150,000 by the National Football League yesterday for violating salary cap rules with the retired offensive tackle Will Wolford.

    The league determined that the Steelers made an undisclosed commitment to pay Wolford $400,000 that violated the league’s rules governing the size of team payrolls. The Steelers were ordered to pay Wolford the $400,000 and another $150,000 to the league as a penalty.

    The $400,000 was counted against the team’s salary cap.

    2012 Crampgate

    In November of 2012 the NFL fined Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders $15,000 and the Steelers organization another $35,000 for Sanders’ faking of an injury against the Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 21, 2012.

    Said NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson: “Despite the account given by Sanders during our November 2nd meeting, neither the video sequence of the pertinent plays nor the observations of the on-field official support Sanders’s contention that he was in severe pain, either before, while falling to the ground, lying on the ground, or when he was being assisted in leaving the field,” said in a letter to the Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and Sanders.

    “Moreover, after missing the one play that is mandatory pursuant to the playing rules, and receiving no apparent treatment, Sanders returned to the game for a fourth down punt, on which he out sprinted all of his teammates 26 yards down the field, arriving at the ball ahead of all other Pittsburgh players, and then downing the ball.

    2013 Impedegate

    Coach Tomlin steps onto the field in front of millions of people to intentionally block Jacoby Jones during his kick return and then later claimed he had no idea he was blocking Jones and caused him to get tackled instead of scoring a return TD.

    They seemed pretty relevant to me when they bounced our guys out of the playoffs after a 14-2 season in 2010

    A little respect goes a long way. As a Pats fan I can’t mock the Jets yahoos and fail to mention that the arrogant 10% of Pats nation makes us all look bad. Since you like history, remember Rod Rust? How about Hugh Millen? I do and the thought of them restores my humility whenever I get carried away

  38. I would say the Jets were relevant in 09 and 10, Rachel. There are 32 teams in the NFL. Both of those seasons the Jets were 1 of 4 teams that remained alive. Since a lot of people watch football, that was a lot people watching the Jets those days. Unfortunately for us we lost, but we were certainly relevant. Since a great number of Jets and Pats fans seem to be acting normal this week, I would think most would agree with this on principal, but being the extreme hater that seem to be, I wouldn’t expect you to. Cheers and good luck Sunday!

  39. So, do you guys have existing diatribes on file for each team so you can copy and paste your “they’re cheaters too” propaganda, or do you spend 45 minutes typing out your response (like anyone bothers reading it). Is there like a pat’s flimsy defense website that has all the templates or what. LOL

  40. I wonder, did brady say that with a straight face? Did the reporters all break out laughing when he said it, or try and hold it in and blow pepsi out their noses?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Hear, Hear! Very well said.

    So many negative attitudes on all sides. Try taking a different view. Instead of ‘everyone but us sucks or cheats’, try respecting an opponent – it is that much sweeter when you win. And when you win, win humble.

    You know what? This is the Patriot way. BB and TB have done this for the last decade and a half.

    (and I do remember Rust and Millen, but Rust is ever so forgettable. I also remember Cappelletti and Nance. And the Pats playing at BU and Fenway)

  43. as an nfc guy right now jets/patriots is the best rivalry in the nfl in my opinion..even when the jets are trash they still put up a fight..patriots too good this year but it should be interesting to see how this jets d fares against this offensive juggernaut…i think it’s obvious..they will avoid their corners & eat their lbs up.

  44. Jets are strong up front on both sides of the ball. They’ve got good linebackers and good corners. They are defensively sound. They’ve also got a good running back in Ivory and a pair of good receivers in Decker and Marshall. The Jets will go as far as Fitzpatrick takes them. The Patriots are the Patriots, well disciplined, well coached, and not without their own playmakers, Gronk, Edelman, Amendola Lewis, Blount, with Lafell possibly back this week on offense. Pats are decent up front on both side of the ball, but Jets have the advantage here. Collins, Hightower, Butler, and McCourt round out a competent defense especially because Belichick is brains behind it. And of course last but anything but least is Brady on a mission. This will be a good game and the Jets have a fighting chance depending on how Fitzpatrick plays. The games in Foxboro, so my money’s on the Pats in a tight one, 30-27.

  45. It’s not like fearing a QB. Revis can still only cover one guy and they can’t really waste him on Gronk who might just stay in and block. Revis will probably take Edelman out of the game. Gotta win without him. The bigger problem with the Jets is their pass rush against the Patriots o line that worries me more.

    To be fair the Jets could have the game playbook and still not stop Brady.

    If the Jets had the Pats playbook, wouldn’t that just make it even? Seeing as how the Pats already have every team’s playbook…

  47. I won’t be surprise if the Jets win this one… All of the Patriots weaknesses are the Jets strength… This makes for a great battle… I got my money on Revis and the Jets… Heard it first right here the Jets will beat the Patriots…Indeed…

  48. Pats and Steeler fans arguing over who cheats most.

    LOL

    I’ll agree that the Pats’ cheating has been more creative and varied but neither has won without cheating.
