    The circus has begun without even a single snap in a live game yet. This is going to be epic.

    This is too weird to see players taking shots at the front office and HC.

    I hope he leaves the Jets when his contract is up, I could see him wearing 24 on the Pats.

    Revis could also do what's best by the team and shrink his contract. Naturally, that wouldn't go down too well with Revis.

    This guy really does think that he is an "island".. little regard for the other 52 and the folks who pay him.

    Yeah, no. He's a great corner but he didn't earn the nickname "Mevis" for no reason. Pass on this tool.

    Not a pun.

    Over the past few years, this team has fueled itself on bravado, much like a bully does. It's worked enough to get them some wins and a couple of playoff appearances.

    Now, with the drop-off in talent, the "transition" on offense, and the potential of the energy that fueled the bravado being turned inward onto themselves, it is a disaster waiting to unfold.

    4-12.

    And this probably needs to be folded into the Jets Suck thread pretty quickly.

    Revis will demand an 88 billion dollar 8 year contract and the right violate it by demanding a bigger contract after year one...

    Of couse, he's correct. But he shouldn't be saying it to the media. That sort of stuff should be internalized. But, then again, this IS the Jets we're talking about here. Hope Rex enjoys his last season on the sidelines for them this year.

    In a presser Wrecks said that Hunter excelled as the sixth man. Soon the NY media is going to call him on his buffoonery. I don't know why it's taking them this long.

    Revis will never make it on the Patriots he has the talent no doubt about it but he is greedy to fit into the Patriot way....he will always be on a team with not a lot going on besides him then he can feel better about himself....guaranteed he will hold out next year and not honor his last year of his contract

    Honestly i think Revis is one of the best defensive players i have ever seen.

    Knowing that i would not like divisive figure like him on this team. A player who is supposed to be a leader who throws his offense and front office under the bus, holds out years before his contract is to be renewed signs a new contract then there is once again turmoil about will he or won't he hold out again.

    It makes you feel lucky to have had some of the leaders on this team we have had through the years, Brady, Bruschi, Rodney, Vrabel, Vince, Wes e.t.c

    It is such a shame i mean it's like he doesn't even realise what he is saying. Just because you say hey don't get me wrong i am supporting those guys... doesn't erase the last 2 sentences saying that the offence doesn't have enough talent to be competitive and it's the front office's fault.

    It started long ago, the minute they traded for Tebow. Cromartie tweeted immediately afterwards saying the trade made no sense and that the offense didn't need him.

    Maybe Darrelle Revis should worry about why the defense sucked last year before he starts whining about the offense

    You know, for allegedly a top 5 player in the league, a guy that the likes of Albert Breer insists is as important as a Brady, the team has only played .500 ball in his career there.

    No Mood
    The meltdown this year for the JETS will be epic, on a nuclear standard.

    I can see Sanchez' ego collapsing, imploding like a black hole and taking a lot with it as the offense sputters and cries for TEBOW! ring down from the stands.

    The finger-pointing among the players will likely start early, and the New York, New Jersey media will be like sharks smelling blood in the water.

    Gonna be some wonderful press conferences, too. Not to mention Joe Benigno on the radio down there. Man might actually have a heart attack on air. not that I'm hoping he does, but some of his rants have been epic too. :rocker:

    He is locked into a contract that was front loaded, and if he holds out all it does is add years to the deal. Tannebaum knew what he was dealing with.

    Not being able to hold out he makes himself a pain in a somewhat not so obvious way, hoping they will shut him up by caving.

    BB would take him in a heart beat, Law called him a liar and he let it go.

    Seriously. Belichick seems to be, above all things, a pragmatist. The idea that we wouldn't sign the best CB in the game if the price was right and he was willing to play by the team's rules about the press is silly.

    Everything being said about Revis you could say about a million times over about Moss...

    No one said that if revis would come at the right price, and played by the pats rules that we shouldnt sign him.

    The sentiment was we shouldnt sign him because he is selfish, won't play by the pats rules. wont come for the right price and publically calls out both his front office, team mates and other teams coaches.

    Rex really is an idiot in that he lets his players speak their mind to the press. Just in this year alone:
    - Cromartie Tweets bashing the Tebow trade
    - Holmes says the Jets' system of two QBs won't work (Rex publicly admonishes him for that)
    - Cromartie says he is second best WR on the team
    - Sanchez throws his teammates under the bus after the last preseason game
    - Revis trashes the front office for not giving Sanchez weapons

    And they haven't even played their third preseason game. Rex says he has the pulse of the locker room this year. If he does, is he calling a crash cart yet?

    I agree.

    and the basic problem is that Tebow will have ore success because he is more mobile and can extend the play (which leads to defensive breakdowns and opportunity). On the down side, Tebow doesn't seem to have the tools to light it up and will put pressure on the defense to keep the score low.

    They'd score more points with Sanchez (my opinion), but Tebow will have more highlight moments and the media will be drawn to those.

    Wouldn't it be the ULTIMATE kick in the pant to have happen would be this. After his contract year, Revis signs with the Pats for $5MM/yr. The rest of the league and the media are SHOCKED. When asked to explain this shocking turn of events, Revis is quoted. "Man, I got plenty of money already, and it ain't like $5MM/yr is chump change. Believe me, I can "feed my family" on that. No. I played for the Jets my entire career and looking up at the Patriots for all of it, except just one game. I just finally decided to play for the grown ups."

    So much of this!

    And the ignorant and arrogant fan base thinks our antipathy is because we fear them.

    Speaking for myself there is no fear at all. It is pure antipathy directed at a team which has done so many treacherous things to the Pats, and a fan base which refuses to own up to it, and bathes themselves in delusions of grandeur to try and cover up their inferiority complex. ( Hint for Rats fans; It isn't just a complex).

    ALL of the bad blood was caused by the Rats.
