    Anyone think calling Darrelle Revis, Revis Christ is a little overboard?

    Idk if posters have called him that here but poster at TGG call him that. Does anyone find this a little ridicious comparing Revis to Christ?

    How can it be so overboard when it's the truth?

    Way back when, there was a little thing called blasphemy. Other than calling Schotty Baal Zebb, I try to keep religion out of sports.

    Revis has God given ability.

    It's never been a good idea to use God's name in vein, but when saying 'Revis Christ", thats actually a compliment to Jesus for blessing this man with the type of earth shattering ability that he possess on Sundays.

    No, they are equating Revis' skill as an NFL cornerback with--at least in the eyes of Christians--the divine wisdom and ardor of the son of God. As recently as the 1800's, such hubris might have gotten you horse whipped or drawn and quartered.

    And how is this relevant at all to 2009?

    Humor is timeless, as is it's lack of comprehension.

    I'm not a fan of belittling people's beliefs for no reason. Respect and class aside. It shows a lack of creativity and imagination. IMO.

    You have it backwards. The man was just a carpenter. Jesus would be thrilled to be mentioned in the same breath as Revis.

    Sorry, but this thread is in bad taste. I love the Jets as much as anyone, but I find this to be somewhat offensive. (I hate PC, but I'm just sharing my honest feelings)

    I think Revis is more like the prophet Muhammad keeping suicide bombers from scoring deep and killing the Jets..

    LMAO. This thread is deteriorating quick. Didn't they close the political forum because of stuff like this?

    stop it- I doubt Revis was ever banging 9 year olds....

    my opinion on the issue at hand; it may be a joke but it's a stupid one at that....
