And First of all I want the jets to win, I rather the pats face the jets than the steelers in the playoffs. Regardless of what happened 2 years ago.
Can't you have a discussion of football at anything close to an adult level?
Why don't you pipe the f'k down and quit playing internet doctor.

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis unsure about status for Sunday vs Steelers after being 'in a fog' after concussion
BY MANISH MEHTA
Revis, who has not yet been cleared for contact by doctors, admitted on Thursday that he was “in a fog” after getting kicked in the head in the season opener. Although the All-Pro cornerback said that he felt “pretty good” and capable of playing in Pittsburgh, the decision will ultimately be out of his hands.
“It’s not my call. It’s the doctors’ call,” Revis said. “Whatever they say goes. I would try to be out there with a broken leg. They know that. It’s a competitive spirit in me that just wants to go out there and play. If I feel fine, which I do, then we’ll go from there.”

Darrelle Revis said he could tell it was Bart Scott as his leg thwacked the back of Revis' helmet and delivered the first diagnosed concussion the cornerback has ever had.
First it was a headache as trainers and doctors checked him out on the sideline. Eventually, his mind settled into a fog.
When asked if that fog as cleared, he said only: "It's cool, I know who you are."
His status is just as uncertain, as Revis said it's completely out of his hands. He wouldn't say whether he preferred to rest as a precaution and wouldn't speculate on what he'll be able to do tomorrow.
He said he does not have any light sensitivity and that the Jets have recommended outside doctors for him to visit.
"This is something you have to get guidance from, from the training staff and the doctors," he said.
Revis said that he's been on a regiment where he can run and lift throughout the week. He's attended all meetings, but cannot participate in any physical contact.
"I'm just trying to do the best I can to get out there on the field," he said.
Revis said he's looking to "move on" but would not comment on whether he feared repercussions down the road.
When asked if he was comfortable playing without practicing, he had this:
"I don't know, would I be comfortable? At that point I don't think I'd have a choice. You have to do what the doctors say. I'm preparing just as any other week, when my number's called to play then I'll be out there."

Ray, check this link that i copied and pasted from. Ray, why the hell would i lie, the article is there for anyone to read, how the hell did you get that he never said he had a headache?
Revis, surrounded by reporters at his locker, was subdued as he spoke about the concussion and its aftereffects, saying he was "in a fog" after getting kicked in the back of the head by teammate Bart Scott.
The only thing he remembers about the play was seeing C.J. Spiller run through a hole and trying to arm-tackle him. He fell on his stomach and was accidently kicked in the helmet by Scott, who was pursuing Spiller. Revis joked that he knew right away it was Scott, because of the linebacker's reckless style.
The All-Pro cornerback said he had a headache, but wasn't sure it was concussion-related because he never had been diagnosed with one before. The Jets are calling it a "mild" concussion.
Asked if he's concerned about possible long-term effects, Revis said, "No. No comment."

WTF are you talking about acting like a doctor? I don't think you comprehend very well.
Like I said to Ray, I want the steelers to lose, as the hill to climb to get to the playoffs at 0-2 is steep..
dumb troll getting owned
I even posted that I want the jets to win this weekend, as I think the Steelers are a bigger threat to the pats than the jets are long term
