    Darrelle Revis: "Team needs to shut up"

    "Quit talking crazy to the media, especially involving your teammates," he said during the question-and-answer portion of the event. "I think that's the worst, because when you do that, that's when it really gets divided. Because you don't know if you can trust your other teammate."

    That's not Ladainian as an ex-teammate sounding bitter. That's straight from Revis. Hard to argue with his logic.

    Revis is the best player in the NFL at his position, he can say what he wants. Nobody would rip Rodgers, Peterson, Watt, or Fitzgerald for speaking out. The NFL is not the NBA, it is the ultimate team sport, but certain guys are unimpeachable. And Revis is one of them

    There are smart disciplined teams and then there are teams like the Jets.

    The NY Post clown car cover nailed it before Week One.

    He is 100% correct. To rip teammates to the media doesn't solve anything just creates more chaos.

    What will you say when he holds us hostage again for the third time next year or two?

    Maybe he should be in the locker room telling this team what to do like a LEADER would instead of playing video camera games in luxury boxes.

    Well I'll say this. Revis is a HoF talent. He's proven it on the field. With contracts and negotiations, he's been tough and put us in a bind. If we have to absolutely get rid of him for the latter reasons, I guess it is what it is. But I don't want to hear that he's some type of negative or hurts the team or blah blah when he performs at All-Pro level and guys like Sanchez, Holmes, and Harris collect big money for being bad players. Hate Revis's agent, fine, but he performs at an elite level. I appreciate a guy who is brilliant at his position. I hope Revis recovers from the knee. I'd rather root for him than a bottom 5 QB in the league who gets paid like a top 5 one.

    For once we agree, although A. Smith, Watt, and Miller are stating their cases

    How was he supposed to support his team ? By sitting a home ?

    Apparently, you can't support your team while having a drink. I guess that means a good part of the sports fan world doesn't really support their team.

    Actually, when Peterson made those ridiculous comments comparing the NFL to slavery, many did rip him. Being good doesn't spare you from criticism.

    What did you find ridiculous about DRs comments essentially that his teammates should try less talk and more action on the field???

    yeah, guess it apparently makes more sense for a guy recovering from a concussion to get on an airplane and fly to Pittsburgh.

    Nothing. My post wasn't really directed at Revis. It was more so directed at SlickBri's comment that good players are immune from criticism.

    Indeed. Also, it was never reported how much he actually drank anyway. Seems like most assumed he was getting hammered.

    No one is spared. But playing at a high level helps. Revis is fair game for his holdouts plus injury. But come on, the guy is a great player, he has never dogged it or done anything less than been a great player.
