    That's not Ladainian as an ex-teammate sounding bitter. That's straight from Revis. Hard to argue with his logic.
    Makes perfect sense to me. Suppose one of your co-workers was reporting the inside problems of your workplace to a bunch of news reporters, how would you feel about that person? Slauson expecially needs to shut his stupid mouth, everytime you turn around this less than stellar player is turning his players in for something to the press. Where is Rex Ryan in all of this? Shouldn't he pull Slauson aside and say "The next time you shoot your damn mouth off to the press around here you are going to find yourself walking to your car without your damned uniform son because you won't be playing here anymore!".

    Ryan needs to come down on these fools who turn their teammates in to the press. Nobody wants to play or work with rats, and that's all these guys who do this are.

    Does anyone think that revis was at this bar for the sole purpose of just getting wasted? I am sure there was some promotional event he was there for

    This team has no leaders. None.

    The stuff that Darrelle is talking about does not happen when you have real leaders, no matter how much of an @ss the coach is.

    T Rich, Jones, Woody, Cotchery.

    If someone called a players only meeting on this team they would get laughed at.

    Translation = Hey Guys...I need to hold out in a few months. Please shut up so they think the team is close and actually needs me.

    LOL!

    Still don't get the McElroy hate. He spoke the truth when asked while acting as a commentator at a college game. He didn't go annonymous with a reporter in an alley. He was actually giving a positive message to college fans on a darker side of the NFL they should avoid.

    I'd love to see him out there, he was tough as nails in that one PS game. But he really must not be showing anything in practice. Zero first team snaps this week.

    And hopefully he is playing for someone else next year.....part of the rebuild, you know.

    Imagine if the Jets were the Rangers for a minute and someone was talking anonymously about the team while Messier was captain?

    Acting as a leader one year late is better than not acting like one at all.

    Rex gave Mangold, Dbrick, Harris, and Revis big time dollars, It is good that Revis at least stepped up. Mangold saying it was "too bad it happened" (paraphase) was not strong enough IMO.

    Revis also touched on the possibility of still making the playoffs, which is a good sign that the team has not given up.

    YES! Sitting at home supports the team more than going out and drinking in a bar.

    Maybe he could have used that time more wisely like simply resting his brain from such a serious injury.

    It screamed of "I DONT GIVE A F" or "I"M SO FN STUPID THAT I WILL DRINK ALCOHOL EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A CONCUSSION"

    Best player in the NFL? Please

    Best players dont act this way

    You think the modern day greats would act this way?

    You think Le Bron, Jeter, Michael Jordan, or Peyton Manning would be sippin on Petron and pinapple in public while their teammates were leaving everything they had on the field?

    You dont think it would be an issue?

    Just another example of the inmates running the asylum under Rex and Woody.

    Drinking alcohol in public nursing a concussion?

    The ultimate "I DONT GIVE A F WHO SEES ME, MY COACH, THE FANS, WHOEVER"

    You have no idea what builds champions.

    Setting an example does.

    Revis is wrong, period, and has a history of putting himself way in front of the team.

    But I get it, in your world he has tons of talent so he gets a pass.

    Championships are not built with questionable character.

    Championships are built with character like that of Cotchery, TRICH, Damian Woody.

    He's not the best defensive player in the NFL.

    The only Championship we won was won by Joe Namath. If your going to argue that Joe Namath wouldn't go to the bar ever, or that he never put himself in front of the team, then I wish you luck in your battle.

    Putting aside the issue of drinking alcohol after a concussion (sounds like it's not a great idea, but I wasn't there), how is sitting at home any more supportive of your team? Neither one of them affects the team's in-game performance in any way. The argument could be made that watching at a bar and publicly rooting is far more supportive.

    Regarding your examples:

    • LeBron would've been at a club, definitely rapping, possibly drinking.
    • Jeter would've been out all night with some hot celebrity chick(s), possibly drinking.
    • Jordan probably wouldn't have been drinking, but he would've been at a casino gambling all night.
    • Manning would've been too busy shooting a commercial to drink (in all seriousness, this is your only good example ... Manning probably would've been breaking down tape).

    Jesus, you've made me go out of my way to defend a Jet.

    At any rate, discounting what he said (which was obviously right on the money) because he went to a bar is exactly why your team acts the way it does; too many fans make excuses for them.

    The type of "intelligent talk" that is ruining the board.

    You called me a name from behind the computer screen, great response....

    Will 24 be ready to play in the postseason after this team gains traction and rides 9-7 or 8-8 into the playoffs.

    Anybody remember the Giants of last year?......

    GO JETS!!!!

    He had a concussion. The best way to get back onto the field was simply resting. If it were another injury, I would have suggested he help the team or himself in anyway including rehabbing the injury, watching game film, etc. Something that related to his profession that could have been productive.

    As for your examples, all of it is what you've made up. Peyton Manning filming a commercial? Really?

    The reality is that Revis could have done a thousand things that were related to the JETS, something productive, something that would have set an example, and the most appropriate considering it was a head injury was to just rest at home.

    Imagine if a guy like Kyle Wilson who is struggling and has been metored by Revis observed that even in injury, Revis did something to get himself better.

    I think we all can agree that drinking alcohol cannot be good for a concussion.

    It also doesnt look good when your team is losing on the field and you have a dink in your hand in a bar.
