Revis rips Moss (again)

D. Revis (US Presswire)
Darrell Revis is back to ripping Randy Moss. After calling Moss a slouch during the offseason, Revis was critical on Wednesday of Moss’ Week 2 performance against the Jets. He told ESPNNewYork.com, "In the second half, you could tell he was putting his foot on the brakes. I mean, everybody knows that's Randy. Sometimes he plays 100 percent, sometimes he doesn't."

What’s interesting is that Revis witnessed the second half of that game the same way you and I did: on television. He was in the locker room getting his hamstring worked on. You know, the hamstring he pulled when Moss hauled in that spectacular one-handed touchdown catch?

We won’t harp on Revis here, though (well, not any further than that last jab, anyway). What he’s saying is, all in all, correct. Moss’ effort has been up and down throughout his career. And in the second half of that Week 2 showdown, Revis’ teammate, Antonio Cromartie, had his way with the lanky wideout.

"You can tell, you can see the effort," Revis said. "Playing football, you can see the body language and effort of people. If a guy's going hard or a guy is hesitant ... that's the way football is, the truth comes out. You could see it in that game."

Revis’ frank assessment (and can you believe we’re getting a frank assessment from a member of the New York Jets?!) raises a great philosophical question: if a cornerback talks trash about an opponent’s brand new wide receiver, and in doing so refers to a game when said receiver was with a different team, does it constitute bulletin board material?

Personally, I like both Moss and Revis. Those who insist that Revis hasn't done anything are simply ignoring the facts. Shutting down the impressive list of top notch receivers that Revis did last season is an accomplishment that you have to be impressed with. Moss twice, Chad Johnson twice, Andre Johnson , Terrell Owens twice, and a host of others. Not even the well proven Nmamdi Osomugha can boast such an accomplishment.

But the one knock that I have against Revis is the fact that when Moss embarrassed him during that showdown a couple of weeks ago, he conveniently reaches for his hamstring after the play. Yes...I know, we all know that he had an injured hamstring going into the game, but here's the thing.....

If Revis had played the entire game and held Moss in check, the first thing he would have done is brag to the world about how he shutdown randy on a bum hamstring, but since he was unsuccessful he felt the need to use the hammy as his excuse.

Just Man up Darrelle...Moss's catch was downright sick and even had you stayed with him stride for stride he still catches that pass. Hell, he grabbed it as if it was a sock. Never bobbled it!!!He just grabbed it like a hotdog.

Of course he said "2nd half" you moron, he got beat like you do by your mom in the "1st half" As far as having difficulty with reading goes, you have to learn to read between the lines, and not just the words you are trying so hard to pronounce.

2 catches for 38 yards in a half is getting beat, bigdog?  Wow.  I must not know anything about football.  And the 34 yard touchdown came on a play that Revis RE-INJURED his hammy, so, aside from that, Moss had 1 catch for 4 yards.  You're right, Revis was getting his ass kicked.
All I am saying is that Revis should watch what he says because it can be argued that Moss was giving less than 100% on that play and he blew by him like he was a CFLer. Revis is way overrated, just like his team.

You're so right.  It wasn't well known before the game that Revis had injured his hammy the previous week in the Baltimore game.  Good of you to keep harping on a single play, though.  It makes you smart.

I think Revis should have kept his mouth shut.  No doubt  he is good, but all he is doing is stirring the pot.  Anytime someone starts talking smack like that they end up eating their words.  And that is exactly what is going to happen Monday night, Moss is going to make him look like a fool.

while i would not be surprised if revis was hurt before the last game, and befoer the season- samybe there was a RWASON he led out all of training camp- an injury- and got all that cash? maybe?
to pull up lame, is about as lame as michael johnson pulling up lame vs ben johnson, in that one-on-one battle they had, when ben johnson was smoking michael johnson. Just too convenient.
I dont care who owns who. and who did what in one game vs another. Revis GOT POSTERIZED this season in the last game. And i dont care what happened last season, Revis has won ZERO trophies or rings in this league of any sort. He hold zero nfl records.
in my opinion this is not different than as if: lebron james called kevin garnett a scrub and a slacker.. think about that!
Jets and Revis have won NOTHING. shut ur mouth Jets!!!. Ray Lewis should come out and shut the jets up!!. Oh right.... week 1.... LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO
