Darrelle Revis once called Bill Belichick a 'jerk' during TV interview
Darrelle Revis wasn't a big fan of Bill Belichick in 2012. During an interview that year, Revis described Belichick as a 'jerk.'
Hopefully Bill Belichick doesn't hold grudges or 2014 could be an awkward year for New England. The Patriots added cornerback Darrelle Revis on Wednesday, the same Revis who called Belichick a 'jerk' during a television interview in March 2012.
Revis then described Belichick as a 'Jerk.' Revis then went on to explain that he thinks Belichick is a jerk because of "Some of the comments he says about the Jets.'
Gronkowski was asked about Jets coach Rex Ryan, he didn't jump on the jerk train though, instead, he called Ryan an 'Entertainer.'
Back to Revis and Belichick though. The twosome also had some slight differences in 2011. After a 37-16 Patriots win over the Jets in Week 10 of 2011, the New York Post quoted Belichick as saying, "Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, s--- my d---."
That quote didn't sit well with Revis, who was quoted as responding to Belichick in the book 'Collision Low Crossers: A Year Inside the Turbulent World of NFL Football.'
"I think that's a jerk," Revis said of Belichick in the book. "Maybe some people think he's a good, collected guy off the field, but then why say such things? It's degrading. Suck my what? Say it to my face. That's not great character."
It seems like Belichick and Revis have ironed out their differences, but if they haven't, it could be a long 2014 season for one of them -- or both of them.
