Revis Lands Verbal Jet on Brady and Patriots
Apparently the normal Patriots ‘gag order’ only works on current New England players..not the former ones. Because former Patriots, now returning Jets cornerback, Darrelle Revis said he’s not losing any sleep over Tom Brady’s four-game suspension.
“Everybody’s blowing it up because it is Tom Brady,” Revis told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “I understand that. But if [the NFL] feels he did the crime or he did something and they want to penalize them, then that’s that.
“The Patriots have a history of doing stuff, you can’t hide that. Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past.”
Really? So that means that everyone except the Patriots and their fans knows that the Patriots are nothing but, dare I say it? Cheaters. This coming from a future Hall of Famer, and formally one of their own.
Of course when such words like that are spoken by yours truly, a diehard devoted Steelers fan who respects the integrity of the game I get responses like this one:
Coming from a Patriots fan of course. Showing his love and devotion for his beloved team..as pathetic of a comeback it was.
But enough about me and my input on the matter, let’s return to the topic at hand.
Revis said he wasn’t aware of any PSI shenanigans, but said the franchise’s history had to have been a factor.
“New England’s been doing stuff in the past and getting in trouble,” Revis said. “When stuff repeatedly happens, then that’s it. I don’t know what else to tell you. Stuff repeatedly happened through the years. You got SpyGate, you got this and that and everything else. Obviously in those situations in the past, they had the evidence. So they did what they needed to do.”
I think I’m just going to leave it at that.
