    Revis: Jets lost because they had post-NE hangover

    wasn't it Revis who told the Patriots* that they had to "move on" after their game? well, guess what Darrelle...it's time for you to move on.


    Darrelle Revis: Jets were too 'relaxed'

    By Rich Cimini

    Yes, there was a post-New England hangover, according to Darrelle Revis.

    The New York Jets' star cornerback, speaking Thursday at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, said the team was "relaxed" during a listless first half in the AFC Championship Game.

    The Jets finished one win shy of the Super Bowl. With a busy offseason looming, let us know who should stay and who should go. Vote Now!

    Several players admitted after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers that the team came out flat, but they refused to connect it to the previous week's emotional and stunning upset of the Patriots -- until Revis.

    Asked by the NFL Network if there was a letdown after the divisional win in New England, Revis said, "I think ... you could say that. Yeah, you could say that. On people's body language, you can kind of see guys just relaxed. Guys are relaxed and didn't know what was at stake. That's why we came out so flat and we didn't finish strong."

    It's mind-boggling to think a team could lack emotion in a championship game, especially a franchise that hasn't been to the Super Bowl in 42 years, but the Jets got pushed around and fell behind 24-0. Unofficially, they missed 11 tackles in the first half, unable to slow the Steelers' powerful running game.

    Revis said several leaders spoke up in the locker room at halftime, including him, and the Jets made a game of it before losing 24-19.

    In his Pro Bowl interview, Revis revisited his summer-long holdout, claiming he was prepared to sit out the season if he didn't receive a new contract to his liking. He eventually signed a four-year, $46 million deal, finalized one week before the season opener.

    "Yeah, I mean, we prepared for the worst," said Revis, whose holdout was highly contentious. "[I] didn't think I was going to play this year."

    Asked if he would've sat out the season, he replied, "We was leaning on that way to do that. We didn't want it to go down that road, but I have to do what's best for me and my agents have to do what's best for me as well."

    "I just think the whole situation got out of hand, it really did," he continued. "That's why I wasn't in the media, not trying to say nothing, just keep quiet and relax and one day it's going to get done, and I'll be playing football again."

    Revis made the Pro Bowl for the third time in four seasons.

    No, No, didn't you read, aggie? They spotted us that lead because they were complacent, even though they said they wern't goign to be prior to the game, until it became an excuse as to why they lost. They couldn't have just *gasp* lost to a better team, or something. Everyone has to have a reason they lost, and that reason could never be because the other team was better.

    Don't you guys get it??

    The Steelers never beat anyone.

    Either the refs give it to us or the other team chokes/blow it/gives it away.

    He does realize (obviously not...) this makes the Jets appear worse. He just admitted that as a team they couldn't find a way to get up for the AFC Championship game and a trip to the SB. An earlier playoff win was much more important??

    Loser mentality.

    But it is more important to them to have a reason they lost, outside of being the worse team, then it is to look like they give a crap.

    If you aren't mentally tough enough don't come to the party.

    If beating the Pats drains you mentally you have no business thinking you should be in the Super Bowl.

    This is why Tomlin is such a good coach. He doesn't believe they have achieved anything yet and he has his players thinking the same way.

    What a crock. If you can't get up for the AFCC, then something is wrong. The Jets lost to a better team, period. See you next year, chump.

    Whatever happened about Tom Brady's foot? The media used it like an excuse much as the same way the Jets are making up excuses.
