NEW YORK (WFAN) — Jets owner Woody Johnson doesn’t think New York’s AFC Championship game loss was “anyone’s fault.” Cornerback Darrelle Revis has a different opinion.
“On people’s body language, you can kind of see guys just relaxed,” Revis told the NFL Network on Thursday. “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.”
The Jets lost the the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, 24-19, thanks in part to New York’s listless first half.
Revis said several leaders, including him, tried to rally the Jets at halftime.
The Jets star cornerback also said that he was “prepared for the worst” this offseason if New York didn’t offer him a contract to his liking.
“[I] didn’t think I was going to play this year,” Revis said. “I just think the whole situation got out of hand, it really did.”
Revis and the Jets eventually agreed to a four-year, $46 million contract, ending his holdout just one week before the season opener.
