Jets’ Darrelle Revis Calls Patriots Coach Bill Belichick A ‘Jerk’
NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Tell us how you really feel, Darrelle.
Jets All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis called New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick a “jerk” this week during an appearance on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”
Revis was playing a word association game Wednesday with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski when the Jets star was asked to say what he thinks when he hears Bill Belichick’s name.
“Jerk,” Revis said.
He explained: “Just some of the comments he says about the Jets.”
Gronkowski said he “wasn’t expecting that one.” The Patriots star then answered “entertainer” when he was asked what he thinks of when he hears Rex Ryan’s name.
They were both asked about new Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow, and Revis said “a competitor,” while Gronkowski said: “Starting quarterback for the Jets.” Revis laughed and said, “That’s a good one.”
Revis also made headlines when he answered “disarray right now,” when given the term “locker room.”
“It was a circus, and it’s going to be more of a circus with him in the locker room,” Revis said of Tebow. “I’m not questioning his ability to play the game. He can flat-out play the game. But it is just going to bring more to the locker room every day, ‘Does Mark need to start? Does Tim need to start?’
“It is going to be an ongoing thing throughout the season.”
