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.”

What do you think of Revis’ comments? Sound off below…

    Revis–stick to football and not to talking.

  • larrym

    Revis may be a talented player, but it’s painfully obvious that his mouth is larger than his brain.

  • Rick M

    Belicheck dose not come off as a mean person but he hasn’t won the Super Bowl since caught Cheating, and he runs the score up on games he has well won uneccessarily which makes him a person of lets say Not good Sportsmanship. Which could easily be summed up as a “Jerk”. Rex Ryan is a loudmouth but a likeable person. So they both have their short comings.

    J-E-T-S We won a Super Bowl !!! Oh yeah along, long time ago.


    Revis GROW UP

    Belichek is vastly overrated, typical of the Boston self-conscious insecurity having their firm tradition of choking and never winning. Except for the Celtics, which also has one of the most hated group of players by fans outside of Boston. I travel selling sports gear so I speak from what people say to me, not what I believe.

    It’s refreshing to hear someone say it like it is. I’m a Giant Fan, but Revis can play on my team anytime.

  • Gianni

    How many Super Bowls has Bellicheck been a part of? How many has Revis been a part of. Guess I’d rather have the “jerk” and not the loud mouth. I

    • Rick M

      How many super Bowls has bellicheck won since caught CHEATING???

  • ExiledTexan

    It does not matter in the end, but bottom line, Bill is a “jerk”..not to mention and unconscionable, irreverant excuse for a human being. It is sad, but there you have it.

  • bmon

    It’s not like Belechick had his coaches tripping opposing players from the sidelines or something. Can’t recall a single negative comment fro Beleckick about ANY team. Never heard his disrespect the J-E-T-S.

  • Rob Liano

    And this sums up why the Jets failed “It was a circus,”

  • shuffle al

    I thinker that it is about time for Rex Ryan to recognize the obvious. Bill Belichick is a superior coach and certain Hall of Famer. Time to kiss the rings, Rexie. Pucker up!

    • ron foss

      u got it right shuffle al

  • HeardEnough

    What exactly has Belichick ever said about the Jets? Brady? Sure! And Rex talks about hating the Pats and everyone else. But Belichick never says anything about anybody…

  • Wendell

    Back at you Revis

  • DougS

    I loved Revis while at Pitt and nothing has changed. The best athlete on the Jets.

  • A "Going Postal" Worker

    Revis is NEVER going to be known as a diplomat.

    That being said, I’m a Giants fan – but I believe thta Revis’ comments about Bill ‘CAUGHT CHEATING’ Belicheck are dead-accurate.
