Darrelle Revis trashes Bill Belichick (again)

Darrelle Revis.

Typically, the Jets wait until at least training camp to trash on the Patriots.

New York cornerback Darrelle Revis,  however, has already done so twice this offseason.

Back in March while a guest on ESPN, Revis called New England head coach Bill Belichick a “jerk” while playing a word association game with the host and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Thursday Revis stood his ground on the comments and added that Belichick was “disrespectful.”

“Winning is winning,” Revis said regarding Belichick. “But sometimes things are disrespectful. When you say certain comments about the Jets, some stuff is disrespectful. It’s okay to have a rivalry. It’s okay to compete. But when it gets personal, you’re getting disrespectful. I didn’t start this battle. The smart remarks sometimes he says are ignorant. It’s ignorant to this organization.”

Revis was referencing Belichick’s celebratory comments in the 2011 season after New England beat the Jets 37-16 at the Meadowlands.

“Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league. S*** my D***!” is what Belichick was heard saying coming off the field that November night.

“Talking about the best defense, they can suck my … All that stuff, “Revis said. “That’s just ignorant. Why go there? You won fair and square. Hey, we shook your hand after the game. We’ll see you in New England or wherever in the playoffs, OK? But when you start saying stuff like that, no … it gets too personal. You don’t have to say that. Did anybody else say anything like that? No… not from our side. Bart (Scott) said his thing … “can’t wait” thing. But he still didn’t disrespect. He just said that they feel like they’re better than us. That’s okay. He didn’t say go suck— go do this or go do that. It’s personal. It’s disrespectful.”

When asked about teammate Antonio Cromartie’s comments over a year ago about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady being an “A**hole,” Revis said:

“Sometimes he do (act like an a**hole) on the field.” That’s his personal opinion about him. If that’s how he acts on the field, that’s how he acts. He wants to throw a touchdown and point at our sideline. That’s disrespect man. That’s not sportsmanship.”
