I guess all the talk the last few days with Rex Ryan suggesting that Revis might be the best Jet ever as ruffled a few feathers. I’m sure Namath might have something to say about this as well. Maynard is a Jet great, no knocking him but these guys now a days are bigger, stronger and faster. If Andre Johnson struggled against Revis then I’m pretty sure Maynard would. I don’t think he understands how brilliant some of these modern players are.
In any event, gotta love Don’s tenacity. The fire is still there. Gotta love it!
“Oh, yeah,” Maynard said. “It doesn’t matter if it was him or anyone else. I had a guy named Namath throwing me the ball. If he goes left, I go right. If he goes right, I go left — the ball would be there. And I’ve never been caught from behind. That’s why my book is called, ‘You Can’t Catch Sunshine.’ (Revis) is like Deion Sanders. I would’ve loved to have played against those guys.”
