[quote]Time for Ryan to bring Revis back home to Jets

Rex Ryan showed up at Bart Scott's doorstep one minute after midnight to recruit him to the Jets two years ago.

Because desperate times call for desperate measures, Ryan should find out where Darrelle Revis is hiding and show up on his doorstep -- maybe with Scott and Kris Jenkins in tow -- and implore him to join the Super Bowl party he plans on throwing this season.

Wherever Revis is, we know he isn't in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. But if a 40-year-old gunslinger armed with a fear of failure can be wooed back to his field of dreams by three teammates (not to mention the prospect of becoming a $20 Million Man), maybe a wondrous 25-year-old cornerback who isn't being shown the guaranteed money can be convinced to escape from Revis Island, finally, and follow his Pied Piper head coach back to where he belongs.

Except for his farfetched suggestion two weeks ago that Revis and his agents and owner Woody Johnson and general manager Mike Tannenbaum conduct a negotiation in front of the entire team, Ryan has been reluctant to get involved. But Ryan, more than anyone, should be the front man now. The one hope . . . the only hope . . . the Rexorcist.

Remember, In Rex They Trust.

Johnson and Tannenbaum brought in Antonio Cromartie, whose entire family was discarded by the Chargers, and Santonio Holmes, who was exiled by the Steelers for a pair of Ryan's Chuck Taylors, and LaDainian Tomlinson, bless his 31-year-old heart and legs, and Jason Taylor, who used to hate the Jets as much as Tom Brady does now. You get the feeling that if Charles Manson were a free agent cornerback, they would sign him too, and trust Ryan to get Manson to Play Like A Jet and run through a brick wall for him.

The Jets have a preseason game tonight against the Redskins and Revis won't be playing. Their regular season opener is 17 days away.

It is time for a Hail Rexy.

If Revis is in the area, Ryan can drive over early today, or tomorrow. Otherwise, Johnson should put him on a plane first thing tomorrow morning. The coordinators can handle the film review.

The mere gesture would speak louder than any words other than: "Darrelle, Mr. Johnson has decided to give you more guaranteed money than you'll know what to do with." It would ring true with players who do not understand why the organization has not been willing to put enough of its guaranteed money where its mouth has been.

But what would Ryan say to Revis?

He can start by telling him that he needs him as the crown jewel of a defense that has a chance to go down in history. That no matter what he has uttered for public consumption, he doesn't want to start rookie Kyle Wilson as Cromartie's bookend. And yet, remind him in the next breath that the season isn't about to be cancelled if Revis doesn't show up, that he will be chasing that elusive Super Bowl with blunt force trauma no matter who or what dares to stand in his way.

(Pass those bad boy cheese and crackers please, Darrelle).

He can tell him that Mark Sanchez has grown into a battlefield commander.

He can tell him that while he admires a man of principle, it would be something short of a tragedy were Revis to sit out the season and never be the same player again. And who knows, maybe never play for him and the Jets again.

He can tell him that he belongs in Florham Park, with his teammates, playing in the New Jets Stadium, for championship-starved fans who would rather worship him than paint him as greedy and selfish, who all turn into Fireman Ed whenever Randy Moss finds No. 24 in his jockstrap, on the biggest stage that the biggest stars crave.

He can tell him that every man has to do what he feels is in his best interests. But in the next breath remind him that D'Brickashaw Ferguson and, now, Nick Mangold are in the fold, Jets For Life, willing to take the risk that Revis has been unwilling to take without fully guaranteed insurance.

He should bring Revis' 24 jersey with him, all tidy and ironed, and ask him to put it on to see if it still fits.

Ryan peered into an empty Cortland dormitory room on the first Hard Knocks episode and said softly: "Come on, Revis. Come on home. Let's go."

Now he should tell him that face to face, man to man, coach to player.

A Hail Rexy is worth a shot.

the difference is you just repeated what the talking heads say so I guess you like to sniff theirs while on the other had Ive said over a decade ago and i don't watch talking heads. its my own truth which now most of you young fans have come to realize. But aside of that I was just pointing out that many times we are on the same page, its just you like to argue.
[/quote]

It's not your "own truth" because it's been said for over a decade. It's been said by many people since the 1980s when more and more players in the major American sports leagues started getting million dollar contracts. It's nothing [i]you[/i] came up with. Hell it's been said on this board many times before.

It doesn't take some conspiracy theory nut to figure out billionaires own the teams and millionaires play the games on those teams.

There was an interview w. Jason Taylor on SNY having a 'keep it real' session.

His comments on the Revis situation was, he's a proven vet, and while practice is important, there are guys that can afford to miss practice, and there are guys that arent. Revis is a guy that could afford to miss some practice and some meaningless preseason games.

He wasn't saying that it's a positive thing, but merely that Revis missing a bit of time won't be the biggest of deals. If anything, it's given the young guys the mindset of being a starter and playing valuable minutes.
[/quote]

Didn't Michael Strahan avoid training camp like the plague during his playing days (or at least the latter years)? I suspect it won't take long for Revis to get back up to full speed once he reports, when that is though who knows.

In regards to Cowlishaw, it looks as though he's trying very hard to save face. If Revis isn't signed by Saturday he's going to have some explaining to do.

Yes he argues over a matter which he was not a member of in 1999 or 2000 when we talked about the fact about billions vs millions concerning players and owners.he is a young and dumb arrogant boy at best.

Just keep in mind that the millionaires playing the game dont have to put lout their money for new stadiums, etc. The billionaires do.

Either way the millionaires dont need to be ridiculous type millionaires like MEvis is being. He will not be ready for week 1 in my opinion. He's got ability but he's not in game shape.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

the fact that he wasn't dressed for this game vs. the Skins is a bit troubling.

i agree that he won't be in game shape when he gets back. it's evident, really. hopefully he gets signed before the last preseason game we have, just to get the reps in.

Taxpayers are usually the ones that fund new stadiums (like Lucas Oil Stadium). So in a way the players do pay for the stadiums since they pay taxes and being millionaires they pay higher taxes than most people. Plus I don't think Woody Johnson and the Mara family are hurting in the wallet even after paying over a billion dollars for a new stadium. Unlike Revis, if the football thing doesn't work out for Woody Johnson he always has the Johnson & Johnson fortune and his investment firm there to fall back on.

You sound like Gary Busey on Entourage with the random posts you make. This becomes more of a life coaching discussion than Darrelle Revis discussion.....can we keep it relevant to the thread and keep the other stuff to the "Off-Topic Thread" that is all your own?

Just keep in mind that the millionaires playing the game dont have to put lout their money for new stadiums, etc. The billionaires do.

Either way the millionaires dont need to be ridiculous type millionaires like MEvis is being. He will not be ready for week 1 in my opinion. He's got ability but he's not in game shape.

Saying that though, do the billionaires really need to pump in huge amounts of money into building extravagant stadiums. While the New Meadowlands Stadium and Cowboys Stadium are very impressive from the pictures I've seen on them, do they really need to have features such as the biggest overhead videoboard (in the case of the latter)? Fans go to watch a game, not to watch a humungous screen.

I see how this most important Revis thread had turned into the Stadium financing , please can we get back to this main subject about Revis and not the nonsense you boys like to ramble on about. what no one is talking about Revis because there is no news . a bunch of Piss and Vinegar .
