Whoa, hold up. Who elected you the decider of who is and is not a a real Jets fan? We can't have one post on this board mentioning Darrelle Revis without you throwing shit at him and calling him things like "little street thug." Plus you failed to mention that the Jets were out rushed in 7 of the 10 losses. Again the reason the pass defense got better STATISTICALLY is because the opponents could run the ball at will. I don't understand what's so difficult to understand about that. Then again is Revis told you today was Thursday you'd swear he was a liar and that today was a Monday.
exactly. when teams are winning by 30 points cause the offense spotted them 3 TDs with buttfumbles they are gonna just run teh clock out. and teams were having veyr good success running the ball on us. The pass defense was ranked good becuase teams didn't pass much

I understand how math and business work, thank you.
You continue to miss my point in an effort to push yours. Everyone anticipated the contract would be reworked before the end of the 4th year. He wasn't going to sign that extension until he got paid his $16 million a year. I realize how the last two years of the deal are structured - and also remember the final year hasn't even happened yet. What I'm saying is it's moot and the fact he played under the deal last year was a shock to a lot of people. Coming off an injury, he won't and shouldn't settle for a pay cut from those first two years. That's the mindset of players who want to make as much money possible during their short shelf life. And it should be.
I'll happily eat crow if I'm proven wrong, but I don't see that happening.
you can't say that its a paycut based on the 1st 2 years. he got an 18 million dollar roster bonus for year 2 lol. his salary wasn't even high, it was all in bonus's, he sin't taking a paycut. he enver had a contract that averaged 16 million a year. the highest contract revis ever had is his current one at 12 mil a eyar. him and aso are the highest paid CBs at 12 mil a year. if he wanted 16 that would be a 25% raise, and even then its still way less then the 20 mil people are accusing him of wanting.
you realzie all you guys are doing is accusing him of asking for something he hasn't asked for? and using quoted from 3 years ago to try and prove a point?
Lets break it down to facts. only 100% facts, nothing else
1) revis contract is at 12 mil a season right now
2) revis and aso are the 2 highest paid CBs in the NFL at 12 mil a year
3) aso isn't getting a raise since he has 3 years left and dind't really play up to it anyway
4) when revis hist the free agnet market no CB will be gettign paid more then 12 mil a season
5) revis the best CB in the NFL
based on those facts revis deserves to be the highest paid CB in the NFL, however the highest paid is him currently at 12 mil a year. assuming he wants a raise which i wuldn't blame him for, nowhere can you say he wants 4-8 mil a year more. even 14 million a season is a good raise for him. PLus alot comes upfron in bonus's. if he signes a 5 year deal he'll probably get a 20-30 million dollar bonus cash in his pocket. agin its all speculation the main thing the FACTS provide is that the market value for a top tier CB stands at 12 million
