QuoteDarrelle Revis is enjoying his time with the New England Patriots, but that's not what he originally had in mind.
The All-Pro cornerback acknowledged to the New York Daily News on Friday that he originally had his agent reach out to the Jets about a reunion, but they weren't interested in taking him back. Still, though the Jets were his first choice, Revis isn't disappointed in where he landed.
"It really doesn't matter," Revis said. "It's an organization. They are going to run it how they want to run it and choose who they want to choose. There's no hard feelings. You got to move on."
Though Revis said the adjustment to becoming one of his former AFC East rivals has been "weird," he's settling into his role and has been building strong relationships with his teammates.
"It doesn't matter what color you got on," Revis said. "I always look at it as long as I'm playing the game that I love, it really doesn't matter. I was on that side. You're not supposed to like your rival no matter where you play. I'm here now. All that is in the past. Right now, I'm a Patriot. I'm excited to be here."
And in even more exciting news for Pats fans, Revis also said his surgically repaired knee feels great and that he's "in the best shape in (his) career."
"Last year was really tough coming off the injury, even though I played in all 16 games," Revis said. "But it was just tough. I wasn't where I needed to be. Now I'm a little bit more excited. I feel butterflies more. I'm just ready."

QuoteSurvey: Most Republicans Who Bought Obamacare Coverage Like Their Plans
Dylan Scott – July 10, 2014, 11:08 AM EDT
About three-quarters of Republicans who obtained health insurance under Obamacare are satisfied with their coverage, according to a survey published Thursday by the Commonwealth Fund.
The survey found that 74 percent of Republicans said they were very or somewhat satisfied with their new coverage. Overall, 78 percent of Americans said they were satisfied: 73 percent of those enrolled in a private plan and 84 percent of those enrolled in Medicaid.
There was a minimal difference between the previously uninsured and the previously insured: 79 percent of the former were satisfied and 77 percent of the latter were, according to the survey by the group, which is generally supportive of Obamacare.
Those surveyed also reported being better off: 58 percent said that they were better off now than they were before, while 9 percent said they were worse off. And 81 percent said that they were optimistic that their new coverage would help them get the health care they need.
Some of the survey's broader findings, on the overall drop in the number of uninsured and the percentage of Obamacare enrollees who were previously uninsured, generally fell within other findings. It found that the uninsured rate for adults under 65 fell from 20 percent to 15 percent since Obamacare enrollment began. It also found that 63 percent of Obamacare enrollees had been previously uninsured.
The survey, conducted from April 9 to June 2, covered 4,425 U.S. adults.
Now just imagine how much they would love a single payer system like many other industrialized nations already have.

QuoteMornhinweg: Jets have a first-ballot Hall of Famer in Chris Johnson
Posted by Michael David Smith on July 5, 2014, 9:33 AM EDT
New Jets running back Chris Johnson says he’s confident the team will keep feeding him the ball this season. Given the way Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg talks about Johnson, that seems like a safe bet.
According to Mornhinweg, Johnson isn’t just a good running back. He’s an all-time great running back.
“He’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer,” Mornhinweg told ESPN.
That statement is, frankly, ridiculous, based on what Johnson has accomplished so far. Johnson has 7,965 rushing yards in his career, which is nowhere near enough to merit Hall of Fame consideration. (Jerome Bettis has almost 6,000 more yards than Johnson and has been voted down by the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.)
Maybe Mornhinweg means he thinks the 28-year-old Johnson will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer after a great few seasons with the Jets. Johnson considers himself capable of another 2,000-yard season, which would make him the only player in NFL history to top 2,000 rushing yards twice. If Johnson does that, we can start talking seriously about his merits as a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
28 is still a good age for a running back. So what was his problem with the Titans? Hopefully he can return to his old self and become a Pro-Bowler again for us before he turns 30.
