Darrelle Revis just can’t help himself.
In response to Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s noteworthy interview with Erin Andrews, Revis not only commented on Sherman’s antics, but also says he’s still the best cornerback in the game.
Here’s what he said about Sherman:
“Don’t get me wrong he’s an entertainer, but he shouldn’t have said that. The reporter asked him a question about the team and he went on to answer about me, me, me, me. So that is how I took it. He didn’t answer the question in the right way.”
Wait, did Revis just complain about another player only caring about themselves? That’s ironic since Revis is notorious for holding out. He held out for 3 weeks before he even played a down for the Jets in 2007.
Then in 2010, he held out and missed all of training camp as well as the entirety of the pre-season. It got to the point with the Jets that the organization didn’t want to deal with him anymore so they traded him away. Fans of the team criticized Revis for wanting the money instead of wanting to win. Those same fans even coined the nickname “Mevis”.
What would a Darrelle Revis comment be without him once again pro-claiming himself to be the best, which he did again.
“I feel like I’m the best. Deion Sanders probably feels like he is the best. Everybody has their own personal opinion. And that is how you go with it and I think that is what makes it fun,” Revis said.
This here is a good point and it’s probably the mentality you have to have in order to be a cornerback in the NFL. If you don’t believe in your mind that you’re the best and can cover any receiver in the game, then you’re already a step behind.
