Don Maynard may have picked up a thing or two about trash talking from Rex Ryan.

After hearing the current Jets head coach call Darrrelle Revis the greatest player in team history, the wide receiver told ESPN.com that he and Joe Namath would have done just fine, thanks, against the cornerback.

"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."

Ryan this week on NFL Network said of Revis, "One day we're gonna say that this is the best Jet in the history of the New York Jets."

Maynard and Namath are the only two primarily Jets players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Running back Curtis Martin, likely headed to Canton at some point, actually agreed with Ryan about Revis.

"As far as the best Jet ever, it's hands down (Revis)," Martin told the website. "Myself, Namath, Maynard, I don't think we were nearly as good at our positions as he is at his position. That's my honest opinion."

Namath has not publicly commented on Ryan's statement.

Ryan made his remarks as part of the NFL Network's countdown of the best 100 players of 2011. Revis is expected to land in the top 10, perhaps in the top five.

Martin said Revis could become one of the greatest players in the history of the NFL.

"It's too early to make this statement, but hypothetically, if he goes the next five years at the level he has displayed, when they do a top 100 of all-time -- not just this year -- he'll be in the top-five discussion," Martin said.

Revis was drafted in 2007 and has been named to three Pro Bowls. He was runner-up for NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2009 (behind Packers cornerback Charles Woodson).

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Maynard was one of the fastest players of his era and excelled despite playing in a period where defensive backs could basically "mug" receivers whereever they went on the field as long as the ball wasn't in the air.

I'm not saying Maynard would have had a lot of success against Revis, but let's not make him out to be Kurt Sohn, either.

The guy was an all-time GREAT receiver.

So you wouldn't define him as a "lunch pail" type player then?

No and No. :lol:

I think he'd have a serious problem with Revis covering him, though. Especially if Revis got to mug him all the way downfield, like they did in those days.

I heard that Maynard was bad a$$ though. I'm not saying Revis couldnt cover him, but from what I hear, Maynard was a terror on the football field.



My personal opinion as stated last year, I think Revis will go down as the greatest CB ever....so I think Maynard may be shooting air out of his behind alittle bit here.

Kinda like when Revis was son'ing T.O. when we was a Bill. Every time Revis was able to get a legal shot in he took it and laid Owens on the turf every time.


And more to Revis credit, you can barely touch these WR's today yet you cant shake this dude.

+1, thank you. And please note that Maynard stipulated that when he faced Revis, Joe Namath had to be throwing to him. Joe Namath who threw hardballs while still backpedaling. Possibly Maynard never saw a CB like Revis, (though the Raiders' Willie Brown was outstanding), but I assure you Revis has never seen a combination like Namath to Maynard.

I don't think this is an example of Maynard being old or senile. The reasons why Revis is better than Sanders are irrelevant for purposes of covering Maynard. It would probably pretty much be a speed cover corners game. Run support isn't going to matter much. LOL at Maynard being "plucky"or "gritty" and comparing him to the White Wes Welker. The guy was a flat out burner. Randy Moss is a better comparo.
