Revis: Locker room in "disarray right now"

Darrelle Revis did his best to defend Mark Sanchez, praise Tim Tebow and explain the Jets locker room dysfunction at the end of last season, but in the word association portion of his ESPN SportsCenter interview Wednesday morning, the Jets cornerback was candid in his brevity. The word was “locker room.”

Revis paused. “Disarray right now.”

Earlier, Revis explained how things got out of hand at the end of last season as the relationship between Sanchez and wide receiver Santonio Holmes deteriorated.

“There were a lot of things going on with guys wanting the ball,” Revis said. When it’s like that and you’re losing it gets a little bit more frustrating, that’s all. People were just trying to find ways to win. Santonio wanted the ball. It wasn’t negative, I think he wanted to be the guy who wins games for us.

And then it blew up out of proportion and then it was Santonio is not siding with Mark, and it just blew out of proportion. And then (then-offensive coordinator Brian) Schotteheimer was in the mix of it too with the playcalling.”

The Pro Bowl player was in Bristol after being named as one of 16 finalists for the cover of Madden13. He is up against Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz in this round, and noted that the Jets lost to the Giants last season. He solicited fan votes by saying the Jets wouldn’t get a chance at a New York rematch this season.

“Please vote for me so I can beat them,” Revis said.

As for his newest teammate, Revis said he had a lot of respect for Tebow after the Jets lost to Denver last season.

“After the game, you got to give a guy credit and give him respect,” Revis said.

Revis was careful when he talked about a quarterback situation that may not help a locker room in disarray. He said he thought Tebow would ultimately help the Jets.

“I think (Tebow will) have a big impact on (Sanchez) in terms of just trying to maybe push him a little bit more,” Revis said. “Not to say that Mark needs to get pushed, but in a way that you know, Tebow is a winning quarterback. Mark is a winning quarterback too, you got to understand that Mark took us to two AFC championship games.

“I think both of them will just have to feel each other out. We’re probably going to try to figure that out during OTAs. And going into training and see how comfortable both of them are going into the season.”

Revis is clearly sensitive to the way positive comments about Tebow could be taken as negative in regard to the current starter, and Revis went out of his way to refute an anonymous team source last season who critiqued Sanchez and his work ethic.

“I know Mark personally,” Revis said. “and he’s there, we’re there sometimes at 7 p.m. — two hours after work — in the cold tubs and the hot tubs and he’s going over his playbooks, so I know Mark works hard. That’s no question about it.”

Let's take the one line that stirs the sh*t up and use it as the headline for the story. The truth is he said plenty of positive things in the piece. I ******* sometimes hate the hacks that cover this team.

Sometimes?

If I were running a Professional Football team I would be inclined to say "no" to every request for an interview or an appearance on ESPN, NFL Network, etc. Or - coach the kid on how to answer. Example: word association - word is lockerroom. Answer: smelly socks. Never, ever give the media's vulture culture anything to nibble on. Ever.

It's March.

But is it possible for the Jets to EVER shake off such a heinous debacle like the 2011 season? 8-8? They humiliated themselves, their families, the fans, their bosses, and the whole Tri-State area, and for that they have been cursed with eternal disarray.

Never before has a collapse like last year been seen. From a two time AFCCG loser to boot? Something terrible happened there. Something no one wants to speak of but SOMETHING happened to bring about such turmoil and disarray.

Looks like Revisa just confirmed there wqas some disagreement with the playcalling which means its probably been going on for years. getting rid of shotty should be part of the solution

Yeah. That'll fix it. Clearly Schotty was the whole problem or we would have never brought in Tebow to take 20 snaps a game. DUH.

Iunno man he had a pretty big playbook so that's putting a lot of pressure on guys to remember LOTS of arrows, x's, and circles.
