Revis to Branch - Take the loss like a man

The Jets-Patriots playoff game ended Sunday night with a surprise Jets victory, but the talk still has not stopped.


Get caught up on all the action from the divisional-round games.

Several Jets players scoffed on Monday at the claim Patriots receiver Deion Branch made after the game that some of the Jets celebrated in a "classless" manner.

"Just take the loss like a man and move on," Darrelle Revis said. "[The Patriots] do stuff as well. I don't know who was doing it or whatever, but if so, whatever. If they would've won, I'm sure they probably would've done the taunting like they did that last game we played them.

"Their secondary was doing the airplane and just teasing us. So you've got to take it both ways, when you win or lose."

Revis was referring to the Patriots' 45-3 win on Dec. 6, when some of their defensive backs mocked the Jets afterward by copying the Jets' airplane celebration.

Branch, when asked if he was embarrassed after the loss, said, "I'm just frustrated. The embarrassing part came from a few classless guys [on the Jets] after the game. There were a lot of classless things that went on after the game ended."

A number of Jets players recalled the Patriots' antics and laughed at any notion they did anything differently than the New England players.

"That's the same Jet thing they were doing last game and they call us classless?" defensive lineman Trevor Pryce said.

"We have film of it. We watched them do it, watched the film the night before [sunday's] game. I don't see why it's such a big deal now when they were doing it. If they had won the game, they'd have called us classless."

"All the guys on the sideline were like, 'Remember this, remember everything they're doing right now,' " Cotchery said. "A lot of people didn't see it, but we took mental notes of it. A lot of those emotions spilled over throughout the week last week. We could've kept a lot of those things in, but we were very fired up about that game.

"We were just enjoying the win, enjoying the moment. For someone to try to create that perception that we're classless, that's heart-breaking."
