Revis gets best of T.O.

There’s not too much to say about the Jets 26-10 win against the Bengals.

New York looked good, but not that good. Cincinnati, for most of the night, looked horrendous (did Marvin Lewis really not challenge a call, because he couldn’t find his red flag, as at least one Bengals reporter alleged *? That can’t be right. I mean, right?). The Jets got some breaks. The Bengals did not. Not that any of this would have mattered, because the Jets are a Super Bowl contender and the Bengals probably will be looking for another coach in abot six weeks or so.

*Afterward, Lewis said he didn't challenge because he knew the ball touched Andre Caldwell before the Jets recovered. Not sure I'm buying it**.

**The entire myth seems to have crumbled. Apparently, the coaches in the booth told him not to challenge. 

But we have to follow up on the Darrelle Revis-Terrell Owens matchup. You’ll recall that Revis called Owens a slouch in the offseason, and this past week, Owens said Revis was an average cornerback. Just because Owens wasn't completely wrong so far this season, nobody else on earth would have seen Revis in that same light (mostly, because Revis is still the best CB in the league).

Tonight, Owens had the chance to prove that his words were correct. Not surprisingly, he failed miserably, making just three catches for 17 yards (with a long of eight yards).

And, in reality, he kind of pissed off Revis with his “average cornerback” talk.

“All the trash talk leading up to this, I didn’t agree with that,” Revis said on the NFL Network’s postgame show. “When T.O. said all that crap, it stirred me up.  I felt like I was disrespected. I really did.”

And as far as the slouch comment? Was that a fair comment?

“At that time, I believe so,” Revis said. “I think everybody saw that last year on the field. He would give up on plays. If the ball wasn’t coming to him, he wasn’t finishing out his route.”

Perhaps at this point we’ll just stop listening to Owens, who is just as irrelevant as the rest of his teammates.

Shocker. But in TO's defense, he does have one of the fastest declining QB's in the league.

What game did you guys watch? Revis did not shut T.O down. If you had watch the game Revis had help the whole game. T.O had him beat two times for long passes and once in the end zone. Each time someone else knock the ball down. Revis was beat on each play. If you don’t like T.O, just say you don’t like him. Don’t give credit to a guy who had inside help the whole game.

Revis gets best of T.O.

"Not surprisingly, he failed miserably..."  Gee, Josh, maybe not surprisingly to you or me, but you should have had a word with the fantasy experts at CBS - and elsewhere.

The two fantasy experts at CBS each predicted 15 fantasy points for T.O. (90 yds & a TD), the four sports writers who do the rankings at ESPN all had T.O. high as did the projections at Fantasy Football Today.  When I see that kind of unanimous opposition to my own thinking, I'm open minded enough to reevaluate my position, figuring I must be overlooking something.

But I still couldn't bring myself to start T.O, subbing Santana Moss or Hines Ward if Moss can't go.  They can't do much worse the T.O.  I'm stunned that so many experts missed the obvious!
