Darrelle Revis Says Pats Coach Bill Belichick is a “Jerk”

Darrelle Revis was mum on his contract situation today, but what he did want to talk about was perceived disrespect from Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. During the offseason, he called the coach a “jerk” during a televised word association game according to Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger

He stood by his words when asked to clarify.

“I feel like people let him slide when he says his smart remarks and certain things and he says comments about us like he never coached here, which he did, and that’s how I felt,” Revis said. “They told me to sum it up and I gave one word. He can take it however he wants, he can say whatever he wants to say back and even if he says something back I’m not going to get into jarring with him, I said what I had to say, he still has to coach and I still have to go out there and play.

“Sometimes things are disrespectful when you say certain comments about the Jets, some stuff is disrespectful, it’s okay to have a rivalry, it’s okay to compete but when it gets personal, that’s when it gets disrespectful. I didn’t start this battle, you know, the smart remarks he says it’s ignorant, it’s ignorant to this organization.”

When asked what specifically Belichick said, Revis pointed to post-game remarks made by the coach last season on the field.

“The one talking about the best defense, they can suck my…all that stuff, that’s ignorant, why go there?” Revis said. “You won, fair and square, hey we shok your hand after the game. But when you start saying stuff like that it gets too personal. You don’t have to say that, did anyone else say anything like that? No. Not from our side. Bart said his can’t wait thing, but he didn’t disrespect, he said they felt like they were better than us, he didn’t say go suck…do this or do that. It’s personal, it’s disrespectful.”
