Found November 09, 2011 on The Rap Sheet:
Jets CB Darrelle Revis just finished a conference call with reporters, and he was entertaining as usual. Asked if he’s the best cornerback in the NFL, he talks about humble he is, but agrees he’s the best. “That’s where I am in my life,” Revis said. As for his possible showdown with Wes Welker, he looked back to last time. Welker had a 73-yarder where he split Revis and safety Eric Smith and Revis made clear, “That’s on me.” As for his upcoming battle with the slot machine… “Last game, the matchup was great with Wes,” Revis said. “Sometimes, I was throwing him on the ground, sometimes, he was catching some balls on me. I called him the ‘Energizer Bunny’ because he never stops. It doesn’t matter what you do to him, he just keeps on coming and coming and we’re still putting in the game plan this week for us to try to attack these guys the way we want to. If I’m on him, I’m on him. If I’m not, it doesn’t matter, we have confidence in everybody on...

Bad news for Patriots WR Wes Welker: The Franchise Tag price has shrunk

We’ve spent a lot of time this year looking at Patriots WR Wes Welker’s worth. The NFL’s leader in receptions is in the final year of his contract, and it will be interesting to see how the Patriots compensate him after what is shaping up to be a career year. Yet if the Patriots and Welker’s representatives can’t reach a new deal, there is now some potential bad news for...

Wes Welker Likes Little People Waiters At His Parties

New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker is probably the shortest dude in the NFL. He’s listed as 5’9″, but he’s probably a little shorter than that. So what does he do when he throws a party? He hires little people as waiters. TMZ reports that Welker specifically requested the catering company put a couple people shorter than him on the waitstaff, which is what you’re...

Patriots WR Welker limited in practice

New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a rib injury. Walker absorbed a hard hit in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the New York Giants. He had sat out practice last Wednesday with a neck injury suffered in a game against Pittsburgh, but returned to practice the following day. The 30-year-old Welker leads the league in receptions...

Megatron, Revis are faces of NFL 2011

In the pass-happy NFL of 2011, it's a shame Megatron won't be visiting Revis Island. Calvin Johnson and Darrelle Revis have been the maestros of the league halfway through the schedule. The Lions wideout nicknamed Megatron has looked superhuman and is on a record receiving pace. The Jets All-Pro cornerback actually has been tested a few times, flunking quarterbacks and receivers...

Cromartie knows the key to stopping Wes Welker

Wes Welker’s insane receiving pace slowed down for a few games after he faced the Jets last time around. For two games, Welker caught only 12 passes 84 yards and a score. That’s not bad, but it’s not the record-breaking numbers we saw early in the season. Welker bounced back for a huge day against…

Revis on Welker: He’s the Energizer Bunny

  Darrelle Revis talked to the New England media about playing the Patriots and talked about Welker, Ochocinco and more.  You can listen to the audio of it here. When asked about Wes Welker, Revis was – of course – quite complementary. "Last game, the matchup was great between Wes," said Darrelle. "Sometimes I was throwing him on the ground, and sometimes he...

Take Two-sday: Too Reliant on Welker and Gronkowski?

Tom Brady is becoming too reliant on Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski, and the offense is struggling because of it.

Transcript: Revis, Tomlinson, Burress 11/10

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis, 11.10 On what the team is doing better since losing to New England… Just stopping the mental mistakes and we’re playing with a lot more confidence. We’re being a little bit more aggressive on defense. On whether the Patriots look vulnerable… Watching the film, you see how teams are trying to play them now a little bit. I see the Steelers...

Bruise cruise in the works for Patriots WR

Opponents are finding out good things can happen against the Patriots when you leave a few bruises on Wes Welker. And with one of the NFL’s most physical cornerbacks in Darrelle Revis leading the way, it sounds as if the Jets intend to become the latest team to take...

The Patriots Get Exposed

Let's get something clear here for a moment: Despite being tied for the division lead at 5-3, the New England Patriots are still probably going to make the playoffs. Four of their last five games are against teams with losing records (including the winless Colts in the most-flexworthy Sunday Night game ever), and they still excel at beating up on hapless opponents. That'...

Mangold solidifies O-line

Rex Ryan complimented Nick Mangold this week by calling him “the Darrelle Revis of centers.”With the way Mangold is playing for the Jets recently, it might be more accurate to call Revis the Nick Mangold of cornerbacks.If there was any question about his value to the Gang Green...
