Darell Revis On the Verge of Signing (Just in Time For Hard Knocks)

Chris McGrath/Getty Images
The news that Jets fans have been waiting to hear since the start of training camp. Our prized player, the coolest cornerback in the league, Darelle Revis, is close to signing.

There have been whisperings all night of a meeting between my boy Darelle's agent meeting with the Jets tonight to lock this thing up.

Some other writers have been shooting this down, which gives the impression that no one knows what the hell is going on.

Now news is coming out from Mort's twitter:

Bob Pompeani or @KDPomp of KDKA (Pittsburgh - where Revis played college ball) tweeted he "hears" deal is 10-yrs, $150m, $65m guaranteed

Before Jets fans start running around town causing havoc this is NOT DEFINATE but when there is smoke there is usually fire and this one is burning up.

My personally opinion is that the Jets knew what would get Darelle signed, they waited until Hard Knocks was about to air so that the show could help break the news. They will be painted as the good guys and Revis will be back.

I have a gut feeling on tonights Hard Knocks you will see Revis become a Jet for life.

This media blackout may have actually helped get the deal done but the downside is that the public is in the dark.

J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets

After letting Sunday's loss to Indianapolis set in I started to think of next year already. The Jets have nothing to be down about, they lost I know, but what a run the last 5 weeks. And what a good off season it should be waiting and talking about 2010-2011.
What impressed me the most about the team was their ability to hit. Now I know every team in football can hit, but the Jet's players seem to really lay the wood on the opposition. When a Colt's player was hit by a Jet he seemed to always get up slow. The Jets defense is young is most areas and will be an even larger force in the NFL next year. I would even go so far as calling the Jets the favorite to win their conference. On offense Mark Garcia showed flashes of brilliance Sunday with some great throws and smart throw aways. Let's face it, beating Peyton Manning at home in the play-offs is a big task. On Sunday he was too much but the Jet's day is coming. With a good draft and some smart off season moves the Jets will be ready to be #1 in New York and the NFL.

Revis Island

As you all know the Jets are playing the Colts this weekend. It is sure to be a great matchup. The Colts and Peyton will try to break down the Jets #1 defense with their passing game while the Jets will try to tire their line by relentlessly pounding the ball in. The key matchups that I am picking for this weekends game is the Jet's secondary vs the Colts receivers. We just faced Gates and did a fairly good job covering him now The Jets can do the same thing with Dallas Clark. Everyone knows "No one escapes from Revis Island" so Reggie Wayne is not going to be a problem. Garcon and Collie will be the real test. If Lito Shepard can step up this game and keep them in check then there really will be no place for Peyton to go. One of the best photoshops I have done is below (click here for a full size look at her beauty) (here is the original; just for fun) . It is a celebration of the Jets this year and their strong defense. A win this week will send them to the Super Bowl; a destination almost unimaginable by Jets fans. Let's Go JETS.

J-E-T-S

Though I don't really talk about this much but I love the Jets. I don't know nearly as much about football as baseball even though I watch every Jet game and a lot of other games. Their stifling D has gotten them to the AFC championship. Rex Ryan has put a new face on this team and no longer do I feel wrought with worry (except when Sanchez starts to move out of the pocket). They go on to face the Colts next week to see if the D can hold up against Peyton. The Jets Blog has a great video up of the attitude that Coach Ryan is bringing to this team, he says: "The three home teams made it....and the f---ing JETS!".












The Jets are playing great football and have come a long way since the start of the season.

A-Rod Getting Down to Earth

Just a small interesting piece of news, A-Rod has placed his private Jet up for sale according to the Post. Alex is the co-owner of a 1987 Gulfstream IV and he is asking for $16 to $20 million for it. An interesting facet to this story is that A-Rod bought the jet from Arik Kislin who has Russian Mob connections.

J-E-T-S

Nate and I are both big Jets fan and today is the start of a new season for Gang Green. This season is looking good by the great off-season moves especially acquiring Brett Favre and the improved offensive line. The Jets start the season facing the rebuilding Dolphins in Miami. Farve is going up against former Jet and power arm QB Chad Pennington. This is a must win for the Jets because if the can't beat Miami who can they beat.
