Darrelle Revis has been one of the NFL’s best players at his position for a long time, but the first two games of the Jets‘ 2016 season have not gone well for him. Revis was torn to shreds by A.J. Green in Week 1 — Green caught all eight of his targets for 83 yards when covered by Revis, per Pro Football Focus tracking — and then, on Thursday night, he got burned badly on a deep ball by Bills speedster Marquise Goodwin.
Approximately 21 hours later, Revis clapped back:
Credit where credit is due for the burn. Revis is definitely Canton-bound and Smith is … incredibly not headed to Springfield (where the Basketball Hall of Fame is).
But damn, Darrelle, it took you 21 hours to figure out a way to fire back at J.R. SMITH? He might be the easiest guy on the internet to hit with a comeback. We’ve got to take some points away for taking so long to think that one up.
