Obviously disagreeing with Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall’s opinion that Darrelle Revis gets the “Jordan Rule” when it comes to favorable treatment on questionable penalties, the New York Jets cornerback came back at Marshall with an NBA reference of his own.
“He called it ‘The [Michael] Jordan Rule,’ but I call it ‘The Kobe Bryant Rule,”’ the Jets’ All-Pro cornerback said with a laugh Thursday.
“Both sides do things all the time,” Revis said. “One thing that Brandon Marshall does on routes is he pushes off. But I’m not going to use that as an [excuse]. It’s just something I know in his game he does. He’s a big receiver, so he pushes off sometimes. That’s just part of the game. And some DBs, we hold. It goes [both ways].”
Revis doesn’t feel he is immune from yellow flags, either.
“I have had a number of pass-interference penalties called on me this year,” he said. “The game is fast on both sides of the ball, and you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.”
