Jaguars Jason Hill calls Jets Revis “overhyped”

By Marc A. Greenberg

Consider Jacksonville Jaguars WR Jason Hill not a fan of New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis.

When asked about the reputation of Revis as the game’s best CB, Hill had some interesting words.

“I think sometimes they get overhyped,” Hill told the Florida Times-Union. “I talked to Drew [Coleman], Drew played there. He says it’s just the aura of New York. They got a big media. That’s not the Jacksonville paper, that’s the big New York Times paper so they get more pub. That’s what it is. It’s a game that we all play. He been playing the game, Revis, just as long as I’ve been playing. This is a game full of good players making plays. He just made a lot more plays on TV than we’ve made being here in Jacksonville. He’s a good player. We respect him. Hopefully he respects us because we’re going to bring it just like they’re going to bring it.”

“Him personally, he’s a good player, Pro Bowl player, I’m trying to make it to the Pro Bowl, too,” Hill said. “This’ll be a good game to put some notches on our belts too.”

Of course, Darrelle Revis got wind of these comments and had some parting shots for the 6 year WR with 55 career receptions:

“I don’t even know who that dude is. What’s his name again? I have no clue. I don’t know who he is, whatever he said is what he said. Whatever his opinion is of us, we’ll find out on Sunday,” Revis said, via Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. “I don’t care what he says, I don’t know him. He don’t know me, he don’t know the Jets, so he’ll find out on Sunday.”

Hill is listed as doubtful with a hip injury.
