View Full Version : Darrelle Revis vs Mike Francessa

Never a dull moment with these Jets.

First, Rex Ryan knocks Norv Turner and increases his imaginary ring total by two.

Now this.

http://www.businessinsider.com/nfl-darrelle-revis-gets-upset-and-hangs-up-on-radio-icon-2011-10

Video is inside (maybe someone can embed for me).

To put this in context, Francessa has a terrible relationship with the Jets organization and never interviews any of their players.

Also, following the incident, the Jets released a statement apologizing for pulling Revis from the interview: Earlier today, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was being interviewed by Mike Francesa of WFAN. Francesa was pushing Revis on the question of whether he committed pass interference on the pass he intercepted and returned 100 yards for a touchdown against the Dolphins on Monday night.

Eventually, Jets P.R. intervened and advised Revis to hang up.

Jets director of public relations Jared Winley has issued the following statement on the matter, a copy of which was forwarded to PFT: “In my judgment, given the tone of the interview, I should have asked Mike to move on to another topic, instead of instructing Darrelle to hang up the phone. That was an error on my part. I’ve called Mike’s producer and I apologized.”

We respect the Jets for taking this position, even though plenty of people have opined via Twitter and elsewhere that the move was justified.

Does anyone think that wasn't blatant pass interference (besides Revis)?

Not sure it was interference as Marshall was stumbling his way out of the play already, but the pull of the jersey certainly helped and was absolutely illegal contact. The perception is starting to get out there that he gets away with some stuff that other corners don't(which in all fairness is earned because of how good he is.... How many times did Greg Maddux get the extra half inch pitching), but knowing how conscious the NFL is of stuff like that it could certainly hurt his chances of getting away with those types of calls. The Jets PR guy telling Revis to hang up probably doesn't do much good in that regard though.

That was not Pass Interference Marshall was falling before Revis even touched him

Blame for this falls completely on the Jets. This all springs from the fact they can't stand Francesa. I am a Giant fan and an avid NY sports talk radio show listener and I am no fan of Mike what so ever but the fact remains that he was doing his job and everyone says he was badgering Darrelle. They had moved on to the topic of physicality of receivers and how the rule has changed over the years when it was Revis who brought the play back up. Now, Mike has been saying all week that he thought it was a penalty (to which I agree) and he has all the right to respond to that and say that he thought it was so. What bothers me is how basically the whole Jets organization is taking on the attitude and the mouth of Rex. They all run their mouths and flap at the gums like they're such hot shots. You've lost 2 AFC Championships in a row, you're 3-3 this year, your coach is still running his mouth like he's the greatest thing since sliced bread and you have the bravado of a team that has won 5 Super Bowls. Memo to Rex: Guaranteeing that you're going to win Super Bowl after Super Bowl after Super Bowl and then saying you would've won a couple of rings with SD if you were their coach doesn't mean you have 5 rings. It means that you're ****** at predicting things and you should keep your mouth shut and go about your business like the other 31 teams in the NFL and not have your PR guys hang up on interviews because someone is actually not catering to your team.

I don't think you realize you still can't touch him...
Marshall never fell, in part because of Revis holding him.
You can't grab his shoulder and pull it in ever so slightly.
Well beyond 5 yards.
There's no shame in admitting you got away with one. It's not your fault, it's the refs.

DI
10-21-2011, 04:51 PM
Exactly. Maybe Marshall was tripping and falling but that doesn't mean that gives Revis free reign to grab on the back of his jersey the way he did. He got away with one and the fact that he can look at the replay and say he doesn't think it's a penalty tells me that he's a victim of his own greatness.

Watched the video of the interview. The Francessca dude tries to play it off like he was joking after Revis hangs up, but that's not true at all. He just would not let the issue go. Just move on. No need to spend damn near 5 minutes on it. Especially when Revis has made it clear he is not going to give him whatever dumb response he was trying to get.
If this is any indication of his interview style he must be horrible.

It's Mike F. Was that the first time you heard him? If so, then let me tell you this guy is very popular and has had fights with players. He and mad dog once were talking about corey lidle and Cory called in and they got into it. People usually like or hate Fat Mike, but even the haters can tell you he is very popular throughout the tristate area.

The guy makes millions a year. He is the guy in the tristate area when it comes to sports.

He is VERY famous here in the tri state area. Growing up and living here, he is the MAN for ALL sports. He always gets national guys and coaches, and players to call in for all sports. He is very famous and very successful. If you love him or hate him, one can admit that he is very popular and successful.
He is basically the NY voice, and everyone knows he and the Jets management basically hate each other. Woody J and Mr. T, he calls the GM, have gone back and forth. They are very sensitive in regards to things said about the organization.

Mike may have made a mistake, but he really kisses DR butt. Calling him the best player, which DR is. He took his side in the contract hold out saga. He may have gone over the line but DR and the PR guy handled it wrong.

Let's put it this way... If SD kills the Jets, then everyone will tune into Mike F to hear him go off on that franchise. It will be easily be a must listen to show if that happens! Now the Yankees are out it's going to be all football.

He's really not a fan of anyone. He's a Yankee fan, thats about it. He's very close (or used to be) with Parcells. So he always used to give whatever team he was coaching at the time a little extra pub. You interview with him, you know what you are getting into, he'll ask the hard question and drive it home. It's not like doing an interview with Mike & Mike.

Edit: Just listened now. Revis went on the offensive right away about that play. I guess he's been listening to the radio too much this week.

I thought DR and the PR needed tougher skin. It's not like Tiki hung up on Mike when Mike was ripping him a new one. Tiki had his agent on the phone too, and it was funny when Mike was basically telling his agent to shut up and let Tiki answer the questions.

I saw an awful route run by a WR. An awful throw by a QB. And an easy INT for a CB who had blanket coverage. There was no penalty and there should not have been a penalty. People are exaggerating when they say he grabbed the jersey and act like he threw Marshall to the ground. Its called football. People seriously are forgetting how the game should be played if they think that ticky-tacky **** is a penalty.

Marshall was simply out of control. He tried to run through Revis when Revis had perfect position. He just lost his balance. Thats what happens when he gets in the red zone. Its why he doesn't score TDs.

As for the interview ... I don't care. This is a non story. This is how Francesa acts and he's one of the few that actually asks tough questions. This was a stupid question and Revis gave stupid answers.

As for the Jets ... Revis is the only reason to even watch them. Ryan is nothing but a clown. Now that he's losing, it's even more obvious to those that like(d) him. He needs to shut the **** up.

Exactly.
I'm excited that Revis' tactics are now starting to come to the forefront.
It reminds me of Woodson. He got away with this for a few dominant years, then started getting called for it more than any other DB in the league.

It forced him to change. As a result, he doesn't have blanket coverage all the time. I wish I had film of the game I remember 2-3 years ago vs Cinci where he practically impregnated Ochocinco he molested him so badly.

I saw it too. Francessca was being a jerk. I like how he pulled the "oh I was just playing" card. That's reminds me of a bully giving a kid a bloody nose and then saying "oh I was just playing with him" once he gets in trouble. He seemed obsessed with getting Revis to agree with his opinion. Revis should have said "Well I'm not sure what you want me to say, I have my opinion and you have yours, if you don't agree so be it." I really wish I was Revis just for that interview.

He was joking with him... Revis got mad. Mike F didn't even instigate the argument. He was just interviewing him about football.

And I don't even like Mike F that much. I lived in CT and Long Island for ~4 years. But that was just Darrelle Revis being an immature little turd. Revis should have just gone on there and said "Yeah, I might have gotten away with one there. It was a weird play because he was falling into me and the QB threw the ball right to me."

Mike definitely instigated the argument. He knew Revis wasn't going to admit that it was interference but he just kept bringing it up.

Mike actually got a taste of his own medicine. Whenever a caller calls up and Mike disagrees with him, he usually kicks him right off the line and insults him.

I do love his show though. He's just a dick sometimes.

Revis has a big game in less than 48 hours and is doing Mike a favor considering really No Jet is suppose to be on Mike's show.

Mike should have let it go rather than egg him on. The player ALWAYS gets the final say on those type of questions and you move on. Revis gave his honest take and Mike refused to listen, instead listening to what his ego tells him.

The defender has every right to the ball, sure. Revis has more right to the ball than Marshall at that point even...but he outright pulls jersey there and pretty hard too. You just can't do that. Not interference, but absolutely illegal contact. It would be different if it was just incidental stuff to try to get to the ball, but there was intent there too.

Mike did try to let it go, but Revis kept bringing it up and going on about it and saying stupid ****.

I don't like Mike in the slightest, but Revis created that situation.

Also, the first time I saw it, I said "meh, solid no call. Marshall was kind of just falling into him." But then I watched it a couple more times. Clear illegal contact/hold. I wouldn't call PI because Marshall didn't have any awareness of the ball and it was thrown in a spot he had no chance of catching it. I think Moore threw the ball expecting to draw a penalty (at least, I hope he did because that was fuckawful).

No he didn't because he hinted a few times he will move on by Mike but Mike kept on going and going after it. Mike's been doing this for years, he knows what he's doing and he wanted to cause a stir. He's done this to plenty of people, Revis is not the 1st.

Judging by this article, Mike planned this and wanted to create a stir for ratings since he was slipping a bit:

Not interference, but absolutely illegal contact. It would be different if it was just incidental stuff to try to get to the ball, but there was intent there too.

Meh, the former DB in me says that's a ticky tack call if it's made. It was a very slight tug, Marshall did an acting job. Put it this way, WRs tug like that past 5 yards all the time, and you'll never ever see them get called for offensive PI.

So I'm perfectly fine with it. Revis is smart, he touches "illegally" a lot past 5 yards but he's generally more subtle with it than this instance. He uses his hips to bump players a lot. Supposedly learned that from Bruce Bowen when they got rid of hand checking in the NBA. Bruce would use his hips to "handcheck" and Revis does the same in football.

Plus, it's taught by Rex. It's simple really, refs don't like throwing flags every play. So use that to your advantage. Push the limit and see how much you can do it before you get flagged for it. Watch the Jets play, all their DBs play past 5 yards. It's smart. Keep doing it until you get flagged for it. Why not?

Plus look at it this way, what would you rather have? A 5 yard penalty plus a 1st down, or a 20 yard completion? If I'm a DB and I see I'm about to get beat, I'll do illegal contact every time.

Yeah Pererira doesn't hold much weight to me.

Bottom line of it is this, initially Revis did nothing wrong defending his space, but then he grabbed, pulled and held the jersey, preventing any kind of recovery for Marshall to make a play on the ball.

He didn't care for them right off the bat because Carton is a huge tool. It's a totally different audience. Their show is about 25% sports.
They're both tools....Carton does it as a gimmick though and purposely acts like a clown, to mix with Boomer's more serious approach. Mike is just arrogant and has an inflated ego, which is why Russo just bailed on him since Mike wanted his own show and wanted a more serious sports show, which went against what Dog wanted.

Its a different audience sure(Oldies like Mike'd Up, the younger crowd likes Boomer and Carton) but Francesa has always bragged about being New York's top show and took good pleasure upon being that. He's the same guy who brags about killing his competition, taking shots on Dan Patrick and the 100 different shows they run against me when the news of Brandon Tierney was being let go by ESPN(When ESPN can never win due to ****** radio signal and of course employing Michael F'N Kaye...)

Yeah Pererira doesn't hold much weight to me.

Bottom line of it is this, initially Revis did nothing wrong defending his space, but then he grabbed, pulled and held the jersey, preventing any kind of recovery for Marshall to make a play on the ball.
Arguable. I agreed with this assessment at first but then I never noticed Marshall stumbling and Marshall trying to grab a hold of anything before Revis got to him.

Its really arguable and a toss up. I even was conflicted with the call myself so I can't get on anyone who thinks it was illegal contact(Not Pass INT. like that idiot Gruden was going on about) or not.

Yeah it really is a judgement call, I can see a ref not calling it or calling it.
I'd call it, but i am not going to say it was a TERRIBLE missed call.

That's the one thing I like about Mike. It's all about sports. He doesn't get into the dramatics of athletes' lives or other ********. It's just sports. He's a tool, but I wish more radio shows were more about the actual sports than stirring **** up like TMZ.
The funny thing is I watch his show because of the prank calls and because people often try and piss him off, causing a hilarious reaction as a response.

I go on a website that kind of mocks Francesa and its hilarious. The way he speaks, cuts callers off, gives "The Handwave"(Or now the "Button press")

I don't hate Mike's program, I try to watch it when I can. I just don't take anything he says seriously and enjoy when he gets mad at people who piss him off as his reactions are hysterical.(Phil Mushnick, prank callers, Russo/SIRIUS, anything Jets related etc.)

Well Phil Mushnick is the biggest D-bag of them all.

Oh yeah...the prank calls and watching Mike go on tilt are pretty much the reason to watch/listen to the show.

"Tom Coglin" :D
