Ray Lewis: Jets have ‘no excuses’ with Revis
This way, the Baltimore linebacker says, the Ravens won’t have to hear any nonsense if they beat them Monday night.
“I’m just glad he is signed, so there are no excuses,” Lewis said in a conference call with New York media Thursday. “Don’t come and say, ‘Oh, we didn’t have Revis.’ Have everybody you need to have. … Stack your deck and let’s play football.”
Revis signed a four-year deal Monday, ending his 36-day holdout and rejoining his Jets teammates. He will be on the field against the Ravens when the Jets play their first regular-season game at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
Ryan coached Lewis for several years as an assistant with the Ravens, and they won a Super Bowl together in 2001. Ryan jokingly said Tuesday that maybe he’d spell Revis to give Baltimore “hope that he’s not out there.”
“The only hope I’m looking for is in God,” Lewis said. “That’s it. I don’t look for any hope (elsewhere). Darrelle Revis puts his pants on one leg at a time. He’s not a machine. He’s a simple man, and he has to deal with everything that we’re willing to bring to the table.”
“Hopefully, his 36-day layoff didn’t hurt him,” Lewis said. “When you talk about giving us hope, we don’t need hope. You all bring your own hope. We have enough hope over here. We’re packing our bags. We’re not packing our bags to play water polo. We’re packing our bags to come play football.”
“Ray was the most inspirational player that I’ve ever had the honor of coaching,” Ryan said. “Guy’s an amazing guy. He’s all-in. It’s team, and his team only, and that’s all he cares about. That’s the way it should be. He’s going to be going up against a team this week that, trust me, we don’t care about them, either. It’s going to be a no-holds-barred match.”
“The only danger it can be is writing a check that you can’t cash,” Lewis said. “Rex can talk all he wants to. Rex isn’t putting on pads, so that’s pressure on his players. If it’s pressure and his players respond to that, then let them respond.”
