‘Nobody likes’ playing for Patriots

Darrelle Revis won his only Super Bowl in New England, but that doesn’t mean he enjoyed his time there.

The former Jets and Patriots cornerback spent the 2014 season with New England. Revis enjoyed a 14-2 season, hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and earned a Pro Bowl nod. Yet he recently told the “I Am Athlete” podcast that he didn’t like playing for Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

“No,” Revis said. “I did not.

“When you deal with the things up there, it’s a little bit strenuous. And nobody likes it in the locker room. That’s to be honest — nobody. Nobody likes it.”

Revis went on to say that he preferred his time with Rex Ryan and the Jets. Revis had two stints with Gang Green from 2007-2012 and from 2015-2016. Ryan coached the Jets from 2009-2014.

“It’s just two different coaching philosophies. You know, Rex is a little bit more loose. You know, he likes dogs. He wants you to go out there and play hard, run into a wall,” Revis said. “You know, I’m happy for the grind and the hustle of winning Super Bowl 49, but you know, waking up every day and walking into the facility and having to deal with the tension. You know, you see why they’ve been in 10 Super Bowls, you see the hustle and the grind of it. But at the end of the day, there’s other philosophies to win. And it doesn’t have to be that way. I mean you got 32 teams with 32 coaches. Some are intense, some look at things another way, and there’s different philosophies to win the game.”

It’s an interesting comparison from a player who saw both sides of the rivalry up close, but outside of 2009 and 2010 — the AFC Championship Game appearance years — the Jets didn’t do much winning with Revis around.
