Revis Island Takes Over Mike Francesa’s Show

Add Mike Francesa to the list of people shut down by Darrelle Revis


It was somewhat head turning today when we heard that Darrelle Revis would be making an appearance on Mike Francesa’s show, especially considering Francesa’s incessant bashing of the New York Jets and Rex Ryan. When it comes to the New York Jets, there is no other way to put it except that Francesa is a complete asshole and revels in it to get a rise out of Jets fans.

In his interview, he began pressing Revis that on his interception return for 100 yards he should have been called for defensive pass interference for pushing off on Brandon Marshall. Revis stood up for himself and said the play was legal, the pass was behind him and that he made the play. Francesa continued to push him saying he knew it was penalty and that everybody knew it was penalty. Revis said he didn’t care what Francesa thought and that Francesa never played a down, so he wouldn’t know better than him and he would continue to believe what he believed as a pro football player. The discussion got more contentious until a Jets PR rep got on the phone and said Revis should get off the line.

Revis then said “that is why nobody talks to this guy. You have never played the game” and hung upon Francesa. After that, Francesa went on to confirm that he in fact does know more about football than Darrelle Revis and Giants fans flooded the line supporting this line of thinking. Because of course Mike Francesa does know more about football, than Darrelle Revis the best corner in football, right?

Add Francesa to the list of people shut down on Revis Island.
