This week Jet hater Mike Francesa has hung up on by all pro Jet corner back Darrell Revis
The interview started innocently enough. Revis gave a quick recap of New York’s 24-6 win over the Dolphins, then Francesa began to push Revis on the play where the corner, as he made the crucial interception, appeared to pull at the jersey of Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall. That’s when things got heated — in a hurry.
“I can say whatever I want to say,” exclaimed Revis, who insisted it was a clean play. “Did the ref throw the flag?” No, Francesa replied, he didn’t. “Okay then!” said Revis. “I mean, this is the game, brother. What are you talking about?” Francesa and Revis went back and forth on the issue for nearly four minutes.
“You are still the only one in the world who doesn’t think that was a penalty,” said Francesa. “I don’t care!” said Revis, clearly annoyed. “I don’t care what everybody thinks! I don’t care what you think, I don’t care what the whole world thinks.” “You’re good at interviewing,” he added. “I’m good at what I do. Just leave it at that!”
Francessa wouldn't leave it at that and Revis and the Jets hung up on him. I say good shit. I'm glad they did as I am sick of Francessa bullying and antagonizing attitude toward goon fans/callers
I am the first to admit the 3-3 Jets have been playing poorly and I'm down for honest criticism, but in this interview Francessa over stepped his bounds. I can't listen to him talk about the Jets anymore because he has taken his hate for the team to a personal level.Unprofessional.
Instead of being hung up on a play that really no one cares or is stressing about/over, Francessa should be looking more closely at their upcoming opponent the 4-1 San Diego Chargers. At face value everyone sees a 4-1 team and automatically makes them some powerhouse. but be careful because in teams sports like football, softball, etc, records can be deceiving. The Charger schedule has been soft - wins over Minnesota, Miami, KC, and the Chargers are nothing to brag about.
This game is the litmus test for Jets, analyst should focus on asking questions like can they score? pressure Rivers? instead of getting hung up on the past.
