Jets CB Darrelle Revis was asked why he’s struggling to play at the high level many have been accustomed to over the years, to which he replied: “Because I’m old.”
“You have bumps in the road,” Revis said, via Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. “Are you going to see a one catch for one yard game [like Reggie Wayne had in a 2010 playoff game]? Probably not. I was 23, 24 years old then. That’s just not where it’s at. Can I execute better and do things better? That’s going to come. That’s definitely going to come down the road. … I have to adjust my game in a lot of ways. I’m not going to get down on myself. I’m a very confident person. I’m going to keep on working like I usually do. It comes from where I grew up. We’re tough. We put the hard hat on and go back to work and find out what the problems is and try to solve it.”
