Jets' Darrelle Revis Stands By His Comments About Bill Belichick

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis stands by his statements when he called New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick a jerk during a word-associate game on ESPN. 

"They told me to sum him up in one word and I gave my honest opinion," Revis explained today. "I feel that people let him slide when he says smart remarks on certain things."

"When you say certain comments about the Jets, some things are disrespectful. It's OK to have a rivalry, it's OK to compete. But when it gets personal, then it gets disrespectful.

"I didn't start this battle," Revis continued. "It's just the smart comments he says. It's ignorant. It's ignorant (toward) this organization."
