Revis defends Ryan's Super Bowl guarantee
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has no problem with head coach Rex Ryan declaring them the next Super Bowl champs -- again.
Revis stopped by the "First Take" set at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla., and was asked about the title guarantee Ryan made last week at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
"It's always motivational," Revis said. "Rex, man, if you really know him, he's a very passionate guy and a player's coach. We like the energy. We like what he talks about.
"What he said, winning the Super Bowl, that's why we play this game. You play this game to get a ring. If you're not playing for that, then you shouldn't be in the NFL."
Revis talked about lobbying the Jets to acquire receiver Chad Ochocinco and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
"You're always trying to better your team and trying to get over that hump," Revis said. "We lost the last two AFC championship games. We need to get over that hump."
Revis also discussed Bart Scott's foray into professional wrestling, Hines Ward on "Dancing With the Stars" and the NFL's toughest three receivers to cover.
