If you’re a wide receiver whose team is set to face off against the most dominant cornerback in the league, you have a choice: you can choose to talk trash and possibly (probably) motivate that cornerback to have a great game, or you can choose to remain silent and hope that you can slip under the radar enough where said cornerback isn’t looking to make it personal.

Most receivers, when they go against Darrelle Revis, choose to stay quiet. Even Chad Ochocinco, a notorious trash-talker in the week leading up to the game, would clam up when the subject of Revis arose.

Jaguars receiver Jason Hill obviously has other ideas.

"This is a league full of great players," Hill told the Florida Times Union. "I think sometimes they get overhyped. I talked to Drew [Coleman], Drew played there. He says it's just the aura of New York. They got a big media. That's not the Jacksonville paper, that's the big New York Times paper so they get more pub. That's what it is.

"It's a game that we all play. He been playing the game, Revis, just as long as I've been playing. This is a game full of good players making plays. He just made a lot more plays on TV than we've made being here in Jacksonville. He's a good player. We respect him. Hopefully he respects us because we're going to bring it just like they're going to bring it."

Well, that’s interesting, but he’s probably right. Revis would be horsecrap if he played anywhere else other than New York*. Anything else to add?

*That was sarcasm. Obviously.

"Him personally, he's a good player, Pro Bowl player, I'm trying to make it to the Pro Bowl, too,” Hill said. “This'll be a good game to put some notches on our belts too. It's the New York Times vs. the Jacksonville paper. New York Times they got a lot more viewers than you got.”

Quite honestly, I’m not sure who should be more offended: Revis or the Florida Times Union.

One last thing: you might be wondering about Jason Hill. Like, who in the hell he is. Well, he’s a fifth-year receiver who played with the 49ers from 2007-10. He’s got 55 career catches and five touchdowns. And, because of a hip injury, he hasn’t practiced this week and probably won’t play.
 
Which, when you think about it, is just perfect.

Poor, uncontained journalism, but I appreciated hearing this as a Jets fan. Really speaks volumes about the fear around the league for Revis. Maybe Jason will get some respect from Revis when he burns him
