Jaguars receiver Jason Hill had some big words this past week for Darrelle Revis, calling him and the Jets overhyped because they play in the one of the media capitals of the world. In my opinion, the headline was worse than the content of the story, but still, it was newsworthy because a journeyman was calling out one of the league’s stars in the week leading up to their teams ‘matchup.
Luckily for Hill, he won’t have to worry about backing up his words. Because he’s, um, inactive with a hip injury.
Did you catch that? After spewing his opinion, Hill is INACTIVE!!!
So, that’s kind of crappy for his teammates who will have to deal with an (I’m assuming) extra pumped-up Revis.
As a reminder, here’s what Hill said: "This is a league full of great players. 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."
When told about that comment, Revis basically said: “Who in the hell is that? Jason who?”
Unfortunately for Revis, he won’t get to meet him on the field today.
