Jason Hill Says Darrelle Revis Is Overhyped
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Jason Hill says that one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL is overhyped. You’re losing credibility if you believe Darrelle Revis is overhyped.
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is regarded by many, nearly everybody, as the best player at his position in the NFL. He is great in run support. He made a game-changing interception against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football last week and has 15 interceptions in his career. He has consistently shut down the top receivers in football. This didn’t stop Jason Hill from not making sense though.
“This is a league full of great players. I think sometimes they get overhyped,” Hill told the Florida Times-Union. “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.”
Jason Hill continued not making sense. “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.”
It’s horrid logic to suggest that Darrelle Revis is overhyped because he’s on TV. The NFL is filled with players who aren’t consistently on primetime television. Nnamdi Asumugha is regarded as one of the best cornerbacks in the league. He played for the Oakland Raiders for the last eight seasons. He was hardly ever on primetime TV, yet he’s regarded as one of the best cornerbacks in the game.
Regardless of who you play for, if you’re one of the best players in the game, we’re aware of it. Come up with a better theory, Jason Hill.
