Ryan on Revis’ decision Dan Leberfeld
Rex Ryan has been criiticized by some in the media for allowing Darrelle Revis (hamstring) to play againt Minnesota and Denver.
“I leaned on our medical staff and really, I think Darrelle is about 90%,” Ryan said after the Denver game. “He’s not 100% yet, he’s about 90%. But that is better than 90% of the corners in this league. And did he get beat for a touchdown? Yeah, he did. But you know what? He’s going to get beat again for a touchdown this season, no matter if his 90% or 100% or whatever. That’s just the way it is. He’s a great player. They all get beat. (Broncos CB) Champ Bailey – I’ll tell you what – he’s a heck of a corner. He got beat for a touchdown.
“I thought Darrelle played well (against Denver). 90% of Derrelle Revis is still pretty impressive. I know everyone criticized me but I don’t care, because I have broad shoulders. I’ll take the criticism. We’re in the win business. I never felt, after talking to the medical people, that he could further the injury.”
