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.”
