There are not a whole lot of wide receivers who would actually look forward to playing against Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. By now, though, we should know that New England’s Randy Moss is not like most wide receivers.
Moss has extra motivation for Sunday since Revis referred to him as a “slouch” during the offseason.
“Words don’t really hurt me. I guess he’s entitled to say what he wants to say,” Moss said. "Then again, we’re coming to the Meadowlands on Sunday, man, so you got 60 minutes of this ‘slouch.’ I don’t really get into the trash talking, but if what he called me was a ‘slouch,’ then I guess the ‘slouch’ will be there to see you on Sunday.
“There was a lot of talk last year — and I’m not taking anything from him, he did some good things to be the shutdown corner that he is — I’m not here to say that I prided my offseason on Revis,” Moss said. “But like I said, I take pride in what I do. What he did last year, was something that, he opened my eyes up as a wide receiver. That there’s a cornerback out here where I have to be on my A-game. I prided my offseason on staying off Revis Island.”
A motivated Moss is still as good as any receiver in the game. Just another reason why Jets-Patriots is must-see TV on Sunday.
