Jets Fans Respond to the Darrelle Revis Trade

It's always about the money. If teams say it isn't, it always is. In the case of Darrelle Revis, it was completely about the money. 

There's no way the Jets were going to pay Revis quarterback-like money. As it was, he was already the highest paid cornerback in the NFL at $11.5 million per year. Revis was demanding $16 million, and that's exactly what he got from the Bucs. The only rub, none of it is guaranteed.

At the end of the day, the big loser in this deal has to be Jets head coach (for now), Rex Ryan. Revis made Ryan's defense extremely flexible. But without "Revis Island," the secondary becomes very pedestrian and the blitzing scheme becomes less effective.

We took to the streets of NYC to ask New Yorkers about the trade and whether the Jets coach was indeed set up to fail.
