Rex Ryan can't stop bragging about his third-year cornerback Darrelle Revis, but why should he?

Two days ago after finishing in second place behind cornerback Charles Woodson for the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year award, Revis received 48 out of a possible 50 votes to earn him a spot on the NFL's All-Pro team for the first time in his career.

The only other players to receive more votes than Revis were Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson (50) and 49ers linebacker Partrick Willis (49). Woodson also received 48 votes as did the Oakland Raiders punter Shane Lechler.

The New York Giants failed to get a player named to the All-Pro team after finishing the season 8-8 even with a 5-0 start. They were amongst 14 other teams in which a player was not chosen.

Ryan, who was upset that Revis got beaten by Woodson, had this to say to reporters.

"A number that I think is interesting would be eight, and no, that's not the amount of touchdown passes that Green Bay gave up against Arizona . That is the number of touchdown passes we gave up all season at the Jets, and the biggest reason for that is Darrelle Revis."
This was said after Woodson's Packers gave up 51 points in Sundays overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Darrelle Revis was the Jets first round pick in 2007 drafted out of Pittsburgh. Revis finished the 2009 regular season with a career-high six interceptions and was notorious for shutting down some of the best wide receivers in football.
As the Jets head into the post-season I only have three things to say...
