With the Jets playing the Giants Saturday, and both teams on the border of missing the playoffs, the New York media is in full hype-machine mode. They’re doing everything possible to stir up a controversy. Rex Ryan’s words were twisted earlier this week to make it seem like he was taking a shot at the Giants. Now it’s the words of Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks receiving attention.
When asked if Darrelle Revis was the best CB in football, Nicks responded by calling him a “decent corner.”
His explanation was expected — why should he subordinate himself?
Fellow receiver Victor Cruz was less inclined to praise the All-Pro defensive back.
