Darelle Revis' New Nickname

I know everybody is crushed right now by our devastating and most likely season ending loss to the Giants yesterday. I'm right there with you guys - between bartending and working for the Saints, not to mention living in NO, I very rarely get to watch any Jets games, much less a crosstown match with our "big brother" to take control of NYC and our playoff destiny. This is my first Christmas as a married man, and my first comment to my beautiful new wife when the clock hit zero was "that's it, Christmas is cancelled this year!" I was joking, of course, but felt sick enough to my stomach to go take a three hour nap immediately afterwards - I, quite literally, couldn't face the light of day at that point! Hell, maybe it will be good in the long run, acting as a wake-up call to RR and the FO to finally make some moves - like firing Schotty and bringing back Bray. Anyone who's read my posts knows I was on the Braylon bandwagon since day 1 and felt we should have targeted him before Holmes or Asomugha. But that's all besides the point. I want to discuss one of the few positives I could think of after that Christmas Eve debacle.

We're all familar with the verbal sparring that went on between the Jets and Giants players (and of course Rex) in the preceding week. What I found particularly entertaining was the entire Giants WR core repeatedly calling out Darelle Revis, calling him a "decent" cornerback, and well, you guys know the rest. Revis is and always has been a class act and refused to get sucked in - well, ok, aside from saying he didn't really know who those guys were, but in all fairness, before this season, nobody knew who Victor Cruz was! His teammates did plenty of jawing on his behalf, pointing out the far more talented receivers in the past who have called out Mr. Revis - Moss, Ochocinco, Johnson, etc. - and just how eventful their trips to the Island were, but Darelle had only one thing to say :

I mean, I'm not a monster, so why would anyone be scared?
Even before the game, I was telling my wife, that's it, that's perfect! For, Mr. Revis, whether you want to believe it or not, you, sir, are a monster. So many guys on the Jets have cool nicknames - the War Machine, the Hitman, Mayhem - so why not the best player on the team? We all love Revis Island, but shouldn't there be a monster there waiting to destroy those who don't have faith in the mystical powers of the island - you know, kind of like Lost. I say yes, that we now officially dub the greatest CB in all the land Darelle "the Monster" Revis. I also thought maybe the Bogeyman might work, since I'm sure he's given many WRs recurring nightmares which will take years of therapy to resolve! Anyway, let me know what you guys think below...
