Revis Discusses Schiano and Disses Sherman

The 'second-best' cornerback in the league -- at least according to Richard Sherman -- had a few things to say recently, not only about Sherman but also about his former head coach, Greg Schiano.

Darrelle Revis said that Schiano himself brought unnecessary anxiety to Tampa Bay. 

"The atmosphere, I felt like, was real tense," Revis said to the Tampa Bay Times. "Guys didn't like coming to work. That's one of the things you have to have, a stress-free atmosphere and environment. You're going to get everything out of everybody if it's stress-free and let people be who they are.

"I just didn't feel he did a very good job of that. It was a learning experience for him, as well, and hopefully, if he ever gets another stab at it, he'll do things differently."

Revis also said that Schiano not listening to the players combined with his inexperience as an NFL head coach were other reasons he failed.

As for Sherman, Revis didn't take too kindly to the Seahawk corner declaring himself as the best cornerback when just a few years ago, before his injury, he was the best in the game.

"I feel like I'm the best," Revis said. "Deion Sanders probably feels like he's the best. Everybody has their own personal opinion. And that is how you go with it, and I think that is what makes it fun."

As for Sherman's behavior on Sunday, Revis wasn't a fan of that, either.

"Don't get me wrong; he's an entertainer, but he shouldn't have said that."  

The reporter asked him a question about the team, and he went on to answer about me, me, me, me. So that's how I took it. He didn't answer the question in the right way."

Revis is not alone on his feelings about either topic, but maybe he can regain his status as 'best cornerback in the NFL' next year, since he'll have a coach who knows what he's doing in Lovie Smith.
