Revis calls for more leadership, consistency

When the Jets went on the road and defeated the Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs, it was an inspired and emotional win. After the final whistle blew, Braylon Edwards did his back flip. Bart Scott shouted “CAN’T WAIT!” to a sideline reporter. And other players floated off the field with arms spread wide, mimicking an airplane in flight.

But then the crash came a week later against the Steelers, when they appeared emotionally spent. The Jets were down 24-0 before the first half ended.

Could the Jets not maintain that level of consistency that led them to a road wins over the Colts and Patriots?

“You can say that,” Darrelle Revis told NFL Network. “On people’s body language, you could kind of see guys just relax. Guys were just relaxed and didn’t really know what was at stake. I think that’s why we came out so flat. And we didn’t finish strong.”

Revis called for “more leadership and more consistency” for the Jets to get over the hump that is the AFC Championship Game.
