WAYNE, N.J. -- The key to turning around the Jets' season is simple, Darrelle Revis said.

"Guys just need to shut up," the cornerback said with a laugh during an appearance for the release of his first signature training shoe -- the Nike Revis Zoome 1 -- at Willowbrook Mall Saturday morning.

Hundreds of fans lined up outside the first-floor Champs store to get a glimpse of Revis, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 3.

Revis fielded questions about his journey to NFL stardom, his new sneaker, his recovery from ACL surgery and, of course, the state of his 4-7 team.

The Jets are 2-6 since Revis' injury and are dangerously close to missing the playoffs for the second straight season.
