FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - On Wednesday, Darren Woodson delivered a shot at Darrelle Revis. But the Jets cornerback and his teammates weren't the least bit fazed by it.

"I just think his time as being the elite No. 1 cornerback is pretty much over," Woodson, a three-time Super Bowl champion with the Cowboys and current ESPN analyst, said Wednesday on the "Mike & Mike" show.

"He's a 30-year-old corner now. Let's just call it what it is. Just watching him this past week against [Raiders rookie] Amari Cooper . . . That matchup, if they really wanted to go at Darrelle Revis the entire game, Amari Cooper would have had at least 150 yards. He would have had a huge game against Darrelle Revis."

The Raiders won the game, 34-20. But despite a poor performance by the Jets' defense, which included at least 20 missed tackles, Cooper was held to his lowest production of the season: five catches on nine targets for 46 yards.

Told of Woodson's comments, cornerback Antonio Cromartie said: "He doesn't play anymore, so who cares?"

What was Revis' reaction?

"He's a comedian. Definitely," Revis told the Daily News. "I think it's funny."

Woodson may no longer see Revis Island as a terrifying destination for NFL receivers, but the Jets still view Revis as a shutdown corner. "He's lived up to everything -- and then some," defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers said.

Asked for his thoughts on Woodson's remarks, coach Todd Bowles said matter-of-factly: "I don't think anything about it. Analysts talk. I think [Revis is] good for us."
