Jets head coach Rex Ryan has become famous for predicting that his team will win the Super Bowl each year. However, Darrelle Revis said he thinks all this talk needs to be backed up. “If he says ‘Super Bowl,’ that’s cool,” Revis said. “That’s why we play this game, but if we’re not winning games then we need to figure out how to win games instead of just talking and saying whatever you want to say.”

Darrelle Revis left nothing to interpretation.

“I’m playing Sunday,” he said repeatedly, smiling each time.

The Jets cornerback said he passed the final test in a long series of hurdles en route to getting back on the field.

“Doctors cleared me, so I’ll be playing Sunday,” he said.

For the first time since he suffered a concussion in Week 1, Revis was cleared for contact prior to Thursday’s practice.

He participated fully, as expected.

The All Pro corner said he felt healthy enough to practice full-contact on Wednesday, “but there’s still protocol we had to follow,” he said, adding that he refused to wear the red non-contact pinnie this week.
