This time, he didn't call him a slouch in a word association game.

But nevertheless, Darrelle Revis may have added a little more fuel to a potential matchup with Randy Moss when the Jets meet the Vikings at New Meadowlands Stadium Monday night.

Revis, who we've detailed looks like he'll play this week although it's not completely etched in stone, said he noticed a little something when he was forced to sit out and watch the final 30 minutes of the Jets' 28-14 win over New England because he left hamstring tightened up.   

"I watched in the locker room and the second half, you could tell he was kind of putting his foot on the brake," Revis said after practice. "But everybody knows that’s Randy. Sometimes he comes out to play 100 percent, sometimes he don’t."

In what way did it look like Moss slammed on the brakes?

"You guys can tell, you can see the effort," Revis said. "Playing football, you can see the body language and the effort of people when they are out there playing. That’s just the way football is. You can see it. The truth comes out. You could see it that game a little bit. I don’t know if it was frustration of him not getting the ball a lot.

"But you can see it on him."  

As for the trade overall, it left Revis a bit stunned. 

"I was surprised when he got traded," Revis said. "I was surprised New England would do something like that because he was a big part of their offense. I don’t think they’re going to have a vertical game now. They’re probably going to be short- to intermediate. But this is what happens in the NFL, guys getting traded and moving on.

"When we face them in the future, we’ll see what’s the deal with those guys."
