"</font></font>Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4155/darrelle-revis) may cause problems (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/05/31/darrelle-revis-doesnt-know-if-hell-hold-out-from-training-camp/) for the team by taking a
stand over his two-year-old deal. Revis realizes that he may not be the only
source of possible consternation in 2012. The presence of Mark Sanchez (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5192/mark-sanchez) and Tim Tebow (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5096/tim-tebow) on the roster may create issues,
too.


“It could cause a problem (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/darrelle-revis-voice-support-mark-sanchez-tim-tebow-jets-qb-mix-article-1.1087973#ixzz1weyW0EaT),” Revis recently
told Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. “We’re not going to sit
here and say it can’t. I think our focus is just being positive about the
situation and making sure these guys actually get along, which they do, and work
together. That’s the only thing you can do. We win games, everybody is getting
a pat on the back. We lose games, that’s where it might cause controversy. All
in all, we’re just excited.”</p>


If it becomes a problem, Revis should place some of the blame on himself, for
sending mixed signals to the locker room. Last month, Revis raved about Tim
Tebow’s leadership abilities.</p>


“He’s a born leader, he really is (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/05/16/revis-raves-about-tebow/),” Revis
said. “Very few athletes have the gift he has. He tries to lead by example all
the time. He tries to be positive, which is awesome, and that [has resulted] in
his success on the field. . . . Some people have it, some guys don’t. It’s the
passion within, wanting to be a leader, wanting to win. You see it all the time,
eating lunch, walking down the hallway. You see it.”</p>


As Revis sees it, however, Sanchez should keep his job.</p>


“That’s what we know as a team,” Revis said. “Mark is the leader of the
offense and the starting quarterback. . . . He’s improved a lot and he’s going
to keep on improving. Mark works very hard. This guy is here all the time.
Usually here with me. He does what he does. Don’t write him off.”</p>


It’s not a direct conflict in the cornerback’s comments, but it definitely
creates an atmosphere of uncertainty that could quickly become a firestorm
if/when Sanchez struggles to start the regular season.</p>


Even though there may not be a “problem” just yet, Revis admits a quarterback
controversy indeed exists, despite the team’s repeated proclamations that
Sanchez is the starter.</p>


“It already started,” Revis said. “This is something we are going to have to
deal with probably for a couple of years. We’ll see how it pans out.”</p>


Perhaps realizing the potential impact of his words, Revis eventually tried
to joke his way out of the minefield, claiming that neither guy should be
starting.</p>


“I’m the best quarterback,” Revis declared. “I’ve been talking to coach
[Tony] Sparano and he’s talking about giving me a couple of plays. He’s going
to let me throw a couple of balls. I’m the best quarterback on this team.”</p>


The sad part is that some may actually agree with Revis."</p>

It's always interesting to me when players create negative press when there's no need to even say good morning.

You know the Jets haven't gotten it together when a contract problem talks about a QB problem.
