This whole tit-for-tat took on a new form this week, with Moss saying that "I prided my whole offseason on staying off of Revis Island" and that Revis will "get 60 minutes of this slouch."

"He probably said it with a laugh, but it’s been in his mind the whole offseason, and he’s been working hard for this day to come," Revis responded. "Like I said, I’m expecting him to play his A-plus game, I don’t expect anything less when I’m playing Randy. ...

"I know he’s coming prepared. Randy Moss is a hard-worker and he wants to be the best. He has to do what he has to do to be the best, and that’s working out in the offseason and doing what you need to do to tie up your technique and things like that. ...

"If that’s what he said, then maybe that’s what he’s been worrying about all offseason – staying off Revis Island. But like I said, I’m sure he’s gonna come well-prepare on Sunday and I’m sure he’s gonna have some tricks up his sleeve."

Overall? Pretty tame, diplomatic stuff from Revis, mirroring the tame, diplomatic stuff coming from the Jets in general.

Perhaps it's the situation they're in -- 0-1 and needing a win badly. Whatever it is, it's a little different here this week.
