DATELINE: No Man is a Felon
Darrelle Revis, the Jet who found the Patriots Way untenable to his taste and returned to the Way of the Loser, may be on the verge of the biggest Patriot loser since Aaron Hernandez.
These behavioral patterns may not be psychopathic, as in the case of the tight end now on trial for a double murder, but Revis is showing distinct attitudes that could lead to another Murder One Patriot.
This week in Pittsburgh, where Revis lives inexplicably in the off-season, he was engaged in some kind of street violence for an alleged offense against his manhood. At least that’s the story his lawyer is sticking by for now.
Revis has not surrendered to police, apparently hoping to be chased while he hides in the back seat of a white Bronco.
Revis leveled a couple of fan boys or gang members, depending on your perspective. He is now facing four counts of felony. According to police, there is smart phone video footage of the encounter. Revis is not photogenic.
Apparently the Jet failure has proved yet again that no man is a Revis Island by washing ashore like a Ninja from Singapore.
When you offend the masculine pride of an NFL star, whether past or present, you could face violent consequences. In the case of Hernandez, he waited with loaded gun to shoot a car filled with objects of his indignation.
Revis used fists. We suspect a gun might have resulted in a couple of homicides.
To the Patriots’ credit, they made no effort to sign him for a second season after he helped the Super Bowl winning team a few years back.
This season in New York, he looked like a satire of his earlier self, having lost more skills or will to win than your usual Jet flops.
His lawyer said he will turn himself in sooner or later.
