Revis: Bucs “Have To” AdjustSeptember 15th, 2013
Dapper Darrelle Revis spent quite a few minutes talking to Joe and the Bucs pen and mic club after the gut-wrenching Bucs loss to the Saints.
Revis was asked about the personal foul penalties on Adrian Clayborn, on Dashon Goldson, on Mark Barron for excessive hits. While Revis said the Bucs want to be a hard-hitting team, they have to play by the NFL rules.
“How the rules are today, we have to [adjust],” Revis said. “We are still going to play aggressive football. Maybe you can lower the hit? Or do something where we don’t get the penalties which have been a big problem for us.”
On the helmet-to-helmet flag on Clayborn during his sack of Brees early in the game, Revis was uncomfortable with that.
“To me [the call] looked questionable,” Revis said. “But I don’t know what the refs were looking at. I really don’t know what they are studying.
“The game is fast. guys are just playing. They are literally not trying to headhunt. We are playing hard, aggressive fast football.”
