Jason Hill, Darrelle Revis Spar After Former Washington State Receiver

Jason Hill kicked the hornets nest and the New York Jets responded. Hill, a star for the Washington State Cougars, fired off shots at Darrelle Revis and the Jets, calling New York overhyped and indirectly prodding Revis. It takes some reading between the lines, but Revis took Hill's comments as an insult, and fired back on Friday.

After the jump, Hill's comments. Judge for yourself whether they're a shot at Revis' skills.

"I think the whole New York is overhyped," Hill said. "Him personally, he's a good player, Pro Bowl player, I'm trying to make it to the Pro Bowl, too. This'll be a good game to put some notches on our belts, too. It's the New York Times versus the Jacksonville paper. New York Times, they got a lot more viewers than you got."

"This is a league full of great players. I think sometimes they get overhyped," Hill said. "I talked to Drew, Drew played there. He says it's just the aura of New York. They got a big media. That's not the Jacksonville paper, that's the big New York Times paper so they get more pub. That's what it is.

"It's a game that we all play. He been playing the game, Revis, just as long as I've been playing. This is a game full of good players making plays. He just made a lot more plays on TV than we've made being here in Jacksonville. He's a good player. We respect him. Hopefully he respects us because we're going to bring it just like they're going to bring it."

Naturally, the Jets responded with "Who the hell is Jason Hill?" and "Revis won't see him on Sunday. He's not good enough to be covered by Revis."

But are Hill's comments that big of an issue? He doesn't say Revis isn't terrible -- he calls the Jets' cornerback a good player -- but the comments serve as bulletin board material. Gotta have something to get fired up about in the NFL. Have to play with a chip on your shoulder.

By the way, Hill probably won't play on Sunday after suffering a hip injury. So yes, that does add to the ridiculousness of the whole situation.
