NFL Media's Andrea Kremer reported that Revis met with Bucs coach Greg Schiano for about 15 minutes Tuesday "to clear (the) air." The star cornerback said he's simply frustrated over the Bucs' 0-2 start and has no issues with the coach or how he's been used in Tampa Bay's defense.
Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo reported Sunday that Revis is unhappy with Schiano's strict coaching style after coming from a more player-friendly atmosphere with Rex Ryan and the New York Jets. Per Garafolo, Revis also has been frustrated with the Bucs' lack of man-to-man coverage on defense.
Revis refuted the report Tuesday on Twitter.
What's going on Buc fans. Just to clear the smoke. I'm happy to be a Buccaneer & I'm happy to be a resident of Tampa.â Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) September 17, 2013
I'm excited for this year & I'm excited about this team as we move forward to prepare each week to get a W!!!â Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) September 17, 2013
Schiano needs a supporter in Revis. Without the franchise star by his side, all is lost.
