07:53 AM ET 08.12 | While sparring in the local papers is always an option, "Hard Knocks" does offer a national forum for the Jets to paint the Darrelle Revis story how they choose. GM Mike Tannenbaum painted a bleak picture while being filmed on his ride back from the Roscoe Diner in Roscoe, N.Y., after a three-hour meeting with Revis' agents last Friday. "They haven't said one thing that I agree with," Tannenbaum said. ... "I just wish I had another card to play here," Tannenbaum added. "A one-year deal. A four-year deal. A 10-year deal. In good conscience, we can move on. Maybe we'll go trade for a corner." ... Tannenbaum knew he was being filmed, so this could be a case of posturing to force Revis' hand. Or he could be dead serious.

Either way... the article is dead on. J-E-T-S have the upper hand in the "portrayal" department.

But - the player has the upper hand in the empty locker space department.

BTW - great TV last night! Beat the hell out of the Cowboys shows...

Great, now the Revis drama can play out on "Hard Knocks", Brilliant! Thank you HBO for giving a team with a big ego an even broader forum to show that off.

What's with the Hard Knocks threads? Does SI own a piece of this? Are they using the forum to hype TV shows, instead of giving us another Favre thread?

Why not put Giselle on Hard Knocks so we can at least see a picture of her instead of Fat Rex? I suppose for that episode they could rename it "Soft Knockers."

Rex...you are embarrassing. Hasn't Jenny Craig come calling yet?

She did and he ate her.

How can they afford to sign Revis when they have to feed Rex? A conundrum for sure.

August 12, 2010  08:19 AM ET

That's a serious baby bump Rex has working there. Niiiiice!

I agree FJM, isn't it great.

(Oh wait, were you being sarcastic?)

I wonder how far along he is.

the jets are poised to come unraveled and 90% of it is due to Rex being devoid of filteres. Maybe he's fat because he realizes that when his mouth is open and he's not shoving food in it, bad things come out of it?

You sure don't want to be down wind of Rex after he's eaten. Good luck to the staff of Hard Knocks!

She did, and now she's in Witness Protection.

Yup, when he runs out of food, he might turn to eating people, so watch your fingers everyone!

Best estimate is that puppy should be busting through about the time his season is over...early Jan.

I get it, but reading this article made my brain hurt.

Well Rex is a lot more fun than the Michelin man

But if it came down to Rex coaching the team, and the Michelin Man coaching them, would anyone really notice the difference?
