Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall believes that New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis gets special treatment from the officials.
“My technique could’ve been better, but at the same time, I think they gave him `the Jordan Rule,”’ Marshall said. “You get a little close to Michael Jordan, they’re going to call a foul.”
Marshall said that some officials are “scared to throw the flag” and believes that “nine times out of 10” a flag would’ve been thrown if it wasn’t Revis. He was referring to Revis’ 100 yard pick six that he recorded when the Dolphins and the Jets met for the first time this season.
It does seem like Revis has gotten away with quite a few holding penalties that weren’t called this season. But then again that’s most corners in the NFL.
