Game of Thrones Author Blasts Jets for Darrelle Revis Trade

by at . Comments

Turns out, George R.R. Martin knows about more than dragons and dire wolves, White Walkers and three-eyes ravens.

The Game of Thrones author also knows that it's never a good idea to trade one of the top players in the National Football League for a couple of draft picks.

But that's exactly what the New York Jets did with stud cornerback Darrelle Revis this week, prompting an epic diatribe from George R.R. Martin.

"They have hardly done anything right since Joe Willie Namath won SuperBowl III, and every time you think maybe they are finally turning the corner, they find some new way to screw things up," Martin blogs.

He goes on to congratulate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for drinking New York's "milkshake" and adds:

The best theory about this trade is that the Jets want the #1 pick overall in the 2014 draft. Cause this next season is going to be bloody painful. After which our new whizz-bang "let's give away our best player for a bag of old jockstraps" GM is going to fire Rex Ryan because, after all, that 2 - 14 record is clearly Rex's fault.

The year after that is likely to be even worse, even with that swell fourth-round-maybe-it-becomes-a-third we'll be getting from Tampa Bay. That is, assuming Kal-El Son of Jor-El isn't coming out in next year's draft. And even if he was, the Jets wouldn't take him. All that green would remind him too much of kryptonite.

Martin, who is still writing the beloved series on which this HBO smash is based, concludes his rant with a word all Jets fans know well;

Sigh.

It sounds like winter will be coming to all Jets fans this fall... and not leaving any time soon.
