Manhattan renamed Revis Island - [Full Article]

Manhattan is now Revis Island -- at least for a few days.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg unofficially renamed Manhattan after Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis during a rush-hour pep rally for the team on Thursday in Times Square.

The Jets face the heavily favored Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in the AFC championship game in Indiana for a trip to the Super Bowl.

Thousands of Jets fans roared their approval when Bloomberg unveiled a large municipal-style sign printed "Welcome to Revis Island" with the team's logo in one corner. Revis regular guards the opponents' best receiver one-on-one, and the Jets call being put on Revis Island.

The sign will be posted in Times Square as long as the Jets are in the playoffs.
