Posted 19 Aug 2014What is the point of even playing a preseason game if teams are expected to just run a vanilla offense and defense? Preseason should be about getting a look at what may or may not work with a team's offensive and defensive philosophies. It should be about getting a look at your 2nd and 3rd string players and seeing what they can or can't do. What did the Bengals expect? For the Jets players to just suit up and then go out there and just stretch for 3 hours?

Posted 31 Jul 2014Of course the Jets were his first choice. The fans love him(most of them) and he has a great relationship with Rex but as short as the average NFL players careers are with one injury possibly ending a career you logically cant blame any player for chasing the money or wanting a big paycheck if they produce.
As far as calling Revis and average player that's way to early to call at this point. First off Tampa wasn't a good team or a good fit for him. Second Revis just came off major knee surgery. As someone who has had multiple surgeries and different types...all from injuries I can confidently say from experience that you dont have a clue what you are talking about.
Yes its possible Revis is average now but I highly doubt it. For example... Willis McGahee had major damage to his knees in college in 2003 Fiesta Bowl. Check out the video of it and just looking at it most people thought his career was over. It was a nasty hit causing his left knee to get bent backwards and caused major damage to his knee. Basically destroying his knee. He had multiple surgeries. But ended up having a pretty decent career in the NFL and running back is the hardest position in football to stay healthy with the hits they take. I guess you can add linemen to that but their injuries are usually freak accidents from someone falling on them bending their arms and legs wrong causing the injuries. No one takes punishment like a running back.
Corner is the easiest position in football to have a long career when it comes to injuries because they take fewer hits than anyone else.
As far as Revis surgery and how good he is now only time will tell. Being on a good team helps but speaking from experience....anyone who has had a major surgery that hurts like hell and feels really weak in the area that required surgery it takes time to recover. Some of its physical but a major part of it is mental. After having back surgery multiple times it took years to get over the mental fear that I could easily re-injure my back even though it wasn't physically the case.
It usually takes a long time to get over that fear and most people dont give 100% for a long time and try to protect the area that was injured.
Basically it may be that Revis just needs to trust his knee is fully recovered before he can mentally play to level he was before.
Also you also have to take into account that Revis isn't heard a lot about compared to other corners because he generally doesn't get the interceptions other corners do because qb`s just avoid throwing his way most of the time.
Anyway I'm just saying you should hold your judgment on him. Revis may eat us alive this year and totally shut down the receiver he is covering all by himself.
Well said. ITA.
