New Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis has spent

long enough in Tampa to know one thing. It's not New York.
















 

"The organization's great. It's real laid back down there. It's

not a lot of pressure as it is in New York," Revis told the Aliquippa
Times this week.


Revis still has to live up to his lofty contract and expectations.
But it's clear he's digging his new digs, and the relative lack of
media scrutiny. He also likes the talent around him, especially new
teammate Dashon Goldson.


"He is the best safety in the league, as of today. And I'm saying
that boldly," Revis said. "No knock on Troy (Polamalu) and all of those
guys, but he's the best, and heâs only in his eighth year, which is
awesome. He's Batman. I'm Robin."


It's interesting that Revis made himself the green tights-wearing
sidekick in this scenario, but it speaks to amount of talent in the

Buccaneers' secondary. Second-year pro Mark Barron also has

a chance to break out, and cornerback Eric Wright has shown

flashes as a pro.


Perhaps Revis no longer feels like he has the weight of a franchise

on his shoulders.

That's because their fans don't care. Enjoy irrelevancy Darrelle...

Yeah, I guess today is sort of a bad time to be making a pejorative comparison to LeBron, huh.

None of it is guaranteed. Plus, he plays a marginally important position... if they fail to get into the playoffs, the first head to roll with be Josh Freeman. He's the QB. Schiano is safe, he drafted Glennon right? So, a new QB that is "his guy" automatically gets him another year or two.

 

Revis will be about 5-6 layers of blame removed from being the scapegoat WHEN, not if, they miss the playoffs.

Less pressure obviously, but that also means less positive media coverage for him; he will never be covered like he was in New York. I think the Jets will finish with a better record than the Bucs this year, and Idzik will be shown to have made the right move that one player who almost never touches the ball is not worth 16 mil a year.

He stole Cromartie's line. I guess thats a broken, mentally checked out Revis just trying to emulate the best corner in the league.

I'm surprised that Revis doesn't hold that opinion of Eric Smith. ;)

Great player but a Greedy POS, An Evil side of me wants him to come back half the player he was in N.Y.

Paying him 16m per and having no idea if he'd be the same player would have ham strung us.
As good as he was I got feed up with the constant hold outs and blackmail.

And if he doesn't come back like he was, before long no one will remember or talk about the scrutiny Idzik & the Jets went through this offseason.  It'll seem, in hindsight, like a "duh, of course" move.  Meanwhile the press was all over him for even considering the idea of trading Revis, arguably the best on-field player the franchise has ever had, and again for only getting back a #13 pick (not even a top 10 pick) in a top-light draft and a conditional 4th next year.

 

Meanwhle if Revis is great again for years to come he'll certainly have to deal with continued criticism (particularly if/when there's a big bump in the cap limit shortly) he may never live down, no matter how kookie $16M/year (and forgoing a #1 pick and more) is for a team still at square 1 of a massive rebuild (with super-little cap room to spend at the time).

Thats everyone. Everyone was tired of the constant holding out and money talk. I am hoping he is away for a year or two.. then comes back. Sure, he would be a lesser talent at that point.. but it was nice having a homegrown talent that was so elite. I'd like to see him come back and ultimately retire in green and white.

By the end of week 2, we should have our answer.

Why is that? 1 game against Sanchez is meaningless.  1 game against Brees frankly is as well; he had multi-interception games against the Giants and Falcons last year (5 vs Atlanta who didn't exactly have a lockdown secondary).

 

I was referring to hindsight of a year or even a few years from now anyway.  Given some time, it'll look like it was so-obviously smart or so-obviously stupid based on how things played out in hindsight.  Meanwhile at the time there would have been a lot of controversy whether Revis was traded or kept (for one rebuilding season before leaving via FA).

 

Anyway, by the time this comes to pass no one will remember my inconsequential posts here.

Yeah, I understood your premise. And don't worry, I'll remember.. I'll remember.
