Sims Walker takes a shot at the best corner in Football

Sims-Walker takes minor shots at Revis, Jags' offensive line

Posted by Mike Florio on March 26, 2010 4:36 PM ET

Our freelance reporter Rick Cordella, who moonlights as the G.M. of NBC Sports Digital, had one more bit of information from his brief trip to Las Vegas for the Interactive Sports Conference.

Jaguars receiver Mike Sims-Walker was in attendance, and Sims-Walker answered some questions in a roomful of folks. Though Chris Johnson was more colorful and outspoken, Sims-Walker offered up a few nuggets worth mentioning.

As to Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, widely regarded as one of the best cover corners in the game, Sims-Walker said that Revis plays for the best defensive team, and that he has lots of safety help. (Sims-Walker added the CYA caveat "not to take anything away from him" after, of course, taking something away from him.)

Regarding Jags quarterback, David Garrard, Sims-Walker was asked whether Garrard is "elite," probably since coach Jack Del Rio recently suggested that Garrard isn't. Sims-Walker said that Garrard can be elite, if he gets time in the pocket.

Finally, regarding the one player who has been most linked with Jacksonville in the offseason -- quarterback Tim Tebow -- Sims-Walker's comments was simple: No comment.

Wait, the same Mike Sims Walker whose had just over 1000 yards receiving yards while playing 4 years in the league, or the same guy who had only 3 receptions and 49 yards against the Jets when he was barely covered by Revis, but Sheppard and Lowery?

Have fun with Tim Tebow next year douchy :bwahaharoll:

He's one of those non-Jet players that isn't on ESPN all too often.

He's not wrong...if multiple WR's are saying that Revis gets help in coverage then doesn't he get help in coverage? It's not like it's a big deal. Who's really covering Andre Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald perfectly all the way down field? Revis had a great season and is obviously a top CB talent, but safety help is one of the natures of the position.
