What I believe is happening here is that the Bucs and Jets have agreed on a trade, and the Bucs and Revis' camp are negotiating a contract - which we all know how that goes. The Jets stick their heads in only for stipulations which affect them.
Football is entertainment. I watch football to be entertained.
And I fail to see what is so goddamn entertaining about watching this sh*tastic offense struggle just to get in the endzone once a game.
This is a matter of resources, get it?
Are you in favor of paying a CB, regardless of how great he is, franchise QB money? Are you in favor of giving a corner a contract on par with franchise signal callers who have won Superbowls and account for over 4,000 yards and 35-40 TD's a season?
If we tie up that kind of money in Revis, say bye bye to Wilkerson in two years. Oh, and if you want to fix the offense, then we better start knocking the ball out of the park on these mid-late round draft picks. You know, the guys who have about a 5-10% chance of ever becoming anything more than a career special teamer?
Trade Revis to the highest bidder and move on.
Regardless, some of us are talking about the pros and cons of trading him. If the overall team can improve by him leaving, then I'll be the first to escort him out the door. Others think that blasphemy.
Like someone already said, some are loyal to the player, others are loyal to the team. My butt is firmly planted in the latter . . .
Because a Tampa or especially a 49r team with Revis and their O will look mighty nice to people in the stands.
While paying his contract.
And once again, really slow, it's about the player, not the team, cap etc. Talking about his play being boring. I want him traded, doesn't mean I will then down play his talents to stroke myself into believing his contributions were minimal or not entertaining
Roy Cummings @RCummingsTBO ProFootballTalk now says Bucs have a deal on table for Revis but deal not good enough for Jets.
Here's the truth - Ruth
I think in general us Jet fans have had few players to really cheer and be proud of based on performance and perception around the league. The fact that we drafted and groomed a HOF player (1st ballot) brings a certain loyalty that as fans is hard to disengage with. With the added fact that we have drafted well over the years outside of Mangold & Brick means that even with the small amount of success we had in 09/10 fans aren't going to be happy when Revis is traded; he's one of the only things we can hang our hat on over a 7 year career as a Jet.
I'll miss him; but his attitude and the NFL landscape of how players are paid dictate that you find and pay your franchise QB 14-20m a year, not a Franchise CB. Period, end of story.
See ya later Revis, thanks for your contribution.
He ain't going nowhere . You heard it here first
What happened to the eagles?
