[QUOTE=Wallace Wright;3538872][B]Revis didn't cover Sims-Walker for much of that game but when he did, MSW didn't do anything.[/B]
And actually, the Jets usually shade the safeties away from Revis, hence Revis island. Ever wonder why they throw on him so much? That's the way our defense works, they bait QBs to throw it at him.[/QUOTE]
...That's how the story goes, yes.
They shade the D, SOMETIMES...or more times than a team would a lesser CB.
[QUOTE]Rex actually pointed that fact out that with Rhodes and his range, sometimes it appears as if he has safety help on his half of the field.[/QUOTE]
So then he was getting help but in appearance only? Is this because Rhodes would quit on it? Or maybe the only plays he got safety help during the season was the Ginn TD, the Sims-Walker TD, and so on?
Great players are usually their greatest when there's other talent around them. It doesn't hurt Revis that the rest of the D was good too, and it shouldn't take anything away since he's clearly a key player in that.
