Either way there is probably only 2 or 3 receivers in the game right now that I would take over Revis.
A great CB vs a great WR is certainly debatable.
The reason why the Jets have been able to play well in the secondary without Revis is because they DID have talent behind him, but the board is too busy ripping the GM lately because of the offensive devoid of talent. Well guess what, injuries will do that.
Truth is, the Jets had 3 starting CB's, Cro has stepped up bigtime, and so has Wilson.
To be fair, credit is also due to the coaching staff for the adjustments they made. Also, don't discount the value of having too good safeties playing in the secondary, espeically Landry. If this happened last year, with Leonard and Smith, our secondary would have been in big trouble.
