And you are right about Watt against the Pats. I wouldn't say nothing, but he did have little impact on the game. But I have never seen a player dominate every single game. There is no such thing.
I have this discussion many times and I know my view is relatively unpopular with Jets fans b.c we have Revis. But I value pass rush over coverage. And when a player is an elite pass rusher as well as being a great run defender, that is what puts them over the top in my book. But I completely understand the argument that can be made for Revis. He is a special talent and IMO the greatest player in the history of our franchise not named Namath. Some people might put him over Namath.
Btw..... I'm a huge Namath fan. Both him and revis grew up 15 miles apart..... However, I'd have to side with revis as the greatest ever . It's my generation.. My aunt would kill me if she read this. Lol
