Revis takes away your best receiver no matter what. There is no way around that. Put that receiver in motion and he will still cover him. To stop a great pass rusher, there are numerous possible solutions to eliminate or at least alleviate his destruction on your offense; have your QB frequently roll out to the other side, double team him with two linemen, double team him with a RB, double team him with a tight end etc...
True, but it's still no reason to pay that CB top QB money. This is especially true considering how terrible the rest of the team is (QB, WR, LB, etc.).
At the end of the day, a HoF CB is a luxury. We don't NEED him.
But, that's just my take on it.
