You can make a legit argument for Peyton Manning being one of the Top 2 or 3 QB's in the history of the game.
The guy has won a Superbowl, broken countless records, and accounts for over 30 TD's a season.
Revis is a f*cking CB who even on his best day is still only taking away your #1 receiver.
If Revis was willing to sign for $12-13 million per, I'd say lock him up yesterday. But all of this talk of "pay Revis whatever he wants" is beyond retarded.
Yeah, who cares about fixing this abortion of an offense and putting points on the board as long as we can watch Revis run step for step with the opposing teams #1 receiver every week.
You are completely full of SH*T. You call it a goofy analogy ONLY because you want to lessen the value of a CB. Really depends on what your line of thinking is when building a SB champion. You think CB's are expendable. I think that makes you a dingbat that obviously doesn't watch Jets football.
And don't lessen, even for a second, what Darrelle Revis is. He's the best CB in the game today and will likely go down as the second best or best CB to have ever played the game. He creates a numbers mismatch on the field on every single play the defense is on the field. Mario Williams doesn't do that. Jason Pierre Paul doesn't do that. JJ Watt doesn't do that. Not on every single play at least. You never have to give him Safety help over the top. Just put him on an island with the opponents best receiver and forget about it.
CB along with QB, WR, LT, and LB/DE are the most important positions when building a football team IMO. You act as though QB should be 75 million per season of a 122 million dollar salary cap. That's dumb. There is more than enough money to go around under the cap to pay your players what they are worth and still win the SB.
And you're an idiot for thinking we'll never have an offense so long as Revis is making top dollar. You just want to b*tch about what he could potentially make.
