Revis is amazing, best defensive player in the NFL IMO, but there is more to it then that, as he isn't the "most valuable defensive player in the nfl". He can't affect a play on every down like a DE/OLB or QB. Yes he can take a WR out of a play but that is only 1 of 11. A pass rusher can impact the entire offense.
Also, look at the makeup of the team after you pay Revis $18-20 million a year.
There is more to it then just "he is the best"....the organization has 53 players to think about, they aren't fans.
One of the most insightful posts I've read in a long time.
Love Revis and believe he is the best at what he does. Unfortunately being a CB, you're limited in how you can impact the game.
