Not that I value what these numbskulls say, but did Mariotti just refer to Revis as maybe the best cornerback ever to play? I tuned in just as he was making the statement, and I got off work early today so I've had a few cervezas. Did anyone else hear this?
I can't dispute that. I'm only 30, and I can't claim to have watched every great corner play full 16-game seasons, but Revis' 2009 is the best I've ever seen.
+1, Deion used leave some space to showboat making picks but couldn't tackle for his life. Revis is the complete package. Cover, tackle, make eggs benedict, fix your transmission and sleep with your girlfriend. He is the best cornerback I've ever seen. Ever.
I can't say I've paid close enough attention to other teams' corners throughout all my years (since the 60's) of watching football to say definitively that he's the best. But I can tell you he's had the best season I've ever witnessed by a Jet cornerback!
