    Seattle secondary wins championship, revis net a 3rd rounder now?

    Conventional thought is that the great qb wins you the Superbowl... Time and again (Bears, Giants, Baltimore, 49ers, Seattle, even those early Pats teams), it's great defense that wins out.

    Does Seattle's secondary and dismantling of Manning mean Revis is Buc and the Jets get a 3rd?

    I'm thinking yes + this could set the Jets up for an unbelievable draft... Thoughts?

    Revis is going to be on TB roster he's not getting cut. So we will end up with another 3rd rounder. The
    new regime down there is not going to risk him leaving before Lovie Smith even coaches the team

    Revis is going to be a Buc - there's no question about that. The only question is whether they come to an agreement on a renegotiated deal prior to March 3rd and the cut him and re-sign him to that new deal and thus move the pick back to the 4th round. It could happen, but only if Revis and TB are completely on the same page. And they have less than a month to get there.

    There are different ways to win a Super Bowl. There is no specific recipe...Seattle just happened to do it with a good secondary and clutch throws....Giants happened to do it with a good front 4 and clutch throws and running the ball....New England happened to do it with Great D and Good QB play.......BAL happened to do it with great QB play and running the ball.....

    +1.

    His agents would "Carlos Boozer" them so fast it isn't funny. And Tampa knows it, too.

    And Revis is probably too greedy to cooperate with this plan.

    Man, if Sherman and the Seahawks had this season two years ago, we'd be sitting pretty with a guaranteed second rounder instead of a conditional third. Possibly even two seconds (this yr and next)!

    Credit should go to the whole defense, not just the secondary

    Even if you want to give the secondary all the credit, Revis is just one player; the Seahwaks had at least 4 pro bowl caliber DBs on that defense

    Problem is, the secondary didn't stop manning, the pass rush did.

    Great QBs win Superbowl but a pass rush beats great QBs.

    Revis is a key player on any D. The issue is will a new GM want to absorb 16 mil on a CB. I'd say 40-60 he stays. If they dont come to terms this month chances are he isnt coming back.

    I disagree, I don't think there would be any net impact. As much as Sherman was villified as an angry black man and supreme talent after his playoff rant, it was never a point of emphasis that he was a one-man secondary. There was no Sherman Isle.

    If anything, the Seahawks have shown that it takes a great collection of secondary players, and it doesn't hurt to have a great one to go along with the other 3 good ones. But it's not like Sherman is anywhere near the solo coverage artist Revis was.

    Sherman's not even the best member of the secondary on that team. Earl Thomas is miles better and has more of an impact than Sherman.
