Vote Revis ’09

Darrelle Revis deserves Defensive Player of the Year

Escaping Revis Island in 2009 has been a daunting task for opposing wide receivers.  

“I went back and looked and I was going to be subtle about this, but if Revis is not the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, something is wrong with the system,” Rex Ryan said. “Nobody, and I mean nobody, in maybe the history of the game has had the challenges that he’s faced week in and week out.” 

Darrelle Revis, who has six interceptions and an NFL-leading 36 passes defended in his third season, has routinely shut down opposing teams’ top receivers such as New England’s Randy Moss, Buffalo’s Terrell Owens, Carolina’s Steve Smith and Houston’s Andre Johnson.  Even in what Revis described as his worst game of the season, he held Reggie Wayne to two catches for 21 yards when the Colts starters were in the game.

November 27, 2009

DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart will be tough to contain

The Jets, losers of 6 of their last 7, still have a lot to play for, and no I’m not talking about the playoffs.  With six games remaining, Gang Green may be on life support when it comes to their playoff chances, but they have a rookie QB who has some things to prove. 

Mark Sanchez became the first rookie Quarterback to win their first three games.  He was the talk of the town even before that, showing up at all the New York City hot spots, and doing a GQ spread before he ever did anything in the NFL.  Sanchez was anointed the second-coming of Joe Namath before even taking a snap.
