[QUOTE]In Response to Re: McCourty Vs. Wilson : In all honesty, I don't recall QB's throwing away from Revis in his rookie year too much either. I remember Moss hauling in a TD bomb from Brady over 3 Jets defenders, one of which was a fresh new corner named Revis. That isn't a knock on Revis, just the way it is. It's part of a learning curve for rookies. Playing is what makes them learn and possibly become a stud player. McCourty is on the right track. Gotta like what I've seen from him thus far.

They weren't. Clearly, Revis ascended into a lock down Pro Bowl CB last year.
Rex's D was implemented and it's helped Revis play better.
In 2008, he was good, but not as good as 2009.
In 2007, he was a typical rookie he looked awful at times and show flashes he could be good, other times.
This whole "he's the best, never gets beat, is going to the HOF" rhettoric is concocted by the Jets organization to promote their players, especially whom they picked in the draft recently.
Mike Tannenboob has been under big time pressure to generate excitment and this is why Rex RYan is an embarrassing cheerleader all week long, too.
It's all part of the sales package.
And yes, it goes back to the PSL thing. Favre was signed to get people excited for PSLs.
Revis was torched last year by Tedd Ginn for crying out loud. And Chad Henne.
He just got torched on Sunday with a dropped TD pass to Kevin Walter.
Shutdown CBs don't get torched that frequently. Revis is like Samuel. A very good Pro Bowl CB, one of the best, but he will get beaten for TDs in single coverage.
The media starts repeating things over and over and some people start believing it.
Nmandi Asamhoua has been better than Revis and been doing it a lot longer to boot. He barely has the ball thrown in his direction, while Revis is constantly challenged and beaten plenty.
Wake me when he has back to back Pro Bowl seasons (legit).
