That's even bigger since it appears that Revis really is all the way back, even at this early juncture.

"I thought he looked outstanding (against the Ravens)," said Ryan. "It was my decision to keep him on the defensive left side, because I thought we could save some running from him, going back and forth. So I wanted to take that away from him, because he only had the week of practice. I just wanted to put him on the left and then we put Cro on the right, and hindsight being what it is, we probably should’ve matched him on (Anquan) Boldin.

"At the time, I felt it would be better that we just keep him in one spot, so he wouldn’t have to travel all the time. But we did that last year some, in some games, we’d just have a left corner or a right corner. Obviously, the kind of day Boldin had, it’s probably easy to go back and question that."

Ryan added that, "He got through the game pretty good. He is in shape. The football shape part of it, I worry about that, and that’s why I wanted to just leave him in one spot. But I think we gotta travel him (now)."

That is, travel him with Moss, and give the public what it wants, which is a marquee matchup within a rivalry game. Should be fun to watch ...
