Darrelle Revis > Richard ShermanFebruary 11th, 2014
There used to be a war of words between stud cornerbacks Darrelle Revis of the Bucs and Richard Sherman of the Seahawks.
Well, the war of words was sort of one-sided, as Sherman likes to hear himself talk. Revis is more of an understated fellow. But it is still a cool debate. Which corner would you rather have?
For LeSean McCoy, a scary-talented running back for the Philadelphia Eagles, it’s a no-brainer. he would take Revis, so reports Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.
Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy criticized Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, saying he wouldn’t want him on his team and prefers Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis.
“I would take Darrelle Revis, he’s better,” McCoy told Sirius XM Radio. “If you watch Darrelle Revis’ tape, if you take his best clips, it’s not even close.”
Well, consider that Revis got to the Pro Bowl largely playing on a bum wheel. That’s pretty impressive.
What Joe is looking forward to seeing is how defensive-minded Lovie Smith uses Revis. Remember that once upon a time, Lovie was a cornerbacks coach. And Lovie is a good enough coach not to try to force a system down a player’s throat when that player may not be at his best in said system. In other words, expect Lovie to craft coverage to best utilize Revis.
It should be fun to watch.
