Revis On Brian Hartline?November 11th, 2013
The Dolphins have two stud wide receivers in Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace. So where will Darrelle Revis spend his time tonight?
It’s a big tactical decision for the New Schiano Order. Wallace is a speedster, and Hartline is more crafty.
The Dolphins writers at the Sun-Sentinel projected Revis would be assigned to take Hartline out the game because he’s part of quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s comfort zone.
Hartline (38 receptions, 477 yards, 2 TDs) could have career bests in receptions, yards and TDs. But Revis is a different animal. If he doesn’t shadow WR Mike Wallace (36 receptions, 480 yards, 1 TD), Revis will spend time on Hartline. If he shuts down Hartline, the game becomes much tougher for QB Ryan Tannehill because he has his best rapport with Hartline.
Joe’s not concerned about Revis; Joe’s concerned about what’s across from Revis. Leonard Johnson has had a poor sophomore season. Danny Gorrer is still fresh off groin surgery, and Michael Adams is a getting his legs back after midseason knee surgery. Johnthan Banks is battling through what is believed to be MRSA.
Unless the Bucs find their M.I.A. pass rush, one of those guys needs a standout game tonight.
