Darrelle Revis: Wide Receivers Better BewareApril 22nd, 2013
Video of new Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis shows the former Jets stud seeming very subdued, soft-spoken, almost shy. But that was not the same Revis Joe met when Revis had a sitdown with the local pen and mic club in the Bucs’ media work room this afternoon.
It was as if Joe was watching and listening to antoher man. Revis was engaging, outgoing, funny, and most of all, passionate about winning football games.
“I’m all about winning,” Revis said.
And being physical. Revis noted that the kind of secondary Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik has built this offseason is a stern warning to opposing wide receivers: Cross our paths at your own peril.
“We are going to try to play intimidating,” Revis said. “If you get off my island, [safeties Dashon] Goldson and [Mark] Barron are right there, too, and if you come across the middle, you will get tattooed.”
Now that right there just gets Joe worked up for football in the middle of April.
Joe has a hunch that Dominik isn’t finished adding a cornerback. Something tells Joe the contrast to this season’s secondary and last year’s heinous display of pass defense will be virtually a night-and-day difference.
