Darrelle Revis Says He’s The Boy WonderJune 21st, 2013
In the mythical Buccaneers world of Batman, it’s clear to Joe that Greg Schiano is Commisioner Gordon, Bill Sheridan is Chief O’Hara, Dashon Goldson is Batman, Darrelle Revis is Robin, and Rachel Watson is Catwoman.
The roles weren’t all clear to Joe until yesterday, when Revis himself declared he’s the Boy Wonder. At his football camp in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, Revis told his hometown newspaper that Dashon Goldson and he are the NFL’s Dynamic Duo.
“He is the best safety in the league, as of today. And I’m saying that boldly,” Revis said, a wide smile on his face. “No knock on Troy (Polamalu) and all of those guys, but he’s the best, and he’s only in his eighth year, which is awesome. He’s Batman. I’m Robin.”
Joe loves the big talk from Revis. It’s fun, and his teammates and fans are listening. Joe hopes Revis is chatty with media during the season. He was known for that in New York, and hopefully he’ll step forward as a voice of the team in Tampa.
Joe can’t wait to see the real tough-guy swagger Goldson and Revis bring to the Bucs defense. It’s been missing since the glory days of the franchise, and Joe suspects a lot of fans have forgotten what a fearsome secondary and veteran, All-Pro talent look like back there and the impact they deliver.
As for the rest of the Batman characters, well, Joe thought he might cast rockstar general manager Mark Dominik as Bruce Wayne, but Joe didn’t want to get the serial Dominik bashers all worked up on the first day of summer.
