Revis “Understands The Concepts”

June 4th, 2013

Darrelle Revis talked to reporters at One Buc Palace today. Joe will have more on that fun later. However, Greg Schiano acknowledged that his $16 million cornerback is a bit of a wizard off the field when he’s not rehabilitating his surgically-repaired knee.

A reporter relayed to Schiano Revis’ take that he’s got his role in the Bucs defense down pat. And Schiano agreed.

“In the meeting room and in the walkthrough he’s doing very well,” Schiano said. “He understands the concepts.”

Pressed on whether live action was important to getting Revis ready for opening day, Schiano explained that “cuttin’, breakin’ and runnin'” were more important to Revis’ readiness than lining up from a real live receiver in practice or a preseason game.

It’ll be darn interesting to see how much the Bucs protect Revis. The more Joe listens, the more Joe wouldn’t be surprised if Revis first takes the field wearing his Bucs colors at the Meadowlands in September.

    Revis will be starting week 1, and by week 4 none of us will be worried about his performance. Bottom line, he wouldn’t have taken a contract with no guarenteed money if he wasn’t absolutely sure that he was going to be back 100% this year.

    My guess it that Revis will take a couple of snaps in the latter preseason games. Not much. Just enough to get his feel for the game sharpened.

    I was thinking the same thing and then I remembered we play the Jets in week one. It would be just like a preseason game. They have a lame duck coach and twelve backup quarterbacks. This will be the perfect break in game for Revis.

    I haven’t really thought about this before but how awesome is it that we get to start out against (what should be) one of the “bad” teams in the league. Nothing like getting the momentum going with an easy(ier) win. (Not saying it is a slam dunk win but we will probably be favored in that game.)

    imo week one is too soon. let him play some nickle the first few games then start him after the bye.

    its not that awesome WCBF, last place teams play last place schedules. it should not be a surprise, for months i have told you that this team has finished 4th, 3rd, 4th, and 4th in the division.

    Three NFC South teams finished with a 7-9 record in 2012 (Including the Bucs) and the Bucs went 10-6 in 2010, good enough for “3rd”. Your hilarious, “finished 4th, 3rd, 4th, and 4th in the division.” rant is just plain stupid seeing as most teams that finish “2nd” in their division don’t even make the playoffs.

    It just irritates me that you feel your “facts” explain anything & everything about the Bucs this year, not to mention that you think we’re incapable of remembering them, from one minute to the next. Go find a rotten log & eat some grub worms, somewhere…you obviously need an increase in your protein intake.

    Remember the jets are a grown man team.
