“Extra Time” And “Staying In The Books”

July 3rd, 2013

Letdown cornerback Eric Wright has been keeping an eye on the $1-million-per-game savior of the Bucs defense, Darrelle Revis, and Wright loves the work ethic he’s seeing from No. 24.

Wright shared his thoughts on Revis’ dedication in one of his blog postings.

Of course, the other acquisition for the secondary this offseason was Darrelle Revis, and though he didn’t participate in OTAs on the field with us, he was down there at the facilities with us, putting in the time rehabbing and even extra time, trying to do everything he can to be ready to go when it’s time to go. He’s a true professional, and I don’t think any of us are worried about his recovery process. He has his timeline, and he’s going to be ready when he’s ready.

You can see the focus and the determination in the way he’s attacking his rehab and the way he approaches the game. I think he’s done a heck of a job of staying in the books and trying to make sure that he picks up the defense as much as he can even though he’s not on the field. That’s a hard thing to do, but he’s one of those guys that can do it.

Wright went on to talk about how Revis already is vocal and leading in the film room.

On NFL Network Monday, Greg Schiano repeated his admiration for Revis’ work ethic, saying again that he’s never seen anyone work on rehab like E.J. Biggers’ replacement.

Today, Joe will fantasize about Revis indeed being 100 percent physically for opening day at the Meadowlands. Mentally, it seems, he’s already there.

    Love that picture. Still cant believe both are Bucs.

    ej biggers replacement come on joe…. hitting the sauce a little early today. Biggers and Revis should never be written in the same sentence.

    couchfan is dead on…i am totally blown away that lewis is still on roster. he must be a good ball boy or serve some other purpose maybe he is schiano’s personal thermostat patrolman.

    Who actually thinks that is Eric Wright talking? Do any of you follow his twitter? LOL

  7. tmaxcon Says:

    JR – I was thinking the same thing. I am trying to be positive and give that loser a second chance but there is no way in hell he is writing those blog entries.

  8. Capt. Tim Says:

    Revis is, IMO, the best defensive player in the NFL.

    That doesn’t happen by accident.

    I think he’ll be ready. And I know that the jets will wish to god he wasn’t!.

    He may help them spiral into a Qb controversy that last all season!!
