Darrelle Revis Helps Bucs’ WRs

Some would suggest that stud Pro Bowl receiver Vincent Jackson has slipped this year. Sure, he has dropped too many balls. Joe is sure Jackson would admit that (if anyone has a [free] link that charts dropped balls, Joe would be indebted to you. Joe has searched far and wide for such a site and he strikes out each time).

Now Jackson hasn’t been flashing much of late and Joe attributes that to being double- if not triple-teamed. You think opponents lay awake at night worrying about Skye Dawson? So with only one legitimate threat at wide receiver, opponents are going to lock down Jackson and Joe expects the Dixie Chicks to do the same tomorrow.

Jackson, however, believes he and Bucs receivers are getting help from cornerback Darrelle Revis, who has both tested lesser receivers, and pushed Jackson to be better.

“Absolutely. We knew that coming into training camp. It’s a lot of fun for us to work together. I’ve played him a few times in my career. You like that, you like the challenge, you like playing guys that are considered some of the best at their position and it brings the best out of you,” Jackson said. “All we’re going to do is continue to elevate each other’s game.”

Granted, Revis isn’t quite yet 100 percent from offseason knee surgery, but he’s about there he admits. Revis also is a part-time coach with the secondary. The Bucs’ young cornerbacks just rave about how much they have learned from him.

Maybe Revis is why quarterback Mike Glennon is allergic to throwing deep balls? Revis has him so spooked in practice that it carries over to games?

    How are the pay sites an issue for you? They’re a tax write off so out of all of us you should have the fewest difficulties with getting that info

    Outside of Banks incredible pick all of the cb’s outside of Revis have been poor. Sure lack of pressure and bad schemes don’t help but it seems some no name receiver always has a career game against us. Hope Revis can teach them but he can’t teach size, speed, and athleticism.

    Revis is the consummate pro and worth what he makes. I’m sure he’ll be the best CB in the league for another 3-4 years.

    No to Bridgewater, Mariota and Manziel. Yes to DE, OL, CB, WR or TE.

    Keep Schiano!

  5. Bucfan#37 Says:

    Glennon is not throwing the deep ball, because nobody is open to catch it.

    Revis is back, take that to the bank, and what’s scary is that he probably isn’t 100%, which is a testament to how talented this freak of a corner he really is, how fun will it be NEXT year?!

    I was under the impression that first teams practiced against the scout (2nd) team during the season.

  10. Chef Paul Says:

    Judging by those two links provided, I have no idea what a dropped pass is. Jackson only has 4 drops? I would have bet the farm he had at least double that.

  11. Capt. Tim Says:

    Revis is the best defensive player in the game. He improves everyone around him

    Keep Schiano?? Lmao
    Guess 2 and 16 is good enough for some knuckleheads!
    We’ve actually regressed from the Raheem years!!! AFTER the Glazers brought in 6 of the best players in the league!!!

    Raheem did better, with NO Probowl talent!!!

    Raheem did a far superior job of coaching, compared to Schiano.
    And Raheem wasn’t good. No discipline

    But we won more games with him.
    FlBoy, you got a bet on Schiano having worst record in history, or something?
    No way you can look at this team, and see anything that has improved!!

    You are starting to sound as nonsensical as Bucfan
