“Go Look At The Stats”

November 18th, 2013

Darrelle Revis will let his stats vs. Calvin Johnson do the talking

Joe was going to write about this tomorrow, but Joe’s too jacked up to wait. Joe’s had next Sunday’s Bucs-Lions game circled on his calendar for a long time. The matchup between All-World receiver Calvin Johnson and All-World cornerback Darrelle Revis should be epic.

Bucs fans suffered through Raheem Morris trying to figure out how E.J. Biggers and Aqib Talib would handle “Megatron” in 2010 and 2011. It was like a cruel, cruel joke.

But now the Bucs can go toe-to-toe with the best receiver in the game.

Joe asked Revis this afternoon about how and when he’ll start preparing for Johnson. Revis declined to talk about Johnson, saying he only wanted to enjoy the Bucs win against the Falcons right now. But Revis did advise Joe and other reporters to “go look at the stats” when Revis last covered Johnson in 2010, Johnson’s first Pro Bowl season.

Revis held Megatron to one catch for 13 yards.

    I LOVE Darrel Revis, there I said it!!! I Love his drive and passion and his ego is fantastic. SO glad he is a Bucs Fan

    Revis, that was 3 years ago. I think he may have improved a little teensy weensy bit. If anybody can hold him down, it is you Darrelle. Great player; so smooth.

    I think Goldson’s career might be over if he can’t get his head right. He pulls up before tackles now and it is costing him missed tackles. He started to get back in his comfort zone then immediately got hit with a penalty.

    Megatron has improved since that first match up and Revis isn’t quite 100% yet, this worries me, but not near as much as the depleted secondary status. McCoy might need to get 3 sacks per half this game for the Bucs to come out on top.
