Darrelle Revis Worried About Getting Bored Facing Tim Tebow, Broncos Offense
If there are cornerbacks out there in the NFL who are looking for an extra bye week, Tim Tebow is the man to provide them with it. I realize everyone on the field is responsible for making plays on the ball and coming up with tackles, but defensive backs who are used to a pass-happy NFL are likely to be shell shocked when facing Tebow and the Broncos. You know, the Broncos who threw it eight times last Sunday and completed exactly two passes — and somehow won.
Darrelle Revis understands it will be a different kind of game Thursday night when the Jets take on the Broncos.
“We can’t fall asleep back there in the secondary,” Revis said. “It can get boring, especially when a team just keeps running the ball, series after series, play after play.”
Well he’s certainly right about the not falling asleep part. Regardless of whether or not the Broncos throw a single pass against the Jets, New York can’t afford a loss. They are already one game behind New England for the AFC East lead and tangled up in a tight wild card race. If they lose to a team like Denver, their season will be in danger. Rather than falling asleep, Revis needs to step forward and help out on the box or be ready to make a play when Tebow gets to the edge or runs a play fake. With the position the Jets are sitting in and seven games remaining, boredom is not an option.
