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.Google+
