In 2009 when Rex Ryan took over the JETS in his introductory press conference he said that young corner Darrelle Revis was the best corner in the league; which made most members of the media chuckle. After all, the media knew the 2nd yr corner out of Pitt was talented and had great upside, especially after making the Pro Bowl under the recently fired Eric Mangini; but the best corner in the league approaching his 3rd season, C’MON NOW REX.

However, it turns out that Rex was right.  In the 3 seasons under Rex, Revis made the Pro Bowl and All Pro team.  He has established himself as the best corner in the NFL and even has an island named after his talent (Revis Island where Wide Receivers get “Lost” and there is no Gilligan, or fine ass Mary Ann and Ginger). Now in his 6th season, the Great Revis has tore his ACL thus ending his season and the Jets season as well according to fans and the media.

Some say Gang Green should pray to the man whose name rhymes with Revis (and if that doesn’t work Tebow your up). The Jets face a tall task no doubt and with “The Beast” (Andre Johnson) and “Fitz” (Larry Fitzgerald) still to come on the schedule.  Can Rex Ryan depend on a corner that struggles to say the names of his 10 kids to be focused enough to place these wide receivers on ALCATRAZ?

I say HELL NAH; although as defensive coordinator of the Ravens he’s had success with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed both missing an extended period of time. However, the Jets don’t have the front 7 as his previous Ravens teams; and the strength of the Jets is the secondary it doesn’t look good for Rex.  People always say you shouldn’t trust a skinny Chef, so can Rex still cook up a mad defense As a Jets fan, I believe in Gang Green even after last week. WATCH THEM EARN IT!!!
