    It’s a dumb debate that never should have reared its ugly head in the first place. Everybody knows the truth: Darrelle Revis is an exceptionally talented cornerback, arguably the best in the game. And like every other cornerback in the game, he sometimes plays zone, and he sometimes get double coverage help from his safeties. He is, like every other cornerback in the league, not an island.

    There’s no shame in admitting that, and by no means does it diminish his own abilities, which the Patriots respected enough to target Revis a mere four times (2 completions for 77 yards) in 37 pass plays Sunday. Yet the island myth persists, thanks to Rex Ryan, Revis’s acolytes in the media, and Revis himself, who loved the moniker so much he trademarked it.

    Disable Jersey

    Watching the game on DVD Sunday night what bothered me about Revis was his use of hands to the face in checking Welker coming off the LOS. A much worse offense than the candy ass Polian emphasis rule outlawing contact past the 5 yard line for the other 63 CBs in the NFL.

    Revis gets away with it. What's worse are the commentator who are drooling over him and saying it's skill.
