I think what he's trying to say if revis played with bad-mediocre safeties who didn't do much so he did most of the work.

That's not what he said though. He said Revis played on an island with no safety help over the top which is not true. That would mean the Jets would be blitzing on every single play. In 2011, they were 12th in the league in blitz percentage.

Serious question: The Seahawks are obviously more talented on defense than the Jets. Seattle has a top 5 defense and probably the best secondary in the league. Does that give Sherman an advantage? It obviously depends on what schemes the teams run, but I don't watch either of them enough to know that.

Best cover-2 corner in the league? Maybe. But he has Charles Tillman to fight for that title.

I just feel like comparing a cover-2/slot guy to an outside man guy is basically like comparing a running back to a wide receiver, or a tight end to a wide receiver or a 5-tech DE to a 7-tech DE. They're just different positions.

Winfield is asked to cover about 1/6th of the field, whereas Sherman and Revis have to cover 1/2 of it. Winfield is great at what he does, and the run defense aspect of it makes it just as tough or nearly as touch as Sherman and Revis trailing WRs all over the field, but it's just entirely different.

I don't think you can properly compare them. I think the argument at hand is best shutdown corner, and Winfield is not a shutdown corner, nor has he ever been.

I was entirely kidding man. It's stupid to argue this, really.

Personally, Revis is the best corner in the league. Sherman is probably 2nd, maybe 3rd. He had one good year. It may say that Revis has x pass deflections, and Sherman has x pass deflections, but if you watch Revis' pass deflections, they are absurd ones that he has no business making, where it's a perfectly thrown ball.

Sherman is no joke, but the dude is just unbearable, really.

The two will never go against each-other. It's like when people say Brady beat Peyton. He didn't. He has never lined up against Peyton Manning on a single snap in a game they have both been a part of. I hate Revis, I hate Sherman, I'd rather have Revis on the Bills than Sherman on the Bills. But in two years, that could flip, who knows. Nnamdi was fucking amazing in Oakland, went to Philly, and was exposed. Revis is in a blitz-heavy scheme, and more often than Sherman is left on an island.

Yes. Depends on who else is up for it that year.
