So you’ve heard that Darrelle Revis is holding out right? What, you haven’t been on ESPN, Yahoo, watched HBO’s “Hard Knocks”, been on a conference call with Rex Ryan, or have you been living under a rock? Anyway, he is asking for a contract that meets or exceeds Nnamdi’s 3 year $45 million extension. I’m all for any player getting their money, any of us are doing that on a daily basis, but Revis is not better than Nnamdi.
*Did you know that Revis was thrown at 111 times last year…and Nnamdi only 28???!!! That is less than 2 times a game that he saw a ball.
*Did you know that until this year, Nnamdi hasn’t had the chance to cover just the best player on the other team? The Raiders philosophy has been to cover a side of the field, so opposing teams send their best WR to the other side of the field. This year, they are going to let him move around the field, which means more INT’s and TD’s this year.
*Did you know that Nnamdi plays in the Oakland market and Revis plays in the NY market? Last time you remember a Nu Yorker not claiming that one of their own wasn’t the best? Or ESPN?
*Did you know that the coach for Jets is just a bit louder than the coach for the Raiders? What, you couldn’t hear me…ask Rex to be quiet for a second.
Revis a great CB, and deserves his money. Just be noted, Nnamdi is better.
