Darrelle Revis will be a full go against his former team on Sunday
For many players, returning to the stadium of the team that drafted you to face your old teammates can bring on a lot of nerves and emotions. In Revis' case, he'll probably be quick to forget about those nerves, or maybe even skip them altogether.
Always focused and ready to take on a challenge, Revis has long been regarded as the league's top cornerback, and with recent advances in knee surgery, Revis will most likely return to his dominant form. His first assignment since going down with an injury back in September of 2012 will be... I'm not really sure.
The Jets' No. 1 receiver is Santonio Holmes, but he is expected to play limited snaps, if any at all. Jeremy Kerley is probably the best receiver on the team, but he works primarily out of the slot, and Revis' strength is on the outside. Raw second-year pass catcher Stephen Hill is the next best option for the Jets, but Revis sticking on him would be like using Alcatraz as a toddler's playpen.
The Jets will have rookie Geno Smith behind center in Week 1. When we last saw Smith, he was heaving up interceptions to the New York Giants - he had three interceptions in his one half of play.
Revis will be defending subpar receivers who are fielding passes from a raw rookie quarterback who has struggled with turnovers. If Smith does decide to throw Revis' way, there's almost no chance any good comes out of it for Gang Green. Jets fans will probably experience quite the nostalgia when Revis contributes to the thwarting of the Jets' passing attack.
