and remember... this is a passing league right now. if even one of your corners can't cover, you're a mess defensively. we play Peyton/Demaryius, Rodgers, Cutler, Stafford/Calvin, Rivers, RG III, Romo/Dez etc next season alone.
Plus he makes a ton. Plus he's been in the league for a while now. I'd rather have a young prospect taken with the 19th pick.
Also Revis doesn't really fit our scheme. He's a press corner guy who would have problems in a conference with RGIII, Kapernick, Wilson and the other mobile QB's.
We are a zone defense now.
We are wanting to win the SB next year in our own house, who do we send out their to do that for us? Webby?
in case you haven't noticed our "scheme" stunk up the joint last year. and let's be honest, for most of 2011 too, until the pass rush came on late. it's the same scheme you all want Perry fired over. at least according to the posts I've been reading since about the Cincinnati game
Our scheme (at least as it pertains to our zone coverage) is highly appropriate for the new and ever changing NFL.
And I never once called for PF to be fired. The guy's defense won a SB 12 months ago for God's sake.
There are very few players I mean very few who I'd consider giving up a 1st round pick for. Revis would be one of those few.
I would offer a 2nd and a 5th for Revis and maybe some incentives if he makes pro bowl or whatever. I'm sure he's talented enough to adjust to Fewell's scheme and dominate as well. This would make huge media news and make Giants a little bit more respectable if this were to happen.
