Turn On The Jets 2010/2011 Report Cards – Darrelle Revis

Today we continue our series of evaluating how each player on the Jets performed this past season, along with looking forward to what their role on the team will be next year…up today, cornerback Darrelle Revis

Stat Line – 32 tackles, 10 passes defensed, 1 prolonged holdout

Playoff Stat Line – 15 tackles, 2 passes defensed

Best Moment – Does a single play jump out in your memory from Darrelle Revis’ 2010 season? It doesn’t in my mind. Honestly, I think we have to go with this…

Best Game – You can go with holding Andre Johnson to four receptions for 32 yards when the Jets played the Texans, holding Calvin Johnson to one reception for 13 yards against Detroit, or his performance against New England in the divisional round when he was all over the field, helping limit the Patriots much hyped passing attack.

Overall Evaluation – The holdout certainly didn’t help things for Revis early in the season, as in the Jets first six games, he missed two and a half and was ineffective in two. Revis was basically back to his 2009 form from that point on, despite not making the amount of big plays he did the previous season. Teams did a better job of avoiding throwing at him down the stretch, which obviously contributed to his zero interception total. I can’t give him higher than a B because of the time missed early in the year and the lack of big plays. He set the bar ridiculously high in 2009. (B)

Future – I think we all remember him negotiating a new contract over the summer, right? Even though he hinted a holdout at a future date wasn’t impossible, I would bank on Revis spending most of the next decade in Green and White.
