CB Darrelle Revis announces retirement


Recommended Posts

At one time, the best cover corner in the game. Revis Island wasn't just a gimmick, it was an actual situation where wide receivers could literally not get in the game due to Revis.

Such a great defender to watch in his prime. All the best to him in his retirement and what he decides to do in the future.

Heck of a player and career, congrats on being able to walk away

Sherman comments on Revis:


"Let’s look at a comparison a lot of people have made in recent years:

Richard Sherman vs. Darrelle Revis.

Revis and I both play at the line of scrimmage, but he plays it totally different than I do. People look at us and say, “They’re both at the line of scrimmage, so they’re both playing press. So it’s the same.”

That’s what it looks like — but we’re actually playing two different versions of press.

Revis uses a technique some corners call soft-shoeing. It’s where you stand at the line of scrimmage — in press — and slowly shuffle back off the line at the snap and mirror the receiver. It’s a pretty common way of playing press, and Revis is very adept at it."
