Welcome to Revis Island, Where Holding is Allowed


We are heading out to New York to face the Jets and that means that either Malcom Floyd or Vincent Jackson (probably VJ) will be matched up with Darrelle Revis on Revis Island. Revis is one of the top corners in the game and he can shut down opposing team’s top wide receivers. It will be a tough match-up for our guys, but does Revis get away with a little holding when covering his receivers.

In the Monday Night game when the Jets faced the Miami Dolphins and there was a play where Revis and Brandon Marshall got locked up down the field where Revis picked off the pass. Revis went onto WFAN, a New York Radio station, with radio host Mike Francesca and was questioned about the play. Francesca and Revis got into an argument on the whole play until Revis eventually hung up on him (you can see the whole video below).

The play is up for debate, but now there will be more eyes paying attention to the play of Revis and the possibilities of holding. Hopefully the refs will be looking in his direction a lot during the game and start calling some ticky-tack offenses on him. We will take any advantage and if the New York media is going to help us out and get in Darrelle Revis‘ head, then we will take it!

VJ is coming and Revis might have to do a whole lot of grabbing and holding to slow him down. If Revis does that to Vincent, I will be pissed and would be looking for the flag also!

    I was waiting for a flag on that play too.

    Cromartie hangs on to receivers for the entire game without letting go and is probably flagged on it less than 10% of the time. Revis relies on superior positioning most of the time.
