    I don't think their D will be torched. I think their passing game will struggle. If they start 0-3 that will be the reason. If that's the case I don't think whether Revis signs or not is the key.

    I disagree. They generated most pressure through blitzing. You go up against a good QB like Manning, or against a team that can protect against and you will get burnt doing that ... unless you have a Revis out there to cover for it. Add in the loss of Pace for a few games, I just don't see that defense being quite as good as everyone thinks they will be.

    As Phins fans we like to pretend that Revis Island is horribly overrated a legend only his own mind, but the guy IS good. Easily a top 3 corner in the NFL with Nnamdi and Woodson. You cant just lose a guy like that and pretend you can play the same way without any hiccups.

    Apparently the Jets kept 5 running backs and 2 fullbacks. Why would you keep five running backs? That doesn't make sense to me. Can a Jet fan explain?

    Best part is, they play the Ravens(Anquan Boldin), Patriots(Moss), and Dolphins(Marshall), the first 3 games of the season. They're about to see what it feels like having a rookie going up against elite receivers in the NFL.

    I do believe that Revis is a top 3 CB. IMO only Nnamdi is in the conversation. But that doesn't change the fact that they'll still blitz with the CBs they have. It isn't even that much speculation on my part since we saw them do that in the preseason. What we also saw in the preseason is that this is still a likely top 5 defense, not as good as last year but still very good.
