Rex clearly feels that the team’s attitude is improved with Revis back on the field:

Well, I think you feel good when you have the best player on the field, that can’t hurt you. They have some great players over there at Miami, they have a great left tackle, Jake Long, they have an excellent guard beside him, they have Reggie Bush (who’s) a tremendous football player, but there’s only one Darrelle Revis. I know I feel great about it. It’s hard not to smile if he’s out there, you feel great as a play-caller, Mike Pettine and all (of them). You feel good having the best player (out there).

Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is thrilled well. He talked about how he looked in practice when he was asked if Darrelle looked 100%. He said, “Sure. He looks like Darrelle.”

The game plan doesn’t change that much when Darrelle isn’t around. It changes a little, as Mike pointed out:

It changes, but not a lot. We felt confident moving (Antonio) Cromartie around a little bit, but it definitely affects some of the calls, where you felt comfortable leaving him basically alone on half the field, whereas when he’s not in there, it’s a handful of things.

Hopefully there will be no setbacks. We saw last week that Pittsburgh killed the Jets with underneath stuff in the air, as well as the long touchdown to Mike Wallace. As good as the guys they have are, as coach Ryan said, there is only one Darrelle Revis.
