Darrelle Revis is “Confident” He Will Be Ready For Week One

It may be only June 5th, but it is never too soon to look ahead to week one of the NFL season. I mean really, is it ever too soon?

It especially isn’t too soon, apparently, if you are Darrelle Revis. He is in the midst of his rehab from his injury, but he is looking ahead to coming up to New York week one. Clearly, that is his goal:

“I’m confident,” Revis said Tuesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “I’m cutting. (Bucs trainer Todd Toriscelli) might tell me to slow down a little bit, but I’m going full tilt and I’m cutting because I’m feeling good. Cutting and running and doing what I have to do.”

He already says he is feeling good about the Bucs defensive schemes:

“I think I’m getting comfortable now,” Revis said. “I’m in the walkthroughs, I’m in the meeting. The defense is easy. I’m a veteran and some of the things we did in New York, coach (Greg) Schiano does down here, too. I’m fine with that. I think the biggest thing is making sure I’m 100 percent when I step out there with the guys, my teammates, and we go out there and play some great football.”

I can appreciate the spirit of competition, but the more I listen to him speak, the happier I am that he is gone. What was he ever so upset with the Jets about? Making him a rich man? Making him a famous player? How dare the Jets be so mean to him! You know what? I hope he is ready to go down. Because he will.

    and there’s some things they do down there that the jets wouldn’t dare do, like attack the qb on a kneeldown play. i imagine he’s looking forward to his second career sack on one of those, classy guy that he is. he’d probably make the espn play of the week. being as he’s missed 19 of his last 48 regular season games as well as parts of two or three more, maybe he shouldn’t be so confident about being out there for game 1. keep running and cutting, dude. tear it up! good riddance. richardson will help our defense much more this year than that guy did last year, that’s for sure.

      totally agree. YOu can see why I am getting sick of him now, more and more.

        alan, i was sick of him before they traded him. early in the offseason i was optimistic about keeping him due to all the cap space next year. i believe you pointed out to me how unlikely it would be for them to keep him, at which point i started looking at the brighter side. grabbing a few draft picks (i was expecting a bigger haul, but i’m content with what we got, we were playing against a stacked deck) to go along with not tieing up ridiculous money on someone who doesn’t care where he makes the money he’ll never live to spend. now he gets to play for schiano. what a dope. and in the meantime, cro, who did a really nice job filling his shoes, sounds like he appreciates being here as well as appreciating how the jets helped him through a rough financial time. quite a difference, huh? i’m liking cro more and more.

          I hadn’t thought about that with Cro lately but you are right. He really is an appreciative guy, very humbled by what the team has done for him
