Jets Glimpse Life Without Darrelle Revis

Gary Myers of the New York Daily News points out that the New York Giants last night exposed the potential weakness of the New York Jets secondary if Darrelle Revis does not end his holdout.

Antonio Cromartie jumped up to the No. 1 spot. He gave up just one completion, a 13-yarder to Hakeem Nicks, but he also dropped two interceptions. First-round pick Kyle Wilson was promoted to Cromartie’s spot and was not tested.

They were not the problem.

When Revis comes back – I still think he plays in the Sept. 13 opener – Wilson can return to being the nickel corner. But Monday night, the backup corners were beaten for touchdowns by Giants rookie Victor Cruz.

Dwight Lowery, at the moment the nickel corner when three wideouts are on the field, was outmaneuvered by Cruz for a 64-yard score and then Cruz torched Drew Coleman on a 34-yard TD. By this time, Eli Manning was long gone from the game after needing 12 stiches to repair a three-inch cut on his forehead. Lowery and Coleman were beaten on throws by Giants backup Jim Sorgi.

I will continue to say this until the Jets prove me wrong. They will not win the Super Bowl without Revis.
