Revis Isn’t A Fan Of Tebow Time: He’s Actually A Critic

Revis the newest of the Tim Tebow critics.

Since coming into the NFL 2010 Tim Tebow has been repeatedly criticized by everyone; analysts, reporters, coaches, you name it. However he’s always answered them in a positive way avoiding any sort of controversy. Though since being named the starter week 7, Tebow has answered them in a new way; winning.

Since becoming the starting quarterback in week 7 for the Denver Broncos they have only lost one game which came to them in week 8 from the Detroit Lions, who won 45-10.

Though despite all the wins and great plays that has happened since making the switch to Tebow, he’s still getting criticized. Except this time, it’s a player. New York Jets corner back Darrelle Revis told the press that this offense won’t work for the rest of the season, “No, not for a whole season, because we know what they’re doing, and we feel comfortable in our game plan,” Revis said. “Yeah, if you have Michael Vick and, I don’t know, Chris Johnson at running back. Yeah, it can work. Those are probably the two fastest guys that can probably get out on the edge on you.”

Now if you look at the stats of both Vick and Johnson and compare them to Denver’s offense or to Tebow and running back Willis McGahee then Revis’ comments don’t make sense. On the season right now McGahee has 127 attempts for 640 yards and three touchdowns compared to Johnson who has 148 attempts for only 496 yards and two touchdowns.

Now when you compare Vick and Tebow, obviously Vick has the better numbers of the two as Tebow has only really played in four and half games. However, if you compare the two from Tebow’s first start on, Tebow wins. In Vick’s last four games he has rushed for 217 yards and zero touchdowns where as Tebow has rushed for 283 yards and one touchdown. Also in that stretch Tebow has been the better starter winning three games compared to Vick who only won two.

Despite being wrong about his comparison Revis wouldn’t stop there as he would go onto say, “We can’t fall asleep back there in the secondary,” Revis said. “It can get boring, especially when a team just keeps running the ball, series after series, play after play.”

Now you can call it what you want, boring or not. But this Denver offense has opposing defenses right they want them and on this Thursday night against the New York Jets ranked 15th against the run will experience something that they haven’t experienced all season long; Tim Tebow.

Its Official Chris Johnson Has The Contract And The Titans May Have The Trophy

Rolling...rolling just keep rolling.

Its official the Tennessee Titans and running back Chris Johnson have come to an agreement…finally. But it was definitely worth the wait, four years $53.4 Million making Johnson the highest paid running back in the NFL. The agreement will be an extension instead of a contract meaning that Johnson will remain a Titan for six years and who knows maybe even more.

Johnson isn’t wasting anytime as he will report to camp either today or tomorrow to prepare him for the upcoming 2011-12 NFL season. Now obviously with a lot of missed practice time you could expect some rust, so Johnson would most likely share some carries with Javon Ringer right? No, he most likely won’t for a couple reasons.

One, he’s Chris Johnson. Two, Ringer has been battling a hip injury and hasn’t even played in one pre-season game yet. Even if Ringer comes back to practice this week he won’t have an effect on Johnson as they both have missed time. Lastly, he has about eight or nine days to prepare himself for week one and let’s be honest, it’s highly doubtful that he was just sitting around during his hold out.

Johnson’s deal also includes $30 million in guarantees and a $13.3 million annual salary in the new extension. Johnson got what he wanted; more money and he deserved it, 4,598 rushing yards in three seasons, that’s pretty amazing. Like best running back in the league amazing…just saying its amazing and that four years $53.4 Million is a good deal for all.

Getting Johnson back may have just saved the Titans season from a waste of year to the year that could be as Ringer wouldn’t have been able to fill the spot of Johnson in the running game or the receiving game. See that’s what people forget that he not only can run for a 100 but he can catch for 100 too making him even harder to stop, causing defenses havoc every Sunday.

So don’t worry Titan fans the man is back and so is your season, so pull the jersey out of the closet, put it on and in the words of Chris Johnson kiss da’ baby and maybe even a Lombardi trophy.
