    Revis, like any other bright star, may tend to burn out quickly. Let's see how he is doing when he hits 35 yrs old. Ike isn't the Ike of 5 yrs ago, but he is a lot better than many CBs in this league even at his age.
    People don't throw at Revis... period.

    Ike probably see's 3 times the passes Revis does and Ike drops every one of those passes he gets his hand on.

    No doubt Revis is great at defending the pass. But every player has their albatross. Revis is one of the worst CBs in the league for YACs.

    Not all that surprised by the YAC with Revis. He always goes for the INT which can lead to big plays. He wasn't used properly early on the year as well... he is better suited for man to man than zone.

    My uncle coached him in HS at Aliquippa.

    Ike's been the best CB on a good defense for a long time.

    Won a couple of SB's with him being the #1 CB too.

    Matches up on the oppositions best WR nearly 100% of that time.

    Is he great?

    Probably not.

    But here's reckoning he'll be pretty comfortable looking back on his career once he's done. Compare him to what came before him & what the Steelers have had during his tenure. Comparing him to other team's CB's is not taking into account the different schemes & situations these players find themselves in.

    Wins- 1
    2nd- 4

    Other- 4

    Not a lot of CBs with 3 SB starts, 2 SB rings and an INT in the big game...

    Sherman is playing in the system he is put in. That's how Seattle likes it: keeps players on same side of field all the time. And, this just in, it is working out for them.

    That's why the Steelers adjusted to doing that in the latter part of 2013...it worked, too..
