I am sure by now, every fan of the NFL has formulated an opinion on whether or not the New York Jets were in the wrong by trading Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for this year’s 13th overall pick and a conditional pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Both arguments have great points, however the bottom line is that the Jets are approaching rock bottom at a rapid pace.
First off, I would be wrong to condemn the Jets organization for ridding themselves of the headache that Revis created in the previous months. The two parties were on different levels and something needed to be done, and the more I mull over this trade, the more I think they made out like bandits.
Bbut then I start to think about the on-field production that the Jets are going to miss. Also, the fact that the value for Revis could have spiked later on in the race.
Either way, this move foreshadows a changing of the guard at Metlife Stadium. Finally the NFL can say good riddance to one of the most asinine, annoying and downright idiotic figures in the league.
No, I’m not talking about Tim Tebow, I am referring to Rex Ryan. In a perfect world, Ryan would not be able to even start Week 1 with this team, but hopefully he will be out of the big apple by at least the bye week, which comes in the second week of November.
Revis was the glue that held this Jets defense together and now that he is in the sunshine state, there are only dark skies on the horizons for anyone dawning gang green. For now, Jets fans must keep the faith that the ninth and 13th overall picks in this year’s draft are home-runs.
