It’s hilarious that franchises still go crazy searching for the next top quarterback when everybody knows that defenses win Super Bowls. Revis helped Rex Ryan’s Jets reach successive AFC Championship Games but then disaster struck. He tore his ACL in Week 3 of 2012 and destroyed their playoff hopes.
This was back when some people thought that Mark Sanchez was the Jets’ most important player. However, it soon became clear that Revis was their main man. He did an unbelievable job of smashing opposition receivers and limiting their scoring opportunities (via SBNation).
