    Mr. J. Henderson could be on the team for just the first couple games, Titans and Rams since they have two of the best running backs in the league, Johnson & Jackson, and rely on their ground game.

    JFB go for the DHB jersey…You’ll look like a genius by after the Titans game when he trumps every DB on the field…I have faith in this kid…His work ethic is great and his heart is great.. Every1 laughed when he did his lil Muscle flex but I was Happy to see his confidence and proud he was just to catch the ball…His goal in life is not to be a bust and be successful and after having the ppl we have had in the past that means alot

    Revis most often is lauded for his man-to-man defense… .

    “When I see Darrelle Revis playing cover corner, I see Kobe Bryant in a one-on-one isolation matchup”, ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer said. “Darrelle Revis has a knack for shutting down an opponent’s top receiver.”

    After all, why would opposing teams dream of throwing in Revis’ direction if he’s such a lockdown cornerback? He led the NFL in passes defensed.
    With a luxury like Revis essentially eliminating the other team’s best receiver, the defense has all sorts of options.

    Palmer’s misguided throw on Saturday was against Revis in man-to-man coverage. So Palmer chose to do that — for whatever reason.

    “Will he get beat? Yes, I guess he can get beat,” Ryan said of Revis, “but I’ll take my chances. If there is one guy that I want to cover somebody, with my paycheck on it, I want it to be Darrelle Revis. Period.”

    Bottom line is Revis can play zone but he is most known for his man to man coverage skills. He is nothing like Deangelo Hall.

    #1 – Revis plays WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY more zone in that scheme then he would would in Oakland….. This is FACT.

    #2 – Man or Zone…… he has a MUCH better pass rush in the exotic blitz packages in that defense.

    #3 – He isn’t coming here… Get over your deluded “Crazy Ol’ Al” lovefest…. It isn’t happening.. Good Day.

    The Raiders Transactions page now includes Stevie Brown on the list of players released. F’ing idiots. There are at least 3 other players that should have been released before Brown, including Williams, Figurs, and Eugene.

    I seriously doubt that he’ll make it through wavers.
