Can the New York Jets Still Make the Playoffs Without Darrelle Revis?

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIISeptember 24, 2012

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis will miss the remainder of the 2012 NFL season with what is being described as a completely torn ACL. Jets head coach Rex Ryan addressed the media on Monday afternoon to discuss the loss of arguably the best defensive player in the entire NFL. 

Losing Revis strikes a serious blow to whatever playoff chances the Jets had left. The strong play of the Jets D made up for a lot of the deficiencies of the offense. Gang Green averaged only 2.7 yards per carry against Miami, and Mark Sanchez was only able to lead the offense to their second touchdown in two games.

The acquisition of you-know-who hasn't helped at all. Tim Tebow has only been a distraction from team business, and his production in his tailor-made "Wildcat" scheme has been negligible. If only the Jets could play Tebow at cornerback...

That responsibility will actually fall to Kyle Wilson, the Jets' first-round pick in 2010 who struggled mightily when thrown into the fire against Miami. And with other cornerback Antonio Cromartie also battling injury, the Jets secondary could be in even more serious trouble.
