A feud that started last year with the Jet's Darelle Revis calling the Bengals' (at the time the Bills') Terrell Owens a "slouch," has evolved with Owens now calling Revis "just an average corner." We all know that Owens enjoys running his mouth, but in this case is he just spewing off or is he right?

Let's take a look at what it looks like to be stuck on Revis Island this year with an examination of what the primary receivers of New York opponents have accomplished. 

 

Week 1—Baltimore Ravens: Anquan Boldin

7 REC, 110 YDS, 0 TD

 

Week 2—New England Patriots: Randy Moss

2 REC, 38 YDS, 1 TD

 

Week 3 & Week 4 Revis sat out with his hamstring injury.

 

Week 5—Minnesota Vikings: Percy Harvin

5 REC, 97 YDS, 2 TD

 

Week 6—Denver Broncos: Brandon Lloyd

4 REC, 74 YDS, 0 TD

 

Week 7 was the Jets' bye week. 

 

Week 8—Green Bay Packers: Greg Jennings

6 REC, 81 YDS, 0 TD

 

Week 9—Detroit Lions: Calvin Johnson

1 REC, 13 YDS, 0 TD

 

Week 10—Cleveland Browns: Mohamed Massaquoi

2 REC, 8 YDS, 1 TD

 

Week 11—Houston Texans: Andre Johnson

4 REC, 32 YDS, 0 TD

 

Totals: 31 REC, 452 YDS, 4 TD

Overall, based on the stats alone, Revis has been just that, an average corner. He also has no interceptions this year.

However, stats don't tell the whole story. Revis didn't necessarily cover these guys on every reception, and the pass rush can have a big influence on the other teams passing attack.

Either way, an interesting look.
