Vote Early, Vote Often … for Darrelle

Posted by Randy Lange on November 4, 2008 – 5:22 pm

CB Darrelle Revis has been placed on the ballot for his standout game at Buffalo.

The ballot in question is for GMC Sierra Defensive Player of the Week. Fans can vote for Revis or the other four finalists for this week — Atlanta DE John Abraham, Miami CB Will Allen, Tennessee S Chris Hope or Giants DE Justin Tuck — at NFL.com/gmc from now through Thursday at 4 p.m. EST. The winner will be announced Thursday night on NFL.com.

Head coach Eric Mangini, perhaps doing a little electioneering in advance if this week’s vote, said Revis’ emergence may be making life tough for the rookie usually on the right corner, Dwight Lowery.

"I think Darrelle is playing really well now," Mangini said, "and you make a choice each week where you want to place the ball and who you want to throw it against. That’s not going to be inconsistent, I think, moving forward, as long as Darrelle keeps playing at a high level, whoever is over there is going to get a lot of action."

The Jets could also be in line for some of the NFL’s weekly awards for AFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Player of the Week. We’ll have more on that Wednesday.

Marty on "Sack Exchange"

Rex asked a question on Monday of Marty Lyons about what it was like to play alongside Mark Gastineau, Joe Klecko and Abdul Salaam in "the New York Sack Exchange" in the early Eighties. Rather than replace my response with Marty’s after Rex’s comment, I thought everyone would be able to find Marty’s response better on today’s Radar entry. Here is what Marty has to say:

"Playing along side Mark, Joe and Abdul was exciting. Joe had a way of making everyone play to a different level. Mark had unbelievable speed to get to the quarterback. Abdul and I had to hold down the middle. But in any team concept, if we didn’t have the support of the other defensive players on the field, the front four wouldn’t had been as successful as we were."

    why jenkins is not on the list amazes me, he clearly dominated his position on sunday and changed the outcome of the game. CB’s and LB’s have the flashier jobs and not to take anything away from them but my Def player of the week is the 360 lb quiet giant who pressured, sacked and scared Edwards all game long. Hope he got the game ball.

    Revis is the best the #1 CB in the league.

    Jenkins should be the defensive player of the week!!! I love Revis, he is great….the best…TY LAW like!!!

  4. By Jimmy on Nov 4, 2008 | Reply

    I concur wholeheartedly with Ira!!! Revis is #1!

    Randy,..Do we have Jenkins under contract for any length? I sure hope so,..he is an animal and the leader of our defense. Do you also think KGB from the packers would be a good fit here(3rd downer)?

    Abraham,thankyou for helping us get one of the best centers in football.Although he plays great,if Atlanta was playing for a playoff spot or in the playoffs he would be hurt.If not hurt,he will be sick or just not play because he has no contract.I did cartwheels when we traded him.Revis is GREAT.Liked Mangini’s analysis on Lowery struggling a bit.It makes sense.

    Have a good trip with your son, Howard. Feel free to pass on any observations on the Hall upon your return.

    The D really showed up this week and took a huge step forward. While the O played alright Brett took a step back. Can he go one game without a huge mistake. We take the good with the bad as fans but come on now O more good and this can be a run in the second half. Lets reallt try to get the run going so Brett can feel less pressure to make big throws. He can make the ones we need to win.

    Do we want DeAngelo Hall?I don’t think we need him.I think it would brake up a little chemistry and momentum that we have.Plus I don’t think we can aford him.But didn’t Raiders trade a second round pick(which was high second round)for him?What did he do to get waived?And the Raiders players are lobbying to get Vick.Now thats a BAD ORGANIZATION!We complain about #56,look at DeMarcus Russel!

    Revis is a stud… He has become as close to a lockdown corner as i have ever seen for this franchise. what a great draft we had (3 out of 4 aint bad)with Revis, Harris and Stuckey….It’s funny that he plays like Ty Law. Hey Randy….Didnt Ty Law and him have a relationship as they are from the same area in Penn?

    I agree with Ira & Jimmy, Revis has turned into one of the best if not the best cover corners in the league….what a great draft choice….However I am a little disappointed that Jenks was not nominated for defensive player of the week…2 sacks, and a pressure that caused the 92 yd int from elam, and also dominance on the line and run stuffing…but hey he was named to PFW midseason all pro team

    Hey Randy,at the halfway point of the regular season and everyone handing out MVPs to this one and that one.Lost is the fact that we wouldn’t be able to argue any of these points without the undeniable MVP MR.RANDY LANGE.Thanks again for you and your crews OUTSTANDING coverage.Sometimes I check other team sites,NO ONE has it like us!

    Any chance the Jets can sign Dante Hall? With Reivis those two would instantly improve the secondary

    Randy: I believe the Jets/Bills game is on NFL Replay tonight at 8pm.

    Brian I, keep in mind that the GMC Sierra award is a sponsored NFL award. Kris Jenkins was named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week today, as I mentioned in my just-posted midday Radar entry.

  17. By Randy Lange on Nov 5, 2008 | Reply

    Yes, Drew, Darrelle Revis and Ty Law are both from Aliquippa, Pa. We understand they’re friends and Revis wears No. 24 because that was Law’s number.

    You’re too kind, uncle joe. By the way, I really do have a guy in my family I call Uncle Joe. You’re not him, are you?

    Randy just got back to the hotel my son and i love the hall,many fantastic mementos.i’ve been watching this game a long time and some of the memories that come back,and explaining things to a 14 yr old,cetain plays from yrs gone by what a great day we had tomorrow its clevland and the rock @roll hof then home

    Don’t even think about mentioning Hall, and it’s Deangelo by the way. He is a joke of a zone corner who couldn’t play any man coverage. He also got a kick out of making stupid penalties which lead to his release. Miller must dress, must play immediately. Also, remember if Coleman didn’t get beat, Elam wouldn’t be playing b/c that hit Smith made would not have happened. Go Jets

    Well Said Marty Lions-You always were and always will be a real class act-

  24. By Ray on Nov 6, 2008 | Reply

    uncle joe, this may answer you question as to why Hall was released, it is from NFL.com. “In his eight games in Oakland, Hall was beaten 40 times for 552 yards on 66 passes thrown his way, according to data compiled by STATS LLC. He gave up more yards than any defender this season and was tied for third worst in catches allowed.” Doesn’t sound like an upgrade over what we already have.
