Revis: 'I'm the best defender in sports'
Darrelle Revis wasn't timid.
"I'm the best defender in all of sports," he said during his ESPN The Magazine photo shoot last week at the new Meadowlands stadium.
The New York Jets cornerback is receiving some serious attention heading into the season. He's on the most recent cover of The Sporting News, recently was revealed to have a perfect 99 score in "Madden 11" and is the subject of a lengthy feature in the latest issue ESPN The Magazine.
As part of ESPN's package, Revis shot a behind-the-scenes video.
"I like the competition, and I like the pressure of being a cornerback, of what we've got to do, day in and day out," Revis said. "I call it going against two guys instead of just the receiver. It's the quarterback and the receiver."
Revis answers several questions, including his toughest matchup (you might be surprised at the answer), his favorite Jets moment, the coolest number in his cell phone and favorite childhood memory.
