Revis: Jets' DBs can't sleep on Tim Tebow
By James Walker
New York Jets Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis doesn't seem too excited to play against the Denver Broncos and quarterback Tim Tebow Thursday night.
"We can't fall asleep back there in the secondary," said Revis Tuesday, according to ESPNNewYork.com. "It can get boring, especially when a team just keeps running the ball, series after series, play after play."
After reviewing the tape, Revis knows he won't get much action this week. Denver ran the football 55 times with its "T-bone" offense. Tebow had nine carries himself for 43 yards and a touchdown.
The Broncos threw the football just eight times and beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 17-10. Tebow was 2-for-8 for 69 yards. But his best throw was a 56-yard touchdown to Broncos receiver Eric Decker after Kansas City's secondary stopped worrying about the pass.
As Revis warned, New York's secondary can't get caught napping this week when Tebow decides to throw.
