Darrelle Revis wasn't his typical dominating self in the Jets' win over the Broncos Sunday, but Rex Ryan didn't care. Ryan chose to start his All-Pro cornerback rather than give him additional time to rest his ailing left hamstring.
"I'll take the criticism," Ryan said. "We're in the win business. I never felt - after talking to the medical people - that Darrelle could further the injury. And that's why we played the guy."
The Broncos tested Revis early and often. He was beaten several times by Jabar Gaffney, but Ryan maintained that "90% of Darrelle Revis is still pretty impressive."
Although Revis admitted after the game that "I don't feel 100%," he said he felt good enough in pregame warmups to tell Ryan that he was ready to go. Revis said he played all but a handful of snaps.
