Darrelle Revis can imagine a situation where the read option works at the NFL level.
“Yeah, if you have Michael Vick and Chris Johnson at running back,” Revis said Tuesday via the New York Daily News. “Yeah, it can work. Those are probably the two fastest guys that can get out on the edge.”
Right. Well, that’s not going to happen. What about with Tim Tebow running the show?
“No. Not for a whole season,” Revis said. “We know what they’re doing. And we feel comfortable in our game plan.”
Denver’s option-based run-first approach has been fascinating to watch evolve. No one seems to believe it can last long term, but for now no one really knows. It hasn’t been attempted at this level yet.
We’re going to learn a lot about the efficacy of the Broncos offense this week. If they can move the ball Thursday night, perhaps Revis will become a believer.
