Revis was quite good, fantastic at his best. Yet I've watched others that I rate above Revis-
Champ Bailey - 12 Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 52 career interceptions, four returned for touchdowns
Mel Renfro - 10 Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro one time, 52 career interceptions
Darrell Green - seven Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro one time, Recorded 54 career interceptions
Aeneas Williams - eight Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 55 career interceptions
Mel Blount - five Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro two times, 57 career interceptions
Charles Woodson - nine Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 65 career interceptions (tied for fifth all-time) and returned 11 of those for touchdowns (tied for second all-time)
Mike Haynes - nine Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro two times, 46 career interceptions
Rod Woodson - 11 Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro six times, 71 career interceptions, which ranks No. 3 on the all-time list
Deion Sanders - eight Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro six times, 53 career interceptions and returned nine of those for touchdowns, which ranks tied for fourth all-time
I might eventually even put Richard Sherman above him too.
Richard Sherman - four Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 30 career interceptions thus far.
Darrelle Revis - seven Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro four times, 29 career interceptions
I think Revis eventually gets into HOF, but his lack of INT's will possibly delay it to 2nd or 3rd ballot.
Again, I’ll start by saying I agree the AFCS wasn’t strong from 2012-14. That said, aside from the Pats, only 1 team in the AFCE had a winning record during that time-the Bills went 9-7 in 14. The best finish aside from that was 8-8. Neither division was strong and the Pats were a better team than the Colts over that span.
Point is, a weak division isn’t the main argument against a team being good or bad. Based on roster, Luck leading the Colts to multiple playoff wins in that period speaks to his potential. We’ll see how he looks this year. I’m cautiously optimistic.
