Miami Dolphins Cornerback Vonate Davis' Swagger Upsets Jets' Revis

Miami cornerback Vontae Davis declared the Dolphins' duo of Sean Smith and himself the best corner tandem in the NFL. The Jets' Darrelle Revis disagreed on Friday.

Yesterday, Miami Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis expressed his feelings that he and Sean Smith combine to form the best cornerback duo in the NFL.  Fans and media all agreed that Davis' bravado was a positive.  You expect that swagger from a cornerback.

Davis came out and stated, "I'm going to go out on a limb, and say we're the best tandem in the league.  That's what I am going to say.  You can name all of [the other tandems] across the league and I'll put it out there: We're the best tandem."

Well, not everyone supported Davis' proclamation.  

The New York Jets' Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis had to weigh in on the debate.  

"[Davis]'s got a couple more years before he's saying all that," Revis retorted yesterday to the New York Post.  "They're a good tandem, but they have a lot of work to do."

Somehow, the Jets' corner fails to realize that, two years ago, when he was being declared "Revis Island," he had been in the league exactly as long as Davis' has now - two years for each.  But that simple observation appears to be inconsequential.

"It really don't matter because the film don't lie," Revis continued - using himself and fellow Jets corner Antonio Cromartie.  "The film don't lie.  You can say what you want to say.  You can say the sky is red, but it ain't red.  That's just what it is.  We know how we play and we know what we do on that field not just as a corner tandem, but as a secondary.  We play great football."

Revis plays great football, unless you mean this:
