Revis is 'shutdown savior'
To put it another way: The gap between Revis and the next best cornerback is far bigger than at any other position in the league. At safety, Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu are past their apex. The identity of the best pass rusher in the league changes every year. No interior defensive lineman consistently dominates, either.
Revis is the lone shutdown cornerback in a league where few players can match up against the opposition's best.
It's hard for any cornerback to make an impact comparable to quarterbacks like Rodgers and Brady. But Revis is dominating his position like no one since Deion Sanders.
