Default Hines Ward on Darrelle Revis: 'He can be beaten'

By Sean Leahy, USA TODAY. Hines Ward may be the next receiver ticketed for Revis Island. But the Pittsburgh Steelers wideout has the confidence that he can muscle his way off of it.

Ward is likely to be matched up with New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis often during Sunday's AFC championship game.
Hines Ward

The two-time Super Bowl champion said that despite Revis' strong record of accomplishment, he's not intimidated.

"Can he be beaten? Yeah, he can be beaten," Ward said, via ESPN. "But at the same time he's one of those guys you don't want to mess with. If you make a mistake he's a game-changer.

"A lot of quarterbacks just stay a away from him. So as a wide receiver you can get frustrated, because you're not even getting looked at when he's covering you."

Ward had just two catches for 34 yards when the Jets beat the Steelers 22-17 in Week 15. He's part of a receiving corps that has several blossoming young players such as Emmanuel Sanders, Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown.

What's his philosophy when being matched against Revis?

"For me, I just have to stay focused and not get frustrated," Ward said. "It's not about Revis against me. It's Steelers vs. the Jets. So I have to go out there and work my tail off to get open.

"He's one of the best cornerbacks in our league. He's probably the best cornerback in our league. I look at it as a challenge."

Actually last game Revis started the game with the "all over the field" tactic, but the Steelers were having success moving the ball. Once he switched to just Hines, you could tell they were struggling a bit. If I were a Jets fan I'd want them to stick with what works the best.

Wallace creates all sorts of matchup problems...Reality is no team has a guy who can go stride for stride w/ him all game...there are going to be some deep safety zone coverages regardless.

Who's your best coverage LB? Is it Harris or Scott?

That spells trouble for Revis. Because guess who else will be all over the field? Wallace, Sanders, and Brown, all three of which are just as fast, if not faster than Revis on the field, suited up.

Brown and Sanders are both 4.5 guys and Wallace is just under 4.3 I think.

Cromartie is one of the most athletic CB's in the league, Drew Coleman shows flashes and our safeties have stepped it up big time...

I'm not concerned about getting burned vertically, because frankly it just doesn't happen to this team.

But I am concerned about that speed being utilized over the middle of the field in space...The Jets coverage has struggled there at times.

Yeah that's why I was asking who your best coverage LB's are. I think that's where we attack you guys is over the middle with Heath, Redman, Sanders.

cromartie is their fastest CB, if they match him with wallace and revis on hines we will have trouble moving the ball. the jets are a very good D overall. bens gonna have to rely heavily on his 3rd and 4th and even 5th reads
