All offseason long, we've had to listen to various players brag about how they're the best cornerback in the game. Patrick Peterson has said it. So has Richard Sherman and DeAngelo Hall and Brandon Flowers and probably scores more I'm forgetting.

Oh, and Darrelle Revis most likely thinks the same thing.

But this week, as the Eagles have practiced with the Patriots, reports from the joint practices show that Philadelphia receiver Jeremy Maclin has gotten the better of Revis.

Revis was whistled for three holding penalties against Maclin on Tuesday and Maclin beat him for a touchdown, and on Wednesday, this happened.

Of course, that begs the question: does Revis care? After all, it's still in the middle of the preseason, and one man's success during practice won't mean much of anything once the regular season begins.

Maclin is coming off an ACL tear, so the news of his success from the joint practices likely means more to the Eagles.

But Maclin also came off the field during practice Wednesday, because it was raining and the fields were wet. He held an ice pack on his knee, and he told reporters he left practice because of his hamstring.
