Am I the only one concerned about Champ?
 
Unless I have missed something, the front office has been eerily quiet about Champ's injury and prognosis for recovery. Foot sprains can linger all season long (cue the lisfranc thread). Do they still have him listed as Questionable for a week 1 start?

08-27-2013 01:21 PM

I heard he rubbed some dirt on it.

Eldorado 08-27-2013 01:24 PM

Yup

08-27-2013 01:31 PM

Yeah, I'm concerned about it too. Considering he's still in a boot I find it highly unlikely that he plays week one. He needs all the rest he can get...we need him healthy for a playoff run

Durango 08-27-2013 01:32 PM

I heard John Fox say Champ is 'hopeful' for game 1 of the regular season. Look, they X-rayed it, MRI'd it, the only thing they didn't do was hold it up the to night sky and chant to the gods, and there was no structural damage.

It's a strain. If anyone here has ever strained their arch, you know how painful that can be, but it eases up like any muscle strain, and I bet Champ is back full strength very soon. Maybe not game 1, but soon.

I am more worried about his age than his foot. He's 35 and we started to see some chinks in the armor last season. He still has some left to give, but I am not sure the front office will be jazzed about his 9 million dollar contract next season.

Kaylore come on now we say that stuff these days. LOL :poke:

BroncoMan4ever 08-27-2013 02:15 PM

i am all for letting him sit for the 1st week or 2 of the season. rather miss him early instead of in the playoffs.

I expect better from you. He had a bad game.

Again I will reinterate how several years ago Bowe had

a great game on Champ and this whole board said he was

done and over the hill. Well guess what.....next game against Bowe

Champ shut him out..........all you heard around these parts was

crickets. You don't get over the hill all at once.

Champ will be champ once again...................

Gutless Drunk 08-27-2013 03:15 PM

Need to put DRC on Torrey Smith. Time to realize Champs limitations.

I'd even say take first 4 games and have him 100 percent for 12. The one thing I don't want to see is him at 80 percent out there with Torrey Smith on an island.

DRC is a good fit for that coverage too. Smith doesn't have great quick moves, he's more just straight ahead speed. That's DRC's strength as well. No doubt I would use DRC on Smith game 1.

It tends to happen two ways: gradually and then suddenly.

I think you'd be surprised at just how suddenly it can happen. You reach the top of that hill and it only takes the slightest push and you're accelerating down it.

I would argue that he's already done incredibly well to play at the level he has at DB for as long as he has.

Punisher 08-27-2013 04:08 PM

By all means i want Champ to make a speedy recovery, but the guy isn't even the Best CB in the team. If he doesn't make it to week one it's not a problem.

colorado jones 08-27-2013 04:22 PM

It's not a secret that Champ has gone from best defensive player in the NFL to just really good and not great.

he still is having nightmares after he was raped last year up and down the field for the world to see.

errand 08-27-2013 06:39 PM

I think Chris Harris has become as good as Champ has been the past couple of seasons....but he's certainly not where Champ use to be when he was the best defender in the NFL.....good thing we've got a plethora of good DB's.

Old Dude 08-27-2013 07:10 PM

One of these days, he's going to switch to safety. Maybe this year, maybe not.

yeah, he's probably going to surprise switch to safety right before the regular seasons starts. the team has been keeping it a secret because oh wait you're an idiot

their gene pool and quit diving into the shallow end.........ok ?

How about now?

TonyR 10-03-2013 10:15 AM

It is odd that they've basically been saying for four weeks now that he's almost ready. So he's either not progressing as they keep expecting or they're lying. Since I see no reason for the latter, one would assume it's the former.

At this point I wouldn't expect we'll see him until after the bye. But if he misses the whole year, or comes back and doesn't make it through a game, I won't be surprised.

Smiling Assassin27 10-03-2013 10:23 AM

We have the luxury of not having to rush him back. So let's not. Season don't start til January for us.
