I still can't believe this forum is giving him a pass on his play. All of the Fox hate, Raheem the dream, PM choke threads but the biggest F'up was champ. Yet nobody here will hold him accountable for it. He's supposedly a first ballot HOF, one the best Broncos, and in the discussion for top 5 CB of all time. When the biggest game of his career approaches and the dude decides to wear a skirt.
I guess there are too many orange tinted glasses w/Champ's name on it on this forum.
Well, IMO it was a coaching mistake to have Champ playing the slot so much, and Tony Carter playing Champ's LCB position. Champ should have jammed the receiver when he was playing slot instead of giving him a free release to accelerate upfield. I don't think playing slot you want the receiver behind you right away, you want to change his direction in that first free five yards, but Champ isn't a slot cornerback.
