This might be Champ last year in Denver. Hopefully it ends with a Super Bowl.

I just hope Broncos win it all this year so he can retire a champion because Father Time is very unforgiving when he decides to mandate the erosion of skills.
I'm still holding out hope that he'll want to move over to safety.

Would you want Champ to play over Nacho or The Dream?

I would love for Champ to come back playing all over the place. Sometimes at Safety. Sometimes as a third CB. When rested he's still a #1 CB in key situations. He's smart, versatile and I trust him tackling.


It just amazes me how it seems that everyone (outside the bronco realm) seems to have forgotten that we still have him on the shelf. Can't wait until we unleash a rested Champ with this improved backfield. We all ain't seen nothing yet!

Tony Carter who is oft-maligned on here leads the NFL with 8 pass break-ups on a team that has 26.

Your young CBs are pretty damn good. Honestly, I thiink Denver's defense is better with them starting.
We'll see. I could certainly see a scenario where if his injuries have caused a further decline in speed and change of direction that JDR will start using him as more of a Big Nickel and to take advantage of his outstanding tackling ability in space. Maybe start using him to bring pressure from the edge in exotic blitz packages. I think we're all curious to see how he recovers.
