also, I think he is going the be the highest Bronco, as all the other players with any shot in the top 100 have already been picked. Blows we don't have a single top 20 player considering Manning and possibly even Bailey despite his slowing down.

Miller and Manning are too low. Dumervil was about right.

Tebow on the list makes it a joke.

so the 100 million dollar Manning is only the 50th best player in the NFL. Right!

if you divide 100 by 32 you get an average of 3 players per team. we have 5 that's pretty good.

I think a lot of the voters forgot this is a prediction show. They are supposed to vote for who they think will be the best in 2012(this season).

Future HOF...CHAMP BAILEY

I remember during the 1999 NFL Draft, I read a lot of pre-draft stuff about this CB from Georgia who was claimed to be the next Deion Sanders. He could run, he could tackle, he could cover like crazy, and did some work at WR too. Fell in love with him, and made him my favorite player in the NFL, and collected his sports cards. Drafted by the Redskins, I followed him with them, and watched as he became an amazing CB.
Then, he was going to be a free agent soon. I was thinking "Man, it would be awesome if the Broncos got him. My favorite player, on my favorite team."
Then, the trade rumors came out. Portis for Champ. I was shocked and amazed, and then it finally happened. I loved it.
I think back to 1999 when I went around looking for Champ Bailey cards/stuff, and 13 years later, he's a lock for the HOF. Amazing to think about it for me.

One of my favorite plays of all time was his interception of Brady in the 2005 playoffs. If only he had enough gas to not get drilled by Watson and score the TD.
My favorite play of his was the one that sparked that season though in 2005. Broncos got killed in the opener in Miami, and were losing I believe 17-3 or 14-3 to the Chargers at half time the next game. The fans started to boo, it looked like it could be an ugly year. Then Brees drops back to pass, fires to the left and Champ, on a bum shoulder and all, reads it and picks the pass off cleanly and takes it in for a touchdown. I was at that game, and the stadium absolutely LIT UP once that happened, and from then on out it was LOUD.
