Default The Official, I can't believe there's not a Porter thread yet......Slackers.

And that's all I have to say about that..... what a spectacular off season pick up. It's a b**** to play opposite Champ and damn it, he kicked ass....

He is the best #2 CB in Denver since Chicken was opposite Ray Crockett

He was never cornerback opposite Ray Crocket.

Edit: Looks like they possibly both played cornerback in 1993.

This is a thread about PORTER. Please move along. He deserves it.

Really, get a clue. My post that was about Porter. Me saying Porter is the best #2 CB since Braxton is a bout Porter. Now when someone incorrectly says I am wrong I have to put it right. Now you need to move along this thread is about Porter and your post to me was in no way about Porter.

You mean Gordon. He was an excellent returner and a below average corner except for that great game in SB 33 and the season saving pass defensed against KC when we were on the revenge tour.

He drove me nuts a lot but showed up when it counted. And he does remind me of Porter.

Yeah you are right Gordon got burned a bit but he made tons of plays during the SB years. Porter is the best #2 CB since Gordon.

I have to give it to him...overall, he played a good game.

He still got beat a lot and he missed several open field tackles.

Having said that....it's nice to see a pick 6 by a DB from Denver!

no sense, by the end of the season we'll be SB champs and he'll be returning a pick 6 again.

Braxton was known as a great safety not a great CB and certainly not in the same context as his combination with Champ (based on this game). Either way, Porter kicked ass tonight. Even his helmet to helmet was complete BS. Given the circumstances, I don't know that he could have played a better game unless there was another pic 6.

As #2 CB opposite Champ, he's going to have some rough games eventually. That's how it is in the NFL now--even the best defenders get shredded occasionally in a pass happy league. But tonight illustrated that, after Manning, he might be the best FA pickup we've had in several years.

This. It's nice to have a player opposite Champ, in his first game with the team make some great plays. He was obviously not perfect but he stood out. His energy and ability to forget the bad plays lead to the clincher. With out less-than-adequate LB coverage, he had a huge job tonight and he did it well knowing it was coming at him. Big propps.
