Good Woody article about Chris Harris
Between plays of the Broncos-Chargers game last November in San Diego, Chris Harris crossed paths with notorious garbage-gabber Philip Rivers.
"I didn't think he had any idea who I was," a grinning Harris told me during the offseason.
"Then he yelled at me, 'Go back to Arkansas, you (reeking) rookie.' Then I was sure he didn't know who I was."
Harris grew up in Oklahoma and played college football at Kansas. Rivers obviously didn't think the Broncos' nickel back was worth two bits.
With 2:05 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Broncos-Chargers game this year in San Diego, the Broncos, after a mercurial comeback, were clinging to a precarious 28-24 lead when Harris intercepted a Rivers pass and returned the ball 46 yards for the clinching touchdown.
Harris picked off Rivers twice — each time right in front of former Broncos teammate Eddie Royal — in the fourth quarter.
Rivers presumably knows who Harris is now.
Since the second half of that earlier confrontation, Harris and the Broncos have been riding high, and Rivers and the Chargers barely are hanging on. The two meet Sunday.
Mr. Rivers, say hello again to Mr. Harris.
The Broncos have won four straight with Harris as a starter at cornerback in place of Tracy Porter and across from Champ Bailey. During that stretch, Harris has the two interceptions, one sack, 16 tackles and five deflected passes.
