Either you didn't read the link you provided or you don't understand what a refusal is or how it works.

Champ to Safety talk is nonsense.


He'll be playing part-time at Nickel CB for the Broncos until he retires or is cut. In all likelihood, that'll be after the season is over. If we're lucky, Champ will be healthy enough to play next season, and be willing to take a massive pay-cut.

In any case, he doesn't have much time left. The next game could be his last.

5 years. Lovie will make them respectable. Not much more than that, though.

Only if they can't find a QB.
The D is set, Marinelli is coming in as DC. The running game and OL is good to go and they have a good WR in Jackson. Now you need a franchise QB and they will be a super bowl contender in 2 seasons.

MIKE NOLAN asked champ to consider a move to safety when he was in DC and when he came to denver. champ refused both times.

Maybe because champ was in the midst of his prime and the top corner in the NFL? And great corners are more valuable than great safeties? I don't know where you get this supposed "information," but there's no way Nolan asks the top corner in the NFL to switch to safety full time unless he's a complete idiot. If he did, then Champ had every reason to laugh in his face.

Not sure why you think that. Lovie is a good coach who has done well considering he's never had anything better than mediocre and bad QBs.

Nolan saw that as a corner, champ could just be avoided, but as a safety he could dictate his own matchups and defend the deep field and have a greater impact on the overall defense than just following a decoy to the bathroom because no QB was going to throw in his diorection. NOLAN saw champ as a super ED REED, great instincts, savvy and ball skills as well as text-book tackling.

What's hilarious is Nolan just did the EXACT same thing he's done basically every year as a DC or HC and people keep rewarding him for it.

His defense starts of year strong
Teams get film on him and then his defenses promptly suck in November and December
He signs a big extension or leaves and signs with some other dumb team

(Atlanta had yet another top 10 D early on the season and ended the season ranked 27th.)

There is a big difference between a reporter asking a hypothetical question "Are you moving to safety?" and a coach telling a player "You are moving to safety." It's the difference between your buddy asking if you are working late on Friday and your boss telling you to. Telling your friend that you aren't working overtime is not the same thing as refusing your boss' order. See what I mean?


Edit:Am I using boss' correctly? Should it be "bosses"?
