Stanback not bragging about beating Bailey

Rookie WR Isaiah Stanback played down the fact that he toasted All-Pro CB Champ Bailey during 1-on-1 drills.

"He was guessing," Stanback said, explaining that the only reason he got open deep was because Bailey squatted in anticipation of a curl or crossing route.

Stanback is smart to be humble. The last thing a rookie who hasn't even played in a preseason game needs to do is brag about getting the best of a superstar. And Stanback readily admits that receivers have a big edge in 1-on-1 drills, with no pass rush or safety help.

Nevertheless, Bailey has built a Hall of Fame case in large part by squatting on routes and using his blazing speed to recover. To see Bailey fail to make up ground against a 6-2, 213-pound rookie was an eye opener.

Isaiah's gonna be a beast if he can make the move to wideout. I'd say he was one of the best all-around athletes in the draft, and unlike previous QB-to-WR's (Randle El), he actually has some serious upside as a wide receiver.

He'd be a nice project to have right now.

Jeez it's practice! Like he said, no pass rush, no safety help, and he's the only target. Game time situation Champ would shut him down completely.
