  • Sporting News: Broncos No. 1

    Sporting News: Broncos are champs at corner:
    http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn...c.php?t=215714

    1. Broncos. Dre' Bly gives the team another ballhawking man-to-man defender to pair with seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey. Nickel back Domonique Foxworth has the top-end speed to match up with slot receivers.

    2. Raiders. Nnamdi Asomugha and Fabian Washington excel in one-on-one coverage and have above-average speed, great instincts and solid tackling skills. Nickel back Stanford Routt has blazing speed but gets beat too often.

    3. Ravens. Chris McAlister has the strength and speed to match up with any receiver. Samari Rolle struggled last season but still is savvy. Backups Ronnie Prude and Evan Oglesby lack experience.

    4. Patriots. If potential holdout Asante Samuel returns, he and Ellis Hobbs will form a solid duo. Hobbs has the ball skills and temperament to be a No. 1 corner. If Samuel leaves, Eugene Wilson could move from safety to corner, his college position.

    5. Jaguars. Rashean Mathis and Brian Williams have solid man-to-man coverage skills, are physical jamming receivers and are fearless in run support. Nickel back Terry Cousin (5-9, 185) lacks ideal size but is a savvy veteran who makes plays.

    Its a given. No other tandem has the skill that the broncos have. If you watched sportscenter the other day John Clayton did his "Inside the Huddle" and said Champ thinks he can get a record amount of INT's next year with Dre Bly now on the team.

      I love this comment from the article:

      Champ Bailey, Broncos. There's Bailey -- and there's the rest of the cornerbacks. He has the whole package: size, quickness, recovery speed, ball skills. On top of that, he's the best run-stopping corner in the NFL.

        Why did you stop at 5......

        6. Chargers. Quentin Jammer has become a shutdown force and is an excellent tackler. Drayton Florence is fast and would be among the league's best if he were more consistent. Antonio Cromartie needs experience.

          The Raiders at #2?



          Are they serious? I mean, they may have improved, but up to #2? REally?

                  bolt fan, jammer is not a shutdown corner, he is good, but not great.
                  So far:
                  FA- Melvin Gordon. Brandon Scherff
                  1. Kenneth Murray LB; 2. Shenault WR; 2B. Biadazz Center, 3. OT

                    I agree with this except for the Pats at #4. I think they are rated #4 with LB corps but not CB

                      Great info DTown.I havent ever really seen much of Bly,or heard of him until he came to Denver.I hope Bly is good as what people say he is cause we could use another cover corner thats similar to Bailey.The corner position could help our defense a lot.All it takes is one more playmaker to add to an already good defense to be great.I hope Bly really answers up to the Hype.

                        Your opinion....

                        But he is getting more and more respect every year....

                        He does not gamble and get the picks......but is always solid...

                            Bailey is not the best run defender at corner in the league, I'm sorry - but watching Antoine Winfield in a Minnesota has been a blessing. Pound for pound, the most sound tackler in the game, regardless of position. Bailey would be second, but Winfield is better at tackling.
