Champ the best. Champ one of the best.

Has anyone else noticed this besides me. When Champ was a Redskin he was called one of the best CBs in the league.
Now that he's a Bronco he is called the best CB in the league. Way is he now the best just because he has a new address.

Don't get me wrong I think he's very good. Although last year was not a banner year for him.

Anyway just wondered if anyone noticed this.

Champ is one of the best CBs in the league. And I take it that he's the highest paid as well. He's got great one on one cover skills, he's durable, and he understands the game well. He just wanted more money than we were gonna pay. I have no grudge there, though I think he's missing out on something great. Still, Denver's a good team and in the hunt. But I'm gonna stop writing about Champ now: he's not a Redskin.

I always heard that he was arguably the best corner even when he was here. it was either him or charles woodson, and woodson has kinda become less known as of late.

Let's, see there's Champ, Ronde Barber, and Ty Law…everyone else is a notch below.

i don't know why they have champ at WR... he's fast, but we used him as a return guy, and wow, that was a mistake... man has bad hands.

I thnk with the way Smoot played last year and obviously thru preseason and the 1st game this year, you might want to elevate him to that level also. I seem to recall Champ doing the alay last year and letting Tiki Barber walk into the endzone. That just sticks in my mind as a great reason why Champ had to go. Last night that was a beauty of a interception though.

saden is missing patrick surtain on the list.


the one thing that pissed me off while watching the denver game was the comparisons between portis and griffin.

portis played against one of the better defences in the league. griffin played against one of the worst. i want to see griffin play a good team that has a good Dline and linebackers.

I don't doubt Griffin will have a monster year behind that offensive line. He's as shifty and makes unbelievable cuts, but I think Portis is better cuz:

1. He's faster
2. He's a better blocker and blitz picker-upper
3. Has an infectiously positive locker room + sideline presence (QG may develop this in time too, but hasn't yet).

His name doesn't hurt when it comes to the overall marketing of Champ as a CB.
If his name was Herbert, I think he'd be considered "one of the best".
Sorry, no offense to guys named Herbert.

Yes, Anti-Redskins bias.....but the Redskins have gotten a lot of POSITIVE press with Gibb's return........During Dallas week I'm sure the national media will drool all about Parcells...........It's funny the Cowboys don't even have a player to brag about so when they preview the Boyz game it's (opponent) meets Bill Parcells and the Cowboys..... Yes, the Redskins have Gibbs but we have a lot of talent---Arrington, Portis, Coles, Burnell.......
