You have to wonder if the Denver Broncos executive VP of football operations is just going through the motions taking time to talk to Notre Dames Manti Te’o. The Broncos do need some defensive help without question. The first place Elway and the Broncos should focus on is getting a great corner back that will stop the big plays from taking place. It was the Broncos secondary that left the Broncos vulnerable  in the NFL play-offs. The Broncos defensive secondary gave up far too many big plays to the Ravens.

There is no question that Elway is a great VP of football operations and he knows the game. He has to realize the Broncos need help in their defensive secondary. I think Elway wants to satisfy his curiosity about Te’o more than anything. Te’o has been plagued with questions about the hoax more than anything else at this NFL combine. Elway could be trying to get a feel as to how Te’o would react in the NFL. The last thing the Denver Broncos need is to have a guy on the team that would get Tebow type publicity again. Elway has already lived through that kind of circus once. He doesn’t need that again.

    The Broncos have Chris Harris who has had 4 picks in two years as an udrafted free agent, and they have THECHAMP who may have lost a step but is still a top 3 corner, and DOOMnGLOOM on the outside rush. Manti Teo would be a great addition to a rushing defense that was weaker than the pass defense. And finally the fact that champ got burned more than once is guess what a coaching mistake from the all-stars del rio and fox then the third time he had help and Rahim Moore blew his coverage. So yeah lets get some new corners cuz champ isnt able to cover only the fastest receivers deep and our coaches didnt have competent help to give him when they finally decided to. I say get some better deep help and run stopping and leave the best corner tandem in the nfl alone.

      Didn’t Champ get beat a time or two in the play off game?

    Secondary… yes.. but specifically it was Champ who got torched for almost 3 TD’s against the Ravens and it seems every sports columnist out there is afraid to call it as it is. This isn’t news… Champ has been showing signs of slowing down for a while now and he just really got exposed in the playoffs. I love Champ and have been a Bronco fan since the Craig Morton days but the truth is the truth. Champ has become a liability against the elite teams that throw the ball deep. It’s time to move him to safety and find a shut down corner who has the ability to defend against deep plays . Every team in the NFL is going to look at what the Ravens did and know they can attack him now. I’m sorry but in my humble opinion It’s time for a change.
