Who had the better season?
2006 Champ Bailey:
Thrown at 35 times, allowed 4 receptions (almost 10% completion rate), defended 21 of those passes, tied for league lead with 10 INTS.
Also had 98 tackles (84 solo) for 3rd best on the team, trailing LB's Al Wilson (113) and Ian Gold (101).
Six of Champ's 10 INTS came inside the Broncos' 4-yard line, and 3 were inside the end zone.
If he would have had 1 more fumble recovery, he would have led the league in takeaways.
I don't know who Champ lined up against every game in 2006 as I can't find that info. I also don't know if he was always against the #1 (as Revis was/is) or if he only played one side of the field.
2009 Revis, or as Rex Ryan says: "the greatest season ever by a corner" and "meant more to our defense than Ed Reed or Ray Lewis ever did":
