Foxworth for starter?

I've been a fan of Foxy since he entered the league, and not only because he's a high-character guy. He plays smart, he lays it out on the field, and he rises to the occasion, or so it seems to me. It has also seemed to me that many people have underestimated him, figuring him for trade bait, noting that he's been passed up by Paymah, pretty much consigning him to permanent nicke or dime-back status. Hence my pleasure and excitement at seeing the last section of Mike Klis's article on D-Will:
Foxworth for starter?

And finally in this all-D-Will column, there is his right cornerback position. Dre Bly came in and filled it last year and he's still going to get paid big money this year. But one of the passing-camp observations last week was that Domonique Foxworth, Williams' draft classmate and closest friend among current Broncos, was playing extremely well and is pushing Bly for the starting position.

It's too early to tell how this will turn out, but if he's pushing Bly he's not just playing well for a young player. He's playing well, period. He and Darrent were both precocious, and he played well when Darrent was hurt. I think the fact that he was just a little behind Darrent made people not realize how good he was. If he takes the job away from Bly it can only help us in run support. The reason we've used Foxy at safety, even though it's not his position, is he's a good tackler, and Bly isn't. (That's why he was so unsuited for the cover 2 in Detroit.) I actually thought he would push Bly last year, and was surprised when Paymah seemed to have passed him. Maybe that was a temporary hiccough, and he's now back on track to being as good as we thought he was going to be when he and Darrent showed so much promise that first year. What do y'all think?
