Champ Bailey: The Numbers, The Tape, The Verdict

The New Orleans Saints have had a better offseason than most NFL teams. Adding Jairus Byrd, retaining Jimmy Graham and signing Champ Bailey should go a long way to aiding their push for a place in the Super Bowl. Bailey is the least celebrated of those three moves, in spite of his status as a future hall-of-fame player.

In 2012, Bailey was still a high-quality starter, but he struggled in 2013. Projecting forward, it's important to understand exactly why Bailey struggled in 2013.

Thanks for the analysis, but your gifs are too low quality to follow. I assume this was done for bandwidth reasons. You should check out http://gfycat.com/about as a tool if you're concerned about 5MB gifs.

Hell, I'd love to be able to follow this series, but the site keeps crashing the browser on my tablets. I think the problems are deeper than low quality gifs.
