The Broncos have a chance to do something special on Sunday and that message was driven home by a member of the team who knows how rarely chances at a Super Bowl can come along.
Cornerback Champ Bailey is playing in his first Super Bowl after 15 seasons in the NFL, something that was a frequent topic of questions sent Bailey’s way during Super Bowl week media availabilities. In response to one of those questions, Bailey said a win on Sunday would be the greatest accomplishment of his career and he got a chance to share how much that would mean with his teammates.
Sal Paolantonio of ESPN reports that Bailey was chosen to address his team ahead of the Super Bowl. According to Paolantonio, Bailey’s message was to “make the game bigger than yourself.”
Peyton Manning did it before the divisional round and Wes Welker handled the duties before the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots, leaving Bailey as a natural choice before he tries for his first ring.
