Champ Bailey addresses Broncos before Super Bowl


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.

    I think the name says it all.

    Win this one for champ, then use the tears of richard sherman as the diamonds in the ring.

    I really like Champ Bailey, but it’s going to take more than a rah-rah speech to beat the Seahawks. If not for Peyton Manning, who I detest, the Broncos would actually be likeable. Even having said that, I still think the Seahawks will be claiming their first Lombardi later today. Go Hawks!

    Maybe if the broncos had a real coach he’d be the one addressing the team.

    Go Broncos, but really go all these wings, ribs and beer! I’m starting now.

    Warren Sapp said it best: “Toughness is something that is ingrained inside of you. It’s not something that’s learned in a week before you travel for a football game.”

    The Donkeys are soft.

    I’d MUCH rather see Champ graciously be thankful to his teammates and fans than watch She-man hysterics about how great he is.

    Gosh it’s a shame such a great player had to wait so long for his big chance only to see it crushed by the Seahawks.

    Gosh, it’s so sad to see that the Seahawks have never ever won a Super Bowl in all of their existence.
    It has got to be depressing that it won,t happen today or any time soon. Probably Never.

    Champ Bailey is the definition of class, Richard Sherman, well, not so much

    RW has wpn 75% pf hoslayoff games.

    Manning? 50%

    Just saying.

    As can be seen from these comments, Champ and the Broncos need to teach the Seahawks and their fans some manners.

    It would be awesome to see Champ retire a Champ along with Peyton capping his historic season as the only QB to win the Superbowl with 2 teams.

    Seattle has never won so that would be cool too.

    That said, I am highly suspicious of the outcome considering the NFL sent tapes of both teams to the refs to study. Same as the NFCCG with instructions to “set the tone early” than apologizing for wrong calls on Monday.

    May the best team win with the final score contributed to the playmakers and not poor officiating.

    The packers fans are fat and the shehawks are useless.

    For all of the match ups talk headed into this game, the MOST important one will be at the line of scrimmage. Simply put, if CLARK, BEADLES, RAMIREZ, VASQUEZ and FRANKLIN can give Manning 3.5 seconds to get rid of the football GAME OVER. He usually needs under 3 but Im allowing for the Seattle press at the line. Those 5 will determine the winner. We’ve faced the #5 and #7 offenses in the last two games and HELD them under 17 points. We should be just FINE against the #17 (Seattle) offense.

    I just don’t see Percy Harvin as good as he is making the #17 all of a sudden a TOP 10 offense.

    Would be a great game either way!

    League wants Manning.

    I suspect Hawks will have to beat Denver and the refs.

    Seahawk fans sure talk a lot for being Super Bowl virgins…

    A seahawk isn’t even an animal

  21. somethingsmellsrotten says: Feb 2, 2014 4:17 PM

    He will be retiring without a ring…sorry Chump.

  22. castleanthrax says: Feb 2, 2014 6:51 PM

    The only reason I wouldn’t mind Donkeys winning.

    Boy it’s amusing to come in and read this thread the day after….
