Champ Bailey Deserves A Super Bowl Ring

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Those of us in Broncos Country, and many outside of, believe that Champ Bailey is a sure fire Hall of Famer. With his stats and accolades, who could deny it?

As a Denver Bronco, Champ has been to the Pro Bowl a whopping 8 times and has been named All-Pro 5 times, including 2012, by the way.

Because of his game vs the Ravens in last year's Divisional Round playoff loss, many, even in Broncos Country, lost sight of the fact that Champ had a dominant 2012 campaign.

But Champ has been denied the ultimate glory. He's never been to the Super Bowl, let alone won one. And some people in the football world believe that this glaring omission on his resume could lead HoF voters to keep him on the back burner, or flat out overlook him.

It's an egregious notion. Other than Deion Sanders and maybe Darrell Green, the NFL has never seen a cornerback who sustained such a high level of play for so long. Champ is one of the best all time.

As gratifying as it would be to see Peyton Manning win a Super Bowl as a Bronco and exorcise all of his personal demons, it would be even more so for Champ.

He almost got to a Super Bowl in 2005, but Jake Plummer decided to have one of his worst games as a pro that day and we screwed the pooch. At home. We would have beat the Seahawks, had we advanced. Of this, I have no doubt.

But here's to hoping the Denver Broncos demolish the New England Patriots on Sunday and advance to the Super Bowl, where at least Champ would get the opportunity to play in and Football Gods willing, win a world title.
