Default Should Champ Move To Saftey in 2014 if Asked?

He's still the Champ. I am not sure why Broncos fans have a problem with cornerback Champ Bailey's play last season. Yeah, he had some problems in the playoff loss to Baltimore, but Bailey also didn't have a lot of help over the top in that game. People are so used to Bailey completely shutting down every receiver that when he lets a play slip, folks think the world is ending. He is slowing down, but Bailey is still better than 90 percent of the cornerbacks in the league. So get off his back.

Kiz: Bailey did stink against the Ravens. But, in my book, he is way more Champ than chump. The issue is not whether Bailey will play well at cornerback this season. Count on another invitation to the Pro Bowl. This issue will be Bailey's reaction if the Broncos ask him to move to safety in 2014.

If the Broncos ask him to move to safety ( in 2014) it will be because he can help the team more there , than at CB. And that means that we have someone that can take the CB role and fulfill it better ( reasons for this can be multiple...Champ getting older and unable to keep up with WRs for one, or finding a different player with similar or better skill set, or simply needing him to fill a safety spot because we are weaker there and have adequate CBs to take over his position there).

While he is still a very good CB he is getting paid very well, and he must realize that he can't keep that job much longer, especially at his pay . The Broncos will not ask him to move just to cut his pay, although that would be a part of it. He has been a good teammate, but refusing a requested move to a position that would extend his career would not be, and would shorten his time here. 2014 is AFTER this coming season, and should not be unexpected, especially if he declines in coverage any more.

Hopefully we win the bowl this year, and cement his legacy as one of the best. But that window is closing.

He's going to retire as we are winning the SB this year.

I could see us winning the Superbowl, but Champ is a ways away from hanging up the cleats. I think both Elway and Manning also have a significant impact on playing for "legacy" rather than just winning a single Super Bowl. If we win it this year, we would certainly be favorites to repeat the next year as long as Manning is still our QB.

I'm concerned with 2013 right now. Let's see how he finishes THIS year before speculating on NEXT year.

The question of the poll is interesting when "if asked" is included. That means the FO is asking him to do something. If he says no does that mean he's not a team player? And if the coaches are asking that it kinda hints they see a decline in his game at CB.

Dude that first one annoys the piss out of me. That was a blatant offensive PI. No one recovers from that.

The video in the middle shows how bad the pass rush was. Flacco just sits there. That first one is just a great play by the reciever. Champ was running to where the ball was going, the reciever just went up and got it early. Bottom is the pure definition of burnt and abused.

That bottom video shows 3 broncos around 1 raven reciever. Was that designed or a busted play by the safeties? Seems to me one of them is out of place.

Whatever works best for the Broncos and I'm sure Champ feels that way too.

Honestly Champ can still play CB, and very well. Our safety help has been decent at best. Hopefully with a better interior DL, we'll get more tackles made by defensive linemen and we can keep a LB to help with underneath coverage and keep that safety back over the top to help on the longer routes for Champ. He's still got the underneath stuff pretty good. So I think we keep him at CB this year and just keep a safety back all most all the time.

he had an amazing year and as usual the broncos idiot nation can only remember as long as their last blackout theres not one person on the roster now that can even play half as good as champ at the 1CB position. If you think otherwise please be a raider fan.

You're right . Was that our friend Raheem Moore in the short middle instead of having deep middle. Too many Broncos covering the crossing pattern

There isn't a player on the roster yet good enough to take champ's spot. I hate the offseason

Maybe they thought champ was good all alone. Just seems like one is out of place though.
