Yo chef, if an OC and QB are purposely avoiding a CBs side of the field he's taking away that part of the field. It's handcuffing an offense because of a defenders ability. Even the most basic fan knows this. You yourself are saying QBs are avoiding them based on reputation. Well, that's taking plays away. Which is taking away part of the field
I don't think you get it either since you keep trying to have a discussion with him.

If he does, it'll be Bleacher Report.

I'm sure Champ doesn't prefer the safety position. Refused it? lolz....sure he didn't do that, too.

The Bengals have a little under 10,000 tickets remaining....if any of the three teams won't sell the game out, it will be the Bengals. I'm sure a corporation or someone else would buy up a few thousand tickets to ensure the game from being blacked out.
How much you want to bet those are all season ticket holders that didn't bother to turn in their playoff money thinking they had no chance of winning the division (or making it as a far fetched wild card).

I did?" Bailey said, smiling. "Hey, until these young guys start doing something, I'm not taking a back seat to them. Later on, maybe, but right now I still feel like I can play at the level I expect and the level they expect me to at corner. Besides, I'm not even close to 36. I'm 34."

Are you expecting him to switch mid season while recovering from an injury? This is also a paper asking the question, not a coach

Did I do anything or say anything in this thread that would make you think that. All I did was provide a link to where it stated he refused to move.

I have no idea what the coaches asked him. I'm just pointing out that the article you linked only contains a reporter asking Champ if he will be movie to safety. There were no quotes about the coaches asking him to make the change or even "anonymous sources" suggesting such a thing.

I don't see him saying, "No way am I moving to safety!"

More importantly, I don't see anyone other than the reporter asking him if he would move to safety.


It would be like reading a story about a reporter asking Mitch Unrein if he wanted to return punts and when hes says "No" you infer that he is defying Fox's wishes.

I just haven't heard or seen any evidence that anyone on the coaching staff has asked or would even consider moving Champ to safety.



p.s. Chef Luigi is an idiot.

Lulz. It didn't state that he refused to move, it said he wasn't considering a move to safety...yet.

We don't know what internally is being tossed about, that however is a public refusal.

But whatever you wanna think... spin it however you want.

The articles on Champ were before or right after the 2013 draft. He wasn't quite 35 yet and next season will be 36. Champ just had some major complications to injuries and a year older. It is now a different scenario for him and he will know if moving to safety is his best option...as well as the coaches.

While I personally think Champ is one of those rare athletes who could possibly play almost anywhere in the secondary, it doesn't mean he actually can.

There's no guarantee he will make a smooth transition to safety (if/when he does)....but if he can more power to him and the Broncos.

On this team right now, he has not much competition.
