Champ gets his wish, finally

Broncos to give Bailey a shot at WR, how do you think it will work out?


Broncos' cornerback Champ Bailey has repeatedly expressed his desire to play on both sides of the ball, and it appears that his head coach is going to take him up on the offer. "That will be a big part of what Champ does in the offseason," Broncos' head coach Mike Shanahan is quoted as saying in Sunday's Denver Post. "We're going to see what he can do…to work some as a receiver. That speed of his makes it really appealing." Bailey had one reception for 11 yards last year, and recorded three previous receptions in his five-year career.

I think it's a good idea. Problem is he may not be able to play CB as well with the energy he'll lose. I think he'd make a good slot guy!

Re: Champ gets his wish, finally

I think it will work out pretty well for Denver. I was at the Cardinals game a few years back when Bailey scored a TD on a reverse (I think) while playing WR. Champ is a great football player plane out.
If I am not mistaken Deon played pretty well for the Cowboys at WR.
I know when he was on the Redskins in Madden 2001 I used to put him at WR with great success. :cool-smil

Re: Champ gets his wish, finally

just wait till a big ass linebacker levels him and breaks him in half. bailey is built like a CB, not a WR. hes not meant to take crunching hits from someone like a ray lewis or keith brooking. if he plays reciever, they better make sure he doesnt go across the middle or he'll be injured in a heartbeat

Yeah at 6-2, 192...he's not built like Isaac Bruce (6-0, 188), Torry Holt (6-0, 190), Marvin Harrison (6-0, 175), Chad Johnson (6-1, 192), or Donald Driver (6-0, 192). There are reasons why I don't think that Champ should play WR. However, being that I just named 5 1,000 yard wide receivers who are his size, I don't think his size is one of them.

I hope Taylor crushes him in the near future.

Re: Champ gets his wish, finally

I'm sorry, but as good as Bailey is at CB, I don't think he'll play WR well. Although Bailey played WR for the Bulldogs, I think his hands are suspect and it won't work out for the Broncos.

Re: Champ gets his wish, finally

remember we play his ass this year and arrington and taylor are gonna kick that ass. i think he will have to sit WR out that game he'll get to tired chasing patten and moss up and down the field then having to line up against the man who took his number and his place. WOOOOO

Otherwise... he should do well considering he has seen first hand how to catch a ball deep from all them WR that smoked his arse this year

Re: Champ gets his wish, finally

Well to be honest the players should hold no loyalty to the fans... we're fans of a uniform... an emblem... if joe gibbs came back and coached the cowboys how many people would follow him. None i hope. Players & coaches have to look out for whats best for them first. Granted there are players with enough character to stay on teams they love for less money (bruschi), but you really only get that with consistantly winning teams. Once someone starts waving millions of dollars in everyone else's face, their loalties will tend to change.

Having said that, it would be wonderful to see the chump play WR against his former team and try to do something cocky only to catch a forearm to the face (like TO) from the player who invented a position... the free linebacker (which was the highlight of my entire season).

Just understand, im not siding with the players who've left, i wish the $#!+ talkers of them nothing but the worst, but i can certainly understand from an objective standpoint how a player can change their mind about a team with a consistant losing record that wont kiss their ass like they've done so many other players in the past.

Smoot and Pierce haven't said a single bad thing about the Redskins organization.
