Bailey Says a Super Bowl Would Wrap Up His Career

The Denver Post has a good feature today on Broncos CB Champ Bailey, and how a Super Bowl title would be the cap to a great career:

Champ Bailey is going on decade No. 2 in the NFL.

In Bailey’s first 10 seasons, 15 different teams have played in the Super Bowl. None of whom have been any of Bailey’s teams.

“The older I get, the more it bothers me,” Bailey said.

After five seasons with the Redskins and now in his sixth season with the Broncos, Bailey has become recognized as one of the league’s top defensive backs despite his absence from the league’s greatest stage.

Bailey had a streak of eight consecutive Pro Bowl seasons snapped last year because of a groin injury suffered in Game 7 against Josh McDaniels’ Patriots. Does coming off his injury-plagued, non-Pro Bowl season heighten Bailey’s anticipation for 2009?

“That’s not what really drives me,” he said. “Winning it all drives me. I’m not concerned with the Pro Bowls. They come as you play well. Don’t get me wrong, they’re great when you get them, but I want to be in the championship game at the end of the year.”
