Champ Bailey made it into five games this season, held back by an irritating foot injury. The NFL mainstay and leader in Pro Bowl appearances as a cornerback couldn't stress enough how good it felt to be back and playing in his first ever Super Bowl, after considering if it would never happen.

Sadly, Doug Baldwin and Russell Wilson just connected for an explosive, deep pass that gained a lot of ground and left the legendary Bailey in the dust.
