Topic - Wes Welker
The Denver Broncos locked up a shutdown cornerback, only his name wasn't Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Wes Welker swears he doesn't dwell on his costly drop in the Super Bowl two years ago that could have sealed New England's win over the New York Giants and made up for losing to them four years earlier.
Wes Welker ditched the orange suit for media day, much as he did comparisons between the two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks he's had the privilege of catching passes from.
Seattle's "Legion of Boom" secondary led by All-Pros Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas may be able to slow down, say, Demaryius Thomas, in the Super Bowl. That doesn't mean Peyton Manning will have to tap the brakes on Denver's Lamborghini offense.
Peyton Manning is the only player in this Super Bowl who has won the big game.
The QB knows both the elation of putting his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy and the anguish of watching it slip through his grasp, and he admonished his Denver teammates not to cut corners as they prepare to face the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2.
The NFL's officiating chief has cleared Broncos receiver Wes Welker of any wrongdoing for his hit that knocked Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib out of Sunday's AFC Championship.
With too many injuries and too few receivers, the New England Patriots' season is over two wins shy of a Super Bowl championship.
The collision that knocked Aqib Talib out of the AFC championship game reverberated Monday when Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Wes Welker tried to "take out" the star cornerback.
Peyton Manning and Tom Brady one more time with the Super Bowl on the line would have been good enough all by itself.
Wes Welker isn't looking back at his unhappy homecoming in Foxborough in November or his six seasons with Tom Brady in New England as he prepares for the Patriots' visit to Denver next Sunday.
Peyton Manning took a knee again, just as he had at the end of regulation exactly a year earlier.
Peyton Manning welcomed Wes Welker back into the lineup with a touchdown toss and the Denver Broncos narrowly avoided a repeat of their playoff slip from last year, advancing to the AFC championship game with a 24-17 win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
Wes Welker says he has no apprehensions about concussions or rust as he returns to the Denver Broncos' lineup Sunday for the first time in more than a month.
"That's the way the start of any Super Bowl, it's going to be loud," said Wes Welker, now 0-3 in Super Bowls. "The fans are going to be yelling. They don't really know why they're yelling. It's just the start of the Super Bowl. We didn't prepare very well for that and it showed."
"I'm very blessed to have this opportunity again and that's all you really ask for," he said. "It's all you work for during the offseason is to get to this point and now you just want to finish it."
