New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Wes Welker throws his new team under the bus


When Wes Welker was with the Patriots he managed to draw the ire of head coach Bill Belichick and now with a new team he threw his coach under the bus.

After the game Welker commented that Denver wasn’t prepared for the crowd noise.

“That’s the way the start of any Super Bowl is: It’s going to be loud,” Welker said, “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.”

His head coach Joh Fox earlier in the week made the comment they didn’t use simulated crowd noise to prepare.

“Normally, it’s about five times louder than that,” Fox said, via “It’s not an away game. The ones I’ve been to haven’t been too loud. So we just kind of practice with what we think we’re going to get.”

Welker is right though, Fox didn’t prepare the team well for that. John Fox isn’t a great head coach lets just be honest. He, like the entire Broncos organization is riding the coat tails of Peyton Manning, but Fox should have prepared them for the noise.

Welker has become very outspoken, even before he left the Patriots and truthfully, I don’t care for his attitude.  I always thought people shouldn’t have been so hard on New England when they let Welker go to Denver because in 2011 they offered him 2 years, 16 million fully guaranteed deal but he turned it down. Welker thought he would cash in on a mega contract, but he didn’t not from New England or any team because as one NFL GM said “NFL pays guys like Calvin Johnson not Wes Welker”. He should have taken it, but all he wanted was the mega contract for an aging, chain moving wide receiver. Nobody was going to do that and the 2011 contract offer was generous. New England dropped their money offer as they said they would the next year and wouldn’t budge. He walked to Denver.

Julian Edelman, who I think is much better at YAC than Welker and had big numbers like Welker before, but also faster, and younger deserves a fair deal!

Back on topic though!

For a team and a QB that was constantly being praised for the preparation and attention to detail looked compelty unprepared for the Seahawks defense.

So, I actually agree with Welker on something.
