Wes Welker takes shot at Broncos' coach following heavy Super Bowl defeat

Published Add your comment

Denver Broncos went down to a humiliating Super Bowl XLVIII 43-8 defeat against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, and it turns out that they didn't prepare well enough for the big game. 

Broncos' slot receiver Wes Welker admitted post-game that his side did not prepare well enough for the crowd noise that clearly put them off during the game. 

Coach John Fox had said in the build-up that his team decided not to practice with noise because he felt Super Bowl's were generally quite affairs. 

Fox couldn't have been more wrong as the '12th man' forced an early safety for the Seahawks, and post-game Welker let his frustrations towards Fox be known. 

"That's the way the start of any Super Bowl is: It's going to be loud," Welker said, per "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."

Whether or not Welker was deliberately aiming his comments at Fox it doesn't matter. The comments themselves shown Fox's poor judgement leading up to the game. 

Even if not deliberate, it's an indirect shot at Fox after he said the Super Bowl would not be loud.
