Broncos receiver Wes Welker got fired up during the Super Bowl, and he tried to get his teammates fired up with him by reminding them that Denver’s offense had been all but unstoppable during the season.
NFL Films microphones caught Welker gathering his teammates together to try to give them a pep talk on the sideline after the Broncos struggled early. As shown on NFL Network, a frustrated Welker implored his teammates to play the way they had in the regular season.
“Hey! We’re the best damn offense to ever play this game,” Welker said. “We’ve got to start showing it.”
Welker knows what it is to play on a great offense: He played on the 2007 Patriots team that set the records for points and touchdowns in a season, records that the 2013 Broncos broke. Unfortunately, Welker also knows what it is to play on a great offense that disappoints in the Super Bowl. If the 2013 Broncos had the best offense ever, then perhaps we need to start labeling the 2013 Seahawks the best defense ever.
