Of course. (see below)

Of course.

I'm just saying, that it is a great mental game that Welker is playing. Because, you know that Sherman is screaming at his HC & DC: "Let me cover his ass!!! I'll shut him down like a the government circa October 2013!!!"

There is NO WAY that Carroll/Quinn will actually let Sherman cover the "lesser" receiver... but.. if they did: advantage Denver.

Realistically, all that Welker is doing is riling Sherman up... which was Welker's entire strategy. Brilliant.

I would think that Sherman is thinking something more along the lines of, 'leave the goading to me.'

it was a nice try by Welker and I appreciate his efforts at games Manship but he is just a flea. Sherman wants the big dog #88. He is confident in the rest of the LOB to smack .wes down.

I am sure has smack was met with nothing more than a chuckle

If I was as brittle as Welker I wouldn't be encouraging DBs to light me up.

Sherman is smart. He's not going to pull himself off a #1 to cover a #3.

Players don't get to do whatever the hell they want.

I think Welker better watch his mouth because the last I saw, he was dropping passes more frequently in recent times. In fact, he dropped a huge pass in his last SB. We all remember that one where Tom Brady's wife had to stick up for her husband by saying "Tommy can't both throw and catch the ball".

The original comment was about Sherman pleading to come off his man to cover Welker, not freelancing.

Or, something like:
"I only cover 'good' receivers"
"I only cover '#1' receivers"
"I only cover receivers with normal-sized helmets."

Probably.

But, imagine, for one play, Sherman covers Welker... and knocks him out!!! Meanwhile, D. Thomas catches a 63-yard TD.

Everyone is happy.
