Default Bubbleheaded Welker gets brain-slapped AGAIN

Purely legal hit too. Guy came in with his shoulder and Welker ducked INTO the headshot. Flag came out of course because touching a helmet is a capital offense now. Fuck 21st century football :(

Peyton Manning is in mid-season from when it comes to bitching

Manning was bothered enough by the hit that, following a touchdown throw to Emmanuel Sanders on the following play, Manning ran all the way into the end zone to confront Swearinger.

Manning leads Welker across the middle where there are three DBs and then gets upset Welker gets hit (link below - could not embed video)

Wes ducked into it. That's the only play Swearinger could make.

Anyone who has ever played defensive football knows there is no way to stop when you are running full speed as you are taught to cover a pass over the middle. He clearly turns his body and hits him with his shoulder and not his helmet. What the hell is he supposed to do, turn into superman and go straight up or stop dead in his tracks? Impossible. Welker lowered his body trying to defend himself like any receiver would do and thus was hit in the helmet. No one's fault in my opinion, just football.

I guess one thing Sanders took away from his time with the Steelers was to emulate Ryan Clark and never let an opportunity to comment on anything pass you by

“Definitely it made me mad," Sanders said. “The fact that Peyton was addressing the situation, that means it was a bad situation. [Swearinger is] a competitor all week in practice he’s been getting into it sometimes, he lets attitude get the [best] of him."

http://espn.go.com/blog/denver-bronc...raises-concern

Because a great leader like Peyton only acts out when it is necessary to act out

STFU

He's lucky Swearinger didn't pull a Jack Lambert on him!

Someone finally goes there (even if it is a writer who covers the Pats)

Do you tell your dog to fetch, throw the ball in the street, then yell at the driver who hits him?

Only if you’re too numb to realize you’re the one who got him run over.

Wes Welker’s sitting with another concussion today not because D.J. Swearinger hit him in the helmet but because Peyton Manning threw the ball into a team meeting Saturday night.

Manning can be as pissed as he wants to be at Swearinger but he bears some of the burden for throwing over the middle to his 190-pound concussion-prone receiver with a converging mass of three Texans. In a preseason game. When Manning wasn’t under pressure.

Manning threw what is commonly referred to as a hospital ball.

There’s an incredible amount of trust receivers put in their quarterbacks to keep them out of harm’s way as best they can. Sometimes, those hits are unavoidable and the receivers accept that huge, brain-rattling hits are part of the game and the cost of doing business.

Welker took his share of hits in New England as well. Ryan Clark of the Steelers devastated Welker in 2008 after an incomplete pass. He got smoked by Bernard Pollard of the Ravens in the 2012 AFC Championship.

But you’ll have a hard time finding a pile of plays where Welker got led into the middle of traffic and then asked to go get the ball and wound up knocked out.

It’s Welker’s third concussion in 10 months. Of the other two he sustained, one was him running around too long when he should have hit the deck against Kansas City. The other was a little option route in the middle of the field on which Manning led Welker into George Wilson of the Titans by Manning.

This isn’t isolated to Welker either. Austin Collie got knocked into oblivion with regularity while catching passes from Manning.

Manning is a genius pre-snap. But post-snap, you have to wonder how he doesn’t see the potential for disaster unfolding on some of his throws. Or maybe he does and the fact he delivers the ball with less velocity than every other quarterback in the league is the problem. A quarterback who rips the ball to an open receiver gives him a chance to get out of harm’s way. Manning delivers some flutterballs.
