For those of you who haven’t seen Wes Welker‘s infamous drop in Super Bowl XLVI, here’s the best available video as it shows the time and score of the game when Welker decided to show the nation his butterfingers:
Furthermore, the New England Patriots would go on to lose that game as Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Welker never did win a Super Bowl together. Now, it may sound strange but after seeing his former team go home the loser in this year’s AFC Championship Game Welker actually had this to say:
“I’ve got a lot of love for a lot of guys over there, and the [Patriots] organization and the team, a lot of respect. I feel bad for ’em. Because I’ve been in that situation that they’re in right now.”
Everyone knows about Welker leaving New England for the Mile High City and now the wide receiver can really stick it to Patriots owner Robert Kraft by riding Peyton Manning‘s coattails all the way to a Lombardi Trophy. Unless of course, Welker puts on his slippery gloves and drops perhaps the biggest play of the game — again. Besides, it’s not like Welker has curbed his dropping habit — Welker had 10 drops during the regular season, which ranked as second most in the entire league.
For Denver’s sake, let’s hope Welker’s third trip to the Super Bowl is a charm because the wide receiver’s luck definitely hasn’t been too hot when it comes to Super Sunday.
