It is starting. The chatter is starting to brew. The big game is getting closer with each tick of that clock and the chatter between thet teams is starting to pick up.
Seattle Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond was asked about Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker‘s play on Sunday against the New England Patriots when he knocked Aqib Talib out of the game. Here was his response from the New York Post:
It was really uncalled for. The receiver ran right into the guy. I don’t know the extent of the injury Talib had, but I thought we were supposed to protect football players in this league now. I guess not. I guess that only goes one way.
It does only go one way. IT ONLY GOES AGAINST THE DEFENSE! Offensive players can maul defensive guys and they won’t pick up penalties.
Welker had his head down, like he was coming down the whole time. That should be a flag, and he should be getting fined. There’s a whole bunch of things that should happen in that situation, but I don’t run the NFL.
Thurmond is going to see plenty of those routes against the Broncos. He better be prepared for Wes Welker crashing down on him. There likely won’t be flags thrown on that play though. All teams like to use that type of play on offense. What are the Seahawks going to do when the play is called against them?
