Wes Welker spoke to the team before the game to get them hype
The Denver Broncos’ “guest speaker” at their team meeting Saturday night was receiver Wes Welker, team officials told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The former Patriots wide receiver addressed his current team before Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between New England and Denver after coach John Fox asked him to speak last week.
Welker has been asked ever since his arrival in Denver to compare the two quarterbacks with Hall of Fame credentials, something he finds harder to do than to go across the middle with a menacing middle linebacker bearing down on him.
“It’s like comparing Picasso and Michelangelo,” he said last week. “It’s hard to compare the two.”
As of right now it looks like Peyton is guiding his team in a artistic way to the Super Bowl.
