Decker: Kicking Cover 2’s ass

Eric Decker Gets Workout in With Peyton Manning and New Teammate Wes Welker

How did it go last week at Duke, working with Peyton Manning, Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas?:
“It felt like two-a-days. He had us working. Peyton. … Peyton had the whole itinerary and had all these plans for us to work out. … We worked out in the morning, meetings in the afternoon and more workouts in the evening time. It was a grind, but it was a good time.”

What does the addition of Welker mean for you?:
“I think, really, he’s going to take a lot of pressure, whether we see a lot of Cover 2, we see safeties kind of bracketing us outside. He’s really going to make the difference of getting those third-down conversions, of making sure guys really key on him. If there are blitzes, you’ve got a guy in the slot that can make a six-yard catch into a 60-yard touchdown. So that’s something that’s going to be interesting, to see how they play us defensively.”

I have to admit, this interview got me jacked up way more than any mock draft--let's face it, whoever the Broncos draft will have a lot less to do with their success in 2013 than watching Wes Welker split the middle of a Cover 2.

Good luck covering Welker with--well, anyone, really.  The Broncos have one of the top slot corners in the game in Chris Harris, and even he couldn't make a dent against Welker last year.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.
