Monson: Welker may be key against Seattle’s single-high coverage

Analysis Notebook, SBXLVIII: Where Denver Attacks

Welker in particular has caught all six passes thrown his way when he has been targeted on those intermediate depth crossing routes and will be a real danger against this formation. The interesting matchup here is whether Earl Thomas will key on this route from his center-field position and use his closing speed to lay a big hit on the smaller receiver at some point.

Let's just hope Welker doesn't get to test his claim that he'd play through a concussion in the Super Bowl.
