According to wide receiver Wes Welker, the Broncos weren't prepared for the noise at the start of the game.

"That's the way the start of any Super Bowl is: It's going to be loud," Welker said, per TheMMQB.com. "The fans are going to be yelling. They don't really know why they're yelling -- it's just the start of the Super Bowl. We didn't prepare very well for that, and it showed."

Welker fell to 0-3 in Super Bowls, so his comment is clearly coming from a place of experience and probably frustration.

It's interesting to note that in Wednesday's pool report from the Broncos' practice, USA Today's Jarrett Bell told us that John Fox -- who previously had been to Super Bowls with the Carolina Panthers as a coach and the New York Giants as a defensive coordinator -- turned down the simulated crowd noise during practice.

 

 

"Normally, it's about five times louder than that," Fox said at the time. "It's not an away game. The ones I've been to haven't been too loud. So we just kind of practice with what we think we're going to get."

(Ummm ... oops?)

Good thing it wasn't snowing, could have been another paragraph of excuses. 

 

 

Why does it seem like nobody can give credit to the other team anymore?

looks like Welker learned how to give post game excuses from Bellicheat, too.

Welker did a bit of damage to his rep I think with this. It is funny and sad at the same time.

How do you prepare for crowd noise? You get that in 8/16 games a year. You'd think it'd be something everyone already knows. Can't hear? Signal or bunch together.

I don't necessarily know if that play set the tone for the night or if it was just an immediate indicator of what kind of game this was going to be
