No bulletin-board material coming out of Broncos camp today.

Here are coach John Fox’s responses when asked about two of the top NFL stories of the day: Richard Sherman’s rant on 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree, and Patriot coach Bill Belichick calling out Bronco Wes Welker for the injury to New England cornerback Aquib Talib.

Asked his thoughts on Sherman “running his mouth”, Fox said: “It’s hard for me to comment on something I’m not familiar with. I know he’s a terrific player, a great cover guy. We did see him in the preseason, so he’s a talented player. I really can’t comment on much other than that.”

On Belichick, he said: “I haven’t even seen the tapes, I haven’t seen his comments. I don’t feel that I can comment on that, other than I know Wes Welker is a great player, high integrity. I can say we were not doing anything with intent. That’s really the only comment I have.”

    I wonder if Fox read or heard Sherm’s “thanks to the A hole fans out there for all the motivation you give us.”

    Couple of things:
    – The Welker “hit” on Talib is one of the dirtiest plays I’ve seen in a long time. If the NFL is serious about cracking down on attempts to injure, Welker should be suspended.

    – The play is worse because it’s one of these clearly illegal pick routes Denver constantly runs. Given the so-called national media is going to harp on our DBs holding … I think the Seattle media should be asking a lot of questions about these pick routes Denver runs

    – That leads to officiating. I wonder what happened to Bill Leavy who reffed the Hawks-Steelers Super Bowl? Wonder where he’ll be watching the game? And, what’s the league going to do to prevent a similar debacle?

  3. BlowMontana says:

    Just to clarify point 2 … I know the role of the Seattle media is not to advocate for the Hawks.
    But, I think there is a role providing journalistic balance on that issue.
