2012 Super Bowl: Giants' Corey Webster Takes Shot At Wes Welker

After being infamously known as the man who ended Brett Favre's run in Green Bay in the 2007 NFC Championship, New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster has made his way back to the Super Bowl as he and the Giants will once again be facing the New England Patriots.

On Saturday, Webster gave an interview to the New York Daily News about the upcoming matchup between the Giants and Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. In the interview, Webster had some choice words for Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, as he believes his success should be fully credited to quarterback Tom Brady.

"I don't know if it's that Welker is the challenge, or he has a great person throwing him the ball," said Webster, who mostly covered Randy Moss in Super Bowl XLII. "Kind of throwing off the timing between the quarterback and the receivers, I think, will help us a lot." (via NY Daily News)

Webster, who covered Deion Branch in the Giants vs. Patriots regular season meeting, believes he should be given more credit for what he's done this season. In other words, he thinks he should be mentioned in the same breath as another cornerback in New York.

"I think I'm great. I think I'm the best thing out there. I don't think I'm second to nobody." (via NY Daily News)
