Wes Welker: Win on Sunday won’t ‘take care’ of 18-1

INDIANAPOLIS — Speaking at Sunday’s media availability at University Place on the campus of IUPUI, Wes Welker was asked if a victory over the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI would “make up” for the Super Bowl loss four years ago.
“The only thing I’m focused on is winning this game,” Welker said. “Does it take care of what happened? I don’t think so, no, but at the same time I’m not worried about that. What happened, happened and we’ve moved on. The only thing I’m worried about is this game and what we need to do to win this game.”
Welker, who matched a Super Bowl record with 11 receptions in the loss to the Giants, was asked if Bill Belichick has spoken to the team about Super Bowl XLII, a 17-14 Giants win that spoiled New England’s shot at a perfect 19-0 season.
“We haven’t talked about it, this year is this year and we’ve had plenty of games this year to talk about. We’ve had plenty of those,” Welker said.
