Giants Cornerback Corey Webster Wonders Whether Wes Welker’s Success Just a Result of Tom Brady’s Excellence

Wes Welker has led the NFL in receptions three times during his five years in New England, but Giants cornerback Corey Webster isn't too impressed.

Webster was asked about the Patriots' passing attack, and the number of matchup problems they're able to create for opponents because of their numerous receiving threats.

"I don't know if it's that Welker is the challenge, or he has a great person throwing him the ball," Webster said, according to the New York Daily News. "Kind of throwing off the timing between the quarterback and the receivers, I think, will help us a lot."

Webster primarily covered Deion Branch during the teams' Week 9 matchup, which marks the last time the Patriots lost. During their Super Bowl XLII matchup, Webster was tasked primarily with covering Randy Moss.

The seventh-year cornerback might be a bit skeptical of Welker's dominance in recent years, but he didn't hold anything back when it came to handing himself some praise.

"I think I'm great," Webster said. "I think I'm the best thing out there. I don't think I'm second to nobody."

There's certainly a fine line between confidence and cockiness, and Webster's now teetering on the edge.
