Belichick and Welker's complicated relationship, and the winner of who want's to be Wes Welker's clone!
Alert, alert, there have been shots fired. New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick insists that Wes Welker's hit on Aqib Talib was deliberate. From what I can see during the replay Welker had enough time to prepare for contact, lower his head, have a coffee break, and lay the lumber on Talib. Of course Talib was injured during the play and Belichick left it up to the NFL to determine the punishment, as he always does. According to NFL.com the hit was legal as another receiver already had possession of the ball before contact was made. I don't think so NFL, there are pictures all over google images that clearly show that Thomas did not have possession of the ball before the hit. Belichick is right NFL, deal with it. Lets take a look at where this whole mess began, March 2013, Welker's contract year. Broncos twelve million versus Pats eleven million and the winner is the Broncos! Wait what? Why did you leave?
According to Boston.com Welker was pointed out by Belichick in front of all of his teammates and criticized. Ok that's why…… Way to go Bill, thats our best receiver and Tom Brady's security blanket and now he is gone due to criticism. Any slot guy want to play with Tom Brady? Anybody? Lets have quarterback turned wide receiver Julian Edelman and Danny Always Injured Amendola as the starring cast of who wants to be Wes Welker's clone, and yes there is a winner. Lets fast forward back to this year.
The winner of who wants to be Wes Welker's clone goes to Danny Always Injured Amendola. Wait. No. That can't be right. My bad. The correct winner is Julian Edelman who broke 100 receptions and became Tom Brady's favorite target. Danny Always Injured Amendola was projected to be this years winner but had 40 less receptions than Edelman. You got beat by a college quarterback, way to go, but you'll have another shot. Thank you for starring in the show Danny Always Injured Amendola, but as you know there is always next year.
Back to what I really came here to talk about Bill versus Wes, and cut-off sweatshirt sleeves versus huge helmets. Bill you have to respect Welker, even if he does deliberately take out Aqib, as he was one of Brady's favorite slot guys. Wes simply don't take out Aqib, we all saw that it was illegal, just don't do it again. Please make up and lets have a good clean fight next year between the Patriots and the Broncos.
