Wes Welker’s wife went on a Facebook rant about Ray Lewis after the AFC title game.
“Proud of my husband and the Pats,” Burns Welker wrote. “By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids, 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!”
“At the end of a Tuesday edition of “SportsCenter,” Steve Weissman jokingly told his married co-anchor that she appeared to be flirting with Wes Welker during an earlier interview. It went over about as well as you’d expect.” (via Yahoo! Sports)
“We text back and forth and rip each other back and forth before we ever play,” Ryan said. “That’s what we do. ‘Who’s going to be on me?’ ‘We’re going to put [Jets nose tackle] Sione Pouha on you.’
“But we have fun with each other. Trust me, we’ve said a lot worse to each other than what was reported. But I think he just went public with those comments, and that’s probably what upset Belichick.”
“Even though your toe was on the line probably a few times, we’re still going to give it to you man," Welker said. "You did a heck of a job.”
