In response to darwk's comment:
Wes Welker knows better than anyone there's no crying in football. Arguably one of the toughest professional player in any sport. His dependability, solid contributions to the team, accelerated recovery from a major knee injury, and ability to stay on the field after getting the daylight knocked out of him many many times during his time with the Patriots showed his character and professionalism every game. The man has game and talent.
I don't get the bashing of Wes. So what if he stated the obvious? Shhhh. BB is a tough coach. But we know BB gets results. His style may not be for everyone. And Wes's way with words may not be for BB. Bad mojo on parting, which is unfortunate but that's life.
TB definitely appreciated Wes's talent and vice versa. And they are friends, which speaks volumes. TB is also an intense demanding QB. And that's a good thing.
Time to move on. The rivalry with the Broncos and Pats will be intense this season. Can't wait.
Adrian Peterson is a million times tougher than Welker.
ridiculous overstatement ^^
No way in hell is a WR tougher than a RB. Considering the kind of hits RBs take and who are usually dishing it out (300 plus DL, 250 LBs) compared to Welker the WR who, every once in a while, will take a big hit from a safety (average 225) and tell me who's tougher? Heck, Welker had a minor tear of his ACL and came back in 6 months. Peterson tore his MCL, PCL ND ACL and also came back in 6 months.
There are 32 reasons not to throw the deep ball against the New England Patriots this season, they all end in "Because Devin McCourty will INT it".
