According to Greg A. Bedard
Michael Felger asked the following question to Welker:
"Your 13 catches have got to put you in the top five in the league in receiving, which is a far cry from the three receptions you had in Week 1. A month later, it has to be more fun to come out of a game with 13 versus three."
Welker's response, which did come with a smile and a wink:
"Yeah, it's kind of nice to stick it in Bill's face once in a while, so this is definitely a good one."
What makes it strange is that Welker was the one who brought Belichick into it, apparently unsolicited.
Definitely a curious exchange, at least.
However if you watch the video, the crew was laughing when the question was asked, Welker was laughing and we all know that Wes has a "satirical" sense of humor, aka Rex Ryan Foot comment.
So do you think that this was really a shot at the relationship he has with Team now or more a case of a person happy with the win and letting his guard down a little?
I take it as the latter and think that this is really a case of the Media blowing things up and making a story. His presser and comments before this showed a person on board with the team and not a bitter malcontent. ... your thoughts?

Why does BCD need to cause issues after a key game win and a team that is really comming together....
