Wes Welker: Bill Belichick Had Me Run Same Play He’s Mad About
Wes Welker has become louder and more boisterous since his departure from New England.
Welker of course caught Bill Belichick’s rath after he plastered Aqib Talib on a pick player during the AFC Championship showdown with the Patriots.
Welker disagrees, and told the media at the Super Bowl that it’s the same play Belichick always had him run with the Patriots.
“We ran the same play,” Welker said, via Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.
“It’s a rub play that everybody runs,” he said. “It’s one of those deals where you try to get a rub on that guy, and really, if you can get him to go over the top of you, the more separation the other receiver will have. That’s what I tried to do to get Demaryius [Thomas] a little more open, and unfortunately, we collided.”
Good for Welker.
