Wes Welker is haunted by Bill Belichick

Wes Welker details how bond with Bill Belichick fell apart

“It was just kind of hard,” Welker said. “One of those deals where you have to endure him, put up with him . . . But he does it to everybody, it’s the way he is.”

Welker, splashed across the cover in a spread-eagle pose, is now free to be himself in Denver, but he is still a bit paranoid about violating Belichick’s media rules.

“When I’m answering questions from the Denver media, I’m not worried about what the Broncos’ people are going to think,” Welker said. “I’m worried about what Belichick will think. Isn’t that crazy?”

Of course, the Broncos visit the Patriots in Week 12; we'll set the over/under at eleventy bajillion for how many times Belichick is asked about these comments between now and then.

Meanwhile, Mike Klis figures that John Fox won't be too thrilled about these comments, which is obviously pretty ironic.
