Bill Belichick told his players not to engage in any trash talk exchanges with the New York Jets. Though Wes Welker is complying with his coach’s request, he definitely raised a few eyebrows with his extensive foot metaphors during a news conference on Thursday.
Throughout his descriptions of the Jets and his own team, Welker referenced “foot” or “feet” on 11 different occasions throughout his brief interview with the media. While it wasn’t a direct jab at Rex and Michelle Ryan‘s recent foot fetish controversy, Welker’s responses seemed to have some intent behind them.
Here are a few examples of Welker talking “foot”ball.
“Having Tom [Brady] in there — it goes without saying, the guy is who he is and he does a great job of making sure everyone is on the same page and putting their best foot forward going out there and playing well and doing what they can out there. “
“[We're] really moving forward and we’re going out there being good little foot soldiers. We are making sure we are going out there doing everything coach asks us to do: making plays and doing everything necessary to get ready for the game.”
“I think he [Darrelle Revis] is very patient. He has good feet. He moves around really well. He understands the game. He gets his hands on you pretty well. [He] understands what you’re trying to do to him, so he definitely is a tough guy to really set up and get open against.”
