Found September 16, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Patriots receiver Wes Welker did not start Sunday's game against the Cardinals and he didn't enter the game until the four-minute mark in the first quarter.Fantasy Spin:New England's curious handling of Welker continues. One has to wonder how long it would have taken Welker to enter the game if Aaron Hernandez didn't get injured in the first quarter.

Does not playing Wes Welker give the Patriots the best chance to win?

It doesn’t make much sense on the surface, an All-Pro receiver under utilized when there is a dire need for him. Wes Welker had less snaps (43) than Julian Edelman (55), and Edelman is no Welker. Welker has caught the most passes since 2007, and he’s scratching his head on why he’s not getting more burn. Wes talked on WEEI in Boston with Mut, Lou, and Troy Brown about if...

Is it plausible the Pats are saving Welker?

One of the theories floating around out there about Wes Welker is that the Pats are simply trying to...

Wes Welker Doesn't Hand Out Blame as Speculation Increases About Involvement in Patriots Offense

The way many people see it, Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker was left out of New England's game plan in some ways on Sunday. The way Welker sees it, though, it was just another game, with everyone doing their best to fill their roles. "We've got a good team and some good players, and [offensive balance is] good to have," Welker told WEEI on Monday. "If we...

Wes Welker Treatment Raises Questions of Patriots' Direction, Whether Tom Brady Is Next

Catch the Patriots taping opposing team's signals on the sidelines? Yawn. Watch Wes Welker seemingly get shunned from the Patriots' offense after an offseason contract situation in which he was nothing but the good soldier? Now you've got the attention of New England fans. Patriots supporters are waiting to see whether Aaron Hernandez's ankle is hurt badly and wondering...

Feeling Sorry for Patriots WR Wes Welker (Related: I really don’t like the Pats)

Wes Welker broke one of the Patriots cardinal rules and then the Cardinals beat the Patriots. I’d say things are even for now. New England Patriots WR Wes Welker used to be Tom Brady’s right hand man. That’s why it seemed logical that the Patriots would try to work out an acceptable deal to extend Welker despite his size and advancing age. Especially, since he returned so quickly...

Quick Out: Wes Welker

Welker owns 4 of the top 25 single season reception totals in NFL history, no one else has more than 2 in the top 25 (2 each for C.Carter, J.Rice, J.Smith and M.Harrison). He is coming off a tie for the 4th highest reception total ever when he had 122 receptions in 2011, and you do not go from that point to being behind Julian Edelman on the depth chart. The issue here is a...

If Bill Belichick is vindictively punishing the great Wes Welker, the fraud should again be ashamed of his behavior

Despite putting up solid numbers and breaking Troy Brown’s record to become the all-time receptions leader in Patriots history with his 558th catch in New England’s embarrassing 20-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, speculation is mounting that receiver Wes Welker … Continue reading →

You Don’t Mess With Bill

There’s a very simple explanation for what is happening between the New England Patriots and the team’s relationship with Wes Welker. After Welker was third on the depth chart at wide receiver during Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals – behind Julian Edelman – there’s been speculation everywhere about what the hell is going on, but I haven’t heard anybody come up with...

No Aaron Hernandez, no excuse for Patriots

If you were watching the New England Patriots game Sunday you were repeatedly told by FOX announcer Dick Stockton that the only reason New England was out of sync offensively was due to the loss of tight end Aaron Hernandez. From the moment Hernandez went down after Julian Edelman rolled on his ankle while being tackled on an early first quarter pass play the long time play-by-play...

Will Wes Welker get a fresh start now that Hernandez is out for weeks?

If one of the Patriots’ Swiss Army Knives Julian Edelman gets cut this week, its pretty much safe to say it’s because he took out one of the team’s superstars. Edelman rolled up underneath tight end Aaron Hernandez’s ankle during Sunday’s loss against the Arizona Cardinals as he made his way downfield after catching a screen pass from Tom Brady.

Patriots look to build on win over Tennessee

Bill Belichick got one of his answers he was looking for in the Titans game. He found out that his defense can shut down a premier running back with speed cold in his tracks. Against Arizona this weekend, the question will be whether they can they shut down an elite receiver in Larry Fitzgerald. Starting quarterback John Skelton has an ankle sprain, so Kevin Kolb will be the guy...
