If their dominating week 1 victory against the Tennessee Titans was any indication on Sunday, it appears as if the New England Patriots may already be working on phasing out wide receiver Wes Welker as the team prepares to see what life may look without No. 83 next season. We all know teh background when it comes to Welker and the Patriots. The receiver is unhappy with his contract status and the franchise tag designation, and he spoke out against it this past offseason. That is a no-no when it comes to the Patriots. While they will never say it publicly, that will generally spell the end for a player with the Patriots. When you add in the fact that the Patriots not only signed Brandon Lloyd this offseason, as well as the fact that they are expecting big things out of him as he is reunited with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, and this could be the lowest production Welker has in years. Look at the facts and stats from yesterday alone. We all know that the top two options for T...

Wes Welker Calls Tom Brady The Toughest Metrosexual He Knows

This quote is hilarious and if you can appreciate how Tom Brady is view by both sexes, then its really funny.

Wes Welker Receives Cut in Playing Time

Wes Welker owners are cursing themselves for using an early round pick on the New England receiver, after a three-catch, 14 yard performance against the Titans week one.

Wes Welker's Lighter Workload a Situation to Monitor Moving Forward

Fantasy owners and Patriots fans alike were thinking the same thing on Sunday, where is Wes Welker? The Patriots All-Pro receiver played in just 63% of the team’s snaps on offense and caught three passes for fourteen yards, which raises questions, especially due to his tumultuous offseason. Welker was in his familiar position in the slot to start the game, but was off the field...

Fantasy Football: The End Of The Wes Welker PPR Golden Era

From a fantasy owner's perspective, every star is allowed a "stinker" or two. Wes Welker's production over the past five years warrants a pass for yesterday's three-catch performance. With that being said, the signs are pointing to a major decrease in Welker's catches this year.Going back to the offseason - the Patriots signed Brandon Lloyd, and extended...

Wes Welker Bottled Up by Titans

Patriots receiver Wes Welker was a nonfactor in Sunday's win over the Titans. He registered just three catches for 14 yards.Fantasy Spin:Welker finished second in the NFL in receiving yards a season ago but on this day, four of his teammates were able to reel in more yards than the four-time Pro Bowler. Welker will have to do better than this if he still wants that huge contract...

Wes Welker Calls Tom Brady 'Toughest Metrosexual I've Ever Come Across'

A lot -- probably too much -- has been made about the boo-boo on Tom Brady's nose that the quarterback suffered on Sunday. There has also probably been too much made about Wes Welker's limited role in the Patriots' offense in the same game. So naturally, it was Welker who summed up Brady's situation better than anyone else. "He's such a good-looking guy,...

What's Up With Wes Welker? Brady's Binkie Limited In Opener

Wes Welker has been Tom Brady's go to receiver almost since the day he was acquired from the Dolphins (bet they wish they could have a do-over on that one), yet when the Patriots handily beat the Titans on Sunday, Welker was nary to be seen.The All-Pro slot receiver finished his day with three catches for 14 yards, putting Welker on track for 48 catches, far from his 2011 pace...

Wes Welker says Tom Brady is a tough metrosexual

Photo by Keith Allison New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker had a little fun with Tom Brady for getting his nose busted against the Titans on Sunday. “He’s such a good-looking guy,” Welker said, per the Boston Herald. “Obviously, he gets banged up, and he’s probably the toughest metrosexual I’ve ever come across.” All kidding aside, Welker was impressed by...

Hop On Board The Welk-ome Wagon, Wes

Oh week one, you have to be one of the greatest weeks to trade for an underperforming star.  Wes Welker turned in a complete clunker of a game vs the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, going for 3 catches on 5 targets for 14 yards and in very un-Welker like fashion topped it off by dropping a pass on what would’ve been a sure first down.  He’s the buzz of the week in terms of fantasy...

Fantasy Football Flops: Will Chris Johnson, Michael Turner, Wes Welker, and Hakeem Nicks Bounce Back?

I’m starting this weekly column to take a rational look back at the week that was in fantasy football. What I’m planning on doing is not giving you sleepers or irrational predictions, but rather taking a look at who did not live up to expectations. Chris Johnson fell well short of expectations in Week 1. Will he bounce back in the future? (Photo by By AJ Guel via Wikimedia...

Young Patriots Impressive In Opening Win

Early in the first quarter yesterday, it looked a replay of some of the worst moments of last season for the Patriots.  The defense gave up a first down on third-and-long, Wes Welker dropped a pass he normally would catch, and Brandon Lloyd looked suspiciously like the guy who wore #85 last season on a long bomb from Brady. The Twitter critics were basking in their self-made glory...

More Patriots reaction, Red Sox welcome Yankees to town

All Boston teams were off on Monday, but there was still plenty to talk about following the Patriots’ season opening win on Sunday. The two main story lines were the play of the rookies on defense, and the emergence of running back Stevan Ridley. Despite the convincing win, with the Boston media and fans there will always be something negative coming out of the game. This time...
