The Rap Sheet:
The last player to meet the media was Patriots WR Wes Welker, a nice was to cap off a busy week. The slot machine broke down the week of preparation and turned his focus to the Ravens.
One of Welker’s main points? The Ravens will be physical and his team needed to follow suit. Whereas, against the Steelers, they did not.
“They’re very physical,” Welker said. “They are a physical football team and you have to understand that they are going to come out hitting and you have to come back and hit just as much. You have to understand that it’s going to be a physical football game and it always is with this team. You have to make sure you’re not backing down from any of that.”

In Welker's case, he linked up with a franchise that just...
FOXBORO, Mass. -- Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Friday he hopes to strike an offseason deal with wide receiver Wes Welker, who will become a free agent. Welker has never gotten to this point in his contract since being acquired by the Patriots in 2007.

Ravens cornerback not letting on whether he will shadow Patriots' top receiver
Conventional wisdom would seem to suggest that the Ravens top cornerback, Lardarius Webb, would be matched up against the New England Patriots’ top wide receiver, Wes Welker, when the teams meet in Sunday’s AFC championship game.
When the Patriots have needed a boost this year, the answer has been easy. Go no-huddle. Coach Bill Belichick tells them to “Go!” QB Tom Brady starts hurrying everyone up, and they step on the gas. Often with five wides, usually in three minutes or less, the Patriots will move down the field.
It has always been a weapon, but we saw it more than ever last week against the Broncos...
