Smack Talk Sports hosts Chris McCarthy and Sean Bakke have a jam packed show lined up! They will be breaking down  week two of the NFL and the New England Patriots loss at home to Arizona, plus they will tell you their theory on what is going on with Wes Welker and Julian Edelman plus [...]

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...

Mystery surrounds Welker's diminished playing time

Wes Welker caught more passes over the past five seasons than any other NFL player. So why is he spending more time on the New England Patriots sideline this year? Newcomer Brandon Lloyd has taken over the top receiving spot and three-year backup Julian Edelman has improved while Welker was involved in an offseason contract dispute and could leave as a free agent after this year...

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...

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.

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...

Trouble in New England?

      After the first two games of the Patriots season, they are sitting a 1-1, certainly a disappointment but nothing to get concerned about yet. What does seem to be troubling though, is WR Wes Welker’s diminished role early on this season. He is currently sitting behind Brandon Llyod and Julian Edelman on the depth chart and one could assume that if Hernandez did not go down...

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...

Deion Branch’s Return Shouldn't Take Snaps From Wes Welker, Will Enhance Tom Brady's Options

Deion Branch is back in New England, and the Patriots are excited to get the reliable No. 84 back on the field. After being a last-minute cut during roster trim downs on August 31, Branch's locker in the Patriots locker room has remained in tact with the expectation being that he'd find his way back onto the roster. Well, on Wednesday, he did just that. Unlike Kellen Winslow...
