CSNNE:CSNNE's Mike Felger asked Welker how it felt to come out and grab 13 balls on Sunday compared to just the three receptions he had in Week 1."Yeah it's kind of nice to stick it in Bill's face once in a while," Welker said with a smile and wink. "So this is definitely a good one."Hah!Well this is one of two things, either Welker is actually taking a (friendly?) shot at Belichick here, or he's referring to Mike Felger's support of all the conspiracy theories surrounding Welker and his contract situation.The story has been well covered by now, but in the first two games Welker saw his playing time dip. An overblown story being that Julian Edelman had risen above Welker on the depth chat (a myth not a fact, Welker played more snaps).

Wes Welker Takes A Shot At Bill Belichick

See I don’t have a problem with this at all, but I can certainly see Bill Belichick not liking it one bit.

No, but Aaron Hernandez and Julian Edleman will be back very soon. Between those two and the way the Patriots have been...
