"Yeah, it's kind of nice to stick it in Bill's face once in a while. So this is definitely a good one," Welker said when asked if he enjoyed catching 13 passes.
"It was a joke," Welker said. "I don't know what to else say about it ... Bill and I have a good relationship."
We've heard some buzz that suggests otherwise, but Welker's willingness to even poke fun at Belichick is a sign he's comfortable with the coach. That's not a joke a rookie would dare try. Welker noted he'd have to be more careful about what he said in the future, which is too bad. Welker and Belichick are both sarcastic, and it's nice to see that come out in public.
Belichick was asked about it Monday, which should end this little news cycle.
The coach's unsurprising response: "You should ask (Welker) about it then, what he meant by it. I don't know."
