I love Welker. He is definitely one of my favorite players now.
But he needs to keep his mouth shut on this. How many rings does Welker have?
Wait until you win a Super Bowl before saying that crap.
Please tell me why this is any different than what MANY MANY people on here said about Asante? None of us have rings.
And, honestly, Welker is right. The Pats were offering damn good money to Asante and he walked. Just like his mentor, Ty Law. How many rings did Ty get after he left the Pats. In fact, I think that only Klecko has gotten a ring with another team after being with the Pats since 2003.
we don't play in the NFL, nobody cares what we say.
Welker didn't win a ring. I hope he does soon though.
I just think it looks bad saying that and as an NFL player who hasn't won a Superbowl, he shouldn't be talking like that.
i obviously hope that Welker is right though.
Why does it matter whether Welker has a ring...he is not the one making the choice hear. Asante has the ring and Asante made the choice.
If Merriweather or LeKevin Smith said it would any of you have a problem with it?
I think Welker could have dropped the last two words, but I also think he's saying he expects to wearing a ring or two as a Patriot. Also, after last year, he's earned the right to say what he wants, ring or no ring, he's was one of the reasons the Patriots had the year they did.
IMO the only people who shuold be mad about the comment are those who play for and those who follow the Eagles. Because what the comments says is you don't have a chance to win a ring there.
Personally, yes !
They haven't contributed anywhere as much as Welker has, in just one year as a Patriot. Welker put everything he had into each catch and at times I thought he was going to get crushed. Defenses know what he can do and try and knock him around to disrupt his timing, remember the end of the Colts game, he was one angry dude !
Is he related to "Mahoney?"
Very true, if the Patriots end up in the SB, I hope the Eagles aren't standing on the other side of the field, if that's the case, that quote could come back and bite him in the butt. Also, don't think it'll be forgotten, the Media will remember and it'll be all over the place.
He is an r&b singer/songwriter.
No he is not related to Steve Guttenburg
Thanks Webster, I'm eagerly awaiting the release of your 12th Edition. Please let me know when this is available.
I like Welkers confidence in his statement and I also like the fact that he feels strongly enough about his position on the team to talk about the Asante situation.
I think what Welker said what Factually correct and for that he's in the clear. There is no mistaking that fact that Asante chose money, and I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that - He needs to do what's right for his family and himself. I wish him luck, unless he lines up against the Patriots and in that case I hope he and his new team looses big.
Asante had the flippin championship in his hands and let it go...
Can't blame a guy for moving to get a better job. EVERYONE else in this country does the same thing.
Except for all of those who don't.
Not quite....some kicker that will end up in our Hall of Fame also has a ring with another team.
And how can he forget Dexter Reid. The greatest safety of all time.
Greg Spires too or am I going back to far. Its tough becuase not to many teams other than us have won it.
Dumb comment by Welker. Asante has played on a championship team, Welker hasn't. Asante knows more about it than Welker. Welker should have kept his mouth shut on it.
I agree 100%. We haven't won any more championships than Philly recently.
depends on what you call recently because 04 imo is recent
You forget about #4.
And Gary Ruegamer was on Pats SB36 team and on Giants for SB41
It's a shame that we don't play the Eagles this year because I would love to see Welker catch the ball, take it upfield, and run over (or past) Asante who, as we all know, does not like to hit.
Did I hear this wrong, or is he reportedly having a lot of trouble adjusting to the Iggles style of defense?
Welker is a great athlete and I love the PLAYER - But hes not so smart in the head with a retarded comment like that.
Welker has won 0 championships,no reason to talk BS.
And hey Wes,Did you say Asante left for more money instead of championships?,Adam Vinatieri says Hi
- I also think the Eagles have as good a shot as any team in the NFC to get to the Super Bowl and have enough talent to win it all in 2008 (If McNabb can handle the pressure)
Just catch and run with the damn ball like you are supposed to Wes and STFU to the media.
The Patriots were 16-0 last season, set league scoring records and took an undefeated record into a Super Bowl which was won on a fluke play. The Eagles went 8-8, finished last in their division, and will have to leapfrog the #1 team in the NFC last regular season along with the Super Bowl champion.
What Welker said was right on, and everyone here knew it before free agency even started. Getting on Welker is just silly.
That's why I said 2003 (meaning the 2003/2004 season). Spires got his ring with Tampa during the 2002/2003 season.
If Asante really knew more about it, Welker would have his ring as well. Yes, I am calling Asante out. Because of his bad playing during the last drive of the SB, the Pats don't have their 4th ring this decade. His dropped interception and then getting burned by David Tyree of all people...
AV and I believe Reid also got rings in Indy, sadly.
#4? Who is that? I don't remember a #4. Or are you talking about that guy who replaced Vanderchoke in Indy? If that's who you are talking about, well, he's dead to me and no, he doesn't deserve to be in the HOF.
