NFL Playoffs, Jets Vs. Patriots: Wes Welker Benched To Start Game

Wes Welker’s tongue-in-cheek interview, rife with foot references, has earned him a spot on the bench to start today’s game against the Jets, as Bill Belichick will keep the receiver on the sidelines for joining in the back-and-forth with the Jets.

Hopefully this benching won’t last too long. The Patriots need all-hands-on-deck for the Jets, and it’s hard to imagine Bill will sacrifice even one drive for discipline’s sake.
