I mean, Denver. It is impossible to be a New England Patriots fan and not acknowledge that Bill Belichick's abilities are considerable and his success great. But there have been hints all along that he takes it too far and doesn't know when to stop, as fanatics often don't.
This is evidence. This didn't have to happen. This is personalities, and I fault the Bill side 80% and the Wes side 20% here. This was an affordable contract. This is just inability to rise above pettiness. New England may do well this season anyway. Stuff like this does not mean that they have lost all skill and perspective. But it's still just a childishness, I wish Mr. Welker well, even if it is against us.
