       It was a death in his family.Maybe you should wait to hear what REALLY happened before you start slandering one of the Patriots best players.
       See how foolish you look now?

    Thanks Mojo...

    Before getting to that, I was going to say...

    Take the Hernandez deal out of it. This is exactly how the Pats ALWAYS handle information...by giving none.

    Furthermore, regardless of the reason, if the Patriots excused him, then the fans and media have nothing to say about it really. Even if he WAS upset about it, and voiced that, and BB gave him the night off....what's the problem? Nobody thinks Welker is totally happy about the situation, but I also don't think anyone is under the illusion he's so mad he's going to undermine himself OR the team. I hope nobody is under that illusion at least. If he went to BB with these issues and this was the outcome....GOOD! Good for them to be able to handle it like adults. Don't let the Red Sox nonsense bleed over to this team, they couldn't be more different.

    Well he's back at practice, maybe he mentioned Ryans feet again and Belichick benched him.

    Seems we have TOO MANY fans who feel they are entitled to know EVERYTHING, otherwise we get discussion strings like this about pure speculation.  If it was anything football, the Pats, maybe later more than sooner, would have said something, but, this is personal and Welker's decision to divulge.  Oh what fans ask of their teams and players, like the Enquirer, the need to KNOW!!

    At least you made sure to apologize.  That impresses me.  Not that impressing me is important, just saying.

    I don't understand what's so bad about wanting to know about why he didn't suit up . Yes I want to know, too bad  and why the h e l l didn't the Patriots just come out and say it was a family issue. They re so damned buttoned up for god sake it creates a lot of unnecessary speculation.

    Well I think I was the closest. If I have learned one thing about BB it's that he is pretty much always two things- vague and honest. It's only reading into his words that we become deceived. Personal resons means personal reasons Non football injury list means injured but not from football Nothing to Report on Waters means he is not reporting anything Probable means injured but will probably play. Sure he's not saying much, but nothing is a lie.

    I get athletes deserve privacy but seriously when they asked Welker about it, he could have just said "there was a death in the family".  Anyone who saw the interview thought he came off weird with the "its a personal issue and you HAVE to ask coach about it."  Of course BB said it was a "personal issue".  It was the "you have to ask coach about it" line that got people thinking.  Why would they need to ask BB about a death in his family??

    Maybe he thinks it's none of our business. Maybe he doesn't want a thousand follow up questions and tweets and cards and stories and Facebook updates and reporters knocking on the door of his families house.

    It really is none of our business. These guys are people who face the same life issues we all do. If I went to my boss and said "there was a death in the family, I'd like to keep it a private matter", I would certainly hope and expect him to respect my wishes. BB was on WEEI yesterday, they asked him about this, and he responded with "Wes is going through a personal issue, I'm not in a position to discuss that matter". Which is exactly what he should have done.

    NeGame:

    Would I like to know more about what is going on - absolultely. However, given a choice between how Jets (and Ryan) operate and Patritos (BB) operate, I'd take our way any day of the week.

    I do like that they are consistent - don't talk period!

    If Belichick had just said that when asked the first time that would have been the end of it (pretty much)., but no he said when asked "we'll take it day to day" and said it a second time when asked. Now why would most of us not think the worst
    when the head coach uses "day to day. " I love Belichick but sometimes he really pisses me off

    Death is a matter of Public Record.  So the Info was there if anyone wanted too investigate.  That said this is why I hate speculation.
