Early in the season, when the catches were down and many wondered if he was being gameplanned out of the offense, Wes Welker remained mum on the subject.

The former Heritage Hall star and current New England Patriot wideout deflected questions and shot down conspiracy theories.

Three catches in the opener was just a bad day. Five receptions and limited playing time in the second game was nothing to be alarmed about.

But now that things are back on track, with three consecutive 100-yard games and a 13-catch performance on Sunday, Welker couldn’t resist taking a brief shot at his legendary coach, Bill Belichick, who some believed purposely scaled back Welker’s offensive role as a contract ploy.

“Yeah it’s kind of nice to stick it in Bill’s face once in a while,” Welker joked with CSNNE’s Mike Felger after the game. “So this is definitely a good one.”

Bellichick responded in the most Belichick of ways at his Monday press conference, claiming he “didn’t really see” the comment and stubbornly brushing it to the side when pressed further.

“You should ask him about it then,” Bellichick said. “What he meant by it, I don’t know.”
