Ugh.  I loved Wes even when he was a Patriot but he should hang 'em up.  He's getting concussed every other game now.   I just read Praters going to be kicking it at home for 4 games for boozing too.  Things aren't boding well for the Donks.  Good thing the AFC west is terrible.

Payton getting in Swearingers face was a thing of Beauty.

Sadly the guy needs to retire before he spends the rest of his life masticating his pants.

"Wes Welker's Special Helmet" may be my new fantasy football team name.

I'm on the "he should hang em up" train too, if Welker wants to have any semblance of a post-football life. Otherwise, he can continue and be dead by 40.

Wait, what?  Last year every team in the AFC West that wasn't the Raiders made the playoffs.  That's a terrible division?

Pats fan.  Miss Wes a lot and wish he were still a member of the flying elvis brigade.  If we're though I'd still say this; hang it up man.

We really should call the NFC Championship game the Super Bowl and save the AFC the embarrassment.

It was more symbolic of your inability to realize that rules regarding hits to the head have changed a bit.  But keep at it cork you'll catch up eventually.

Sure, if you turn on the microwave he'll piss his pants and forget who he is for a half hour, but other than that, he's doing fine.

Next thing you know he'll take a 40 minute shower which causes him to miss the 2nd half of the game.

Nah, he'll just come to his senses and realize he's in a snow globe in a dollar store.

If you're two feet tall, the refs shouldn't be farking calling shoulder-to-helmet hits.  Maybe someone should stop and question whether or not it's safe for him to be out there.  Receivers are getting bigger, Safeties are getting bigger.  Wes Welker is tiny.

Swearinger is listed at 5'10"
Welker is listed at 5'9"

One of those is a crock of shiat.

While I don't care for the rule change, this is the right call.  If defensive players insist on make tackles doing what I like to call "the hockey shoulder check" (where the lower their shoulders, tuck their arms in and try to run through the target, rather than wrap them up), then the league is gonna keep fining him.  I bet dollars to donuts that if Swearinger opens his arms up there and tries to wrap up Welker, but still hits him in the head, he doesn't get a penalty.

Heads up, wrap up.  Learn to tackle and fark ESPN highlight plays.

So basically even if the defense uses just their shoulders (but not their helmet OR arms) it's a penalty? Great. We can look forward to 60-55 games.

Fu*k that.
