Wes Welker Foot Interview: Subtle Trash Talk, or Baseless Media Firestorm?
The Wes Welker Foot Interview video remains one of the hottest searches on the internet, as the storm caused by the New England Patriots diminutive wide receiver's 11 different references to feet in a Thursday press conference refuses to die down.
Depending on who you ask, Welker was either poking fun at the now-infamous foot fetish of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, or he was just dropping cliches left and right, and the whole thing got blown way out of proportion.
On balance, the amount of hype that Welker's comments ended up generating seems to be the fault of the national media. Perhaps because there was a notable lack of trash talk coming out of New England in response to the never-ending stream of trash talk coming out of New York, somebody decided to draw their own conclusions.
Regardless, the damage has been done. And in an odd way, it has been kind of fun, if only for a moment.
One way or another, Wes Welker's foot comments will officially be old news as soon as the Jets and Patriots kick off on Sunday afternoon.
