Wes Welker takes blame for last night's loss

Matt West/Boston Herald
Wes Welker took responsibility for last night's loss after he waited until the last second to start waving his teammates off on the final punt of the game, which of course was touched by one of his teammates, thus allowing the Patriots to kick the game-winning field goal with 2 minutes left in OT.

Here's what he had to say about it, per Boston.com:

“I felt like there was a lot of traffic and it was a high ball. I didn’t want to get into a situation where someone was running into me or something else, and I ended up with the situation I didn’t want to happen in the first place. I have to do a better job of getting up there and getting those guys out of the way and making sure it doesn’t hit them.”

It seems like Wes Welker has a thing for making bad mistakes in big games. Pats fans will remember his playoff drops, and I'm sure Broncos fans won't like him for this. This time, Welker's penchant for making big mistakes in big games worked in our favor, so Patriots fans everywhere salute you, Wes. Maybe he did it because he felt guilty about leaving the team that he spent 6 years with, so he did that on purpose to let us win. That's probably wishful thinking, but I still am grateful to you, Wes for your 6 years here and for allowing us to win last night. So thanks for that.
