We know how Bill Belichick felt about Wes Welker's hit on Aqib Talib. What did Tom Brady say about his old buddy injuring his teammate?

"Truthfully, I didn't really see the play," Brady told WEEI's Dennis and Callahan Show. "The game ended, and I went to the locker room, then was on the bus, and flew home, then woke up this morning, and I haven't turned on the TV or anything. Hard for me to say."

It's was widely reported after Welker turned down the Patriots to sign with the Broncos this offseason that the relationship between Welker and Belichick had deteriorated significantly. Brady was asked if he knew of any lingering resentment that Belichick might have for his former receiver.

"I have no idea," Brady said. "He could probably answer that better than me. Wes is a great player and a great friend. They played a lot better than we did yesterday. I know we certainly didn't make e p to w. There's a lot of plays that impact the outcome of the game, and we didn't make enough good plays to impact the outcome in a positive way for us. It's unfortunate for our season to come to an end like this, but I'd say Denver earned it. They played a lot better than we did yesterday."
