There's been plenty of talk about Bill Belichick's press conference where he bashed former Patriots receiver Wes Welker for his hit on Aqib Talib.

Belichick called it one of the worst plays he's seen, and was visibly angry about it.

NBC's Shaun King spoke with CSNNE's Jessica Moran, where he was asked if Belichick was being a sore loser.

"No, I think he was genuinely upset," King said. "A large part of his game plan was being able to put Aqib Talib on Demaryius Thomas and match him up in man-to-man coverage. People forget that at the time of that happening, it was a 3-0 game."

King isn't about to say Welker's play was dirty on the same level Belichick thinks, but does think Welker got in the way purposely.

"I don't think he tried to hurt him, but he definitely tried to prevent him from covering Demaryius on that play, and it resulted in Belichick losing a guy that was key to his game plan. So I think that was genuine disgust that Belichick expressed at the press conference."
