On Patriots Football Weekly, Andy Hart and Paul Perillo debate whether or not Wes Welker's hit against Aqib Talib in the NFC Championship Game was actually a dirty play.

And while the two rarely agree on anything, they're in agreement here on the hit. It wasn't dirty, despite what Patriots coach Bill Belichick says.

Hart: "I don't see what all the fuss is about. Welker actually tried to shy away from contact."

Perillo: "It's a borderline play. It's probably pass interference...but if it's that close, it couldn't have been that dirty."
