Welker shows fancy feet during press conference


Welker shows fancy feet during press conference

By Tom E. Curran

Wes Welker, the heart and sole of the Patriots wide receiver corps, arched some eyebrows on Thursday when he slipped several foot references into his press conference.

Rex Ryan and the missus are foot fetishists (he without strange pecadilloes is welcome to cast the first stone). Welker appeared to be having some fun with that fact.

A collection of his foot-related quips:

"Putting their best foot forward"

"You cant just stick your toe in the water, youve got to jump right in"

"Last year I had my foot up in the air trying to get the swelling to go down"

"You want to go out there and put your best foot forward"

"Hes got great feet, he moves around well and he does some good things out there"

"He is very patient. He has good feet."

"He is another guy with great feet and he can really move around and do some great things out there."

"You want to make sure that you are putting your best foot forward out there and making it happen."

"Were going out there being good little foot soldiers."

"A lot of teams you dont see all year, so you definitely have to be on your toes and make sure that youre ready to go."

Yeah, I see what you did there, Wes.
