So Bill Bellichick is saying that the conditions of the playing field are to blame for Wes Welker's injury, and honestly I just have to shake my head. It's a well known fact that I've never been a fan of Bellichick, but even so, I find it hard to imaginine this as anything more than a way to cover his bum about his star receiver blowing out his knee in a meaningless game.
To blame Welker's injury on the field conditions is ridiculous; it was a non-contact injury that could have happened in practice or even drills. So all you grieving Pats fans need to lighten up on the Texans . The field may have been bad, but I noticed that 105 other players had no problem with it. I remember a game a few years ago between the Dolphins and the Steelers on what had to be the worst field conditions ever seen. How many people suffered a knee injury?? Zero . There will always be freak injuries; they're just a part of the game.
Bill, own up.
