Wes Welker’s hilarious foot interview video is making the rounds! Watch the clip here of the conference where the Patriot’s receiver really gets his digs at Jets Coach Rex Ryan! Videos and photos after the jump.
Jets fans aren’t laughing, or maybe they are, after Patriot’s player Wes Welker’s jabs at New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan during a Thursday press conference in defense of QB Tom Brady (pictured above), and his team. Cleverly making more than half a dozen foot references in an effort to dig deep beneath the skin of Ryan, Welker’s attempts may not have done the trick (or so they say), but the video is getting a lot of play, and laughs!
So what ignited this verbal sparring match between the opposing teams? After Ryan had been talking smack about Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady in the last few weeks, Welker decided to step in with a few strategically placed words of his own. And since the head of the Jets was just in the news, making headlines for his foot fetish, well…the Pat’s receiver just added salt to the still fresh wound of the head coach!
“These are the games you play for. What you spend all year getting ready for and you just want to put your best foot forward,” Welker stated during the press conference.
Since the infamous foot interview video has created quite a buzz online, Jets linebacker Bart Scott has decided to get involved, and per ESPN he isn’t happy! Threatening Welker for his reference to toes, feet and the like, Scott spoke out saying – “Be very careful what you say about our coach. His [Welker's] days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that.” Hey, if his days are numbered he could always guest on Saturday Night Live! Wait till you see the clip, he keeps a perfectly straight face through it all!
Things are really heating up between the Jets and the Patriots and with a game scheduled for January 16th, this is definitely something you don’t want to miss! Tell us what you think about Wes Welker’s revenge, with the foot interview video below!
