Bill Belichick rips Wes Welker for hit on Aqib Talib

The Patriots’ Aqib Talib was knocked out of Sunday’s AFC Championship game with the Denver Broncos after getting leveled by Wes Welker on a pick play during the 2nd quarter. Bill Belichick blasted his former wide out after the game saying that he intentionally tried to take out his top cornerback, according to the Boston Harold’s Jeff Howe.

Fox Sports’ rule analyst, Mike Pereira, said that there should not have been a flag on Welker on the play (which there wasn’t), and he legally hit Talib after Demaryius Thomas caught the ball.
