Wes Welker strategy is unfathomable

The laws of logic, nature, and physics don’t always apply to Bill Belichick’s Patriots. They’ll try to convince you that two plus two equals five. That the cloudless blue sky you’re looking at is actually a purple haze. That what goes up stays aloft in perpetuity. That Julian Edelman is as good a wide receiver as Wes Welker.

You’re expected to just nod in the affirmative, utter “In Belichick We Trust,” and walk in lockstep off a cognitive cliff. Understandable. The guy is unquestionably the greatest football coach of his generation, probably of any generation. He always has his reasons, even if he rarely presents them for public consumption.
