Whaaa, boo-hoo!

If the ball had not been tipped he would have got there at the same time, then it would have been the defender separating the ball from the receiver.

Hey GMAN, you'll see us again? Maybe next year, the Cheatriots are done this year.

This is what happens when you take away Bellicheats video tape.

Unnecessary? This is football you panty-waste. Maybe the patriots should wear skirts and change their name to the patty-cakes. lol. If you don't like the hitting go watch golf. Punk.

You want to run routes across the middle against the Steelers? You're gonna get smacked down b!tch. Too bad Moss didn't run a few into no-mans-land. lol! You play afc north teams you're gonna get some injuries. That's how things roll in this division. Why do you think the browns and the bengals are so beat up all the time? They have to play the Steelers and the Ravens twice per year.

I am a Pat's fan.........watched the game and saw the "hit"...... did Wes get hammered....HELL YEA...."vicious"?? maybe...maybe not.....I really think who hit him was in the act of doing his "job"........ I DO hope Welker recovers and not a whole lot of nothing gets leveled at the guy who hit him........football is a rough sport.....

No thats what happens when you lose one of the best QB's in the league to injury.

This is a game where 1 second makes all the difference. The tipping of the ball only adds to the fact that it was easy to misjudge the ball arrival and the hit. You can't have these guys 2nd-guessing whether to hit b/c pansy fans want him suspended for the rest of the season for a hit.

I'm glad Welker got up and seems okay.

Here you go where? LOL! As far as I'm concerned, if you dont win the Big game your in the same category as the team who didnt even make the playoffs....Now, do you really think the cheesy Steelers and Ben Worthlessburger are gonna bring home the trophy? LOL! Not even if your team Doc supplies you guys with HGH like they did against the SeaFlops in the Superbowl.You guys celebrate like you accomplished a tremendous feat. Beat an injury ridden Patriots with a Qb with fresh pimples on his face....Whoo-Hoo!

this is FOOTBALL!!!! hard hits are going to come. it was a totally legal hit. bad judgement by the ref to pentalize Clark on the hit. watch the replay, Clark is gettin into position to hit Welker before the tip. Its Clark's job to hit make sure Welker doesnt catch the ball. If the ball wasnt tipped there would be no discussion on if it was an unnecessary hit or not. The NFL has become so watered down lately that its taking away from the physical aspect of the game. You wear pads for a reason. Now take a hit like a professional football player should. That goes for quarterbacks too.
if you seriously think that was a cheap shot, you know crap about football.

Hey Buddy, last I checked the Steelers did "bring home the trophy" on february 5th, 2006. That was almost 3 years ago and many of the same players are still on the same. This year is looking to be a good one. The defense this year is better than the SB defense. The offense is better at passing but not as good at running. We miss Bettis and Faneca and Hartings. The new line is starting to gel and with our #1 ranked defense, the Steelers are the team to beat in the AFC.

Stop crying pats fans. Did you forget last week when one of your players started roid raging on the field and punching a man with no helmet on. You forgot didn't you. It's professional football and this just isn't your year. Watch the Celtics.
