Default Thank you Wes Welker



There are marketing stunts, and then there are attempts to alienate entire regions of the country. This one feels like the latter.

Online pawn shop Pawngo.com left 900 pounds of Butterfingers candy bars in Copley Square to mock Patriots receiver Wes Welker, who dropped a key pass late in Super Bowl XLVI.

The website also left a large placard reading, "Thank you Wes Welker" next to the pile of candy.

"We're giving Boston a late morning snack to get over Sunday's loss #butterfingers" a post read on the company's Twitter feed.

Brutal. Welker's always been a stand up guy and overachiever so I feel for the guy. Oh wait, that was just gas.

we will take him. We expect more than one dropped pass per receiver a game.

Yeah, it's never the Brady's fault. Couldda been caught, but would've been an amazing adjustment.

Meanwhile, Broncs receivers drop the ball and people are wondering if Tebow sweat on the ball might've been a factor.

true but according to Collinsworth during the broadcast. "it's a catch he makes a hundred times out of a hundred"

i'd be all for bringing in a guy who reels in something like 110 balls a year.

agreed. but the way Collinsworth put it during the broadcast, he talked like that is a catch Welker always makes and that it was a shocker he dropped it. rather than speaking the truth that Brady overthrew and was a little off target with it.

That was a terrible throw considering Welker was pretty open, but it's one he usually comes up with.

Yeah, that was pretty funny. I remember thinking something like, "Must be a catch he drops once out of 101 times."

It's not like the Giants played a perfect game. Had the Pats capitalized at earlier points, played well in the first quarter, etc, etc, the catch by Welker woulda been irrelevant. The Pats lost as a team. Only A-hole fans who fail to capture the whole game would be behind this. Besides, even if Welker had single handedly cost them the game, what is the point in ridiculing one of your own. "Ya, we will call him 'Butterfingers.' That will show him and make him play better." Boston fan rears his ugly head time and time again. Most obnoxious fanbase in the USA.

against us, Brady would have hit a wide open Welker in stride and put 6 on the board.

Wes Walker is a class act.
The guy stood up in front of the cameras right after the SB and owned it;
can't really ask for anything more...
