Wes Welker’s Wife Says What Everyone Else Outside of Baltimore Thinks of Ray Lewis

+Read full article

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

When you’re a public figure like Ray Lewis and you choose to make yourself bigger than the game, which Lewis has done, you open yourself up for criticism. You just don’t think it’ll come from the wife of an opposing player, which is exactly where it came from after the New England Patriots lost to the Baltimore Ravens yesterday.

According to The Big Lead Sports, here is what Wes Welker’s wife, Anna Burns Welker, had to say about Ray Lewis on her Facebook page:

‘Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis‘ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!’

There must be something in the water up in New England because last season Gisele Bundchen, the wife of quarterback Tom Brady, also had something say after the Patriots lost in the Super Bowl. And just like Gisele, Welker is a model – well, sort of, since she was once crowned Miss Hooter’s.

Anyway, I can’t help but think that what Welker is saying is what everyone outside of Baltimore is thinking, that Ray Lewis’ act has gone too far. It’s enough with him acting holier than everyone else and crying every chance he gets in front of a camera. Simply put, his act has worn thin and he’s all about himself.

No one knows for sure what happened that night in Atlanta in January of 2000, but it sure feels like everyone is in agreement that Lewis probably knows more than he’s let on. The facts remain, however, that Lewis was charged with murder and the charges were later dropped, but he did plead guilty to obstruction of justice and was put on probation. Lewis claims to walk a higher path, yet he doesn’t live his life that way, which makes him one of the biggest frauds in sports.

Ray Lewis has been a great player on the field for a long time and he should keep it about the game and not make it such a personal journey. His act has worn thin and he should expect to get this kind of feedback if he continues to act better than everyone else.

Finally, someone has called Ray Lewis out in public, and the public rejoices.

Gronkowski recently revealed that he had once stripped at a bachelorette party in college, so when he was challenged to do so by the crew, he proceeded to get his moves on, and it was nothing short of glorious.
