Welker: Brady “the toughest metrosexual I’ve ever come across”


Tom Brady’s fashionable enough you probably won’t see him wearing much white after Labor Day.

But when he showed up with a white bandage to protect his bloodied nose after Sunday’s win at Tennessee, the celebrity quarterback made himself fair game for teammates.

He’s such a good-looking guy,” Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said. “Obviously, he gets banged up, and he’s probably the toughest metrosexual I’ve ever come across.”

Brady didn’t miss a snap after getting sacked by Kamerion Wimbley, and joked after the game “I need some scars.”

“Any time you see your leader out there, going out there and taking hits like that and everything else,” Welker said. “You ask him if it’s broken. He doesn’t know, and he doesn’t care. He loves football, and he loves playing. He does a great job.”

That doesn’t mean they won’t tease him unmercifully.

    Wow. That’s quite the disturbing double entendre there, Wes.

    lol. Not a pats fan but Welker cracks me up.

    Welker must have a map of Brady’s backside just to insure there’s no part he fails to kiss.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

    Is that supposed to be a joke or some kind of backhanded compliment? If Welker was having some fun at Brady’s expense, the humor was lost in translation a little.

    Brady must’ve said something about Welker’s hair plugs.

    Welker’s 3 receptions for 14 yards might be season highs at this rate…

    ROFL look at the Patriots fans getting upset with Welker’s joke!

    Whoopy doo. Big Ben had his nose folded over one side of his face from an unflagged hit against the Ravens and never missed a snap. Brady is a puss.

    “He’s such a good-looking guy,” Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said.

    Personally, I would have never said that about another man!!!! Makes me wonder about Welker…

    If you’ve ever had a broken nose then you knew right away that was no broken nose. He got a little scratch & some of his holy blood leaks out & all of a sudden he’s the toughest QB on the planet. Listen, Tom Brady is great & they kicked the Titans ass, but that was just a little booboo. Enough of the ballwashing.

    Welker is hillarious.

    And yes Brady is the toughest metrosexual on earth.

    One of my buds is a bonafied metrosexual, ya know, the type of man who gets a manicure and uses moose in his hair.

    Let me tell you, he’s about as tough as a jelly donut.

    Brady is an anomaly, for sure.

    Okay, I’m ready for Wes to be traded. Let’s get a R1 for him while he’s still perceived to be useful.

  13. mazblast says: Sep 11, 2012 11:24 AM

    As if no QB ever has ever gotten a scratch on his nose. Man up, pretty boy.

  14. rabidbillsfan says: Sep 11, 2012 11:36 AM

    Gotta be honest, Brady has mellowed a bit since the ’07 season. I still hate him, but I can respect him becasue he’s not making stupid statements like “We’re only going to score 17 points?” He also owns the fact that it is him carrying this team, without really saying it. BB this, and BB that, without Brady, this team would be pretty bad. Hey Rodney Harrison, maybe learn a thing or 20 about class, you know, from the guy who got you your rings?

    OMG, a bloody nose! And he came back into the game. The stuff of legend.

  16. dukemarc says: Sep 11, 2012 12:42 PM

    Sean Avery disagrees. He’s tougher by far and better at being a metrosexual than Brady.

  17. rc33 says: Sep 11, 2012 1:49 PM

    Sean Avery is of no consequence.
    97% of American sports fans have no idea who he is.

  18. noahbird says: Sep 11, 2012 3:10 PM

    Throw Welker the ball.

  19. onbucky96 says: Sep 11, 2012 3:58 PM

    Wes Welker, the next aging Wide Out to run his mouth then get run out of town. Enjoy playing in STL or J’ville next season loser.

  20. coreydemoss says: Sep 11, 2012 7:41 PM

    This is obviously just good-natured ribbing. Anybody calling for Welker to be traded or saying Brady is never going to throw him the ball has obviously never been in a group of dude friends. This is what you do; you poke fun of each other, and Welker was funny while doing it.

    And to the guy who said he’d never say another guy is good looking: Frankly, that seems a lot more suspicious than what Welker said. It’s kind of ridiculous to think that only gay people recognize when someone of the same sex is attractive.

    Have you never wanted to hit on a girl, seen the guy already talking to her and given up because you realize he’s better looking than you? That’s the same thing.

    “tallest midget” kind of comment.

  22. patsfiend says: Sep 12, 2012 7:57 PM

    Left out the part in the interview afterwards where Welker said, “I kid, I kid!”

  23. rushmatic says: Sep 13, 2012 12:46 PM

    People are so weird. Nothing was lost in the translation — Welker is always amusing. Brady is a TOUGH SOB, regardless of this story. Yes, the Pats are probably better than your team. Get over it.

    This story is hilarious and exactly the kind of stuff NE fans read every day. It’s so surprising to fans of other franchises, but not so much here.
