The best trash talk in advance of the New York Jets’ NFL playoff game Sunday afternoon against the New England Patriots hasn’t come from the usual suspects, like the Jets’ Rex Ryan and Antonio Cromartie.
No, it’s from Patriot receiver Wes Welker, normally just a well-behaved foot soldier. Droll and deadpan at one of a hundred pre-game press conferences, Welker made fun of Coach Ryan’s widely publicized foot fetish.
Ryan’s not the only white guy with sole. Click the jump for the foot-fetish video starring Ryan and his wife, Michelle.
After Deadspin broke the video just before Christmas, Ryan and the team called it a “personal matter.” Uh-huh.
