Wes Welker’s wife Anna Burns rips Ray Lewis after Ravens beat Patriots

Anna-Burns-Wes-WelkerThe Baltimore Ravens defeated the New England Patriots to punch their ticket to Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday night, but the conclusion of the game has not resulted in the conclusion of smack talk. Terrell Suggs blasted the Patriots after the game and seemed beyond thrilled to knock them out of the postseason. Bernard Pollard ripped Tom Brady for sliding into Ed Reed with his cleats high.

On the New England side, it’s once again the wives who are doing the talking. Check out this message that Wes Welker’s wife, Anna Burns Welker, posted on Facebook after the game (via The Big Lead):

Wes-Welker-wife-Ray-Lewis

That’s certainly a fair point about the NFL treating Lewis like a role model, but didn’t Burns Welker learn anything from Gisele Bundchen’s comments about New England’s receivers after last year’s Super Bowl loss — in particular her husband?

Personally, I’m dreading having to listen to Ray Lewis for two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl. Is he one of the best linebackers to ever play the game? Absolutely, but his over-the-top drama can be too much to handle at times. Nevertheless, Lewis has earned the right to preach for 14 more days before his career comes to a close.

UPDATE: Burns Welker contacted us with an apology for her comments about Lewis:

“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook,” Burns Welker told Larry Brown Sports in a statement. “I let the competitiveness of the game and the comments people were making about a team I dearly love get the best of me. My actions were emotional and irrational and I sincerely apologize to Ray Lewis and anyone affected by my comment after yesterday’s game.

“It is such an accomplishment for any team to make it to the NFL playoffs, and the momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the accomplishments of both of these amazing teams.”

    Oh thank goodness! Someone finally has the cancelled checks that prove that Ray Lewis bought his way out of a murder charge! Can’t wait for you to post these to CNN for the world to see, Dick.

    Acquitted of murder: false. He pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice because the prosecution (rightly) could not make a case against him for murder.
    Paid off a family: Really? Can you please post the cancelled checks that you most certainly must have as proof that this happened?

  • sweatdog

    If Lewis wasn’t responsible, why’d he pay up? Yeah, that’s a sweet deal all right. Let’s tear your loved ones from your life and give you a few million to look the other way. Now who’s the one hatin’?

  • tater6

    what self defense if he couldn’t fight stay in the car until he got help like a lot of want to be cops that that can’t fight but want to be a tough guy from a REAL COP THAT NEVER SHOT A UNARMEDKID

  • sweatdog

    If my wife spoke the truth, I’d support her 100%, not make her publicly apologize to satisfy the media.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dan.higgins.5 Dan Higgins

    She’s 100 % correct- Ray Lewis is a thug.  he murdered those kid’s in Atlanta and paid 1 million to the family in a civil suit. He has many kids with many different mom’s… why does the NFL think this thug is a HERO ?  We will see Lewis again… in the arrest records.. count on it…

    Watching ESPN’s “First Take” television show this morning, I came to an interesting conclusion. While the comments of Wes Welker’s wife seem like sour grapes, she has a valid point. Though her husband’s team did not play as well as their opponents did on Sunday and lost as a result, I have always believed that Ray Lewis is a very poor role model, regardless of how great a football player he may be. I could never cheer for his team, nor will I ever consider him to be a Champion as a result of the issues he had earlier in his career.
    The discussion that Steve and Skip had referencing the comparisons between O.J. Simpson and Ray Lewis made me realize another important element. Although both individuals were found to be not guilty regarding their respective cases, O.J. was to a large degree tried and found guilty by the media, which made him guilty in the eyes of the public regardless of the outcome of the case. The attorneys for Ray Lewis were fortunate enough to keep most of the details of his case away from public scrutiny, making it much easier for many of the circumstances with his case to be forgotten by the public.
    Rightfully, many of the details will again be brought to the surface, now that he is once again on the grand stage that is the largest sports media event of the year. I have for years referred to the Baltimore Ravens team as “Suggs and Thugs”, and will be delighted when I am no longer forced to watch Ray Lewis perform his gestures before, during and after all Ravens football games. Perhaps the moral of the story is that a belief in God, along with a group of great attorneys, can overcome virtually any obstacle, and allow anyone an opportunity to be perceived as a great human being, Champion and role model.
    After further review, the bottom line is that there is no real difference between O.J. Simpson and Ray Lewis, as both of these individuals had been charged with murder, and were both acquitted of those charges. The most profound aspect of this discussion, however, could be that I, as a middle-aged and highly-educated Afro-American male with a legal background, am capable of being as objective, if not more so, than anyone else can be in coming to my conclusion.

    First and foremost, do any of you think that Ray Lewis gives two squirts of piss what you think about him as a person?  Ray Lewis is rich.  You, as well as I in comparison, are broke.  The man went to trial, was acquitted of any wrongdoing and moved on with his life.  Did he pay up for being a part of the whole thing, yes.  But that doesn’t mean he actually killed anyone.  Having your freedom taken away from you should be a changing point in your life.  Do you see him hanging with the same people?  No.  Has he given himself to God and now uses his voice to glorify God?  Yes.  Most of you who are out here hating on Ray Lewis are white and bitter.  For those of you who look like Ray Lewis, don’t forget that you look like Ray Lewis. Uncle Tom ass mofos. This is a new millenium people.  Black people can be tried and acquitted if a jury of their peers find they did nothing wrong.  If someone from your country ass family did something similar you’d be bitching about why they want leave them alone. 

    As for Wes Welker’s wife, her statements have some accuracy but they are full of hate because the Pats thought they were going to waltz over the Ravens.  I’m also pretty sure she didn’t like her hubby getting knocked around yesterday which is why her words came out like they did.  I personally can’t stand the Patriots.  Ever since they got caught cheating they haven’t won a Super Bowl.  Coincidence?  I think not.

    The white suit Lewis was wearing the night of the killings has never been found.  Doesn’t this give you a clue that Lewis was hiding something?  I mean the guy is a great player but geez.  Why make someone out to be a ROLE MODEL if you’re not absolutely sure that he did not commit a murder?  Would you really want your son to idolize this guy?  WOW!  I think it’s ignorant of you people that just want to pretend it didn’t happen.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/II6FAC3KJELBUIJV37Z5TW33QA Christian

    Just because he Plays Football well doesn’t mean he is a god!  He will definately get what he deserves.  That’s why he is acting like he is god fearing.  I would fear what god has in store for him.  I’m sorry but I just don’t buy in to this crap about being a role model.  He will never be a ROLE MODEL. And to tell you the truth I don’t think he is that great of a player.  Not many league LEADING defences in his 17 year career.  A Great player makes all of his teamates better meaning to be the BEST defense in the league.  How many #1 defenses does he have in his Career?  Look it up.

    The answer is 1.  Only ONE League Leading Defense in the last 17 years. That was in 2006.  Could you imagine that?

  • truthhurts99

    I take it none of you believe in redemption or forgiveness that shows your character.
    He was never charged with murder check your notes he was charged for lying 12 months probation $ 250,000 fine. Now back to his wives and children guess what he can afford it can you. Stop being such a hater god decides people fates not you morons. He’s one of the greatest Line backers in the NFL ,If you dont like it stop watching it. Get a life you ass holes god bless you all. 

  • Drawlbox

    So I guess you didn’t catch the sarcasm.

  • Jim Carroll

    Why the hell did she apologize?  She was right….if you want to buy into the baby mama culture that is up to you all.  If this is where our country is really headed, I am saddened.

    Remember he is a convicted felon.  That is a fact that none of you can deny.  I am sorry if you don’t understand what that means and you want to glorify this guy.  Sure he was a tremendous linebacker, but it is disgusting that our new culture glorifies this individual.

    I’m well aware of that.  The original contention is that he was “a man of God”.  “People” get married and divorced everyday.  Some get married and divorced and married and divorced and married and divorced. “Men of God” don’t.

    I don’t understand her need to bring up Lewis’ past. What’s that have to do with the Patriots losing and the Ravens winning? She messed up. She just comes off as a hot head. But you’re right, if she spoke the truth and it was relevant and had real reason. Then heck yeah. The 100% support is necessary. But what Welker’s wife did was unnecessary and classless.

  • roy casey

    I bet he is a better father then many married men, he seem to be very supportive with his kids. Being married dose not make a man a good father or a man of god. I’ll except him as a role model quicker then I will a lot of men who are married and cheating on there spouse and kids.
