Ray Lewis says he forgives Wes Welker’s wife Anna Burns for ripping him

After the Baltimore Ravens defeated the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, Wes Welker’s wife took to Facebook to blow off some steam. She did so in the form of ripping Ray Lewis for not being a very good role model. Anna Burns Welker later regretted what she posted, and she issued an apology to Lewis and the Ravens for the things she said. On Monday, Lewis said he accepts.

“I’ve always been a firm believer of the Good Book, and the Good Book always confirms, even a fool is counted wise until he opens he or she mouth,” Lewis told reporters, via ESPNBoston.com. “And sometimes people just say silly stuff. And they say it out of emotion. And sometimes you need to let the game take care of the game. We lost up there last year, and I didn’t hear one teammate say anything about nobody there because we have respect for that team, that they won it fair and square.

“So for her to come out and say what she said, listen, I truly forgive her, and I have no hard feelings against her at all, but I believe people just make mistakes and say foolish things sometimes.”

Some of the things Burns Welker said may be factually inaccurate, but a lot of people agree with what she wrote. The NFL has painted Lewis as a hero and a role model, and there are far better role models in football. But as Gisele Bundchen will tell you, sometimes it’s better for the wives to remain quiet than to make comments their husbands are going to have to deal with.

Anna Burns Welker apologizes for comments about Ray Lewis

Anna-Burns-Wes-WelkerLike all of the other friends, family and fans of the New England Patriots, Wes Welker’s wife was frustrated with the outcome of the AFC Championship Game on Sunday night. Earlier, we shared with you some comments Anna Burns Welker made on her Facebook page about Ray Lewis after the Baltimore Ravens beat the Patriots 28-13 in Foxboro.

On Monday afternoon, Burns apologized for what she said about the Ravens linebacker.

“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook,” Burns 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.”

We saw the type of backlash that arose when Gisele Bundchen made some derogatory comments after the Super Bowl last year. While we tend to agree with Burns that Lewis is a poster boy for the NFL despite not being a great role model, you can understand why she felt the need to clear the air.

Tom Brady and Gisele vacation with Wes Welker, Anna Burns in Costa Rica

Wondering how Tom Brady and Wes Welker would get along after Gisele ripped the Patriots’ receivers for dropping passes in the Super Bowl? Apparently they’re doing just fine.

X17 Online published several photos of Tom and wife Gisele on vacation at their home in Costa Rica. The Boston Herald points out that Wes Welker and his fiancee, Anna Burns, also joined them.

Brady is the one wearing the black cap in the picture while Welker has a white cap. Typically we wouldn’t think too much about a vacation, but this is significant because it shows things appear to be fine between Brady and Wes. Welker is a free agent and expected to receive a franchise tag from the Patriots.

Wes Welker Reportedly Engaged to Anna Burns

Wes Welker and Anna Burns have been together for more than two years, and the two reportedly are engaged. The Boston Herald, which has very few details, says Welker recently popped the question. They say Anna asked Wes for a love bracelet for Christmas, but at the advice of Tom Brady, Weezy got her a ring.

The public has been given a taste of their relationship through tweets shared by Wes recently. He shared a picture of them celebrating Christmas together (pictured), and one of him serving her breakfast in bed (on a paper plate).

Wes Welker Served His Girlfriend a Breakfast Burrito in Bed … on a Paper Plate

Wes Welker scored some major sensitivity points with his female fans by tweeting a picture of himself serving his girlfriend breakfast in bed Monday. One problem: It didn’t take long for everyone else to clown him for serving it on a paper plate. Welker also said he made her a breakfast burrito, and he of course took heat for how small the bed looks.

Now for those of you who are curious, Welker’s girlfriend is Anna Burns, who was the 2005 Miss Hooters International. She apparently gave Wes permission to post the picture, and then the two made eggplant Parmigiana and Caesar salad for dinner:
