Patriots receiver thinks on his feet



New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker had some fun with New York Jets coach Rex Ryan's reported foot-fetish today in his responses to questions during a news conference.

Welker, whose team plays the Jets in this weekend's divisional round of the playoffs, uses the words 'foot', 'feet,' or 'toes' in answers to 10 of 15 questions. Among them:

+ Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis "has good feet.''

+ Patriots receiver Deion Branch 'is another guy with great feet.''

+ Patriots quarterback Tom Brady makes sure "everybody is putting their best foot forward.''

You can view video from the news conference, as well as a transcript, at

Deadspin, as you might remember, previously posted four videos of a woman presumed to be Ryan's wife showing and talking about her feet to an off-screen cameraman who sounds a lot like Ryan.
