FOXBORO – Bill Belichick watched star receiver Wes Welker crumple to the Reliant Stadium field on Sunday, blowing up his knee on a cut he makes all the time.
The Patriots [team stats] coach had no qualms yesterday about slamming the natural-grass surface on which it happened.
“It’s terrible,” Belichick said during his weekly appearance on WEEI radio. “One of the worst fields I’ve seen. For the level of play we have, I think consistency of field should be priority number one, when you talk about player safety.”
