Wes Welker Postgame Press Conference - 12/12/2010

Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker addresses the media during his postgame press conference on Sunday, December 12, 2010.

On playing in these conditions
"I think you just need to bring a certain type of attitude in this type of weather and make sure that you're on top of your game and don't let the elements distract you and really bring it that much more. For me, it was about getting my mindset right that we were going to go out there and make plays and move the ball and, especially early in the game and try and get up on these guys, which we were able to do, and try and get the victory."

On both him and Deion Branch getting over 100 yards
"I was hoping I would go over 100 yards. It seems like I've come so close a few times. That's good to hear, but actually having Deion out there is such a huge help for us. The strides he's made for our offense is very substantial in what he's been able to do, and with Tom (Brady) having trust in him and, us just going out there and just spreading the ball around, and just everyone going out there and making plays. At the end of the day, that is what it's all about."

On what it means to clinch a playoff berth with today's win
"It doesn't mean much. We're still just playing football, and that's what it's all about. We're enjoying showing up to work and working hard and practicing hard and getting ready for the next game."
