And the 2013 award for "best rant by a Patriots' spouse after a season-ending loss" goes to........Anna Burns Welker.
Last year, Tom Brady's wife Gisele Bundchen told a group of heckling Giants fans following Super Bowl XLVI that her "husband can not (effing) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time."
After New England's 28-13 loss to Baltimore in Sunday night's AFC title game, the wife of Patriots receiver Wes Welker went on the offensive against the Ravens' Ray Lewis on Facebook.
As the slightly blurry screengrab shows, Burns Welker decided she'd detail some of the non-football related background of Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who will end his lengthy career with an appearance in Super Bowl XLVII in two weeks.
"Proud of my husband and the Pats," Burns Welker wrote. "By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis' Wikipedia page. 6 kids, 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!"
For accuracy's sake, I'll point out that Lewis did not have four wives, as he has never been married. As for the rest of her statement, there are always plenty of harsher things written about Lewis on Twitter or Facebook after every Ravens playoff win. They just usually don't come from family members of fellow NFL players.
She is bitter
