3-D and C storm coming in this afternoon and our conversation Donte' Stallworth is brought to you by DCU digital federal credit union in DC you say you -- -- cup Lansky insurance. They joins us on the AT&T. Line morning -- John Jerry Kirk here in Boston like ridiculous and time. -- as you watched in real time the Welker block on to lead what was your immediate visceral reaction to that particular plate didn't even raise a flag for you -- On no because I'd rather play over. I'm not be closed. On you know my. The number of different -- on it he abruptly 401 being a home I've been told you know. Fifty run that play. The way you ran and I think -- be the alone anything. The out of the ordinary people out. I've been in I've been in practice and in games where all the secret to each other war bomb unit that you that the typical play wait wrote -- go. Okay when they draw up the rub play or the pick play what is the receiver in this case Welker is duties and responsibilities in that place. What ultimately do what is indeed it is -- -- -- -- -- usually. -- -- And he's he's sitting there or. The other -- that it was on the coming and coming across the field. Now what it witnessed -- do. It's important that runs and five yards and he he he is primary. Job that you. Is. To make sure that he's -- -- black people coming across on -- with and who. Almost literally rub shoulders with the guy. And making with -- with -- -- Clinton made. In this treaty was may lead go over a couple of ways -- view him. Figured there you 88 an avenue opened at the ball and what they call what they call ahead. Didn't -- it looks football because if you happen to conduct a primary receiver he's the second day -- -- are. Our primary target so what does not make it -- -- -- go over the top of the ball it up there so we can't come down and make the play. I've watched the play date time and I it's typical -- acting in a million times. And if you if if you've been reading. You can see where it is it that -- you can see in their knee. And you can see also to -- people that the players are also. In that same -- To not go. So what we were trying to do and I guarantee you African. What do you could people -- was was because of every coast in the coasted into the Clinton. Vehicle. And that separation between it has been here. And and -- -- so it didn't if they come under way. -- got 20 with the top. And that is why they liked it -- That the west front of him trying to take him out on my accepting that are seeing that -- -- -- -- that randomly. I've I've seen -- where -- to receive that ran into each other because they've they've tried to get so close to the -- each other on the and I've -- -- where it happens -- like what happened on. I doubt that the as you know Euro former coach Bill Belichick said that. He thinks -- -- tried to hurt to leave because the one of the worst plays he's ever seen which is absurd and and you wrote you tweeted. That Belichick knows that he knows that that's not the case like why then did he say why did he make this ridiculous accusation against Wes Welker does -- just not like the guy. Well you know. Not in the position understand what was going on built mine the reason why -- actually today in India now updated. I have that little -- that Abiola when they played development down here. But I think that if you -- out there I was not on the sideline go out there after the game. After the game you know that if I don't -- looking. I didn't pull -- for him let. I've I've been I've been -- good old days that -- -- -- what -- game is an you know it can carry out here is happy. I don't want to hear that I did. -- home and -- an act that happened the ball game I I gave you a little while he will yeah because we know they've got game. Now -- -- realize that there is because people eat you know. What what the opposite job with the opposite. Job is -- to build these good job he's old boat. Understand. That -- job is to make big which he'd go up in that he opted to not allow that happen. -- He daughters I can't even I can lose you -- -- -- -- while it. On bush. We actually that was because. You know that he'll understand it the position that. -- -- it is genetic he was in and you don't want those unfortunately. -- -- that I'm back in the game I mean you know it was an important game but. And no point. You know what that. That to a degree and I and I -- -- eagle eyed populist -- You played firm twice -- if you as a player came out today after game and several Belichick said the Bob Welker he said you fellows -- deliberate play one of the worst plays ever seen for the repercussions have been. For you the player from Belichick the coach. Already they can -- an actor activists beaten because. Eight. You know it is. It yet people don't have a pretty good handle. In speaking with the media and -- I think that's something -- He'd probably -- frowned upon being the only into the armed or should we be interviewed on although although I -- we're going to be back and remove -- by one of the reporters opens up in England and we were simply talking about we recently asked about. Route one of Randy -- basket that was one -- we think we're there. And you know when there's so there featuring that you could make a and we got her out. So you. And the things I've always I've always thought and praised the way he handled things because a lot of work. And players -- the game and want so you avoid it could be but it did allow them as a coach and and I love that person I simply thought that he was wrong for same network deliberately try to keep. I Donte' Stallworth I assumed that Richard Sherman act would not play -- -- any Bill Belichick locker room. Your thoughts about -- is he said how he acted in what he set about Crabtree after the game -- championship game. Oh actually I didn't -- -- home and I saw that I did see. Those of you going crazy over what what was it sold in -- He comes. Well into the morning I was it was heated. And I mean this is yup -- -- the story out lap I -- I certainly thought it would lay. And but they've been publicly that he did. Was going to keep you know happy happy that it could you play. What you do everything. At ease and aren't doing less is a nineteen. On -- now either. Opposite -- where people come from him in the eighties. You know it is basically what we have -- com interviewed. On where you know there was a -- There's little. What are toward toward him but that argument a lot of racial and held. A home does not directly from Stanford and that -- could erupt about what it -- party tracks. And you know for people to -- -- it. At times in the leading players -- cut and when he hit -- where usually the basis for him and what people want to see normal want to see black law so. You know bird or you can come up pretty good -- on -- happy. Actively actively been hearing. After making probably the biggest play of the life and it came to the Super Bowl. People are tired and happy feet about and say he's trained -- -- you know they want they want to speak on mine but then when someone. You know like Richard Armitage. And -- actually way it is better yet he could let. I mean even in -- and that you and interview -- that is he didn't see anything wrong. Com you don't you I think that he was real honest it was wrong. Let you know -- that he probably could have known better let. But it but the way to get people going out bomb about and you know what -- how how he thought he did it. On these I I don't. Well whatever what -- what are your receiver would have for DB after stopping a pass. Did the double choke sign in your face would you say hey that's real Enron that's that's okay. But I don't know. I don't even I can do that and we're -- at all. I don't I don't think it would be accurate and it. A home I don't agree with him going Democrat -- they've even in the it is in the bureaucrat he did out. You know work in the offseason and it is -- -- it was reported economic all of it but you don't I. I won't let her years in the league Laporte problem that we. Are probably talk more trash and -- of -- -- foot. You know very important point I'm where you don't you don't. Expect a situation you know. You don't -- players -- -- actually believe -- -- a -- on what. To do but I I honestly I didn't see a whole lot home with. On the Indian -- -- look -- -- let's get beat him. Out and he people who put. Where it looked at liberty beating second. -- in seconds of the biggest play it right. Actor after that happened. I mean -- greeted me you don't you don't give it time we don't have chances. To compound -- -- and -- you thought that was real raw emotional right now with him. Going to Crabtree or -- the last group. You came here and 07 you're part of the greatest offense in NFL history at least until this year. That was something we can expect from Belichick he loaded up. And went forward and Brady. Showed that he could lead the way and put up two points and break all the records you -- is any chance that the patriots do that again before well before Brady is done they gonna get him some receivers like. Randy Moss Wes Welker like you or do you think we'll continue to just patch it together with a bunch of you know five foot ten inch slot guys. Well one I really hope that -- -- -- and I mean he. We've gotten so much for that organization in the past but we didn't bomb he. And I don't I'm not in the deep Dino. Regarding. -- or be the -- the people that these people that that you know you appreciate it -- -- That this kid I've been around them on people and artwork everything around. A great guy and obviously I thought somewhere where we're coming at a very some other than about -- Unplug -- they need to work on getting to increase. Albany. So I hope -- not I'll. They're able to. Hopefully. You've been pretty hopeful over. Poems. Who's up or we could see you laid out. I would love to see. That he'd probably be -- boldly and obviously you know next you're getting ground back I remember when. Well enough from when I'm -- if you will be traded for in the before the draft or around -- in 2007. And the interview directly was -- -- there at the beauty he would not have. He's he's he's the order of things secretly. You know how much he's always love to watch Brady. And how great article that accused the Peyton Manning -- and to isolate them and -- Brady -- And -- of these you know -- extra -- Brady what I'm able to be a lot at. He went to Google unfortunately we didn't finish the -- you want to but we know you know that are here. We were able explosive offenses. -- A -- before we let you go are you officially retired have you filed papers. -- known about this entire. I have a lot of things going on outside of well blowing up. I'm still trying to debate it bomb and try to -- to go this year what these playoffs that really. And do you want to retired again for another season but you know we'll be out next week. Thanks for taking the time two tours of duty of the patriots 20072012. -- we'll talk to down the road thanks for the time. Donte' Stallworth on the AT&T -- like and the AT&T -- our conversation with -- brought you by DC -- digital federal credit union -- in DCU's a view that -- -- insurance -- back your phone -- activists.
