We all deal with disappointment in various ways. For Wes Welker's wife, Anna Burns, the best way to deal with a big loss is to trash Ray Lewis

At least, that's what she seems to have done on her Facebook page after the Patriots lost in the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens. 

Big Lead Sports reports on some vitriol coming from the wife of the Patriots' star receiver. Here is a screen grab given to them by one of their readers. 

While a little blurry, the capture shows the following statement:

Proud of my husband and the Pats. 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!

While Burns' Facebook account is private, we will go ahead and bite on this post, because we know how personal things can get among loved ones and their athlete husbands. 

Hell, Burns was somewhat on the other side of things when Tom Brady's wife and model, Gisele Bundchen, ripped Wes Welker for dropping a pass in 2012's Super Bowl. 

So perhaps she was following a lead set for her a year prior, or perhaps she was already having a bad day. 

Either way, Burns noticed the incessant coverage of Ray Lewis and snapped. 

For those uninitiated, Lewis was arrested and charged with the murder of Richard Lollar and Jacinth Baker back in 2000. The charges, however, were later dropped and Lewis pleaded guilty to misdemeanor obstruction of justice charges and served a year of probation, via CBS Sports

Now let me continue by saying the next couple of weeks will be about two things, and two things only. Through ongoing Super Bowl coverage, we will be force-fed discussions of two brothers coaching against one another and of Ray Lewis. 

The star linebacker is playing in his final game, and it will be at the Super Bowl. 

Sports media outlets thirsty for great storylines will no doubt exhaust the one that fell in their lap. So get used to seeing Lewis and ubiquitous debate surrounding him and his legacy. 

As for Lewis, he will continue to answer for his past, especially at a moment when he brings his career to an emotional conclusion. 

USA Today reminds us that Lewis has never been married, and that comments like this are common among all corners of social media. 

This isn't the last time Lewis' past will be drudged up, but we hardly thought it would come from Wes Welker's wife.


Hit me up on Twitter for more NFL nonsense.
