08:00 AM ET 01.22 | It didn't take long for Anna Burns Welker to back away from her harsh words. Less than a day after criticizing retiring Ravens star inside linebacker Ray Lewis via a Facebook post, the wife of New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker has issued an apology. Anna Burns Welker's mea culpa followed her posting the following rip job regarding the retiring former NFL Defensive Player of the Year: "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!" ... [Anna Burns Welker] released an apology statement through Larry Brown Sports.

Representing all Hooters bimbos. Can't even get her facts straight.

It's even a bigger crime to repost what this nobody lady has to say.

Is it Uncle Ray Ray's fault that her husband isn't a "cocksman" ?

January 22, 2013  08:05 AM ET

If I were Welker, I would be cognizant of the fantasies his wife is obviously having with Uncle Ray Ray.

I don't know why she issued an apology- everything she said were facts.

January 22, 2013  08:07 AM ET

The internet is in ink.

That's an approriate name in this instance, Anita "Burns" Welker.

Everything? Got acquitted, yes but I didn't know Ray Lewis has 4 wives.

After she issued the apology, she was asked if she was going to post anything else, and she replied, "Nevermore."

6 kids by 4 different wives I believe- if we can beleive ESPN. And I'm not sure if he was aquitted- I believe they lowered the charges to conspiracy by cell phone and so he got probation or public service despite the fact that he was a major player in the murder. If he hadn't been a professional football player he would still be sitting in a cell somewhere...

Jeesh, get over it. It's getting old. You weren't there. You sound a lot like the Patriots wives that moan, **** and make excuses for their husband's shortcomings. One more thing, Ray Lewis has never been married.

January 22, 2013  08:18 AM ET

Mrs. Welker would do well to return to what she does best. "Do you want curly fries with those wings?"... Making comments about opposing players when you're pissed because your hubby dropped several crucial passes isn't working out well for her. BTW Lewis isn't currently and never has been married and his six children were all at the game watching.

He has 6 children, by 4 different women, but I'm not sure any of them were married to him.

And neither were you- if the dude wasn't a freakish athlete he would be in prison, and that is the overall issue with him and the other thugs that get away with more crap just because they are players. Those same crimes committed by your average thug who could only run the 40 in 4.5 instead of 4.4 ends up in prison.....

He was charged with obstruction of justice. By definition this means he might have knowledge of the event but refused to talk about it. Contrary to what people love to think, he did not murder anyone. He might know what happened but has refused to talk about it. Big difference there.

The obstruction charge was what the charge was dropped to after negotiating, the original allegations and charges were conspiracy charges- meaning he had more than a passing knowledge of what happened.

She just wanted to be like Gisele. Then somebody reminded her that she isn't a supermodel and nobody cares.

You talking about a player with a tainted past? You are a Cowboys fan! You team draft players with criminal records and your fans praise them like GODS!
