"I think coming off an ACL people worry about, 'Is he going to (still) do it.' I think he's going to be the same guy, just a better passer and a quarterback because he has experience under his belt and he's been working".
The top overall pick in the 2014 draft finished previous year second in the National Football League with a career-high 21 tackles for losses, and his 9 1/2 sacks, 21 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles were also career bests. "Personally, I'm going to have a chip on my shoulder, but I think it's bigger than that". "They're incredible football players". I love the sport. And once you stop, you're done.
"I think it's just communication back and forth". I mean, football's fun for me. "Little things - I love practice, I love the meetings, I love focusing on an opponent, going out there with my guys and trying to figure out the best plan, and just the game of football". But, yeah, when I think of Tom, I think of situations like that. We're all going to be learning on the fly and we've got to build as the season goes.
The hard work ethic of Watt would also mesh well with the Patriot-way and would put Watt back on his path to one of the greatest defensive ends of all time. He was at the stadium nearly every day, watching film and talking to coaches and players to try and get better.
It's clear that Brady enjoyed his offseason and has no regrets about spending more time away from Gillette Stadium.
The last time these two teams squared off was in week three of the 2017 season.
Expect to see Brady put together another big year in 2018.
"I don't want to bring on any drama this year", quarterback Tom Brady told reporters on Friday after he was asked a question regarding Guerrero.
"They want to talk about a lot of drama and I'm sure a lot of teams have things like that, but ours is just to the 10th degree".
Brady says the past six months were the first time he's taken a break from what's become "cyclical monotonous" and that he and his family needed something different. There are five wide receivers on the roster, two of them added in the last five days.
"Really just one thing", he said. "Phillip (Dorsett) and Chris (Hogan) obviously I played a lot with them previous year, Cordarrelle (Patterson) is new and he's done some good things, obviously, the reason why he's here". Cordarrelle (Patterson's) new and he's done some good things, obviously, that's the reason he's here.
Although Brady has consistently said he wants to play until he's 45, there has been some speculation that he might call it quits before that. An early victory against New England would show the league that this Texans team not only can compete for a playoff spot, but it can be among the best in the AFC.
