PAT’S THOUGHTS:

I want to do it – but I just can’t.  Love Houston here.  Watson is the real deal at QB.  Congrats to you fantasy guys who picked him.  He may well carry you to a title.  He also played very well vs NE last year.  I’m also concerned about NE’s roster, as they lost a lot of talent during the offseason.  I won’t play it, because Belichek has taken more money out of my pocket than Uncle Sam, but Houston is the right side.
