PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK: Its time for Tom vs. the Texans


This year, he's admitted to wanting to spend more time with his family and in this episode, Brady's seen at the Al Udeid Air Base in Doha Qatar.

"I'm going with the Packers to win rather handily against the Bears at Lambeau Field, 34-17".

For all he's done, the Patriots have managed to minimize the damage Watt has inflicted upon them since he entered the league as a first-round draft pick out of Wisconsin in 2011: 24 tackles with one-half sack in six games (although he did have six tackles, three for loss and hit Brady twice last September). Some of it was my approach.

'I think anytime you're together with people for a long period of time, relationships ebb and flow, ' Brady said. But I was just thinking to myself, 'This is a insane sight that I'm looking at here.' So he hit the ball and then his caddie kind of walked over there and gave him a hand and helped him back up this cliff that he was a few feet down on, or below.

Don't talk to Tom Brady unless it's about football. I just want to focus on what I want to do and be a great football player for this team and try and be a good example in the locker room and provide great leadership. I'm learning to do deal with it better'. Maybe he can guilt whoever the fantasy owner is into trading Brady to him without having to give up much. But I was just thinking to myself, 'This is a insane sight that I'm looking at here'.

Vegas and many National Football League experts are not predicting a win for the Houston Texans in Week 1, but it isn't because the roster isn't talented and not because they don't have any superstars.

Brady would be 46 years old if he plays five more years. How about three-time Defensive Player of the Year, J.J. Watt. "It will be a challenge for me". "It's f-- going to be hard to do".

"I've had a few experiences where I haven't been out there, and I haven't liked those very much", he said. "He does multiple things, not only with his arm but with his athletic ability where you see him scrambling, you think the defensive line gets him and somehow he gets his way out of it. ..."

In early August, reports surfaced that the Patriots had restructured Brady's contract to make it richer with performance incentives. Not only does Watson have Comeback Player of the Year aspirations after his torn ACL, many expect Watson to compete for MVP this season.

Brady skipped voluntary workouts this offseason, his first time doing so, in order to better enjoy time off with his wife and children.

'And I think I'm not ready to say that I'm done, because I don't feel like I am. "I mean, those things are still very enjoyable for me and there's no place I'd rather be Sunday afternoon than 1 o'clock, playing here and playing well".

"Those guys are top at what they do and those are guys we're really going to have to get focused on and get blocked in the passing and running game because those are guys that can wreck games and wreak havoc. So you can't really be too focused on one".
