    Robert Alvarez

    A second stint of catching passes for the New England Patriots appears to be over before it even begins for tight end Benjamin Watson.

    Man, I feel so bad for TB...and us!!

    This guy works so freaking hard to build relationships, stay healthy, WORK AT A DISCOUNT to bring in talent!!...

    And he has very few options to throw to.
    The years are coming quick.

    Injuries happen, but you have to keep more guys he trusts.
    You can see the frustration in his pressers.

    I understand the AB thing, he was cancer.
    Hopefully Dorsett gats back soon

    Surely Bill cannot be serious about entering November with only LaCost & Izzo as our TEs...
    We're not boarding any duck boats with those two...or that LT...or with Meyers as our #4 WR (last chance for him to impress is tomorrow night), never mind our #3...

    Leave the coaching to BB. He's pretty good at it, kay?

    This is a sad story. Feels to me that BB crapped on Watson, quite unnecessarily. For instance, do we really need a third quarterback on the roster who NEVER is going to see the field?

    Cap room for a later move. That's the only way this makes makes any sense. If Watson were a quadruple amputee, it would still be worth putting him out there ahead of the current TEs.

    We'll see if this "later move" -- whatever it might be -- is worth it, but I'd hate seeing them give much away for a partial-season rental. Perhaps there's a chance Watson is back.

    It’s way too early to give up on Stidham, just because of one blunder in his first outing. I’m surprised you would suggest it.

    He apparently moved his family back up to the New England area so it's really unfortunate this happened.

    Also is a one of the nicest guys according to a buddy of mine who works at NFLPA and have met him numerous times.

    I hate this decision, was looking forward to Ben getting passes from TB in the RZ where team has struggled. Ben is such a class act too.

    I won't pretend to question the GOAT coach though, he obviously knows what he's doing.

    Re-read my post. Stidham is the No. 2 quarterback. I was referring to Kessler, the No. 3 (unnecessary) QB -- hence my reference to a third quarterback who never will see the field yet is occupying a roster spot.

    Bizarre to not have Watson on the roster.

    I brought this point up in the Watson thread and was told by @DaBruinz that Kessler actually dressed for the Jets game which I was not aware of. In looking at the Game book for that game, Kessler was not listed, so idk. He was also signed on 9/25 and Jets game was on 9/22. Kessler was not active for Bills or Washington games.

    Watson is a very good man on and off the field..

    Suspect this was more about salary cap issues than anything else, need some flexibility in this annual war of attrition..

    Look, @QuantumMechanic -- enough with the drive-by disagrees without explaining yourself. We've gone seasons before with only Brady and a rookie QB on the roster. Why do you think Kessler is so worth a roster spot vs. someone like Watson? All he's doing is running the scout team in practice, he's never going to play in a game ahead of Stidham.
