Will Tom Brady's opponents ever learn? It's not smart to give the New England Patriots any extra motivation.
Apparently, J.J. Watt did just that during pregame warmups in Foxborough on Sunday afternoon.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Watt "spit on the Patriots logo in the middle of the field at Gillette Stadium during pregame warmups."
While the Defensive Player of the Year front-runner is likely amped to enact his revenge on the offense that hung a 42-spot on his club in Week 14, there's no place for such a blatantly disrespect act.
Just because Watt accumulated 20.5 sacks, had 81 tackles and batted 16 passes in 2012 doesn't mean he has the right to spit on the Patriots' logo.
If anything, the second-year pro should still be extremely humble.
Unfortunately, he's not.
It's hard to measure how much this alleged spitting incident will affect the game from a psychological standpoint, but it certainly doesn't help the Texans in any way.
For such a dominant and deservedly confident player, not the brightest move.
