There’s obviously something more to it,” Watt said on Thursday, vía ESPN. “I don’t think that it’s what people may think it is because, quiero decir, you look at the roster, and you look at the guys that are there — I mean it’s been so massively turned over that there’s only a handful of guys that are even there from last year that I played with.

“Asi que, it’s not like, Soy como, 'Oh, I want to go and beat my old team’ or ‘Oh, I can’t wait to face this guy,’ because it’s not the same team. It’s not the same organization that I remember and that I was a part of.'

Vatio, who played 10 seasons with the Texans, asked to be released by the team back in February before signing with Arizona. Ahora, as a member of the undefeated Cardinals (6-0), Watt has a legitimate chance to win his first Super Bowl title. With Houston, Watt won four AFC South titles, but now the 1-5 Texans don’t havemany guysWatt knows.

That’s why it hurts me to see where it is now because I believe those fans deserve to be living those high times and to be experiencing those great moments, and it hurts to know that they’re not and to know that they’re struggling,” Watt said. “Asi que, I hope that they get back there at some point, and I hope that they get to do that because I know first-hand it’s an unbelievable place to play when you’re rolling.
