There’s obviously something more to it,” Watt said on Thursday, attraverso ESPN. “I don’t think that it’s what people may think it is because, intendo, 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.

“Così, non è come, Sono come, '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.'

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. “Così, 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.
