    No offense to my fellow Pats fans, but I still haven't seen solid proof that the ball went through the end zone on the Bailey/Watson play.

    This is the closest replay to seeing the flight path of the ball near the pylon.....and it's still inconclusive. I tend to think the ball flew just in front of it.

    :33 seconds...the ball is in his right hand at the 2yd line and Watson hits him.

    He'd always try and catch with body...and often bounced off.
    Freakish athlete.
    Smart guy.
    Dukie turned Bull Dog.
    I'd take him back...

    Yes it was, though it also lasted for only 2 seasons (2005-06), and Watson's early-career struggles with ball-catching might've reduced the combo's overall productivity.

    Yeah, he would ramble wildly and seek contact occasionally. Mostly he blocked, though. I would say, even with Watson's speed, the 2 of them morphed together weren't as good as a healthy Gronk.

    One other interesting (to me) bit of trivia about Ben Watson: He played 15 years in the NFL, and never got cut. He signed five contracts (with the Pats, Browns, Saints, Ravens, & Saints again) and played every one of them out. Rare, especially for a guy who bounced around teams.

    I forgot he was across the field and got Bailey. He ran the hypotenuse of the triangle. Ran like 120 yards and caught an elite fast CB in Bailey.
