If you're a Patriots fan, you awakened Thursday morning to news your team had traded for Albert Haynesworth and went to bed contemplating the idea that Chad Ochocinco would be joining him in New England. For a lot of fan bases, that might be cause for a sleepless night. All deals still need to be finalized, but are Patriots fans worried? Judge for yourself.

Who is more likely to hurt?

Will controversy erupt about Haynesworth taking plays off or Ochocinco complaining about his touches? Or will it be smooth sailing ahead?


Who is more likely to help?
