The SWatt Team
 
Did anyone else hear the story the announcers were telling about JJ Watt playing volleyball twice a week to get his pass defend timing down?

I was thinking to myself "Now thats a great idea." Reminded me of Antonio Gates and his basketball career.

Also, I much prefer this nickname to "Bulls on Parade." Just putting my two cents in. What say you?

I believe JJ himself in an interview made the comment about playing volleyball at the YMCA, but later laughed it off as a joke.. I was under the impression that the whole thing was just a joke

I would prefer The SWatt Team infinitely more than Bulls On Parade. I would prefer anything to BOP but The SWatt Team is a good name on it's own. Not sure what the other 10 guys think though...lol.

Maurice Jones-Drew managed 5 yards a carry, but the Jaguars couldn’t feed him like they wanted to because they were 0-for-9 on third down and held the ball for just 16:43.

Not a misprint. Jacksonville’s time of possession was 16:43.

“They have really, really nice benches here,” Watt said of the real estate he occupied for most of the afternoon. “They have shade and they have cooling. So it was awesome that our offense could hold the ball for so long because it was relaxing over there.”

JJ is quickly becoming my favorite texan

Should read S'Watt Squad. FYI

Let's see if this swat team gains any traction.

I dunno...that name doesn't say anything about the defense as a whole.

Texans fans trying to nickname the defense all-time tally:

Attempts: 1,426,347,864
Nicknames: 1 and nobody liked it anyway

Yeah, I have never been a fan of "Bulls on Parade" as I hate the band Rage Against the Machine who came out with that song years ago y the same name. So I already didn't like the song and band and IMO, it seemed an obvious choice and therefore "un original" if you will.

I'm not too sure about the "SWatt Team" either but maybe that will grow on me. I heard JJ doesn't like to be called JJ SWatt as he feels it makes him sound one dimensional (they mentioned that on 610 yesterday so that is my source on that).

Now THAT'S funny as hell! And true. +rep to you Sir.

Oh, and yeah, I prefer the SWatt Team to BOP. Actually, I would prefer anything to that damn horrid nickname I won't actually spell out.

Fact. Things need to be organic.

Next, we will see A. Smith bounding through the air and kicking the pass away ninja-style.

LOL.

It's getting kind of ridiculous, much like what Rockets fans/announcers are doing. Bill Worrell and Matt Bullard try to pin nicknames on every single player on the roster, and fans follow suit.

Let's not do that. :toropalm:

The Texans Facebook page last week had a pic of cushing and watt swatting balls down and asked the question about better nickname. BOP or the swatt team

.
My internet is down at home so can't link right now

Interesting arT. I believe Sunday they said the texans led the league last year with 31 batted balls down in 2011. So far I think jj has 5 by himself and I think a couple more are added by the team. Not a bad start to 2012

Re: The SWatt Team
 
I like the idea of S'Watt team as a JJ Watt fan club kind of deal, not not overall for this defense.
