Well at least he is a clog the middle guy; no wait 20 combined tackles.. wrong again.
We might be focusing on the big dollars needed to re-sign JJ when we should think about who we place around him to make rings more available. To me a good nose and an ILB would be a huge start.
Absolutely. I have to admit though that he does hustle after running backs down field. Of course that's not what you want from your starting DT.
We went through basically the same thing for the last ten years with Andre Johnson. I guess we haven't learned from that mistake. We need someone next to Watt who is good enough to stop teams from double and triple teaming him. Poor Watt is going to end up just like Andre. A great player that just never really reaches his potential because of lack of support around him.
