Default Body Language - JJ Watt

Does anyone know if there was something wrong with JJ Watt this weekend like allergies/sick/etc? Was he listed for anything on the injury list? After his first hit on the QB early after that he went pretty much numb, and that's really concerning.

Also concerning he didn't even record a single tackle in the game. What happened to all the swatted passes? 20/20/20? He sure has built a great brand but he isn't nearly as dominant as he was last season. Of course I understand he's getting double-teamed a lot more now but he used to at least get his hands up to swat balls.

The way Watt is going he won't even hit double digits on sacks by year end, so this up coming offseason will work out good for resigning him to a new contract as he and his agent will be bargaining with much less leverage as compared to what it would have been like after the '12 season.

Funny, Seth Payne said he thinks JJ is being even more dominant this year.

He also says Schaub is not a good qb and not likely to get this team where they want to go.

Funny I've never seen you bring that up.

As far as watts body language, it's not just him. When you're getting embarrassed at home by a team that most think isn't that great you sulk a little. It's human nature.

Surely not after yesterdays peformance ?
Nevertheless, the stats aren't there as they were last fyear, and few factors have as much to do with compensation in the NFL as stats, whether it's pics for DBs, TDs/yards-completed for WR, or sacks for Dlineman.
Trust me, at this rate Watt won't be as expensive for the Texans as he could have been.

He got in the backfield a few times but whiffed on the running back. I think he had more missed tackles than tackles yesterday. But he was getting penetration, so the notion that he isn't winning battles is silly. He just didn't finish. It would be nice to see someone else take advantage of the fact that they're getting less attention because of all the extra attention paid to Watt and maybe HELP OUT. Make an offense pick their poison.

Teams are getting away with chipping, double and triple teaming Watt because the remainder of our front can be blocked one on one. Long didn't need any help with Mercilus. Saffold (iirc) had the day off blocking Reed

Our entire defense was bad..very bad.

Or unblocked. Brooks Reed is just too slow to get there.

He absolutely is. Not much he can do with two guys chipping away at him every play. And he's still getting some good penetration. It's up to to the other guys to win their one-on-one battles.

So far this season the Texans have faced 137 passing attempts.

At this point in 2012 they had faced 205 passing attempts.

That combined with the Texans not putting the opponents in obvious passing situations is limiting his opportunities.

Hard to get batted balls and sacks when the other teams don't have to throw in the 2nd half. He does have 3 swats which is still tied for the league lead from a DL. He's not going to get 20. Teams will prepare for that. I think he's been a factor and while maybe not as dominant as last year I'm not really concerned with his play. The schemes and play calls are beating us. I think we're too undisciplined and that's hurting us. Statistically we're still the #1 D in the NFL by a large margin, but I don't think there's a person on the planet that actually thinks we are the best right now. We don't get the stops when we need them. We have talented players that aren't in the correct position to make the plays.

nothing wrong with JJ, He and Brooks Reed are the only guys on the team i believe who have only known making the playoffs. As a motor guy seeing double teams constantly & watching this team implode, he's just frustrated.

JJ is getting an incredible amount of attention. Problem is, nobody else is beating their man enough. When you take the double teams from the edge rushers and nobody can get to the QB, then your edge rushers are garbage.

Let's be clear here, I'm not talking about JJ's performance I'm talking about his body language and if he was really into the game yesterday at all? Seems like once we went down 10-0, they were out of the game.

Over the course of the game we normally see.

- JJ interacting with the crowd during commercial timeouts
- JJ pumping and up and getting his teammates going.
- JJ's normal intensity and mean streak coming through.

He didn't seem to have any of that yesterday at all. We didn't even see that from Antonio Smith at all either, very odd game from a defensive standpoint.

I agree but is that the players or wade not scheming to take advantage of the situations? I thought wade was known for his exotic and confusing blitz packages? I guess they are only exotic and confusing to our defense.

He's getting penetration like every other play it seems like. The stats aren't there, but watt looks better than he did last year. He looks more explosive. But he's got more bodies hanging off of him trying to keep him from making plays.

I distinctly remember two instances yesterday where watt blew the play up and Cushing and Antonio were the benefactors.

My seats are on the field...the Rams Oline is what what happened to JJ. Those guys were huge and I mean all of them. Those guys average 6'5" and 315. I think Dahl was the smallest one and he isn't small at all. Their oline was just to good because I really didn't know much about those little RBs they had but they got it done.
