Watt, a 3-4 DE leading his team in tackle? I find that to be mind boggling the most. Even if he didn't have all those sacks, swatted pass, and tfl. Leading his team in tackles at that position is unimaginable.
I don't think I could achieved those numbers in Madden if I were to customized my player with max attribute on all level. Simply ridiculous.

A player with stats like that in that position is equalvilent to a QB with 5000 yards passing, 55 tds, and 1000 yds rushing in the same season. Numbers if it were to ever achieved will never be duplicate. So let's enjoy this historic achievement everyone.

Nice sentiment, but you're forgetting Antonio Smith who needs a lot of props for his motor and play. At 31-years old, for a 3-4 DE he had his best season in 2012 with 7 sacks, 3 passes defended and and 2 forced fumbles.

So, to me, JJWatt, Antonio Smith and Kareem Jackson are our trifecta of guys that really pushed their play up a notch.

He had 1/2 a sack stolen by the refs on the "incomplete" pass by Luck.

You're right, and I never thought KJ would look as good at times as he has this year. Big improvement on his part.

And 1 on a "designed QB run play" against Miami.

i would say antonio was one of the few (along with GQ) that maintained their good standards from last yr... so by my count, you have 2 that improved, 2 that maintained and 9/10 (inc brice & demps that played worse)

dont even talk about offence though. DB, myers and maybe aj & od had better/same yrs. everybody else... worse.i will say arian ran tougher v the colts than ive seen in a while. hopefully he was saving himself for the playoffs

Statistically, I believe he is our best corner. Unfortunately that means that QBs pick on our 3rd CB which is Brandon Harris.

It bothers me that we kept Harris on the bench for so long. He needed reps early in the season and now we are relying on him and he is getting burned.

I don't expect Watt to have another season like this year, but even if he regresses to the mean, his mean is way above anyone else on our team.
