Default JJ Watt Press Conference (2:30pm central)

Didn't see a thread for this and people may not be aware of the press conference at 2:30 pm Central. Will be interesting to hear from the Watt, Wade, Smith, and Kubiak.

It's weird hearing Wade talk about the Texans, after years of hearing him all over the radio for the Cowboys here in the DFW area.

good interview with Watt saying all right things and Wade saying more options with Mario now but would go more into "standing up" later.

Loved Wade's humor. Most of all just have a much better feeling about someone on defense that knows what he's doing.

Default Re: JJ Watt Press Conference (2:30pm central)

Watt Press Conference:
 
Wade: I think a lot of you are saying the same thing: Wow I didnt realize he is that big. He is 6'6. Had largest hands at the combine--Just over 11. Wears size 16 shoe. Hes a big man. He'll get bigger.
 
Happy to be a Texan. Throw that out there.
 
Biggest adjustment from college level?
 
Seeing better competition everyday. This is the NFL..
 
Has it hit you yet?
 
Started to. When I started to land and saw the stadium, it hit me. Cant wait to make this city proud.
 
People used the word solid and ok. How would you respond?
 
Thats fine. I heard about the disappointed people too. Thats fine with me. Coaches have confidence in me and I have confidence in myself. We'll be just fine.
 
Wade: You can say ok but 37 vertical just isnt ok. Thats extraordinary. Size and mobility arent ok stats. This guy is a really good athlete. He is humble. As good as athlete as was up there.
 
You know Wade has had success. Thoughts on playing for him?
 
Excited. Cant wait to work with him. Got a great D mind. He knows what hes doing. Cant wait to fit in.
 
Being from Wisconsin, how much of Packers 3-4 have you watched?
 
Watched a lot of it, every chance I got. It was effective.
 
Where is the ring from?
 
Big 10 championship ring. Want a much bigger one.
 
Wade: We want to go to one bowl game.
 
Talk about your journey and ending up here.
 
I wanted to play football. Didnt matter where. Didnt get many scholarship offers. Walked on to the Badgers, earned scholarship before stepping foot onto the field. Started 2 years and then declared.
 
Texans had problems on D. Trying to get things fixed, how do you feel about being part of it?
 
Excited. They have trust in me and I'll work my tail off to prove they made the right choice.
 
How much hard work do you try to translate into leadership?
 
Anyone can talk, but you have to walk the walk too.
 
HS coach compared you to Howie Long. Idol to you?
 
Hes pretty darn good. Would love to be compared to him. Watched a lot of film on him.
 
Agent speak to Pizza Hut guys yet about endorsements?
 
All for it!
 
Wade, what did you see on film that you liked?
 
All those things combined. The total package. His production....a big factor. When you play that position and are 2nd leading tackler and 2nd leader in passes defended, thats an area D linemen shouldnt be leading in. This guy is a productive player. Made some big plays.
 
What was it that caused you to transfer?
 
Wanted to play in the NFL. Wasnt going to happen in the MAC catching 8 passes. Some people are just happy playing Division I football. I wanted something much bigger. I took all or nothing shot and it has paid off.
 
Wade, can you see JJ down, Mario standing up on same side?
 
Sure.
 
Part of the plan?
 
We'll go into it more but gives us versatility with Mario we didnt have before.

Wow I know some of these players are big and he's huge. Maybe some of it is standing next to Wade but geez and his dad was stout himself. I think the pick was excellent and intelligent. The presser kinda reminds me of Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle in Young Frankenstein when the curtains were raised and then the introduction to the audience ...lol. Hopefully later Wade be saying "I created a monster." lol

In regards to this stuff HSF 09 just posted from the presser:

Quote:

You see that?!?! You SEE that?!?!

Paraphrased: "I wanted to play in the NFL, and I be damned if I was going to play a position that wouldn't let me compete and show NFL scouts what I can do on a field. So I went out and did it."

This guy doesn't wait for things to happen to him. He goes out and gets it himself.

And all the stuff Wade Phillips is saying about his NFL combine stats? I've been saying the same things: You can't ignore best vertical, second best broadjump, almost the best bench presses, the hands, the feet, the motor, the skills, the desire, the directness he uses when answering.

There's no "pray and hope" attitude with this guy. It's freaking stooopid crazy. I am so jazzed right now.

For all practical purposes, looks like Wade is the face of the franchise, atleast in terms of the coaching staff. That's the only one who was on the stand with Watt (except for his parents - and moms a good lookin woman).
But this Watt kid is very likable, personable, smart, and confidant without being cocky.

I think last year Bush was the one to speak on the defensive picks.

I'm not reading too much into it.

I'm starting to get good feelings about this upcoming season.

I like the fact that Kubiak has some pressure relieved from him because he has Wade here with him.

Wade has a lot of Head Coaching experience and he knows how to handle certain things. Just something as simple as an interview that he doesn't have to be up on the podium for can feel like a big burden being lifted.
