I knew there had to be a reason we went 6-10 the year before we drafted Watt!

Just think, if we'd have gone 9-7 or 10-6, we wouldn't have Watt or Wade on this team, and we might even still have Frank Bush as DC! The cowgirls might have ended up with JJ! What a nightmare that could have been. So basically, at least 2 good things came from the 6-10 season. Watt and Wade! Let's hope they are together with the Texans for a long time.

"when he was" Does Rex knows something about Dallas' coaching movements that we don't ?

Rex meant Rob knew he wanted to draft Watt when JJ was in Dallas for a pre-draft evaluation.

Sacks - Season to date (through Week 5)

J.J. Watt___- 8.5 (Leads the NFL)
M. Williams-- 1.5

J.J. added 1 more sack today, per ESPN. Mario Williams did not register any sacks, but he did have one tackle.

Exactly. This obsession with Mario Williams in a JJ Watt thread is fkn ridiculous. First off, it's a thread about JJ Watt, not Mario Williams. Second, Mario doesn't even play here. Finally, if you absolutely must compare, then compare the appropriate positions. Mario had 5 sacks in 5 games at OLB in a Wade Phillips defense. You want to compare that to something? Compare it to the OLBs in a Wade Phillips defense.

Or just fkn drop it and move on with life. Jesus H. Christ.

Skipping our meds today, are we?

By the way, J.J. Watt is a 3-4 DE and Mario Williams is a 4-3 DE. Neither of them is an OLB, so there is no point in making that comparison.

Default Re: JJ Watt: All-Pro DE

I'll give you something to compare about JJ Watt and Mario Williams, during the lockout Mario made negative noises about playing 3-4 DE, it seemed from what was coming out of our FO at the time that that was the position they had him pegged to play.

Mario didn't want to play a position with a lack of production in a contract year.

Its possible to believe that had Williams accepted his position in the 3-4, the Texans would still have liked Reed in the 2nd to play OLB for them, and they may well in that case have felt the had to take Fairley at DT instead of Watt at a position they already had a 'top' starter at.

So had it not been for Mario's winging about how he was going to justify a big contract playing 3-4 DE, we might not have had chance to see JJ proving what can be done from the position.

Moving forward, do people think eventually teams will learn to stop Watt at all costs, slowing his statistical production but openning things up for those around him, or is he going to be allowed to continue, I mean he was oh soo close to having 2 sacks yesterday but Sanchize only just got the ball away. Surely he can't keep up that stat line over the course of an entire career can he?

Texans will rue the night they took Pizza Boy J.J. Watt over Nick Fairley
Quote:
BY CHRIS BALDWIN
04.29.11 |
A star fell right into the Houston Texans laps on draft night, like a blessing from the football gods — only Rick Smith, Gary Kubiak and Wade Phillips didn't grab him. Instead, they punted Nick Fairley right back into the boo-y night.

Fairley landed with the Detroit Lions, where he'll collect Pro Bowl berths for years to come. The Texans took a former Pizza Hut deliveryman instead. But that pizza boy sure has a lot of character.

That's really what it seems to have come down to for the Texans again with the selection of Wisconsin's J.J. Watt. This franchise may never make the playoffs under Bob McNair, but it's sure going to have high-quality gentlemen on the roster...
Doh!, I hate it when that happens.

Did you skip watching a year? Mario played OLB in Wade's 3-4 last year, by the way.

he blew up a double team PLUS the runningback on a play last night ... he might just be unstoppable even if they rotate half the line watt's direction. it's certainly going to help everyone on the line, but they have to be more consistent beating 1v1's as is. of course it's going to make wade's job so much more fun because he'll have more opportunities to get a blitzer through free.
