What a challenge he's been putting himself through.
So much easier when you live his Spartan lifestyle. The bad guys have no doubt JJ has put the time in.

"I went camping with Watt ... I'm in the back of a pickup with Watt and a live deer. Well, Watt, he grabs the deer by the antlers, looks at it and says, 'I'm J.J. Watt! Say it!' Then he squeezes the deer in such a way that a sound comes out of its mouth -- "JJWatt!" It wasn't exactly it, but it was pretty good for a deer."

"I once saw him scissor-kick Angela Lansbury."

"Watt's ranked eighteenth in the AP college football poll"

"He breast feeds John Madden"

"I remember one time Watt took his family to Sea World. They were watching Shamu the whale when Watt got splashed. So Watt yells, 'I'm J.J. Watt and no one gets me wet!' So he climbs into the tank, grabs Shamu, and throws the whale into the audience, splashes him and yells, 'How do you like it?' And then damn if Watt didn't step in there and finish the show."

Default Re: JJ Watt is a damned decent human being!

I dunno if anyone has posted this or not. J.J. Watt is awesome. Here is an article on Grantland: http://grantland.com/features/j-j-wa...4-nfl-preview/

One of Watt’s favorite moves is one he calls the jab-and-go.3 It typically starts with him lining up just outside of a guard. In Phillips’s one-gap defense, that space between the guard and tackle is Watt’s responsibility. The standard way players are taught to control that gap is by firing into it just as the ball is snapped, to claim that space with the most speed and authority possible. Every so often, Watt will eschew those lessons. Instead, he takes a step inside, momentarily leaving him and the defense vulnerable. “If it works, you’re giving up your gap for a brief second to gain an advantage in getting back in your gap more effectively,” Watt says. “If it doesn’t, you’re giving up your gap, and you’re also blocked, so now there’s one gap unaccounted for.” Usually, it leaves a guard so off-balance that he has to catch his footing just to keep from falling on his face.

Default Re: JJ Watt is a damned decent human being!

one paragraph from article

In nearly four decades of pro football, Phillips has been lucky enough to coach some of the best pass-rushers ever. He had five years with Bruce Smith in Buffalo. He coached Reggie White for three in Philadelphia. Before arriving in Houston, he oversaw the prime of DeMarcus Ware’s career with the Cowboys. “Two years ago was the best defensive line play in the history of football,” Phillips says. “He had more tackles, blocked passes, pressures on the quarterback. The conglomeration of all that was the best that anybody has ever played. I’ve had some great ones, but they’ve never made that many great plays in one year.”
