Default watching JJ Watt make history

With 2 games to go he sits at 19.5 sacks tied with Aldon Smith just 3 shy of Strahan's record! He is already the first in NFL history to record 15+ passes deflected and 15+ sacks.

If he gets the sack record will it be the greatest season ever by a defensive player?

Absolutely. It may already be the best season by a defensive player.

I think we looked into it earlier this season and figured that Bruce Smith's season of 19 sacks was the best sack total ever by a 3-4 DE. Like Smith, Watt is used in a few different spots, but he's almost always an interior pass rusher, which even Bruce Smith wasn't. Personally, I think it's the greatest season already.

Aldon smith is a bad ass no doubt, but I find JJ's sack number's even more impressive given the position he plays.

That's true hopefully Brady avoids getting sacked by Smith while still losing the game.

Well, without wins against GB and NE, I don't think it means much to get the record

Well you know us H-town sports fans. Were just cautious to overhype from so many dissapointments, and often focus on why we can't win instead of why we can.

All those guys were edge rushers. Watt is having the type of season that interior rushers simply don't have. The man had 10 tackles today. That's what linebackers do. He leads the team in solo tackles. He has an insane number of tackles for loss. He has pass deflection numbers up there with defensive backs. He stuffs the run as well or better than anyone in the NFL this year. I've never seen a player get low into the backfield as well or as often as he does it.

Oh yeah, and he gets to the QB sometimes.

BEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN FOOTBALL.

How many interior DL lead their team in tackles? Watt leads our team in total tackles- sacks- tackles for loss- pass deflections -and I think forced fumbles

I agree, but I don't think there's anything a defensive player can do in this day and age to win MVP. The voters are just fkn morons. They need to do away with the award completely and just do players of the year on each side of the ball.

I'll be the first to say I was wrong about Watt. I mostly liked him as a draft pick, but thought he'd be a fence post in the middle against the run. I never would've guessed we'd get this kinda production and pass rush out of him. The man is truly amazing. If he doesn't win defensive player of the year its a travesty in the modern sports era.

It sort of is that way. The mvp goes to best qb or rb, and dpoy goes to best defensive player. I think Taylor is the only defensive player to win and Jerry Rice was the only non qb/rb and they both had to share with most impressive qb that season.
