    NFL sack leader for the 2012 regular season. Aldon Smith didn't get a sack against Arizona so JJ wins the title. Watt a great season for him. Congrats JJ you are the man. So glad you are a Houston Texan.

    JJ Watt is a MEAST. Half man, half meat lover, half beast. That's 150%!

    Couldn't agree more...wish we had more on the team with his intensity...should be a lock for DPOY...I hope for his sake, and AJ's, that we can make a run...they deserve it.

    Imagine the Texans without Watt this year?

    I think he alone added 3 wins. DPOY

    Watt is an example for the rest of the team. If the rest of the Texans played lights out every play like he does, we wouldn't be having all this pessimism.

    Thank you JJ Watt for your efforts.

    It's amazing he was able to achieve so much with Kubiak's lack of leadership. It must've been tough for him to motivate himself without having a general to lead him into battle. Incredible, Mr Watt! Well done.

    Agreed. The guy just gets it done. Most exciting defensive player I have ever seen.

    Totally agree! Can you imagine how horrible our defense would be without him?

    For a DE in a 3-4 defense, this is an even more remarkable achievement !
    Congrats JJ !

    Agree with all of you. The man is a freak of nature, but my favorite part of the man is the way he gives absolutely everything he has and leaves nothing left in his tank. At the end of the game, you know at least one guy on the D left it all on the line.

    This is the kind of guy that if he was working at McDonalds, he would be the best damn burger maker in the entire chain. He would be named like employee of the year. LOVE people like JJ Watt. If you have a kid and want him to admire an athlete, I can't think of a better example.

    Couldn't agree more, Porky. Totally upstanding young man. An excellent example for people of all ages to follow. Congrats JJ!!!

    I think Watt would have had the record if the Texans offense hadn't had the motor drop out of it a few weeks ago. Teams that are behind have to throw the ball and over the past four weeks I think it might have translated into a couple more sacks. Still, an impressive accomplishment regardless.

    And he does it off the field, too...

    Photo-op with kids from a family decimated by tragedy? Nope, he's with those kids all the time. Take a rest day before a big game? Nope, those kids in Newtown need a few hours of time away from thoughts is what took place so I'll fly up & visit them.

    J.J. is the perfect example of: If you want better self-esteem, do esteem-able things.

    DPOY is a given, but there's another award J.J. is in the running for...

    the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, honoring a player's volunteer and charity work, as well as his excellence on the field.

    He is indeed an inspiration to all who watches him. He deserves all of the credit that is coming his way.

    I'm just concerned that he wishes that he was on another team. Really sad that he plays with such intensity knowing that the defense has to score a couple of touchdowns or they are going to lose.

    He would never say that, but, I can't help feeling that he feels that way.

    He is an outstanding role model for all young people to emulate.

    He won a playoff game in his first year in the league. I'm not concerned about that with JJ Watt.... YET. If Kubes stays around another few years, then I will be worried.

    Hope he does not leave like Mario Williams for pay day.

    (not saying MW compares to JJW, but still fear the same result)

    Another little "honor" for J.J.

    J.J. Watt is the first player in history to get an overall rating of over 100 by ProFootballFocus. He ended 2012 with a +101.7 rating. How good was this?

    Watt's pass rush rating alone for 2012 (+55.9) is higher than 4-3 DE Cameron Wake's overall rating for this year ... and 3-4 DE Justin Smith's overall ratings for 2011, 2010, 2009 ...

    Only NT Geno Atkins at 79.9 and 4-3 OLB Von Miller at 78.5 come close to J.J. overall, both this year.

    Watt's "run rating" of +45 ..... well, nobody has sniffed that level.

    The kicker is, flipping through every player at every position, each one's overall ratings consist of one very high rating in a single category. No one has every mastered two ratings categories equally. No one.


    Remember this day, Texans fans? Who'd have thunk it would turn out so well?
