    The interception of Dalton in the wild card game was...amazing.

    Will never forget it. It was unreal.

    He threw the ball, Watt jumps, and all of a sudden he's racing to the end zone. I had sort of zoned out and wasn't really watching the play when it happened. I just sat there...stunned.

    I'm excited to see Watt in beast mode all year. With Smith on the other side playing his ass off in a contract year, our secondary having a full off season and TC in our new system, the addition of Mercilus to give our outstanding LB a quality rotation to keep everyone fresh, and Cushing being Cushing we should be just fine on the defensive side of the ball.

    J.J. Watt was unstoppable towards the end of the season. He should be even better this year.

    Nice, but it's too bad that gifs don't have sound. That crowd was amazing.

    I just think this guy is going to go down as an all time Texans legend. I love his swag, and his approach to the game.

    Looking at the team that's been assembled, it's hard to gripe too much about the "squeaky clean player" approach McNair has. We have some real beasts on both side of the ball, but none of the distractions that a team like the Lions, Steelers, sAints, Raiders have.

    JJ seems to embody all of the qualities the Texans have strived for since day one. I see him as more of a replacement for Ryans' leadership than Cushing. JJ reminds me of AJ. He walks the walk but doesn't have to be over the top about it. Cushing is far more demonstrative and over the top. I love that about Cushing and it gets people fired up, but players have to know when to reel it in. Players like AJ and JJ can reel others in with their on/off field persona's and let others know what is expected of a Texan.

    I think we have our Bagwell and Biggio after 10 years.

    Is there audio of Vandermeer making the call? Not sure if I've ever seen the NBC video of the interception. Whoever the announcers were make it seem like it's not a real big deal.

    If Watt can consistently play like he did from the Indy game through the rest of the way, he can become the best defensive player in the league.

    I also recall two B.S. calls against him where he got a sack, but it was called back due to a low hit on the QB. One against Pitt, another against Indy.

    So in my mind, he had 7.5 sacks in the regular season. Did I miss any more?

    That Dalton pass was destined to be a pick six even if Watt had not snatched it out of thin air. McCain (I think?) was waiting for it. It was the perfect playcall is all I have to say.

    Inside the game

    Vandermeer makes the JJ Watt interception call at about 23 seconds in to this video.

    Considering the final score, that changed the course of the game. And if I remember correctly, the defense had been struggling some. As someone mentioned they had some calls that went against them and extended a few Bengal drives. This play finally kind of swung the momentum in our favor and turned the tide.
