3. J.J. Watt Needs Help

No not the mental kind. The “oh so you think double teaming me is a good idea eh? Meet my teammates” kind.

Watt’s stat line reads like a Madden game, 20.5 sacks, multiple defensive and offensive touchdowns.

Watt had 44 quarterback hits. No other defensive player in all of the NFL had more then 21.

You’d think with all that attention, someone would have taken advantage. Well, you’d be wrong. Sacks for the rest of the team? 17.5.

The next two in line were Whitney Mercilus who was only starting because Jadeveon Clowney was out pretty much the entire year with a blown knee and mini-Watt.

Sorry, Jared Crick with 3.5 sacks. I say mini-Watt only because Cricks like a little mini-Watt.

He bats down balls (6) enough that a few times the announcers were “Watt with a swat! Oh, wait that was Crick?” It amused me.

He’s a hard worker and improving but they need to find players and work the scheme to their advantage.

Watt’s a demi-God of Football.

But even Thor has the Avengers.
