Watch J.J. Watt tackle a fan disrupting the Zac Brown Band – by Tania Ganguli of ESPN
"Ever wanted to know what it’s like to be tackled by Houston Texans star J.J. Watt?No? Well, then you’re sane.But if you did, I’d recommend crashing the stage of a concert by one of Watt’s buddies in the Zac Brown Band while they’re playing in Watt’s homeland. Like last night, when a fan in what looks like an Alabama T-shirt appeared to jump on stage at Summerfest in Milwaukee and start dancing, only to have a sunglasses-donning Watt fly in and tackle him.Watt’s alma mater, Wisconsin, takes on Alabama at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, to open the 2015 season."
AFC South Q&A: How do you defend J.J. Watt? – by Tania Ganguli of ESPN
"Today’s question: How do your teams go about handling J.J. Watt and how do they think they’ve done against him?Mike Wells, Indianapolis Colts: Are we talking about handling him on defense or offense? That’s just how good he is. I go back to last October in Houston when thinking about how Watt is able to dominate a game. The Colts looked like they were on their way to blowing the Texans out — up 24-0 at the end of the first quarter — when Watt’s defensive effort got Houston back in the game. He had seven tackles, two sacks, three passes defended, four quarterback hits and a fumble recovery for a touchdown in the Texans’ 33-28 loss. You can’t block Watt one-on-one. Colts quarterback Andrew Luck says you always have to be aware of where Watt is lined up because he constantly moves around. But the quarterback also added that you can’t strictly focus on Watt because that opens the door for the offense to make a mental mistake, and it potentially opens the door for another one of Houston’s defenders to make a big play."
Top 5 quarterbacks on the Texans’ 2015 schedule – by John Harris of HoustonTexans.com
"When the 2015 schedule was announced in April, one aspect stood out more than any other. The quarterbacks the Texans have to face in 2015 are a step, or two, above the ones they faced last year. Throw in rookies Jameis Winston (Tampa Bay – Week 3) and Marcus Mariota (Tennessee – Week 8 & Week 16) and it has the possibility of being the most dynamic crew of quarterbacks the Texans have faced in quite some time. As such, here are the top five signal callers the Texans will face in 2015.1. Tom Brady, New England Patriots – Week 14 (Home) – The reigning champ is here! The last time TB12 came to Houston, his quarterbacks coach and play caller was Bill O’Brien.Key Stat: Brady threw for his fewest amount of yards (4,109) in five seasons, yet he ended the season with his fourth Super Bowl championship.2. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts – Week 5 (Home) & Week 15 (Away) – Former Houston product Luck enters his fourth NFL season as one of the five best quarterbacks in the league.Key Stat: Luck is 5-1 against the team he grew up watching – he calls Marc “Mr. Vandermeer” by gosh.3. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints – Week 11 (Home) – Brees is going to be an interesting gunslinger to watch this year after losing wide receiver Kenny Stills and his Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham. But, he won’t lack for weapons on the perimeter, that’s for sure.Key Stat: Brees has thrown for 5,000 yards in a season four times and missed a fifth time by just 48 yards in 2014."
