Congrats to Watt
Well earned. You expect stars like him to shine in the biggest situations, and man oh man did he do just that.
Another good read.
Wish we Had 2 more of Him. LoL
I agree but too bad it was way past my bedtime and I had to miss it.
Well we do have Derek. I think he counts as a half watt.
I forget about Him. LoL
Tomlin's done that all season.
Go back and really look at that Sack Fumble in overtime!
Everyone is all about how many guys rotated over to him, but I remember an angle during the live broadcast that showed he had his helmet rearranged by a hands to the face as he was scraping.
Watch right before he makes the strip sack as he re-adjusts his helmet with the hand that knocks the ball out!
I noticed they were doing that to a few of the pass rushers with no calls. Think it was the TE and maybe the RG? not really a film guy so it's hard to pick out.
Watt and Harris are the keys to winning this year. Lose either of those players to injury and Steelers are toast.
To think I wanted Obi Melifonwu over him at one point . My argument against getting TJ Watt at the time had nothing to do with his ability but whether or not he was even going to be available for the Steelers to select him. Realistically speaking, heading into that draft, I had him going Top 15!
Be that as it may, was very happy we got him back during the 2017 Draft. He has yet to disappoint since. Hopefully now he can finally acquire NFL DPOY this time!
Congrats again T.J. Watt!! May many more accolades come your way!! Well earned!!
While he is not as impactful as these two, losing Devin Bush is not ideal either. His sideline to sideline speed will be necessary in facing teams like Baltimore and Cleveland later down the road. Lose that immense speed and the Run Defense will be crippled.
So far, Bush doesn't look like he's any faster than Shobert or Spillane.
There was a lot of hands to the face in that game without being called
The Steelers better be careful because they're already starting to get a little crispy.
I don't disagree but I would have to add Cam Heyward to that very tight window.
He is still recovering from a serious injury. Yes, he is playing but he is not 100%. For that matter, it will be a while yet before he can be.
Frustrating I know but that is the nature of such ailments.
Watt a game!
Hopefully he doesn't get rooked out of the DPOY award which he is on pace for. He should have it gotten last season.
Worth every C note
Yes but that's only a part of why he is struggling. Its the mental game that is holding him back as well. That's the part i'm concerned with. He's healthy enough to get major snaps.
He's mental all right
Not just a part. A major aspect of it. As you stated, the mental aspect of the game has not fully caught up yet. This is due to lack of time on the field.
Film study only does so much. Have to practice those habits for the studying itself to bear fruit.
10th highest cap hit on the team, 11th is Banner.
