Watt explains sideline incident with Kollar

The Black Friday edition of The Dan Patrick Show, hosted by an Internet hack with whom you may be vaguely familiar, generated a surprising amount of news.  From NFL executive V.P. of football operations Ray Anderson sharing details regarding the latest use of a foot by Ndamukong Suh to the red-flag fiasco to the league’s intention to keep suspending players for illegal hits despite the reduction of Ed Reed’s suspension to 49ers safety Donte Whitner declaring that Colin Kaepernick will be the starting quarterback on Sunday, it was an eventful three hours.

The final guest in the final segment also shed some light on what would have been a major story coming out of the Texans-Lions game but for Suh and the red flag and the missed field goals in overtime.  Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and defensive line coach Bill Kollar got into a fairly heated discussion on the sideline, with Watt uncharacteristically animated and red faced.

So what was that all about?  Watt said they were simply listing the things for which they’re thankful.

He continued to downplay the situation, as did coach Gary Kubiak in his Friday session with reporters.  Kubiak said he didn’t even know about it.  “[T]hey argue every day,” Kubiak said, via CSNHouston.com, “so that’s nothing new.”

It’s also nothing new for Watt to be dominant.  His three sacks on Thursday give him 14.5 for the season, which will keep him in the thick of the league MVP chatter.  Watt said Friday that he embraces the consideration, since it helps give positive attention to his team.

His team is now 10-1, and the Texans are moving toward the top seed in the AFC.  Though Ross Tucker has suggested on NBC Sports Network that the Texans could be better off facing high-powered passing attacks of the Patriots and Broncos in the elements of their home stadiums and not in the climate-controlled successor to the Astrodome, Watt was clear — he wants the team to play any playoff games at home.

If they do, they might be playing the final game of the season not very far away from Houston.

    It’s deer hunting season in Wisconsin and the former Badger was stuck on a football field!

    What could Suh do to avoid kicking Matt. He was being pulled down to the ground not intentionally trying to nail him right in the nuts.

    Yes. When you don’t have a real team to root for, tear down the teams that end up beating you.

    Then, thump your chest and roar.

    The sideline argument was cleary Cutler’s fault

    Bill Kollar is a former Bengal first round bust from around 1975. Watt was probably telling Kollar that what Kollar knew about defense, and living up to ones hype, he could fit in a thimble and still have room for the Chinese Army

    Too bad they don’t bother to put out a podcast so at least a few of us could listen to the “Hack” at our convenience

    Please, will the Suh defenders just shut up. Do you not see the exaggerated leg whip and when nothing connects, he comes with an extra push and connect. Did he know it was gonna hit him in the Cojones? No. But don’t act like he was being all innocent.

    JJ watt is a punk. He needs to be taken down a notch

    No mention in any of this of the Lions scoring 2 rushing touchdowns on the Houston defense (that hadn’t allowed a rushing touchdown).

    Watt lost his temper on the field and Kollar was having a talk with him about why the defense was letting the Lions score. Watt could clearly be seen shouting, “I know the play!”

    But hey, why discuss the actual facts of what happened when you can just as easily turn the discussion into hatefest against the Lions and against Suh. The Schwartz haters will also be chiming in any second.

    There IS an article about that too, and a picture of JJ Watt hitting him square in the chest on that play.
