Texans defensive linemen J.J. Watt had one of the best seasons that any defensive player has ever had in 2012. But it wasn’t good enough.
Watt said in an interview with Andrew Siciliano on NFL Network that the only way this season can be good enough for the Texans is if they win the Super Bowl, and that’s what he and his teammates expect.
“We won another division championship, we won one playoff game, but we’re not satisfied,” Watt said. “Around here we have much higher expectations than that and going into this season, it’s Super Bowl. We have Super Bowl on our mind around here.”
Watt says there’s nothing he would consider an acceptable result from this season other than holding the Lombardi Trophy on February 2, 2014.
“No. Every team in the league will tell you that, but that’s legitimately our expectation. We want to win a championship. We want to bring a championship to this city,” Watt said.
That’s a tall order, but Houston fans know they can count on Watt to do his part.
