If you want a detailed discussion of what’s going on with the Texans right now, you should ask someone other than defensive end J.J. Watt.
Watt met the media on Wednesday for a question-and-answer session that was short on both questions and answers. Watt opened by complimenting the Chiefs, this week’s opponent, and saying the team was hoping to gain some momentum heading into their bye week before explaining why he wouldn’t be taking any questions from the media.
“For us, from our standpoint, our fans don’t want to hear about how we’re going to fix it. They don’t want to hear me stand up here and tell them anything. They don’t want to hear the words I have to say. They just want us to resolve it and I fully understand that,” Watt said. “So all I can do is go to work. All we can do as a team is go to work and that’s what we’re going to do. Words don’t win games. Work does. I apologize for the concise statement and lack of answering questions. Honestly, I don’t have words for y’all. Just work. I’m just going to work. The fans want results and that’s what I’m going to try to give them.”
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. A win would be worth even more than that for Watt and the Texans, so there’s not much point wasting any when there’s nothing all that new to say after four weeks of the same dismal story.
