Watt takes high road on Warmack’s “just another guy” comments

He may look like a pro wrestler, but Texans defensive end J.J. Watt doesn’t talk like one.


On Wednesday, reporters had a chance to ask Watt about recent comments from Titans guard Chance Warmack, who dubbed the 2012 NFL defensive player of the year “just another guy.”  Watt took the high road in response.


“I let my play do the talking,” Watt said, via quotes distributed by the team.  (Our friend at SportsRadio 610 in Houston provided the head’s up.)  “That’s fine.  I put my helmet just like everybody else.  It’s what I do once the helmet is on that matters.”

With or without his helmet, Watt still wants to get 20 sacks in 2013.

“Absolutely,” Watt said.  “A lot of people don’t think it can be done.  A lot of people don’t think it’s possible, but I love doing impossible things.  That’s my favorite.”

His new favorite likely will be getting some of those sacks by rolling Warmack like a bowling ball into Jake Locker’s legs.  But the rematch won’t happen until December 29.
