    Not surprising. Guy eats, sleep football. Probably don't even need him against the crappy bears.

    When Schefty tweets about it, you know it is pretty much official.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Less than two months after undergoing back surgery, J.J. Watt is expected to play in next Sunday’s opener vs. Chicago, per league source.</p>&mdash; Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) <a href="https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/772460193116336128">September 4, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    He played with it half of last season.

    Even if he blows it out again he's still going to play on Sunday.

    He wants to be the greatest, and he's probably going to end up like Earl because of it.

    I would prefer if he took a little bit longer, but honestly I think he's trying to play just to keep his streak going. I wouldn't expect him to play much.

    That might be the most disturbing picture I've ever seen.

    Agreed

    I surely hope he's not thinking he has to be out there for his team to be successful.

    I remember Tracy McGrady having that same chain of thought and it cost him big time.

    Reading that piece in men's journal about how earlier this year JJ couldn't even get out of his car or walk to the point Shane and other teammates had serious concerns about his health, much less playing this year...it's crazy after all he's been thru to be game ready

    People sound silly trying to discredit JJ. Sean Jones just argued Von was more dominant because LBs are more versatile on the field and can accumulate more PDs. His hating ass didn't realize the 46 number mentioned was Watt's career total, not Von's (both drafted same season). Watt more than quadruples Miller's total. :eek:

    JJ's game is so amazing, it's literally unbelievable.

    Sean Jones said the defense might be better with watt out. He's trying to be skip Payless

    I tuned in just to hear what all this was about. he compared to nothing more than howie long. Loved howie long, even watched his movie where he is a fireman but watt almost has howie's 12 year career numbers in five seasons, with 45 more passes defended. To put it in perspective HOF Cornerback Darrell green had around 9 PDs.

    Watt has the impact of an OLB, D lineman and DB. Jones guy must be on the cocaina. you got to cot it.

    Yeah, Houston sports radio is pretty terrible. A lot of hot takes, not a lot of substance.

    Considering his history with fraud, it's not surprising he'd continue in his radio career.
