    Don't get this Watt isn't the same player anymore train of thought, he hasn't had the sack numbers but has most definitely been making splash plays and scoring well on pff.

    Losing him and Mercilus hurts bad because it exposes an already weak secondary

    Finally finding our franchise QB is the story of decade.

    Solving the puzzle at the single most important position in football will always trump everything else. Teams can go decades in the draft without landing one. Ask the Browns.

    J.J has looked like a shell of his former self. Back surgery for you and I, life goes on. Back surgery for an NFL player, game over. This will likely end his short but glorious career. I would guess Mercilus has a torn pec and is likely done for awhile. The defense already looked bad and will get worse.

    There will be plenty of talk in the media like yours, but if there's one person who can overcome this and come back even stronger, it's JJ Watt.

    Its one thing that your got picked apart by Brady or Rogers, and with due respect to Alex Smith, he is playing great this season.

    But the problem with this Texan's secondary is : at one point, KC was 8-11 on third down conversion and all of those 3rd downs were converted by throws and about more than half of the time, there are not even a Texan defender 5 yards near the receiver.

    What a forking joke.

    Kareem Jackson is often not aware where the ball is and where his guy is, JJo is just like a 80 years old man. Hal is even worse than both.

    I guess only sacks matter, he had one of the best run stop percentages and was still getting pressure on the qb, with an average at best secondary. Sacks would have come for him

    Regardless, the attention shown to Watt helped the rest of the front seven which in turn helped our weak secondary.

    Totally agree with you. We play that bend but don’t break defense. Alex Smith will take those mid level throws all day. He doesn’t look for homeruns

    I agree. Watt now draws a double team on damn nearly every play.

    I think Travis Kelce was out in the second half, otherwise he may score 2 TDs and over 200 yards of receiving.

    He is good but it also reflects how bad our coverage is.

    What a terrible day for Houston Sports, I had to double check to make sure Fertitta didn't announce he was moving the Rockets to Las Vegas or something.

    I think the big story is this thread was created. Don't you think? Discuss

    Short-term, news on JJ.

    Long-term, Watson who is an up and coming star in the most difficult position in football. He is the future of the NFL.

    Remember we had stats of batted balls by Watt. This season I don't think they keep track of this stat on Watt. One star is fading, another is born. And the most important position.

    I have been watching the talking heads on ESPN the last couple days. They barely mention the Watt injury (and don't talk about Mercilus at all) but they are talking about DeShaun all the time.

    Juss sayin'
