JJ WATT REPRESENTIN’ DA WIZ HOUSE!
Okay, this video’s got me a little conflicted. Because I’m about to simultaneously praise and then belittle J.J. Watt’s incredible pick-6 in Saturday’s NFL Playoffs game. But I’ll do it anyway.
First and foremost, I LOVE WISCONSIN. I love almost everything and everybody that gets national attention from our great land of cheese. J.J. Watt is obviously no exception. I think he’s a talented, hard-working, class-act that gut-checked himself when he was 19 years old, transferred from Central Michigan to walk on in Madison, became an All-American, and is now making millions of dollars as a professional athlete. And his interception *(seen below) is about as brilliant as it gets for defensive linemen. Awareness, incredible reaction time, and then execution to actually grasp that NFL-quarterback fired football when it was released about 8 feet from his face.
….when the camera pans to the right, whoa. What was Andy Dalton thinking? It’s reminiscent of a now infamous photo shared ALL over the internet *(also seen below), when a guy named Brett Favre threw one of the worst and MOST PAINFUL interceptions in Green Bay Packer history. There were basically 3 receivers open, and one receiver covered, and well, the ol’ gunslinger thought it was the best decision to throw toward that one covered receiver. The rest is history. Congratulations, Super Bowl XLII champs New York Giants.
Watt’s pick-6 was virtually guaranteed to happen anyways, without his incredible effort. I mean, LOOK AT THE D-BACKS! LOOK AT THE LAZY “I’VE ALREADY GIVEN UP, SO I’ll STAND AND WATCH” RECEIVER! WHAT A TERRIBLE PASS!
So um, anyway, now that I think about it, I’m not belittling J.J. Watt’s interception (it’s still awesome) but just saying it could’ve been a lot more boring to celebrate a cornerback dime-a-dozen pick-6. Instead…
WHOOOOO! ON WINSCONSIN!!!!!!
