J.J. Watt and Texans hope to ruin homecoming for Ravens’ Kubiak…

Ravens’ offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak was head coach of the Houston Texans for most of the prior decade. So you’d expect some mixed emotions from the Texans players as the Ravens (9-5) try to build on their playoff drive this Sunday at Houston (7-7). But all-purpose defensive end J.J. Watt has made it clear he wants a W at all costs against his former coach’s team. The...

TGS weekly NFL MVP tracker

We’ve been eliminating NFL MVP candidates on a weekly basis this season, and last week we got that list down to just two men — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. But after Rodgers struggled against the Buffalo Bills, we’re cheating by adding a third name back to the list entering Week 16. And it’s probably not a name you’d...

J.J. Watt Receives Autographed Jersey From Confident 7-Year-Old Kid (Photo)

One kid certainly knows what it means to dream big. Houston Texans star J.J. Watt has autographed a jersey or two — or a thousand — in his day, but it isn’t often that he’s the one receiving signed pieces of memorabilia from fans. Enter seven-year-old Anthony Tarantelli. The youngster wrote a letter to his idol, telling Watt that kids calls him J.J. because he also plays...

Kid Sends JJ Watt Autograph Jersey Cause He’s Next Watt (Photo)

This is super cool, and as Watt said, extremely gutsy. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is likely the most popular player in the league right now. His hard-nosed play, humble attitude and work ethic have made him a star in the NFL. Watt tweeted this message and jersey he received from a seven-year-old fan that wants to be just like the MVP candidate. The young explained to...

You won’t be able to unsee this picture of J.J. Watt without any teeth

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt should probably be the NFL’s MVP this season. He’s a superstar even among superstars and is a smashing success both on and off the field. He’s scored more touchdowns than Larry Fitzgerald this season and is becoming a highly marketable personality: The thing is, he may not be so marketable if he didn’t have any teeth. Check out this...

JJ Watt featured on South Park holiday episode

J.J. Watt’s magical season on the field continues to capture the fancy of the nation and no further documentation is needed than the news that the Houston Texans defensive dynamo (and freelancing tight end) will be featured in the upcoming holiday-themed episode of “South Park.” Because, of course, being the subject of satire is indeed...Read More The post J.J.

J.J. Watt on playing tight end: ‘I have no idea what they’re saying in the huddle’ (vid)

While his inordinately successful production when taking snaps with the Houston Texans offense may belie it, all-world football player J.J. Watt’s admission about how he is relatively clueless about what’s going around him while playing tight end is nevertheless surprising. “I have no idea what they’re saying in the huddle on offense.
