J.J. Watt bemoans ‘cynical world’ of social media

J.J. Watt raised some eyebrows earlier this week when he took to Twitter to rip the media, arguing that it frequently turns non-stories into stories. Stop making stories out of non-stories. A bunch of guys made it to work today, not just me. I'm not retiring. I'm single. Anything else? — JJ Watt (@JJWatt) April 18, 2016 The tweet presumably was in response to the coverage...

Why is there no pressure on J.J. Watt to win?

Lately, the NFL’s best defensive player has spoken rather boldly about the possibility that he’ll retire at an earlier age than many Houston Texans fans would prefer. But what’s interesting is that as we ponder J.J. Watt’s legacy, we hardly ever consider the fact the four-time first-team All-Pro and three-time defensive player of the year has won just two playoff games. I...

JJ Watt rips media for ‘making stories out of non-stories’

J.J. Watt is tired of the media making a big deal out of everything he does. That’s right, the guy who never shies away from the spotlight and loves documenting much of his life on social media wants the gossip about his personal life and rumors about when his playing career will end to stop. Stop making stories out of non-stories. A bunch of guys made it to work today, not...

J.J. Watt: I’ll stop playing when I’m not one of the best

J.J. Watt isn’t going to break his body playing football until he gets dragged off the field. Speaking on 610 AM radio in Houston Wednesday morning, Watt made it clear he’s not going to be that guy.
