He continued amassing sacks he currently stands second to Bruce Smith in league history with 198 -- while with Green Bay and became perhaps the greatest defensive player ever. All the while, one kid in the Wisconsin town of Pewaukee was taking notice.
J.J. Watt tried to pattern his game after White's, but Watt has done a lot of studying now that he's grown up way up, into the Houston Texans' 6-foot-5 295-pound beast of a candidate for Defensive Player of the Year.
"Obviously, living in Wisconsin, I was a big Reggie White fan," Watt said Wednesday on a conference call with Minnesota reporters ahead of the Texans' Sunday game against the Vikings. "Ever since I moved to defensive ...

Houston Texans defensive end and NFL MVP candidate J.J. Watt was quite happy this past weekend after beating the Indianapolis Colts and clinching the AFC South.

HOUSTON Adrian Peterson watches J.J. Watt, and he sees the work of a Divine Creator.
"God created him to play this game," Peterson said.
Kind words from Zeus, there.
Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings running back, is perhaps the most divinely designed football player in existence. He runs not just fast, and not just powerfully, but like he's trying to tell us all...
There has been plenty of talk since J.J. Watt has taken the 2012 season by storm and has become the unquestionable defensive leader of the Houston Texans. Watt through fourteen games has put up some numbers in his second season that some players only dream about,
74 total tackles, 19.5 sacks, 15 pass deflections and 3 forced fumbles
Watt is pushing for the NFL Defensive Player...
In a celebratory episode of Luv Ya Steel Blue, Pat makes his triumphant return to the podcast with Mike and Cleaver as they discuss the Texans second consecutive division crown, why J. J. Watt should win defensive player of the year and whether or not Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub are the demons this fan base makes them out to be. We might even discuss some of the creepy things you...
Some of us sit here waiting for week 16 of the NFL season to get underway with little to no excitement. Many of our favorite teams are not in playoff contention, and most of our fantasy football squads have by now been knocked out as well.
If one of those statements, or God forbid both of those statements, ring true for you, I’m here to point out why you should still be tuning...
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster decided to buy each one of the offensive lineman that block for him each and every week a segway, as a way to show his appreciation. “They all, as a front, can enjoy the joy that I get from riding my Segway,” Foster said. Foster, the Texans’ All Pro running back, always rides his Segway around Reliant Stadium. He, along with Andre...
