The Houston Texans lost 14 straight games to finish the 2013 regular season. The law of averages says that any team with J.J. Watt anchoring its defense is bound to win a game somewhere in that down spiral, right? Either way, Houston is once again selecting first in the NFL draft and one Texans player in particular can’t get the taste of defeat out of his mouth:
This season sucked. It’s not acceptable and it won’t happen again.
— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) December 31, 2013
Twitter is one of the best inventions known to man, but it’s times like these when general managers, owners and head coaches alike being to cringe. While Watt didn’t bash any one Texan in particular, his tweet wasn’t exactly a ringing endorsement of his Houston teammates and coaching staff. Quite frankly, we really aren’t used to seeing such brute honesty from All-Pro players.
More conservative athletes use Twitter only in wins, while others just avoid the contraption all together. For Watt, he’s going to say what he wants and when he wants to. Of course, Watt’s most recent tweet begs the question: how long until the defensive end goes on a flat-out Twitter rant? It’s not like we haven’t seen anger out of Watt before, so it’s just a matter of time before No. 99 erupts for the whole world to see.
