J.J. Watt manhandled the Titans’ offensive line on Sunday, but rookie guard Chance Warmack wasn’t all that impressed.
Watt put together an impressive performance on the day, finishing with five tackles, two sacks and two pass deflections in the Texans’ 30-24 overtime win. Even so, Warmack didn’t feel that the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year did anything to separate himself, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.
“He’s just another guy, a talented dude, but he puts his helmet on just like me,” Warmack said. “He did [have success]. But that’s football. You are going to get beat. There are some plays where he got beat, so that’s the game. You can’t get concerned with the name.”
Warmack clearly wasn’t fazed by Watt’s reputation before the game, and he sure didn’t seem swayed at all by his performance on Sunday. The rookie even hinted that Watt was no different than any other NFL player, even saying that last season’s sack leader has a weakness.
“I am not going to give him any more credit than he deserves,” Warmack said. “He’s a talented player. But everybody has a weakness, and he does too.”
Maybe by the time Watt and the Texans visit Nashville in Week 17, Warmack will be able to tell us exactly what the weakness is, because it sure doesn’t stand out.
