Watch J.J. Watt Apologize To Deshaun Watson In Sad Video

'We wasted one of your years'

by

J.J. Watt clearly is embarrassed by the effort the Texans put forth this season — just ask Deshaun Watson

Watt in last December called out his Houston teammates in a passionate rant about respecting and honoring the league and fans who make their dream job possible. Watt sang a familiar tune Sunday afternoon, albeit in a more personal fashion.

NFL Films cameras captured the star defensive lineman apologizing to Watson after the Texans’ last-second loss to the Tennessee Titans. Watt apparently felt remorse for what, according to him, was a wasting of Watson’s great 2020 season.

Check out this sad video tweeted Tuesday afternoon by NFL Films:

A bit dramatic, to be sure, but it’s hard to knock a player for caring as much as Watt so obviously does.

So, what’s next for Watt, Watson and the Texans?

The franchise seemingly was on an upward trajectory after a trip to the divisional round last season. But the trading of DeAndre Hopkins, firing of Bill O’Brien and an ugly 4-12 record have sunk Houston back into NFL irrelevance. The Texans still haven’t advanced past the divisional round since joining the NFL in 2002.

Still, Houston has a franchise quarterback in Watson, and thus has far more going for it than most NFL franchises.
