J.J. Watt Picks Up Another AFC Defensive Player Of The Month Award

MDC is still demanding that Watt line up as a goal line tight end. I'm here to fuel the fire. - Bob Levey

Just bask in the glory of J.J. Watt and all will be well, Texans fans.

J.J. Watt is awesome. This is not an opinion but, rather, a fact. The defensive end has picked up two AFC Defensive Player of the Week awards (weeks 2 and 15) and now steps up to nab his second AFC Defensive Player of the Month award (September 2012 was the first), as announced by NFL Vice President of Football Communications Michael Signora.

Watt picked up the honors by producing 25 solo tackles, six sacks, three tipped passes, four forced fumbles, and 13 quarterback hits. All of this happened while offenses were doubling him, chipping him, and running the ball away from him. The last part makes the following December statistic even more impressive, Watt had 15 tackles for a loss. I want to say that again for more of an effect. Teams chose to run away from Watt and he still picked up 15 tackles for a loss in a month. Fifteen!

The Wisconsin alumnus has been disruptive all year, but the fact that he consistently maintained that is beyond impressive. All Texans fans have admitted to running out of words to describe how good J.J. has been this season, but I think it is safe to assume that, at minimum, there are six more coming his way: NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Praise Watt's December in the comments below and let him take you to that happy place filled with good Houston Texans memories.
