The Saints Won The Toss, Elected To Receive, And J.J. Watt Said, "Bad Decision"

New, comments

Peep some bonus footage of J.J. Watt wired for sound against the Saints and listen to an official attempt to explain why they rarely throw flags despite Watt getting held egregiously play after play.

I wouldn't want J.J. Watt pointing at me, so I guess I couldn't hack it on the Saints' offensive line.

Part I of the "J.J. Watt Mic'd Up Against The Saints Experience" debuted yesterday, and it's no exaggeration to say it may be the greatest piece of American film-making since "Citizen Kane." As with any good production these days, there was some footage that didn't make it into the initial cut. Thanks to SoundFX, you can now get even more J.J. for your viewing pleasure; coincidentally, it happens to be on the very same day Watt was named AFC Defensive Player of the Month. How's that for symmetry?

In addition to what you've already seen, the bonus footage allows you to see how frustrated Watt gets with being held all the time, as well as a terrible explanation from an official as to why flags don't get thrown as often as they should. We'll also learn the answer to the great riddle of who J.J. was talking to when he said, "You asked for it, you got it."

Watch the video here and bask anew in how phenomenal it is that we get to root for this guy week after week.
