Pro Football Talk Calls Out J.J. Watt On Twitter For "Seeking Attention"

Get your popcorn ready, folks.

This is probably not the type of guy you want to piss off, PFT.

The media both loves and hates J.J. Watt at the same time. I suppose that is just what is bound to happen when you're an ultra-talented and ultra-rich sports superstar in America. Hell, LeBron James had to win a championship in friggin' CLEVELAND of all places before the nation's pundits got off his back for a couple of days.

So consider me unsurprised when NBC's Pro Football Talk (a/k/a Mike Florio) attempted to take a bite out of Watt on social media for trying to "seek attention" during the Copa America match between the United States and Argentina.

Apparently someone has a childish axe to grind with the best defensive player on the planet. Yikes. As for Watt's thoughts on the 4-0 drubbing that the Argentinians put on the U.S. Men's National Team at NRG Stadium, well...he had about the same reaction as the rest of us.

Keep on being yourself, J.J. I wouldn't change you for the world.

UPDATE: Florio just won't let this go.
