I’ve come to the realization that I can watch anyone or anything when they’re wearing a microphone. Inconsequential regular season? Preseason? Training Camp? I really don’t care. The player, the time of year, it doesn’t matter. Put it into a plunger the size of a rocket ship and shoot it directly into my spine. I don’t care.
In this version of mic’d up, we get to watch one of the newest Houston Texans, starting safety/former Pro Bowler/former college football meme, Tyrann Mathieu, run around the practice field. He tells his teammates to make big plays, sings along to a tune he likes, flexes while staring at the camera like I do after I rep 165 pounds on the bench press (Athletes! They’re just like us!), brags that he doesn’t wear gloves, and covers the Texans’ tight ends in man coverage.
Now, I’ve learned that I love a few things that I didn’t know I loved this training camp. One, I love watching Kevin Johnson get shredded by the Texans’ receivers. It feels good to see things from a different perspective. Two, I’m really glad that I’m a month of skipped meals away from weighing as much as Will Fuller V. And three, located in the same diorama as my feelings towards Kevin Johnson, I looooove watching Ryan Griffin fail to get open and drop passes when covered by Mathieu. It rules. Hopefully it transitions to the regular season and Mathieu can help a defense that ranked 27th in the league at covering tight ends last year.
All I need now is some hot sweet footage of Seantrel Henderson getting annihilated by J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, and Whitney Mercilus.
ANYWAYS, click on the link below to watch Mathieu in action.
