New York radio host rips Texans star J.J. Watt
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
Texans star pass rusher J.J. Watt gets plenty of love from the media, but we’ve found at least one person who isn’t a huge fan.
Mike Francesa, who is a well-known New York sports radio host, spent more than five minutes on his radio show ripping Watt and the Texans for having him take a direct snap on offense near the goal line during the team’s 30-0 playoff loss to the Chiefs on Saturday.
With the Texans near the Chiefs’ end zone and trailing 13-0, Bill O’Brien put Watt and Vince Wilfork on offense with Watt taking a direct snap and trying to follow the blocking of Wilfork. Watt was tackled for a loss, and then Brian Hoyer was intercepted on the next play.
Francesa works himself up into a lather about Watt playing offense, but then he attacks Watt as an overall player, saying, “Watt didn’t even make a play in that game. All he did was fall down four or five times. Please. I’m so sick of hearing about Watt. It’s ridiculous. His team never wins anything.”
