    watt got short circuited - Houston Texans Message Boards

    Seems like some of the other fans called him out on this bogus attempt for an excuse. Lol, I found this funny.

    I didn't go into the board and read, but let's not let a post by a fan get anyone worked up. And, you do it until you get away with it...a lesson I think they learned from the Baltimore game when the Baltimore o line was tackling/holding our defensive guys.

    Glad to see the team learn from past mistakes :D

    Well, JJ Watt probably did some borderline cheating when he put on 90lbs of muscle in six months, so let's call it even. No offense to the man, but I don't think it was all cheese curds.

    Did Brady even throw a ball close enough to Watt that he might've swatted it? It sure didn't seem so.

    Of course they "borderline" cheated - they blocked him. What nerve!

    Agreed. Houston has some really good & knowledgeable fans, not that different from the Pats fans here. A much better crew than a lot of other teams have following them, and they seem ready to police their own, as we try and do.

    Actually, he did. There were a couple that were a little too close for comfort for my old ticker. :)

    I am pretty sure Chandler Jones had a nice swat. Facing him in practice likely prepared Brady for Watt and anyone else who swats all the time.

    Were they within a whisker of being batted down?
    I defer to your expertise in that measurement. :D

    I don't think he came close to swatting any passes, but he did beat the crap out of Brady.

    IDK, I saw several Texans defenders diving at offensive linemen's knees last night (which they are noted for). That is borderline cheating. I saw several dirty plays which could have drawn fouls by the Texans last night.

    Lets just say this the Texans have some flaws on Offense but i wouldn't like the face that Healthy Defense on Turf. Watt got some Big Shots on Brady and also some of their Corners off the Edge. Lets hope they lose another one and we win out.

    As others have noted - they police their own well enough over there by the looks of it.

    We have our own share of forum donkeys to worry about.

    I'm hoping that the 'bushy' character who signed up just to post smack in that thread isn't one of ours - that would be douchey in the extreme.

    Come on now, you didn't think 100% of our fans were intelligent now did you? Every fandom has its village idiot.

    Of course not, as you mentioned, we all have these types of fans but the thread was created because I've just never heard of "borderline" cheating and delusional holding calls.

    I guess it was just the context of the complaint, not the complaining itself. No disrespect to your fanbase, over this week, I've found most of them to be very classy and fun to chat with.

    Any longtime poster here knows that Patriots Nation has enough village idiots to fill an entire idiot village. (But then their idiot village would be overrun by the vast idiot army of Jets fans.)

    Um, they faced them on turf last night. If they face them in the playoffs at Reliant, it would be on grass. And not even good grass as Welker surely remembers.

    Exactly

    This forum has a number of posters with such rabbit eared sensitivity that they get their panties in a bunch if some freakin fan of another team on the entire flippin internet disses the Pats or a player in any way.

    Other than the Saints I cannot recall another fan base that came here in such numbers and yet there was zero trolling. I hadn't signed up for another team's forum in a long time but did because I was impressed that they all came in, stated their case for their team and yet there was none of the Ravenesque crap. I'm not going to call them out for their 5% which we certainly have here.

    About this reffing thing, the player ran right into Welker and knocked him off his route.

    The ball landed 5 yards beyond Welker a half second later. Can Welker run 5 yards in a half second? Yes, or no, maybe, maybe not. It doesn't matter. The ball was close enough and Welker was obstructed.

    The ball was uncatchable? No effin duh! Welker was stopped in his tracks. of course he wasn't going to catch it--after getting stopped in his tracks.

    The only bad call I saw was Hernandez being called for an OPI that ended the drive. That was positively bizarre.

    I didn't want to put this on the internet, but since you mentioned it, I think there is a very good chance he's using PED's during the off season, but from my experience in football that is almost to be expected, as the majority of them do take some form of PED's during the off season to bulk up, then they stop taking them about two weeks before training camp. Listen to Victor Conte on Joe Rogan's podcast, and you'll realize PED's are far more wide spread in the NFL than most people realize.

    Thanks and right back at you guys :)

    I personally think it was a BS call, but that's like cutting off your own leg and then complaining that you stepped in gum with the other one. When you play that badly you have no right to complain about officiating. Trust me you guys didn't need any help from the refs to win that one, lol.

    Thanks for the good words in general, it's a breath of fresh air to play a team with educated and mature fans for the most part when we often clash with Titan and Jags fans who express themselves with a similar amount of eloquence as your Jets fan friends.

    Hopefully we can start up a good rivalry with you guys and have some epic playoff battles for years to come.

    Well you don't want to take an idiot on our forum's post and turn it into a Watt PED conspiracy theory, I mean there's no way to tell with ANY player but he's never even been hinted at doing anything like that.

    And the missed helmet to helmet on the one sack on Brady. And while it didn't affect the play, the refs should have thrown a flag for PI on Stallworth's TD, which he had to catch with one arm because the defender had the other.

    What really had me laughing at those complaining about the call is that the player who deliberately knocked into Welker wasn't even the guy covering him. It was the "help" defender. Pass interference is never so obvious as when it's committed by a third party.
