What TJ Watt Said About His Brother
The Pittsburgh Steelers star has firmly escaped J.J. Watt's shadow.
Yet despite all of his success, he's not ready to put himself on the same level as his older brother.
In an interview with The Pivot, T.J. told Channing Crowder that fans don't appreciate just how dominant J.J. was during his peak years.
"I want people to understand how great my brother truly was in his prime," the younger Watt said.
Fans commended T.J.'s humility while remembering just how incredible J.J. was at the height of his prowess.
J.J. won Defensive Player of the Year three times from 2012 to 2015.
He compiled 20.5 sacks in two separate seasons and tallied six takeaways and two touchdowns in 2014.
However, T.J. shouldn't sell himself short. He's compiled 65 sacks and 21 forced fumbles over the last four seasons.
The star linebacker finished a close second to Aaron Donald in the 2020 Defensive Player of the Year voting.
