The Houston Texans are now sitting at 1-4, and defensive end J.J. Watt is clearly starting to get frustrated.
“Yeah, I’d say there’s frustration,” Watt said after the loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday.
Watt was asked if the performance of receiver Andre Johnson, who was released by the Texans at the end of last season, surprised him. Johnson had a great game, and scored two touchdowns for the Colts. The Texans defensive end really let his irritated feelings show then.
“He’s a good football player,” Watt said, via NBC Sports. “He made some plays. I’m not sure, I don’t cover him. So I couldn’t tell you what happened.”
Some may have interpreted the “I don’t cover him” comment as Watt criticizing the secondary, but it’s likely just more of the frustration coming through.
It was a smart move for the Colts to feature Johnson, as the Texans clearly underestimated their willingness to get him the ball in his first game back in Houston.
