Man, Do we really have to do this? Am I really gonna have to think about that Texans loss again and relive arguably the most traumatic experience I’ve had to endure in the last 6 months? OK, here we go I guess. Let’s address the Andy Dalton/JJ Watt beef.

AKA the lamest beef in the history of pro sports. Look, as much as I want to make a big stink and rush to Dalton’s defense that’s just not going to happen. Everyone knows JJ Watt is an insufferable douchebag and his fake tough guy, all work no play persona has worn thin on the national audience, but Dalton absolutely had that dig coming his way. Does he deserve blame for that loss? I don’t think so, everyone played like shit, but the bottom line is if you’re the quarterback of an 8-0 football team playing at an MVP level and your squad lays an egg like that you’re going to get chirped. Everyone wants to throw stones at the king. Only reason this is even a media spectacle is because JJ Watt is involved. They eat up everything he does like a box of donuts in the office breakroom. Watt probably carved that Red Ryder joke into a piece of bark he found chopping wood in the forest and kept in his locker all week, just staring at it hoping that he’d get a chance to stand in front of a camera and channel his inner Chappelle. That’s just what JJ Watt does. Andy has every right to be pissed that an opposing player is talking shit about him. He also had every chance to squash this beef right there on that podium and make this whole thing a non-issue, but as we all know, Andy isn’t, let’s just say he isn’t the most confrontational guy you’ll ever meet, so let me go ahead and say what Andy should have said last night: JJ Watt can say whatever he wants. If he wants to try to be funny and tell shitty dad jokes that’s on him. They’re 4-5, we’re 8-1. They aren’t going anywhere this year, we’re going to win the division and probably clinch a first round bye. This is a non-issue. In fact, ya’ll are going to forget all about this once someone else finds something to get up in arms about. Probably next week when Cam starts dabbing in the endzone again. We clear? Good. Next question.
