Belichick Says JJ Watt Reminds Him of Lawrence Taylor, So the NFL Made a JJ Watt-Lawrence Taylor Mashup (Video)
On Wednesday, in advance of this weekend’s Patriots-Texans game in Houston, Pats coach Bill Belichick said that Houston’ JJ Watt reminded him a lot of NFL legend Lawrence Taylor. And if anybody would know it’s Belichick. He was the Giants’ linebackers coach and defensive coordinator for the first 10 years of Taylor’s historic career.
“There’s been very few players I would put in the same conversations with Taylor,” Belichick told reporters, “but I would put Watt there. It’s early in his career and he’s done a lot already. Taylor did it over a long period of time, but Watt’s done it pretty consistently now. He’s that same kind of player.”
That’s some pretty high praise. So obviously the NFL created a JJ Watt-Lawrence Taylor mashup.
It’s as awesome as it sounds. Take a look:
You certainly can’t deny the similarities. Hopefully JJ Watt just stays away from the cocaine and underage prostitutes.
