When it was announced that Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger would be starting today's game against the Texans, Mettenberger responded by taking a few celebratory selfies. This did not sit well with Texans All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt, because J.J. Watt is a monster who exists solely to crush weaker life forms, and he simply cannot tolerate any tomfoolery.
In the fourth quarter, Watt sacked Mettenberger and busted out a celebration that featured him taking a fake selfie over the quarterback's crumpled body. He was asked about it after the game:
Mettenberger shouldn't take this too personally, though, because Watt will even say stuff like this about his own teammates. Grantland's Robert Mays wrote a great profile of Watt in the offseason, which included the star's thoughts on teaming up with rookie sensation Jadeveon Clowney on the defensive line:
"I haven't really thought about it at all," Watt says of his new teammate. "What I told him when he got drafted was, 'Listen, I don't care what people have said about you before. I don't care about what you're going to do. I'm basing everything I see on what I see with my own two eyes: how hard you work, how much you study. I'm going to be an open book.'
"Now, I can't make anybody learn. I can't make a guy work hard. I can't make him come in and do extra work. But if he wants it, I'm here."
It is very possible that nobody takes football more seriously than J.J. Watt.
