The Real MVP

Watching football this past weekend the real MVP made his case even stronger and yet he's most likely not going to even be a thought when it comes to award time. JJ Watt had a sack, a strip fumble, a fumble recovery, and then a receiving touchdown all in one game. This isn't the first time he's done this in a game this season. Watt has 11 and a half sacks and has 4 touchdowns on the season that's unheard of for a player that plays on the defensive side of the ball. He's even returned an interception for a touchdown. The season Watt is having is definitely MVP worthy, but since he doesn't play the pretty boy position (Quarterback) the award most likely is going to go to either Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, or Peyton Manning. This isn't me writing about how the quarterbacks don't deserve to win the award, but explaining why Watt should win the award.

The Houston Texans are 6-6 not destined for the playoffs while Rodgers, Brady, and Manning are leading their respective teams to the playoffs and they all have the ability to make other players better, but the award is veered toward the most valued player on the team and it's a shame that it has turned into an offensive player's award. I'd love to see Watt walk away with the MVP, he's had an impact on the Texans defense that might equal the same impact that Brady and co have on the offensive side of the ball. The defensive player of the year should walk away with the MVP, but it'll forever the pretty boy's time to shine.
