T.J. Watt is not trying to match his older brother sack for sack. Honest.It's just sort of happening that way for the second-year Pittsburgh
Steelers linebacker Ryan Griffin Jersey , whose six quarterback takedowns through the first five weeks of the season have him tied with Cincinnati defensive end Carlos
Dunlap and Houston Texans star J.J. Watt ??the oldest of the three Watt brothers
in the NFL ??for the league lead."I can't get caught up in any of the
statistical things," T.J. Watt said. "I'm sure my mom thinks it's a lot cooler
than I do."Connie Watt's not the only one. Steelers defensive coordinator Keith
Butler is pretty impressed too, particularly with the way the 24-year-old Watt
has assimilated so quickly. Then again, Butler knows Watt's unique family
dynamic played a role in his rapid adjustment to life in the NFL."I think he's
kind of grown up in that atmosphere," Butler said. "He had a good idea what it
took to be successful in the NFL before we got him."Watt racked up seven sacks
as a rookie in 2017 and appears ready to take a leap forward in 2018. He opened
his second season by getting three sacks in Cleveland and added three more in
last week's 41-17 dismantling of Atlanta , including a strip-sack of Falcons
quarterback Matt Ryan that teammate L.J. Fort fell on in the end zone for a
touchdown."We just wanted to show who we really were," Watt said. "We weren't
proud of the performances we put out in the first few showings of the season,
and we just wanted to go out there and show what we've been working on for the
past few weeks. We just want to show the consistency now."That has been
something unattainable for the Steelers (2-2-1) through a wildly uneven opening
month.The two-time defending AFC North champions find themselves in an unusual
spot heading into Sunday's visit to Cincinnati (4-1), particularly on defense.
Pittsburgh is 29th in yards allowed but also tops the NFL with 19
sacks Arian Foster Jersey White , on pace to surpass the club record of 56 set a year ago.Coach Mike Tomlin downplayed the idea the Steelers are blitzing more
this season to overcome shaky play by a revamped secondary. Maybe, but Butler is
certainly not shy about sending players from all over.Eight Steelers already
have at least one sack. Fort picked up just the third of his six-year career
against the Falcons and free-agent signee Jon Bostic's 2 1-2 are a career high.
Butler isn't trying to read too much into his team's success creating pressure,
perhaps because it has been so spotty.The week before Pittsburgh's pass rush
harassed and harangued Ryan, it only brought down Baltimore's Joe Flacco twice
in 44 attempts as the Ravens pulled away in the second half."Sometimes you're
lucky, sometimes you're not," Butler said. "Sometimes you're good. Sometimes
you're bad."Butler called the key to blitzing successfully a mixture of timing
and disguise. Having the right people in the right places certainly helps.
Pittsburgh overwhelmed the Falcons on the same day veteran cornerback Joe Haden
shut down Atlanta star wide receiver Julio Jones. The Steelers also had
nickelback Mike Hilton in the mix after he sat out the Baltimore loss with a
right elbow injury.The 5-foot-9, 184-pound Hilton has carved out a niche as an
unlikely enforcer off the edge thanks in part to impeccable timing. Hilton has a
preternatural ability to guess the snap count ??he proudly points out he's
jumped offside just once in his career ??and his quickness and aggressiveness
give Butler another option."I try to set the tone any way I can," said Hilton,
who had two quarterback hits against Atlanta. "I wouldn't say guys look up to
me Brandon Dunn Jersey White , but they see how I play and they're like, 'He's the smallest guy on the field and he's playing physical and being aggressive.'
It just gives everybody the same energy."The key for Pittsburgh is finding a way
to sustain it. Watt's play ??massively successful one week, decidedly quiet the
next ??is symbolic of a unit still rounding into form. He isn't worried about
trying to keep pace with his big brother as much as he is trying to make sure
he's hardly the only one getting to the quarterback."I don't think anyone in
this scheme is meant to eat up blocks," Watt said. "We all have great
opportunities. It's awesome when those guys push the pocket. It allows the
quarterback to step back and allows us to get a little wider rushes, and also
get the quarterback in our hands."And then ??Watt and the Steelers hope ??on the
ground.NOTES: S Morgan Burnett (groin), LB Fort (ankle) and WR Darrius
Heyward-Bey (ankle) did not practice and are unlikely to play against the
Bengals. ... S Terrell Edmunds (ankle) and LB Vince Williams (hamstring) were
full participants for a second straight day. Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson
said recently that he’s learned the importance of “keeping plays alive” by
watching video of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but there may be other
things he can glean from the way Rodgers has played the game.Rodgers is expected
to have less freedom to make changes at the line of scrimmage under new coach
Matt LaFleur, but he’s spent the last few years making reads and altering calls
before the snap. Watson has not had that freedom in his first two seasons, but
told Albert Breer of that the Texans are putting more on his shoulders
this time around.“I can just have a lot more information on my plate Womens Whitney Mercilus Jersey , whenever I need it,” Watson said. “The past couple years, it was more calling the plays. Or they’d give me two plays,
for different looks. Now I can have five, six different plays in my head, and
make sure we get in the right one. Biggest focus is really just taking that
leadership role as a quarterback, and mastering my craft with my knowledge of
the offense, knowledge of the defense and being able to get us in the right
plays.”Head coach Bill O’Brien said that he thinks having a full offseason will
be beneficial to Watson after last year’s ACL rehab and he also stressed the
need for everyone to do more to avoid the sacks that piled up last season. That
point is a crucial one as there’s not much difference between plays if the
quarterback winds up on the ground a few seconds after the snap.
