J.J. Watt is "scary"


That's the word that Dolphins interim head coach Dan Campbell uses to describe watching J.J. Watt on film.

"I mean how do you stop this guy? what do you do to him?" Campbell said in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday.

The Dolphins game plan should be to put all five linemen on him to shut him down, Campbell joked.

"That sure doesn't seem to leave a lot for everybody else," Watt said, laughing. "That'd be perfectly fine by me. I look forward to the challenge. I'll see if Bill (O'Brien) can put that on the scout team cards this week."

Watt, who lines up all over, said his level of mobility changes from week to week. Some games he moves around more than others, but it's all about giving different defensive looks for the opposing offense to handle.

"He's as advertised," Campbell said. "He's an issue and someone that has to be accounted for on every play and he's the type of guy, ok, great you have 65 plays and you locked him down for 64, but if you don't get him on the 65th play he will kill you. He can wreck the game. He is obviously someone we are very aware of and will have a plan for."

The Texans face the Dolphins on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for noon C.T. on CBS KHOU-11 and SportsRadio 610.
