    He might do it, guy is serious about being great.

    He's was the guy I wanted in 2011, but we took Locker which I was happy about so we'll see how things work out.

    So many things can go wrong. . . . . . . Mainly injuries/wear and tear.

    Its funny how people like to jump on bandwagons so quickly and claim someone will be 'the best ever' ... No doubt that he is a great player, but he has got get several more years under his belt before he is in the conversation.

    You never know what could happen. Maybe he gets injured, maybe he ends up on a different team or under a different staff that can't utilize his talents as well, maybe teams do better at gameplanning for him, etc. There are just to many variable to project someone who is in there 3rd year as a pro to be 'the greatest ever'. We have seen a lot of guys flash talent, then fade away. More than likely that is what will happen to this guy as well. Nothing against JJ (other than he is a Texan) just the chances aren't in his favor ... thats why its so hard to be the greatest ever.

    Now if the media had their way, we would be able to induct players into the HOF after their rookie seasons.

    Yea definately. I think he will have several severe concussions that will force an early retirement where he'll have to work at the Houston local Dairy Queen.

    Ray Lewis. Revis. Polomalu. Ed Reed.

    There's also a lot of other good D-Linemen out there.

    All depends on how long he plays. D-Lineman don't go long after 10 yrs, and that's even if they are good enough to play well that long. Unlike a QB or WR or even CB, D-lineman decline fast from consistent hits. Watt was already wearing an arm brace during just his 2nd season.
