The Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 season is officially over. After finishing the year 8-8, the Steelers, and their vast fan base, has another long offseason awaiting them. Just because the games are done doesn’t mean we stop providing you with features, commentary and opinions to tide you over throughout the offseason!

Today in the black-and-gold links article we take at how T.J. Watt, who is entering his fourth season in the NFL, is pleased with where he is, but is far from satisfied.

Let’s get to the news:

  • When you watch T.J. Watt play football you might not realize he isn’t a seasoned veteran on his second, or third, contract. No, he is just entering his fourth year and is far from done when it comes to his production/development.

It’s almost all about production for T.J. Watt, but even more than that it’s about a philosophy that drives him to produce.

”As a defensive player you can impact the game on every single play,” Watt explained after the Steelers had beaten the Dolphins, 27-14, in late October at Heinz Field. “When you do get those chances, it’s about capitalizing and making the most of them. It’d be a good play just to be able to get the sack and get the quarterback down. Why not make it a great play and at least go for the football and try to rip it out?

”Trying to take plays from good to great is the field that I’m in.”

Watt had punctuated the win over Miami with a sack of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, a strip of the football and a fumble recovery at the Dolphins’ 22-yard line midway through the fourth quarter with the Steelers ahead, 24-14.

It was his second sack and second forced fumble of the night, but it could have been better.

”To pick it up and run it in for a touchdown would have been the ultimate,” Watt maintained.
