Texans DE J.J. Watt learned Dolphins snap count by watching Hard Knocks

For a while it seemed there would be no Hard Knocks in 2012. Plenty of teams either declined when offered or came out and said they weren’t interested, like the Seahawks, Falcons, Broncos, Texans, Niners, and Redskins. In the end it was the Miami Dolphins who accepted HBO’s opportunity.

Looking back at the now completed series there were a few noteworthy moments. Chad Johnson being released was a popular one. So was the behind-the-scenes look at the trade of defensive back Vontae Davis. Running back Daniel Thomas getting chewed out by coach Philbin got some attention and left last year’s second round draft choice having to defend himself.

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt took in the series, or atleast parts of it, and had something else catch his eye.



Perhaps it helped him on Sunday? In Houston’s 30-10 victory over the Dolphins Watt registered 1.5 sacks.



Will Watt’s admission be a big enough reason to cause a team next year to say “thanks, but no thanks” to HBO? From what we found out this year many clubs have more than enough reasons already so maybe this one will just get added to the list.
