The current Defensive Player of the Year in the NFL, T.J. Watt, tied Michael Strahan's single-season sack record in 2021.
The J.J. Watt shadow no longer hangs over the Pittsburgh Steelers' best player. He isn't prepared to put himself on the same level as his older brother, despite all of his achievements.
T.J. stated to Channing Crowder in an interview with The Pivot that fans don't realise how powerful J.J. was during his prime.
The younger Watt stated, "I want people to realise how incredibly great my brother was in his heyday. "You can watch the movie again and see how unstoppable the guy was. absolute invincibility"
The five-time All-Pro, according to the 27-year-old, is still too far along in his career for him to be compared to him.
From 2012 to 2015, J.J. was awarded Defensive Player of the Year three times. He recorded two seasons of 20.5 sacks, six takeaways, and two touchdowns in 2014.
