Football is a team sport. In order for a team to emerge victorious in any contest, all players on offense and defense must work together in perfect cohesion, as a single body instead of a collection of individuals.
Some players, though, rise above the rest. They make such significant impacts that their acts overshadow the rest of the team. These players are superstars.
A great example of this can be found when one compares the Texans' 2011 and 2012 defenses. In 2011, no one player really stood out. There were many stars, but none were known as the face of the defense.
Last season, whenever the Texans' defense was mentioned, J.J. Watt immediately came to mind, and for good reason. He was the superstar, the player who could impact the game in dramatic fashion.
Players like Watt are so key to the success of NFL franchises. They have great chemistry with their teammates, and they never challenge their teams ideals, schemes and goals.
These players deserve to be awarded. They deserve to be recognized for their awesome accomplishments.
Who are these players who are so deserving of being awarded on the Texans? Of course, Watt is one of them, but who else? Read on, and find out.
