Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt receives a lot of attention for the work he does both on and off the field, but that doesn't mean everyone is impressed by the four-time Pro Bowler.

In fact, there are some who consider Watt to be trying too hard or being "fake." For those who question him, the 26-year-old NFL star just lets his resume speak for itself.

The Texans moved one step closer toward the playoffs with a 34-6 victory over the Tennessee Titans in Week 16. After the game, Watt tweeted out a message to credit the Texans for always playing as a team:

Yet one Twitter user wasn't buying Watt's message:

Watt decided he wasn't going to just sit there and take it. Wanting to give the critic some perspective, Watt tweeted back:

If being a "try hard" is what got Watt to being one of the best players in the NFL, there are worse things a person could be.
