T.J. Watt broke the NFL’s mobile phone rule for a silly motive


Steelers’ defensive finish T.J. Watt might discover himself in sizzling water for a very pointless motive. Watt appeared on The Dan Patrick Present on Wednesday to speak about his pursuit of the single-season sack file, when he revealed he used his mobile phone within the locker room throughout halftime.

The whole lot centered on a play within the first half of Steelers vs. Ravens on January ninth when Tyler Hundley went to floor and was tagged by Watt. Initially the play was dominated a sack, earlier than it was reversed. This gave Watt one sack within the first half, and he was unable to get a second to interrupt the file.

Watt was instructed by coaches he was sitting at two sacks, however he discovered in a gaggle chat along with his brother that the official recreation stats confirmed him sitting at one.

Now, all that is innocuous sufficient. Essentially the most logical motive, curiosity, might be the proper one. Nonetheless, all of that is simply actually odd. It’s wholly weird that no person on the Steelers might provide Watt this data with out him utilizing his telephone. There wasn’t a coach, or an assistant, or perhaps a social media particular person there to say “sure, you broke the sack file” or “no, you didn’t.”

And if you wish to go down the rabbit gap of conspiracy, as is the type proper now, we see {that a} participant utilizing their telephone might be actually, actually problematic. The NFL has these guidelines in place for various causes — all of that are pretty apparent. A participant might be getting inside details about the opposite workforce from a broadcast, they might obtain teaching from outdoors the workforce, and even, perish the although, speaking to a bookie a couple of recreation’s odds and participant stats.

So whereas it’s pretty clear Watt didn’t imply to do something flawed, except you wish to have a look at him within the worst attainable mild, he did completely break NFL guidelines through the use of his mobile phone at half time. It’s a very unhealthy look in a recreation that led to extra time and resulted within the Steelers making the playoffs over the Chargers.

It’s going to be fascinating to see if the NFL takes any motion in opposition to Watt, or lets this one slide.
