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

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

Every part 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 document.

Watt was advised by coaches he was sitting at two sacks, however he realized 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 right one. Nevertheless, all of that is simply actually odd. It’s wholly weird that no person on the Steelers may provide Watt this info with out him utilizing his cellphone. There wasn’t a coach, or an assistant, or perhaps a social media individual there to say “sure, you broke the sack document” or “no, you didn’t.”

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

So whereas it’s pretty clear Watt didn’t imply to do something fallacious, except you wish to take a look at him within the worst doable mild, he did completely break NFL guidelines by utilizing his cellphone at half time. It’s a very dangerous look in a recreation that resulted in extra time and resulted within the Steelers making the playoffs over the Chargers.

It’s going to be attention-grabbing to see if the NFL takes any motion towards Watt, or lets this one slide.
