  • -My next guest is a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year

  • for the Houston Texans.

  • He also does incredible work through his charity,

  • the J.J. Watt Foundation.

  • Here he is, J.J. Watt!

  • Ah, come on. Look at you. -Thank you, my friend.

  • -Wow. Look at -- Look at -- Just surrounded by awards.

  • -Yeah. They're all papier-mâché. I made them myself.

  • -Oh! Oh, my gosh. Well, they look real.

  • -Yeah, thank you.

  • -The big NFL story from this past weekend --

  • Tom Brady's going back to the Super Bowl.

  • This time as quarterback of Tampa Bay.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • It's his 10th Super Bowl appearance.

  • So, to put this in context, you were 12 years old

  • when Tom Brady played his first Super Bowl in 2002.

  • We have a photo of what you looked like then.

  • That was you when he was in his first --

  • -[ Laughs ] Oh, my gosh.

  • -Look at that guy. -Yeah, yeah.

  • No, that was back when my mom would put a bowl on my head

  • to cut my hair. That's how we did it.

  • I don't know if anybody does that anymore,

  • but that was the thing we did back then.

  • -That was the way to do it. A bowl haircut. Absolutely.

  • -Yeah. But Tom's unbelievable.

  • I mean, it's incredible what he's done. It's --

  • I don't think people truly understand or appreciate

  • or can fathom how insanely difficult it is.

  • And the guy is just -- He is the greatest of all time.

  • -I mean, you've gone up against Brady a bunch of times.

  • In fact, we have a photo of one of the hits that you put on him.

  • Look at this. -[ Laughs ]

  • -Look at the -- Zoom in at Brady's face.

  • Can we get a close-up? -Here we go.

  • -He's like, "Ugh! Boy.

  • This is gonna hurt when I go down."

  • -I'll sign that one and send it to him,

  • and I'll make sure that he has that.

  • He can hang that on his locker right before he goes

  • and plays in the Super Bowl, so...

  • -This season obviously didn't go as you hoped it would.

  • Texas finished 4-12.

  • And there was a postgame press conference.

  • The only reason I'm bringing this up, J.J.,

  • is because there's a press conference

  • that went viral a few weeks ago

  • where you were talked about how you were feeling.

  • We have a clip. Let's just take a look at this.

  • -This is a job. We are getting paid a whole lot of money.

  • There are a lot of people that watch us and invest their time

  • and their money into buying our jerseys

  • and buying a whole bunch of [bleep].

  • So if you can't go out there and you can't work out,

  • you can't show up on time, you can't practice,

  • you can't want to go out there and win, you shouldn't be here!

  • There are people every week that still tweet you,

  • that still come up to you and say,

  • "Hey, we're still rooting for you. We're still behind you."

  • They have no reason whatsoever to. We stink!

  • [ Sighs ]

  • That's who I feel the most bad for, is our fans.

  • -Was that therapeutic? -A little bit.

  • You know, it was -- it was -- Any time an athlete is asked,

  • you know, "How do you get motivated

  • even though your team is out of the playoffs?"

  • Or, "How do you still go out there

  • and give it everything you have?"

  • It always frustrates me because -- how can you not?

  • Like, I -- I'll never understand that.

  • You know, I was a fan. I grew up in Wisconsin.

  • Where I obviously watched the Green Bay Packers.

  • Win, lose, or draw, you were wearing that jersey

  • and you were watching the game.

  • And I just -- I've never understood the fact

  • that we're athletes getting paid an immense amount of money

  • to play a child's game, and there's people all over

  • that support us and pour their energy in,

  • and I'll never understand how you could possibly

  • not give everything you got. -There's a lot up in the air

  • about where the Texans go from here.

  • There are reports that your quarterback, Deshaun Watson,

  • has requested a trade.

  • There's also speculation that I heard

  • that you could be traded.

  • How do you process that kind of chatter and those rumors?

  • And do you pay attention?

  • -I process it by going to Hawaii for a week,

  • and I probably should have stayed there.

  • I probably should have stayed. It was great.

  • -Everyone's -- -Lava flows.

  • -The word doesn't get to Hawaii?

  • -No. No. No. We --

  • The word in Hawaii was "manapua,"

  • and we were enjoying mai tais by the pool.

  • -Yeah. -So that was a good way for me

  • to cope with it, and I might just head back there.

  • -Your two brothers play for the Steelers.

  • We've had them on the show.

  • There are reports that the Steelers are interested

  • in trading for you.

  • If that were the case, and there's three Watts on one team,

  • has that ever happened, like, even back

  • when you were on the Pirates or even back in Pee Wee football?

  • -No, no. Derek and T.J. have played together in high school,

  • college, and the NFL, which is unbelievable,

  • but we never all played on the same team together.

  • I'm not even sure if it's physically possible

  • just from a bantering standpoint.

  • Like, somebody would, like, hide somebody's shoes.

  • Just, like, childhood games.

  • -Brothers. -Yeah. Exactly.

  • -Yeah. -Not that we do that.

  • Not that we do that, Jimmy. -No, no, no.

  • I had all three of you on the show.

  • We talked about it.

  • I can see exactly how much fun you have, man.

  • Hey, I want to talk about the J.J. Watt Foundation

  • because this thing is fantastic.

  • And you started this back when you were in college.

  • Can you talk about what the foundation does

  • and what inspired you to start it?

  • -Yeah, we started back when I was in college.

  • I appreciate you bringing it up.

  • We started when I was in college.

  • I was inspired by Myron Rolle, who was at Florida State

  • and had his own foundation while he was playing college football.

  • I thought that was incredible,

  • and it inspired me to start my own.

  • And one day I was volunteering at a school,

  • and the teacher was telling me a story

  • about how a child robbed his neighbor

  • with a screwdriver after school.

  • I said, "Well, doesn't he have anybody at home watching him?"

  • And she said, "He gets home at 3:00,

  • and his mom doesn't get home until 5:00."

  • And I said, "Don't you guys have sports or anything

  • after school he can do?"

  • They said, "Budget cuts haven't allowed us

  • to have any sports after school."

  • And I just personally took that as no child should ever suffer

  • because adults can't afford it.

  • You know, us as adults, we have to try and figure it all out.

  • But kids -- kids have no control.

  • They shouldn't be suffering and lacking opportunities

  • just because we can't give them to them.

  • So that's why I started my foundation.

  • We've done work in --

  • I believe it's over 33 states in the country now

  • we've donated to, and there's schools and everything,

  • and it's been awesome, and it's been extremely --

  • We have unbelievable fans and volunteers who help us out.

  • -It's so cool that you do that

  • and that you give back and make people happy.

  • Congrats on that. I always like to bring that up

  • because it's really cool that you do that.

  • -I appreciate that -J.J. Watt, everybody.

  • For more information on J.J.'s charity,

  • check out jjwfoundation.org. -I appreciate you, my friend.

  • Thank you. Have a good week. -Good to see you.
