HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – The Texans season which came to an end Saturday at the hands of the Chiefs was a disappointment according to J.J. Watt.
“You can say moral victory. You can say ‘we came back from 2-5.’ You can say whatever you want but at the end of the day this league’s about winning championships and we didn’t win a championship.
“So it’s a disappointment.”
Whitney Mercilus, Watt’s sack partner in crime, didn’t agree with Watt’s take.
He said there wasn’t a damper put on the regular season by the loss.
“Nobody gave us a chance to be in [the playoffs] in the first place.”
The sentiment in the locker room is the players “believe” in the team and “this is not going to put a damper on anything.”
Mercilus said “of course” they are building something special and “we’ve got the future to look forward to.”
Cornerback Kareem Jackson said it didn’t tarnish what they accomplished but this wasn’t the showing they wanted to add to the regular season.
Watt isn’t worried about how others view the season.
“Quite frankly I don’t care what anybody else says about that, and yeah, we did accomplish some great things, but that doesn’t matter to me.”
The Texans falling short of the lone goal Watt has for each season.
“In this league, it’s about winning championships and we didn’t do that.”
