Vince Williams Calls TJ Watt The ‘Most NFL Ready Rookie I’ve Seen’

Social media can be a distraction. It can certainly be divisive. But sometimes, it’s just awesome. Today was one of those days. Vince Williams did a Q&A with Steelers’ Nation on all his teammates. In particular, he praised T.J. Watt, calling him the most NFL ready rookie he’s ever seen.

Let’s just hope Watt has more chances to practice that dance. While Watt may have cooled down a bit from a hot start, a groin injury didn’t help matters, he’s tied for second on the team with three sacks. He’s also played a high volume of snaps, something most rookie aren’t capable of doing, and surely a testament to Williams’ statement.

Some info on other players.

On newest Steeler Joe Haden.

Old man Big Ben.

Ryan Shazier. The second tweet asking if Shazier talks trash on Sundays.

On Jesse James replacing Heath Miller.

And B.J. Finney, as American as apple pie.

There’s several more so if you have Twitter, go through Williams’ timeline. Cool, funny insights into the Steelers’ locker room. And a rare moment where I support going to 280 characters per tweet.

    Ha, that was pretty fun to read.

  • Spencer Krick

    His description of Rosie had me laughing.

  • lonnie

    Wished he would update his status for Sunday. We need him. He looked awesome last week before the injury.

  • Joe

    Where’s the love for BJ Finney and Chris Hubbard? Think they are a better unit with Finney in there. Hubbard did a great job with Houston. Sit Foster and rest Gilbert.

  • Shane Mitchell

    “Big Play Gay. Super smart, probably going to be a DC in the future. Still holds the record for longest TD celebration ever.”

  • Anthony Palmerston

    I really need Watt and Dupree to start bringing the heat. No sacks from them Sunday? Come on!

  • Alex Kozora

    Smart as they come. And more importantly, willing to communicate and teach. Ego left at the door.

  • Taylor Williams

    They were bringing the heat. Just didn’t get sacks. As long as they get pressure, it’s fine.

  • colingrant

    Subtly insightful. He’s pretty sharp.

  • gdeuce

    they were getting double teamed a lot

  • Alan Tman

    Watt reminds me of a bigger Jack Ham. By year two they will not pass to his side of the field when he drops into coverage.

  • Joeybaggadonuts

    Early on he was maligned…IMHO-never really out of position. A consummate pro!

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I think he may be the biggest turnaround player in Steelers history both in skill and likeability.

    TJ was playing like a man possessed until the groin. You can definitely tell that has slowed him just a bit. Maybe still thinking about it and doesn’t want to reinjure it. We need him and Dupree to start bringing it. Bud needs to start showing some of that late 2016 fire that he had. Been absent all year.

  • will

    Dupree is a disappointment so far. We thought “splash” and we got JJ average.

  • will

    Maybe Watt is still injured and playing “through” it.

  • Rick McClelland

    Get Finney and Rosie out in the flat together. LOL. One can catch and the other can block. It will be like a steam roller going down hill.

    Vince echoed what coaches Tomlin, Butler, Porter and Olsavsky have said.


    I am with a few people on this board that think that Watt may not be fully recovered from that groin. We still need him out there. I feel very comfortable with his play on the outside, and it is just a matter of time before he starts imposing his will on offensive lines and force adjustments.

  • Anthony Palmerston

    I didn’t see much pressure being produced.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    id say that went to joey bosa last year.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    omg look for the dirty red one.

    Hard nose, great instincts, extremely hairy. Orange hair everywhere like he’s half orangoutang. 😂
