Saints News, 12/2/15: J.J. Watt Politely Suggests the Saints Find A New Right Tackle

Saints OT Zach Strief got totally embarrassed by Watt on Sunday. John Breech at has more: The idea of Saints right tackle Zach Strief trying to block J.J. Watt by himself is such a crazy one that even Saints fans thought it was a bad idea. Watt also thought it was a bad idea and we know that because the Texans defensive end was mic'd up for Sunday's game. Watt tallied seven quarterback hits and two sacks against the Saints, and the best part is that he was talking trash the entire time he did it. "You guys might want to try somebody else at right tackle," Watt says after sacking Drew Brees. "The quarterback is getting smoked back there. I like Drew, I don't like hitting him like that."
