J.J. Watt is arguably the best overall player in the NFL.

His three Defensive Player of the Year and four straight first-team All-Pro honors are proof of that. The 27-year-old defensive end basically has his ticket punched to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

But according to Michael Irvin, Watt is to blame for the Houston Texans’ lack of a Super Bowl in his five years in the NFL.

“Whose fault is it? He’s the star of the team,” Irvin said, via the Houston Chronicle. “If the Dallas Cowboys lose on my watch, it’s my fault. If you’re the baddest man on the team, you’ve got to take it both ways when it ain’t going right and you ain’t winning, that’s on you.

“J.J. Watt’s been the baddest man in the league and they haven’t gotten close to any kind of championship.”

Irvin said that Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly is better than Watt because he played in a Super Bowl this year. Never mind the fact that NFL MVP Cam Newton was under center.

That’s a hot take coming from a guy who played alongside two Hall of Famers for most of his career. Irvin, of course, was fortunate enough to win three titles playing alongside Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman.

Watt, on the other hand, has been the leader of a team with guys like Brian Hoyer and Matt Schaub at quarterback. Still, the Texans have been to the playoffs in three of those five seasons, but never past the second round.

It’s ironic that of all the defensive players to call out for not delivering a Super Bowl, he picked on Watt. The former Badger has actually gone back to his tight end roots periodically and he has five career touchdowns.

But obviously it’s Watt — not the lack of a franchise quarterback or one of the Texans’ other personnel issues — who is to blame for the Texans not reaching the Super Bowl yet.
