Around here we know JJ Watt as the guy that nearly retired after Eric Fisher booted him and his team into oblivion. It was a big moment for Kansas City Chiefs fans because Fisher has been slowly developing as the former top pick and we're starting to see him turn into a better player. It's all fun and games from our standpoint.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk isn't always the most popular guy but a recent exchange he had with JJ Watt is going to make Florio more popular around here. Florio called out Watt's "I don't want attention but everyone look at me" routine that he does.
Let's recap it.

Florio from the top rope!!!
"Why does everyone always want to talk about me? I'm just minding my own business and seeking no attention at all." https://t.co/K67Av3zsDM— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) June 22, 2016
@ProFootballTalk you do know how Twitter works, right? If you don't want to see it, stay off my page. Take your saltiness elsewhere.— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) June 22, 2016
I do stay off your page. I follow your team's page. They retweeted it. That's how Twitter works, right? https://t.co/4arzpy1LzB— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) June 22, 2016
Take your false humility elsewhere.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) June 22, 2016
Let's be clear. There's nothing wrong with wanting a little bit of attention. A lot of players want attention and they should. They work really hard at their craft. However, Watt tries to act as if he doesn't want the attention, which bugs people. He clearly does. Just call a spade a spade, dude.
