Don’t blame HBO’s “Hard Knocks” for the Miami Dolphins’ 30-10 walloping at the hands of the Houston Texans.
On Tuesday, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt created a buzz after telling NBC Sports he picked up the Dolphins’ snap count from watching “Hard Knocks.”
Watt clarified those comments Wednesday morning on “NFL AM,” telling insider Steve Wyche it’s par for the course for defenses to do all they can to get an offense’s snap count.
“I think that is getting taken out of context that is something you can take off about any TV copy of any game tape,” Watt said. “I happen to get it from the show just because they had the microphones out there but you can get that from anywhere. People are blowing that up to be a bigger story than it needs to be.”
We will go out on a limb: “Hard Knocks” or no “Hard Knocks,” the Dolphins weren’t beating that Texans team Sunday.
