The Pittsburgh Steelers were more than happy with the debut of rookie outside linebacker Tj Watt who made an impact not only on the game, but in the record books against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Watt became first rookie in three decades to record two sacks and an interception in an NFL debut.
While that would be plenty to satisfy any team or fan, it did little to satisfy Watt.
“We felt like we were in the backfield all of the time, but we have to finish plays,” Watt said.
“We had a few sacks left on the table, from my point of view.”
“I was just having some fun, just trying to bring some energy,” Watt continued. “The guys love seeing a little celebration after a sack.”
Watt’s debut excited the Steelers fan base and quieted any critics, for now, who may have criticized the Steelers for their selection of Watt so high.
