JJ Watt wants to sack Friday Night Lights quarterback

SI.com came up with what it is describing as the definitive list of movie quarterbacks, and it asked Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt which one he'd most like to sack.

If you can remember all the way back to when Friday Night Lights was a movie about a non-fiction book about a high school football team in west Texas, then maybe you can empathize with J.J. Watt on this. 


He really didn't like the quarterback from Dallas Carter. 

SI.com came up with what it is describing as the definitive list of movie quarterbacks, and it asked Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt which one he'd most like to sack. 

"The guy from Dallas Carter High in the Friday Night Lights movie," he said. "I’d hit him so hard, it’d knock the sucker right out of his coach’s mouth. Go, MOJO!"

In both the book and movie, Dallas Carter was depicted as this cocky big-city school whose players were more or less given carte blanche in the halls of the high school. The school that inspired the book, Odessa Permian, lost to Carter in the 1988 Class 5A state semifinals.

Watt also took a swipe at Rudy when asked if there were any movie QBs he'd have trouble sacking. 

"None," he said. "I can tell you who I wouldn’t have trouble with: the Georgia Tech QB in Rudy. He seemed to go down pretty easy."

Watt also added he'd choose Jennifer Aniston as a co-star if he ever landed a movie role. 

"Franchise pick," he said.
