David Bakhtiari Trashes T.J. Watt

We were just talking about how Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt looks better than Green Bay Packers cornerback Kevin King earlier. Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari does not agree.

Bakhtiari completely trashed Watt when asked about him by the Journal-Sentinel.

Check this out.

It’s probably a good thing Bakhtiari plays tackle — which he is very good at — and isn’t a talent evaluator. I guess if he were, he’d probably be about as good at it as, say… Ted Thompson.

And that is to say, not very.

No one knows what the Packers have in Vince Biegel, Watt’s teammate at Wisconsin. However, that isn’t going to change, so long as the Packers keep playing him just 20 snaps a game.

But let’s be honest about King. He’s been a disappointment so far.

Perhaps it’s the lingering shoulder injury. Perhaps he wasn’t ready to be a starter. Perhaps the Packers just erred in picking King over Watt.

Kevin King is not the No. 1 corner the Packers thought, at least to this point.

We’ll give it the usual three years to make a determination. Early returns are not positive.

Watt did have a sack on Sunday. I personally did not notice who it came against. Might have been Jason Spriggs, but he did more than King.

    I hate packers fans so much. Such knee jerk reaction fans. What packers OLB recorded a similar stat line of 5 tackles and 1 sack last week?

    “Watt did have a sack on Sunday. I personally did not notice who it came against. Might have been Jason Spriggs, but he did more than King.”

    Do these writers even watch the Packer games?

    Maybe Bakhtiari should worry about Lane Taylor, maybe explain to him that having his back to the defense (while not blocking anyone) is not the best way to protect his QB.

      Or to go about life in general on a football field. See: Clifton, Chad.
