Yes, and the copy-cat NFL has all defensive linemen throwing up their hands any chance they get to imitate Watt. DL have largely ignored the importance of the batted pass because they always got attention for sacks instead. Now that Watt is blocking passes AND is a media darling, the rest of the NFL is following suit.
It is unrealistic to think Von can consistently have games like he did last week. If that is where we set our expectations, we will be sorely disappointed. I personally do not think that either player will separate themselves for a clear leader, and the race for DPOY will be neck-and-neck the rest of the season.
