Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is gearing up with his team for the 2020 NFL season, in what will mark the most different and unique season in history, and is discussing what he says is a “new normal” in football.
“I mean, if I’m being perfectly honest, it’s somewhat nice from an actual football standpoint,” Watt said, according to Peter King (h/t Pro Football Talk). “Think about a normal training-camp day: You’re in the building from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. And you got a whole bunch of meetings. Now, we are very efficient in our meetings. We get things done. Nobody’s screwing around. Everybody’s locked in. It’s just really been good with our Zoom meetings.
“Just purely being in the comfort of your home doing your Zoom meetings, and not having to rush into the stadium early in the morning. It is a nice feature.”
Despite the new restrictions and challenges associated with playing the upcoming NFL season amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the NFL seems ready to kick off their season on September 6th.
