Agreed. Witten is probably the most underappreciated TE of all time. People forget how dominant that man was 

Yea again I do think Gates was more dominant in his prime. But Witten over the course of his career might arguably be the most reliable receiver of all time.

It was only 12 snaps. But thats 12 more snaps than any other team in the NFL would ask their TE to block JJ Watt 1 on 1. 


IRVING, Texas -- How much do the Dallas Cowboys trust Jason Witten as a blocker?

Unofficially he was asked to block Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt 12 times without any help in their 20-17 overtime win. That’s a lot asking a tight end, even one of Witten’s caliber, to block who the Cowboys called the best defensive player they will face this season by himself.

Witten stonewalled him on a few of those plays. One of the highlights from that game was him ragdolling JJ.

I could block JJ Watt, 1v1. 

...just not successfully.

@Matts4313 do you have video? Article doesn’t clarify if they’re runs/passes. 1v1 blocking on an outside handoff to the opposite side is sort of irrelevant, so, context?
