Every group requires multiple leaders and multiple types of leaders. We need vocals and a charismatic sort that can bring people together. But you also need someone to set the tone and provide an example for the rest to continue. TJ Watt isn’t always the most outspoken, but people around him know he’s been a model for the Pittsburgh Steelers since he arrived as a rookie in 2017.
Minkah Fitzpatrick was nominated as the team’s MVP for the second year in a row, so he was asked about Watt and his personality within the team, and whether he was a big speaker in that regard. He admitted that he wasn’t, and said, “He’s definitely the lead by an exemplary man,” but he does exactly that.
“”I think his character is more led by the example.He is a man who does everything the right way“Fitzpatrick said. “He was one of the first people in the building and one of the last people to leave. He is always watching movies and always preparing his body and mind.”
It was especially important in his own position group where Bad Dupley went down this year, and others had to step up and fill the void. He has a career of his own and is likely to win the Defensive Player of the Year Award, while also helping to train new linebacker Alex Highsmith.
According to Fitzpatrick, Round 3 is one of the most followers of Watt’s example, but he is not the only one. “Because he’s successful, the man follows, and as I said, he’s doing it the right way. Someone like Highsmith is following in his footsteps. Highsmith , After and before practice, I see literally doing exactly what TJ does, just as he prepares. “
Highsmith had to take over his first role since Dupley tore the ACL. He hasn’t notched a sack in the four games at the start, but has accumulated 19 tackles and some quarterback hits. He had multiple significant pressures on their Sunday victory over Indianapolis Colts.
Highsmith is presumed to be the successor to his first role, as Dupley is likely to join the free agent, and he is actively demonstrating his abilities. He still has room for growth, but seeing how Watt does it on the other side provides a blueprint for success.
