What's a G.O.A.T.?

Headline found online: If J.J. Watt Stays Healthy, He Could Go Down as the G.O.A.T.

It took me awhile, but I finally realized that G.O.A.T. stands for Greatest Of All Time. Which means that the Texans' Watt is pretty good.

Still, I hate nonsensical acronyms like this in a headline, and, besides, a goat is usually a bad thing in sports vernacular. They could have simply said this:

A Healthy J.J. Watt Could Go Down As Greatest Of All Time
