Myles Garrett

12 posts in this topic

The guys on NFL Network are saying he should be suspended the rest of the season.  I think they are being too soft.  I think he should be suspended for a full season.  He could have killed Rudolph if the helmet had hit Rudolph just right on the swing.  I'm sure Pouncey will be suspended too for throwing punches and kicking, but I don't think he should be.  If somebody did what Garrett did to Brees, I would hope the other 52 players on the roster would be going after that guy.

Jordan has a right to his opinion, but I disagree with Cam.  Yes, Rudolph was grabbing his by the back of his helmet.  But this was after Garrett slammed him to the ground unnecessarily.  And yes, it looks like Rudolph spiked Garrett in the balls when Garrett was pulling him up by his facemask.

 

Suspensions have been announced.

 

Garrett suspended indefinitely for at least the rest of this season.

Ogunjobi got a one suspension for the cheap shot in the back on Rudolph after his helmet was ripped off.

Pouncey got 3 games.

 

I'm sorry, but indefinitely with rest of this year as a minimum is not good enough for what Garrett did.  He could have killed or severely injured Rudolph if the helmet hit him differently.  Payton got a full year for allegedly having bounties which I have yet to see any evidence of.  At this point, I guess I should be happy that one of our guys didn't do something stupid like this.

I have no issue with Ogunjobi getting one game for his cheap shot.

I guess I have no issue with Pouncey getting 3 games.  He did throw several punches and kicked Garrett several times, and doing that should not be condoned.  That said, if somebody did the same to Brees, I would hope every one of our guys would be fighting for him.

 

This was a dirty game, and not just because of this.  One Cleveland safety was ejected for a helmet to helmet hit.  They also got flagged for another one on Rudolph.  And they also gave JuJu Smith Shuster a concussion on another helmet to helmet hit, although I don't think that one was dirty.  I'm beginning to think Cleveland is a dirty team.

I agree with Cam. There was nothing wrong with the tackle. Garret turned and allowed Rudolph's body weight to fall on top of him. It's the way defenders tackle qb's in this era. If they land on top of the Qb,they'll get a personal foul and fine.

 

The above said,I agree with the suspensions,but Rudolph should have been suspended a game for grabbing the facemask and kicking the jewels.

That was definitely a “WTF moment” in the NFL.

Swinging a helmet at the bare head of a man is more than an NFL penalty or suspension, I think it is criminal assault.  I actually thing Garret could face charges.  What if he had fractured the man’s skull.  He could have possibly done serious damage or death.

Cam Jordan tweeted a very interesting perspective. He didn't condone what was done, but said that rudolph initially tried to rip of garrett's helmet

 

 

Sorry Cam, yes the ENTIRE blame is on Myles for what HE did. No excuse what so ever.

I'm with Cam on this one. Clearly Rudolph was the one, who started the helmet-ripp-off-action. When he couldn't do it, Garrett showed him how it's done. At this point, if Rudolph walks away, nobody talks about this scene again. But instead, he runs after Garrett, like he's out of his mind.

Ya, Garrett should have never done what he did. But he was clearly provoked in a huge way.

And the comments like: This is an assalut with a deadly weapon...Com'on folks, thats just utter BS.

Let a 280 lb man hit you with a windmill swing on your bare head with an NFL helmet and tell me what you think afterwards... 

The only thing that will keep charges  from happening is the fact the guy wasn’t hurt. 

Playing football doesn’t allow you to assault someone who is unprotected after the play is over.  So, disagree sure, BS

It has already happened in professional hockey.

I still have a different opinion, but I really dont want to elaborate any further. For what it's worth, if Rudolph was an European Football player, he would have had a dying scene worth an academy award, after he got hit :)
