Myles Garrett is an idiot. Of course, you all know this by know after seeing that wild TNF game on Thursday Night Football.
He has been suspended for the rest of the season, and it’s considered ‘indefinite’, which could mean forever.
Luckily, no criminal charges were filed, as he could easily have faced a prison sentence for his reckless behaviour.
TNF on Nov 14th, 2019 was not a very important game with two teams barely able to muster a playoff run this season, but it was an emotional one.
It’s no secret that these two teams HATE each other.
Whether it’s the divisional rivalry, a lingering resentment amongst blue collar cities, or the fact that every time that they play each other-they get amped up.
This was a down and out dirty game.
With JuJu taking a blatant helmet to helmet hit, and after the play trash-talking increasing, it was evident that something was going to happen.
Violence was on the menu.
What did the refs do?
In a season where refs have been on everyone like glue, you would have thought that they might have anticipated that this was going in a bad direction.
After the hit on JuJu’s head, did they take a moment to address the players and coaches and say ‘he guys, it’s time to tone this down.’
This could have been avoided, and the refs should heed some of the blame in allowing this to go this far.
Myles Garrett apologised profusely after the incident, but as we know-that is just not enough.
When you watch the replay and see the intensity in his eyes, there was only one colour.
A red eyed intensity to bash the crap out of Mason Rudolph and everyone who got in his way.
No matter what he says after the incident, he was the one who pushed harder and harder throughout the game.
Did Rudolph kick him in the balls and try to rip off his helmet?
Hard to tell.
But he’s the QB. He is afforded a degree of protection, and if the refs did see something, then they should have nipped that in the bud asap.
Myles is going to need to disappear this season.
Just shut up, don’t be like Burfect, and accept your punishment.
If they decide you should NEVER play in the NFL again.
Accept that too.
Time to grow up son.
