When I was in grade school, I played for a catholic school in the burbs and most of our opponents were catholic schools from the city. Some were really good, some were ok, some were bad. We were the best team in the conference. One game we played the worst team in the league. Our offense ran 4 plays and scored 4 touchdowns and we were told to take our pads off and get into street clothes. (which we were told to bring in anticipation) as the coach wanted to avoid any and all temptation of putting us in and make it look like we were running up the score.
Do that this week, Ryan.
Well, you won't be seeing much of Myles for a bit but sure.
Enjoy your trash defensive end and defensive tackle who are looking for cheap shots to take.
Trash franchise for trash fans.
False. It all goes to 0 when you remove the helmet and swing it with malicious intent. Mason will get fined for his minor role. Once you aim to maim you lose any and all standing.
Ask yourself two questions.
1) What was Mason's intent when he reached at Myles?
2) What was Miles intent when he swung the helmet?
I've tried to avoid playing hypotheticals, but this one I think matters. Lost in this is the fact that Miles connected with the open side of the helmet. If it was the crown, he puts Rudolph in a coma. But you know, he would have deserved it. Also, I don't see much in the way of a groin kick. I see a leg between legs and a leg go up but it also looks like a scuffle (one Myles started). I'll concede on one point, Rudolph grabbed the helmet of the guy laying on top of him. I'll concede that this is 1% Mason's fault.
Just come out and say it, you are fine with it because its the Steelers.
Does Jenna ever discuss how much of a trash human Pam Beasley is?
Play stupid games get stupid prizes. Everyone got what they deserved, Mason deserved 0.
This one. Man that would have been terrifying.
Man, I feel for Austin Mack. Just a hard-luck career for a guy who seemed to have a sky-high ceiling.
Rudolph is scrambling because a guy is sitting on top of him and won't get off of him.
1:29 Garret is bringing Mason down.
1:31 Garret completes the takedown and is on top of him, Mason is flailing.
1:32 Garret is getting off of him
1:33 You see Mason's head jerk because MG has his helmet in his hands.Mason is then lifted by his helmet that MG has.
1:35 MG has it almost off.
1:36 he has it.
Freeze at 1:39. This argument is over.
Anyone supporting ANY theory other than MG being 100% wrong is a fool.
Yes, because Rudolph wasn't. Garrett was sitting on top of him and was not getting up. It started when multiple offender Myles Garrett took liberties on an unnecessary hit after the ball was out, then put him on the ground for no reason. Then the scuffle ensures. If multiple offender Garrett doesn't do that NONE of this happens.
Also true statements.
Dude, just stop. You're so biased its comical at this point. Nothing NOTHING Rudolph did rose to the level of yanking a man up by his helmet, ripping it off and swinging it at him.
Garrett already has priors this season.
(So does Myles)
We've hit the defending Kareem Hunt portion of the argument.
You've lost any remaining credibility in this argument.
Albert Haynesworth got five for stomping on a guy.
Oh shoot, the woman Hunt beat wasn't his wife. I'll append, sorry.
Thanks for the crucial, important correction.
Its not clear at all. Its clear Rudolph didn't like Garrett sitting on top of him after an already at best questionable hit.
Forgive me OSU244, I was responding to MichiBuck's post about 'why would you go after this guy' tried to consolidate responses.
I find it amusing that Myles Garret needed to rip his helmet off because he was laying on top of a guy and threw a temper tantrum.
But hey, defend those Brownies. You sound like a Bengals fan anytime Burfict got nicked.
It's not an overreaction because no Steelers player has ripped off an opposing player's helmet and swung it at him. You are failing to see the forest through the trees.
Did he escalate it before or after Garrett lifted him up by his head and ripped his helmet off. Asking for a friend.
1) What does it say about a guy that big that needs to swing a weapon at someone?
2) Garrett started the entire thing. Late hit on the QB after the ball was out. Then awkwardly brings him down. Mason tries to get him off of him. Linemen come and intervene. Garret GRABS HIS HELMET AND TEARS IT OFF. Rudolph goes after him, Garret swings. Total punk move. Garrett is already a multiple offender this season. Garrett both started it and escalated it. Screw him.
