Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph ripped Browns defensive end Myles Garrett for attacking him at the end of Thursday night’s game.

“I thought that was pretty cowardly, pretty bush league,” Rudolph said of Garrett.

Although Garrett hit Rudolph’s head with Rudolph’s own helmet, Rudolph said he wasn’t hurt and felt good after the game.

“I’m fine. I’m good. Good to go,” Rudolph said.

Asked to describe what happened, Rudolph declined to go into it and said the film speaks for itself.

  1. Of course he doesn’t want to get into it. He started it, made a huge guy extremely mad then continued the fight and got clocked with his own helmet. Yeah Mason, we saw the film.

  2. If you watched the game, Mason Rudolph started it… then calls it bush league? Lol, I think he’s just upset miles picked him up by his head.

  3. Dont approve of Myles actions.

    But running after someone and then crying foul when they hit you is cowardly.

  4. As a Steeler fan I would have been much happier if Rudolph had simply “no comment” regarding the incident. Garrett’s actions spoke for themselves. Rudolph seemed more interested in opining on Garrett than talking about his own dreadful play and the offenses lack of execution.

  5. Dude should be locked up, and banned from ever stepping on a field again. Don’t care how good he is. See…….Antonio brown.

  6. Roll that beautiful footage…especially when Rudolph was on the ground trying to wrench Garrett’s helmet off after his glorious coach and porous O-line let him get sacked on a meaningless play with 12 seconds left. Hero went at him while his linemen had him hemmed up and still got brained.

  7. Garrett was furious for some reason after making a clean hit on Rudolph. Not sure what was said to make him get that angry.

  8. It was 3 on 1 tho, and mason kept goin at him, i dont think it was cowardly at all, stupid? Yes very, but not cowardly. Maybe that knocked the cobwebs loose and Mason will make a throw to his team more often than the other now.

  9. Rudolph started it by trying to remove Garret’s helmet, but failed.
    So Garret removes Rudolph’s helmet and whacks him over the head with it.

    Suspend them both.

  10. So… what do we call mason rudolph
    trying to rip off Myles Garrett’s helmet?!?

    Good sportsmanship?!?

  11. I find it ironic that Rudolph calls Garrett a bully, cowardly, etc. when he instigated the whole thing, not once but twice. What Garrett did was inexcusable but Rudolph tried to rip Garrett’s helmet off so Garrett retaliated by ripping off Rudolph’s helmet. It probably would have stopped there as Pouncey and another Steelers’ lineman separated the two. Then Rudolph decided he wasn’t done yet and charged Garrett like an idiot. Rudolph deserves to be suspended at least one game, Pouncey deserves multiple game suspension for repeatedly punching and kicking Garrett in the head and Garrett deserves to be suspended for the rest of the year. Rudolph, you’re in no means innocent in all this.

  12. Stupid and ridiculous to swing the helmet like that.
    We’re not talking about Rudolph going for Garrett’s helmet first though? ‘Cause you’re right Rudolph, the film does do some talking, and you’re not 100% innocent either…..

    Not a fan of either team BTW.

  13. He’s right. I don’t know what was going on while they were on the ground but Garrett’s actions went way over the line. Garrett didn’t seem to think it was a big deal either–that says quite a lot about his level of self-awareness.

    If any of us had done that at our place of employment we’d be immediately fired and arrested for assault and battery.

  14. As much as I enjoy razzing the Steelers, there is no place in football for this kind of business.
    Suspension, fines, and arrest.
    The league needs to come down hard, so it’s completely understood that this won’t be tolerated.

  15. Myles might have let his emotions get the best of him…but it’s great to see a Browns player playing with passion. It’s the first time this year they’ve shown a heartbeat. James Harrison has headhunted the Browns QBs for years…he has no room to talk. Harrison saying anything is the pot factory calling the kettle black. He’s one of the dirtiest players in NFL history. The tape speaks for itself.

  16. Yes, the “film” speaks for itself. Garrett brought you down on top of him — didn’t fall on you or pin you down. You reached into his helmet (an attempted eye gouge perhaps?) and tried to rip the helmet off. You kicked him in his groin with your left leg then with your right foot (Tom Brady move) and you continued to go after him after your teammates were already holding him back. Get rid of that fake halo. You’re no saint, Rudolph.

    ==========================

    Sweet jesus NFL fans will find any way imaginable to let their fandom blind them.

    “Great to see a Browns player playing with passion” is what you call that?

  18. I haven’t seen anyone mention this, (and replay shows it clearly) where Rudolph’s heel was in Garret’s groin. Could be another reason why Garret lost his cool.

  19. Not a fan of either team. Garrett crossed the line. Rudolph is no saint though. Rudolph calls Garrett’s actions “cowardly and bush league.” He shares in that analysis. Garrett should not have reacted as he did. But the replay is clear. Garrett made a legal football tackle. No flag thrown. Yes, it was rough – but it is clearly seen that Rudolph manhandles Garrett’s helmet just after the tackle. It’s TACKLE FOOTBALL little man! As a quarterback, that will happen when you get hit/sacked. Them’s the rules. Rudolph instigated it with his reaction to the tackle, he picked a fight with a bigger man – not a smart reaction. That does not excuse Garrett for hitting Rudolph with the helmet. He will be (and should be) rightfully suspended. But Rudolph – in addition to his horrid play – has shown why he is not worth consideration as an NFL quarterback.

  20. ESPN report includes verbiage that says Rudolph kicked at Myles’ groin when on ground. That changes a lot
