Myles Garrett: I made a mistake; I lost my cool

Getty Images

Myles Garrett did not seem immediately to grasp exactly how bad his actions were Thursday night.

No one was talking about the Browns’ victory but about the team’s star defensive player swinging Mason Rudolph‘s helmet at the quarterback’s head.

“A win’s a win. I don’t think it’s overshadowed by what happened in eight seconds,” Garrett told reporters in the locker room.

Garrett refused to talk about what set him off. Replays showed that Rudolph tried to rip off Garrett’s helmet before trying to kick him.

Nothing Rudolph did or said, though, would have excused Garrett’s reaction.

Officials ejected Garrett; the NFL will suspend him, perhaps for the rest of the season; and his reputation is forever gone.

Garrett will wear a scarlet letter as a dirty player the rest of his career.

The former No. 1 overall pick didn’t seem to understand the severity of his actions.

“I made a mistake; I lost my cool,” Garrett said. “It’s going to come back to hurt our team. The guys who jumped in the scrum, I appreciate my teammates having my back, but it shouldn’t have gotten that far. That’s on me.”

Garrett said “no clue” when asked how long he expected to be suspended. Here’s a guess: Longer than he expects.

  1. Freddie Kitchens runs and undisciplined team! Garrett is just the icing on the cake for the champions of the 2019 NFL preseason Super Bowl. Pathetic!

  2. Myles Garrett should be banned the rest of this year and next. Sorry Richard Sherman, there will be a signing of the NFL/NFLPA agreement now. Blanket party at Myles Garretts house….now you’ll have to play a garbage 17th game, too. Wow, losers on display.

  3. His mentality is what is wrong with our society. Why cities like Cleveland Pittsburgh and Baltimore can have the crime rates that they have. Accepted criminal behavior taken without a care by the perpetrator

  4. Pathetic, couldn’t even apologize to Rudolph. Dude may have just ruined his career by this. This is the most browns things ever. Everyone starts to think they turn it out then their best player is probably gone for the year. Absolute idiot!

  5. well you guys arnt on the Raiders, so you have a chance of not getting suspended for the rest of the season.

  6. Before Rudolph tried to take of his helmet, he excessively continued the play of tackling Rudolph after he threw the ball. That is what set Rudolph off. Then…well…chaos.

  7. Every single time I have seen the Browns play this guy commits at least one blatantly dirty hit, so this is not all that much of a surprise to me. If Rudolph was foolish enough to shove him first, fine, Garrett is twice his size, if he pushed him back and it would be over, this was next level; ripping someone’s helmet off and then hitting him with it should result in a suspension for the rest of the season.

  8. vice versa if this was a steeler player who was the DE …the out rage would be about how the brown QB first tried to rip off the steelers DE helmet, and then how a browns o lineman came in and kicked the steelers de in the head…but since its the browns best player, steeler fans want banish the guy from the league for the rest of his career. I say it will be a 6 game, and then dropped to a 4 game

  9. The finale of the sack by Garrett was a bit rude. Rudolph was in the grasp,and while they both fell on the ground Garrett stamped Rudolph’s shoulder on the ground.
    Rudolph did not try to pull Garrett’s helmet off, he was trying to get rid of his body over him, by tossing the head first, but he acted in a frenetic way out of frustration.
    Garrett then became the one in the grasp, he completely lost it and the rest is history.

  10. Thank you Myles Garret. The Steelers have been a dirty team for decades. The garbage Rudolph pulled is just par for the course with them, glad to see you standing up, but you did go a tad bit too far. We’ll miss you while youre gone but as a witness to the history of this rivalry I say good job.

  11. Most if not all of us here commenting played sports growing up as youth in HS,collegiality,etc.

    Emotions are part of the game and mistakes are made but, 99.9% of us never would purposely try and change an opponents life or end another’s life. No matter what the circumstances or emotions are in a GAME.

    That’s exactly what Garrett basically tried to do. Thank God he missed Rudolph

  12. I’ve lost my cool and never done that. Suspended him ten games. Easy. Garrett may need professional anger management consoling before he seriously hurts somebody

  13. Remember when Steelers fans laughed for weeks over the countless replays of Antonio Brown kicking Browns punter Spencer Lanning in the face on a return a few years back?

  14. He’s an absolute disgrace for ruining one of his teams best moments of the season. Instead of celebrating a W, his team has to answer questions about his inexcusable actions. Three words can sum up this Browns team: lack of discipline.

  15. What is WRONG with that boy? All of a sudden, he’s now a violent, dirty player. There is NO excuse for what he did, and Myles can’t just brush trying to knock out a player with his helmet as just ‘losing my cool’. Is he juiced up or something? Serious question and he should be tested for the same.

  16. It’s crazy tonight really reminds me of all those times when James Harrison and Lawrence Timmons use to head hunt Browns receivers. It was awful, you didn’t just lose you lost players on horrible hits. All I have is empathy because that was the worse absolutely unacceptable.

  17. That was inexcusable what Myles Garret did. He should be suspended and not allowed near the facility.
    He could have really injured Rudolph, then what would have happened😢 he will be forever labeled a dirty player now.
    What an idiot.

  18. Goddell will use the punishment as an example. It is one of the lowest points in the NFL and it was by a team that had the game wrapped up when it happened.

  19. The entire game the Browns played dirty, all of it falls back on coaching!!! He just made Burfict look like a boy scout!!

  20. There is a lot of overreacting going on here. It’s a violent sport and there were no injuries. Stop demonizing.

  21. Um actually Garrett, it will overshadow the game because no one really cares that a bad team beat a bad team. We all care that you made the decision to beat a guy’s brains in with his own helmet.

  22. Lol nobody will say he is a dirty player, his helmet was being ripped off and he got kicked, he got mad and lost it, yes he will miss 5-10 games but a dirty player? Really? It was a fight not a football play.how clueless can you be?

  23. and Rudolph, every action has a consequence. Ruldolph initiates the conflict. Both players should face season long suspension

  24. Garrett is apparently unaware of what he did, the severity of his actions, or the consequences thereof. Someone needs to enlighten him. The league has no choice but to suspend him for the rest of the season and fine him heavily. Frankly, Garrett is going to be lucky if he doesn’t face criminal prosecution. You cannot attack someone with a weapon–in this case, a helmet–and expect to walk away without paying for it. It’s a shame, because the Browns had a nice win and Garrett is a good player. However, actions like the ones Garrett took are unacceptable and, potentially, criminal.

  25. I love the guy this morning on the first take show saying that Garrett should only get three games suspension because he was backing up when he swung the helmet. You, my friend, are on an island of opinion.

  26. Sorry but Rudolph tried to rip Garrett’s helmet off first. He tried to bully him. What happens to bullies when they pick the wrong dude. We saw last night. Rudolph in real life around your friends and school mates and in the neighborhood compared to regular people, yes you are the big bad man on campus. But in the NFL you are a little runt and you picked a fight with a grown man. Not going to feel sorry for Rudolph & his bullying. De Castro I think it was laying on top of Garrett. Definitely spit a lugie on Garrett’s face.

  27. As an AFC North fan who has suffered thru corrupt nfl officiating
    that has endlessly favored pittsburgh steelers and turned their backs
    on good sportsmanship…

    … I am buying a Myles Garrett jersey.

  28. Lost your cool…. dude, your winning 21 to 7, it’s the last play of the game, you should be king of smug, gloating and chuckling, not ripping off helmets and smacking people with it.

    Good job Rudolph saw it coming and ducked out of most of it and was only hit with the open end and not the crown of the helmet or this could of been a worse story that it already is.

    Assault with a blunt instrument?

  29. Garrett was provoked. Rudolph should have been ejected as well and should Also be suspended. As for Pouncey, that guy needs serious help. You don’t. Kick a guy in the head. Steelers have a long history of provoking violence and then running away from responsibility. They got beaten badly Last night and they they set out to disable the team in preparation for a rematch. They’re not fooling anyone.

  30. Lost his cool, held on to being a fool. With the actions from last nights game, Garrett just became the latest member of the dirty players list. Once on that list it becomes very difficult to be remembered for a career of greatness, instead you become remembered for the dirty plays, no matter how few you have in your career. That is what makes all dirty players fools.

  31. A MISTAKE would have been you driving him into the ground which costs you 15 yards

    Being a Jag off is where you take off his helmet and try to beat him with it.

    disgusting.

  32. Just saw this totally un called for .if that helmet had connected full force Garrett could be facing some serious legal problems. For him to snap like that as he says is not good either roid rage or aught up in the moment doesn’t matter. No excuse for that he should be suspended for at least 4 games, Pouncey as well should get a 2 game suspension,and even Rudolph a game .

  33. As a biased Cleveland fan after watching James Harrison intentionally target Josh Cribbs repeatedly I could care less and the Browns owe the Steelers a lot more than a pop with a helmet. They just need to space out the revenge as to be able to field a team for next week’s game.

    James Harrison and Vontaze Burfict’s careers were vaulted by illegal shots and their reputation alone affected their opponent’s play. The NFL network in their pregame montage to their love for Pittsburgh even included James Harrison and used his reputation to create a comedy vignette. The author’s belief that Myles’ career will be tarnished is highly unlikely.

    I severely doubt there’s a “scarlet letter” on Myles career whatever that means – did he cheat on his partner with Mason Rudolph? Prior to this ejection Myles reputation was of a soft spoken pacifist who was a lover of dinosaurs. I sure hope that reputation is gone because he’s supposed to be a relentless animal.

    Mason Rudolph went after Garrett’s head and hence he caught a smack for pursuing it. At least Garrett did it in the face of both Mason and DeCastro.Maurkice Pouncey should be tossed in jail for throwing punches and kicking at the head of a player restrained on the ground. There’s no place on this planet for that type of cowardice.

  34. mason was digging at garrets helmet and had no business doing that all. garrett just happened to get masons off. 2 linemen and mason himself began rushing at garrett and he went into survival mode.

  35. I’m shocked that people are actually defending Garrett’s actions. That says a lot about today’s society.

  36. not surprised at all. browns gm john dorsey loves having criminals on his team. browns were head hunting all night. pathetic gm. pathetic coach . pathetic team.

  37. Absolutely no excuse for what Miles did, but there are a dozen views that show Rudolph kicking him in the groin while Rudolph was still on the ground with his helmet on. Not saying Garrett should have done what he did and deserves a severe suspension for it, but getting kicked in that area by a player wearing metal spikes would probably cause quite a few players to retaliate in some form..

  38. I don’t care what team you root for Garrett was in the wrong. People talk trash all game so don’t lose your cool, rip a guys helmet off THEN hit him with it. WTF?

    Pouncey, deserves a suspension too. I get it, you are defending your guy, but you don’t kick a guy in the head.

    A very ugly game that ended even worse. Congrats Browns and Steelers.

    Yes,Rudolph was digging at Garrett’s helmet,but he didn’t rip it off and smack him over the exposed head with it.

  40. This was pretty unbelievable, and cannot be condoned. I’m sure the NFL is going to send a strong message. Likely a year suspension.

    However, since he already “went big,” Myles should have just said nothing except, “Are you not entertained?!!?” And walked away from the media.

    Lol nobody will say he is a dirty player, his helmet was being ripped off and he got kicked, he got mad and lost it, yes he will miss 5-10 games but a dirty player? Really? It was a fight not a football play.how clueless can you be?

    It was just a fight till Garret turned his helmet into a weapon. Everything else was just a fight. Unfortunately this will leave a asterisk by his name forever. No excuse for it. Was stupid. But you clowns are being more stupid defending him.

  42. “A win’s a win. I don’t think it’s overshadowed by what happened in eight seconds,”

    If he doesn’t think his actions overshadowed the game he may not want watch TV or go on the internet for a while.

  43. Lol people saying that Rudolph tried to rip Garrett’s helmet and bullied him, I guess they missed the part where Garrett tackled Rudolph to the ground when the game was essentially over. What was Garrett afraid of? A 14 point comeback with 8 seconds left?

  44. Lmao! Rudolph instigated it. Rudolph should not have been pulling at his helmet, but there’s a world of difference in what Rudolph did and what Garrett did, and I would be saying the same thing if the roles were reversed. Using that theory, nearly any illegal hands to the face call, and most facemask calls could warrant the offended party to rip the offenders helmet off a smash him in the head with it. Pouncey did kick at Garrett, but, from several angles shown last night, it didn’t appear he connected, as Browns players leg was in the way. But, yes, the intent was there. To whoever said DeCastro did something to Garrett while on top of him, wrong again, Garrett basically thanked DeCastro because he was trying to keep other players off of him.

  45. Not defending Garrett. He should be done for the year. Not giving Rudolph a pass though. When you try to yank a dude’s helmet off and kick him, you should get tosses from the game as well. DeCastro should be getting more praise. He neutralized Garret eithout throwing a single blow.

    He used a helmet to hit another player, a QB who was out this year for a severe concussion mind you, and you think he’s not going to be labeled a dirty player. A bunch of guys have “LOST THEIR COOL” in NFL games but none of them used the other players helmet as a weapon. XII listen to the NFL players, his peers, his teammates, all speak on this. They all to a MAN have said there’s no excuse for it. Stop being a homer and call a spade a spade. If I dunno, say Stephon Tuitt had the same thing happen to him that happened to Garrett, who BTW instigated it by unnecessarily throwing Mason to the ground, took off Baker’s helmet and hit him with it, I am sure Browns fans would be up in arms calling for an indefinite suspension. Lets call it what it was a bush league DANGEROUS PLAY.

  47. Prospective check up.

    Good thing he hit the QB over the head with his own helmet.
    Had Garrett taken a knee his career would be over.

    This is absolutely a poor excuse. People get in fights in the NFL, that DOES NOT condone assault with a deadly weapon.

  49. As more parents are holding there kids back from playing the game this idiot does something like this. Suspended for the rest of the year and a $200,000 dollar fine.

    Out for the year. Even the NFL can’t screw this one up.

    NFL….HOLD MY BEER

  51. Myles has always been a dirty player. He’s the guy that injured Trevor Siemian. I hope he never returns to Cleveland. He is giving our team a bad reputation.

  52. He should be arrested for assault. That’s what it would be if he did that outside of a football stadium. If I’m the QB, I’m hiring an attorney and taking him to the bank. Awful. Just awful.

  53. The Browns were up by two scores with seconds to go. There is zero chance the Steelers could have come back to win. So, why at that point is any defender so wound up that he could even be in a position to “lose his cool”?

    This is not to say losing his cool is anywhere close to an allowable reason to swing a helmet. Garrett obviously has some unaddressed anger issues, and should receive plenty of time to work on them during his suspension. But, at that point in the game, why is anger even within the realm of possibilities? He should have been glad they were winning and being ready to move on after the game, instead of trying to injure anyone.

    Freddie Kitchens runs and undisciplined team! Garrett is just the icing on the cake for the champions of the 2019 NFL preseason Super Bowl. Pathetic!

    ———

    Completely agree. I’m guessing that that was the icing on the pink-slip cake that Kitchens has had in the oven. On a related side note, Monkeyman will go right along with him and probably would be gone anyway. To have that collection of offensive talent and end up with a 21st ranked yardage O and a 26th ranked scoring O that can’t even match the yardage ranking, that’s also inexcusable.

  55. Supposedly, if one is a Browns fan, Garrett’s actions are completely acceptable and should be applauded! If one is a normal human, Garrett’s actions are borderline criminal and he should be suspended for a long time and feel lucky he’s not charged with battery!

  56. yes. he deserves suspension however for Garret to react in such an immediate rage I would surely like to know what prompt it. I’ve never in all my years of watching FB experience a helmet attack, I’m telling you what was done to cause it should be looked into….

    ———

    A good percentage of the football loving population of this country already are calling him a dirty player.

  58. What no one has mentioned are the hits to juJu and Johnson that result in two concussions and only one ejection. So when you start pointing at the Steeles over reaction to the assault on their QB you are forgetting the cumulative effect of dirty hits not being called. What Pouncey did should draw a fine and a suspension without a doubt but what Garrett did is beyond the pale and should be a warning from the NFL that you put your career in jeopardy with this conduct.

  59. Steelers fan here. Myles Garrett is a good dude, who did and incredibly stupid thing in a heated moment. He should and will be suspended, actions have consequences, however, let’s not pretend he’s a terrible human being, cause that’s just objectively not true. I think the big personalities on the Browns are too much for Kitchens. They either need to lose so of the big egos or hire a coach who can earn their respect and get them to play with more discipline and dignity. Way to taint a quality win. That DL absolutely man handled PFF’s #1 rated offensive line. The lack of any run game certainly helped, but still, it was impressive. The Steelers need to kick the tires on Kaepernick. A mobile QB could help revitalize the running game, which is non existent with Conner hurt.

  60. “I’m shocked that people are actually defending Garrett’s actions. That says a lot about today’s society.”
    ______________

    But most of those comments are pure comedy relief. You’d think Hines Ward was still playing to read some of those. Instead he’s been retired since 2011. By these people’s “logic” Derek Carr better watch out for retaliation from something Jack Tatum did back in the day.

  61. garrett shouldnt be allowed to play. go back and watch that tape. if that helmet twists a certain way, mason rudolph is dead. guy should be in jail, forget a football field.

  62. I don’t know…Garrett seemed pretty calm ,cool and collected during his post-game interview. That in itself is pretty telling to me. He hasn’t apologized to Mason Rudolph because he’s not sorry. He sacked the guy and wouldn’t get up off of him. What QB wouldn’t react to that? The Browns won the game. There were 8 seconds left. Where is the logic in what he did?

  63. Please look at the video before commenting. Garrett brings Rudolph to the ground ON TOP OF HIM instead of landing on his chest and pinning him down. Rudolph’s immediate response is to stick his hands in Garrett’s helmet and then try to pull it off. Rudolph doesn’t stop there. He kicks Garrett in the groin with his left leg and then with his right foot. So anyone wondering why Garrett went nuts has their reason. Of course, Garrett is contrite and apologetic. Rudolph, in the Steeler tradition, is an arrogant innocent who doesn’t know why he was attacked. Really? Don’t buy it Sheeple!

  64. The Greg Williams effect lives in that team. Remember when people questioned this guy’s edge coming out of college? Well, he’s obviously crazy. I could see him notoriously wearing this forever like Kermit Washington did in basketball for breaking Rudy Tomjonwich’s nose.

  65. Garrett’s actions aren’t excusable, but they are explainable. It easy enough to see how it all transpired. With that said the common denominator in most of these situations is the Pittsburgh Steelers. They have had repeated incidents with every team in the AFC North. Perhaps the NFL should start fining owners when their teams continue to generate bad press via over the line play.

  66. Not condoning Garrett’s actions – what he did was wrong and he deserves a suspension.

    But we need to start talking about Rudolph kicking Garrett and trying to pull his helmet off.

    Not as cover for what Garrett did, but as a separate wrong that deserves scrutiny and punishment as well. Kicking a player and trying to pull his helmet off would normally be ejection-level offenses. Just because Rudolph had something bad happen to him afterwards doesn’t let him off the hook for his own rotten behavior.

    Garrett sacking him was within the rules of play and not even worth a penalty. Rudolph’s reaction to a legal play was both outside the rules and started a fight as well.

    We can say that what Garrett did was wrong and still accept all of the above. Rudolph deserves punishment as well.

  67. If Kap has been blackballed for protesting police brutality, this should be a no-brainer for the NFL. There is no way this dude should play one more snap in the league EVER!!!! If that was Brady, Rodgers, or Mahomes… if would not even be a question. He has shown this season alone that crossing the lines is in him. How many personal fouls did he have before this occurred? The Browns need to do the right thing and cut him today. Don’t leave it to the NFL, to do what you should be doing, which is holding your players to a higher standard. If Vontez Burnett can’t play in this league. If Kap can’t play in this league. There is no way in HELL this dude should see another snap in the league, and the Cleveland police should be at his door this morning.

  68. fyi: for all you brain surgeons claiming rudolph started it – pulling at the back of someones helmet after they hit you late and lay on top of you doesn’t warrant getting hit in your head with a helmet

  69. He should be suspended from the league at a minimum of this year and next year. At a minimum. I would prefer to see him banned personally

  70. With 8 seconds left? WTF were you thinking?! You gonna get plenty of time to think about it now. I recommend 12 month suspension and $250k fine and no team contact or practice during the suspension.

  71. Honestly what happened last night just assured that Steelers and Browns won’t make playoffs. The browns had a whisper of a chance but that’s not happening without Garrett and the Steelers lost juju and Conner I don’t know if they can recover that’s not even mentioning the possibility that Pouncey and Rudolph might get suspended. Maybe Rudolph being suspended might actually help, he got beat well before the end of the game last night.

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

    Yeah. Not an excuse. At all.

    No one is claiming Rudolph is a saint but Garrett’s actions are inexcusable. I don’t care what was said, done etc. Nothing is equal to cracking a dude on his unprotected head with a helmet.

    Garrett deserves whatever is coming.

  74. He should be banned from football forever. If not, what message does that send to the league? The opposition can assault you and we don’t care? There should be conduct language in every contract. The helmet can be both for protection and a weapon. Any attack on another player during a game with a helmet should immediately be suspended for life and all pay forfeited.

  75. There are often exchanges in football with guys pushing each other off, but ripping off someone’s helmet and then using it as a weapon is way over the top. It’s nice that Garrett has admitted that what he did is wrong, but he needs to personally apologize to Rudolph.

    _____________________________________________________

    As you state yourself, he pinned Rudolph, but then he stayed on top of him.

  77. I didn’t care about either team enough to watch the game, so trying to reconstruct from articles and comments about a meaningless game that was essentially over. First, why was Garrett tackling Rudolph long after the whistle when his team was winning? This began the entire sequence of events, and IS a dirty football play intended to rub their nose in the loss and instigate anger, which it did. Rudolph’s flailing about when confronting a much larger man sounded like understandable anger and frustration. The subsequent helmet attack is so over the top, roid rage indeed seems likely. A Cleveland safety was ejected earlier for an illegal hit, and with these ejections and suspensions, it appears to be a program out of control. Fire the coaches, trade the outlaws, and start over with a calmer, controlled demeanor.

  78. Myles, a mistake is when you turn left instead of right in the car. Way to pull this in the NFL 100th year celebration. Say goodbye to any HOF consideration even if you’re MVP forever. Aggie Nation hangs its head this morning.

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

    Reality: Rudolph started it AND he didn’t deserve getting hit in the head with a helmet.

    That’s the simple truth that “brain surgeons” are having trouble accepting.

  80. Mason didn’t deserve to get hit with a helmet, but the Steelers Olineman were standing between Mason and Garrett when Mason rushed over to him BEFORE getting hit…..
    1. Why would he rush him if his head was unprotected
    2. Why would he rush at him period.

    His teammates had things separated and under control.
