Myles Garrett: I feel like I’ll play, I don’t have a choice but to be great

The Browns listed defensive end Myles Garrett as questionable to face the Packers on Saturday and head coach Kevin Stefanski called him 50-50 during a Thursday press conference, but Garrett doesn’t think he’ll be a flip of the coin come gameday.

Garrett told reporters that believes that he will “play regardless of how I feel” because he thinks the Browns need to win out if they are going to make the playoffs. Garrett also said that he feels the pressure to do more than just show up in uniform on Christmas.

“I don’t have a choice but to be great,” Garrett said, via Mary Kay Cabot of “I’ve gotta step it up. There’s no way around it. There’s no excuse that can be made. We have three games. We have one coming up very soon, and I’ve got put my very best foot forward and give us a chance to win.”

There are paths to the playoffs if the Browns do lose to the Packers, but there’s little argument with Garrett’s belief that the Browns need him to have their best chance of winning at any point.

  1. He wants to make sure that he gets more sacks then the rookie Parsons. Someone tell him that Parsons plays LB, DE, drops in cover covering WR’s and RB’s he is more then just a one trick pony.

  2. We are hoping Myles can play. The Packers have to beat the best each team can throw out there in the warm-up to the #1 NFC seeding and the play-offs. Weather forecast for Christmas Day in Green Bay: 33f and no precipitation.

  3. The NFL doesn’t realize it should treat the Browns with respect and Garrett is one of their star attractions.

  4. Not sure how everyone is taking this as Garrett having a huge ego based on his comments. Someone tell me where he’s wrong. He does need to be great and the Browns do need to win. Why all the hate?

  5. “I feel like I’ll play, I don’t have a choice but to be great“

    Mr. T would like to have a word with you, son.

  6. Go gotta blitz Rodgers a lot and hit him as hard as you legally can every time take a few 15yd penalties (much like what the Saints did against Favre wen he was a viking )get away with or play a regular type defense and he’ll eat the browns alive.
