Chris Dailey's take on the Myles Garrett and Mason Rudolph Brawl…
It’s Thursday Night Football as the Browns are beating the Steelers 21-7 and it’s the final play of the game. Myles Garett delivers a late blow to Mason Rudolph, a definite roughing the passer call. Then, the two fell to the ground and the brawl began. Garett started wrestling Rudolph, proceeding to take his helmet off and smack him in the head with it.
Garett has been suspended indefinitely for the rest of the season, and both teams have been fined $250,000 each.
Garett claimed it was “out of character” and his emotions got the best of him. I have been asked many times my take on this, and here it is. Myles Garett needs to be fined big time, you are not allowed to do this on any football field. It could’ve resulted in something much more serious to Mason Rudolph. It probably will in 40 years when Rudolph is an old man and had CTE thanks to the hit.
I also believe that this strengthens the case to fire Freddie Kitchens. Despite a win, Kitchens has zero control of his team. According to multiple reports from sideline reporters, Browns players were ‘rooting for Garett’ on the bench. This is unacceptable, I can only imagine if Bill Belichick saw that happen.
Kitchens hasn’t given the Browns the leadership they thought they were going to have. The Browns have the players, but that doesn’t matter anymore. They have too many personalities in one locker room, and this has resulted in a downfall for the Browns, as if they haven’t had many downfalls in the past years.
All together, this is up to the management of the Browns to solve. For years they have been the laughing stock of the NFL. Something has to change, and it has to be in the people upstairs. The Browns are not very good. That’s the truth. They haven’t been good for years, except for the second half of last season. Every single person in the Browns organization has lost it, and the team may be one of the messiest in NFL history.
