Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, speaking to the media after the Thursday Night Football game that saw Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett swing a helmet at his head, called the former #1 overall pick a “coward” for his “bush league” actions.

During the closing moments of the Browns 21-7 win over the Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium, Rudolph and Garrett got into a scuffle that ended with the Browns lineman ripping Rudolph’s helmet off his head and swinging it at him.

While Garrett connected with Rudolph, the second-year Steelers quarterback was thankfully unharmed and did not mince words in his postgame interview.

Following the attack, many are calling for Garrett to be suspended for the rest of the season, if not permanently, as some consider to be his attack one of the most vicious to ever occur on an NFL field.

On Thursday night, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett committed the closest thing we’ve seen to an on-field crime in the modern era of pro football. Only one response will suffice. The NFL must issue the longest suspension for a single on-field act in its history, ending Garrett’s 2019 season with six games remaining on the Browns’ schedule and making clear to the world that what happened at FirstEnergy Stadium is one of the worst moments on the field in its history.

The Cleveland Browns ultimately defeated the Steelers by a score of 21-7 to improve their record to 4-6. As for the Pittsburgh Steelers, their record dropped to 5-5. Both teams are currently chasing the AFC North division-leading Baltimore Ravens, though, who show no signs of slowing down at 7-2.

As for Myles Garrett, hopefully, he gets the Vontaze Burfict treatment and we don’t have to see his pathetic self for another 12 months. Vile pig, he is.
