Myles Garrett, Cleveland Brown's DE

Around 60,000 signatures for the NFL to reinstate Garrett. Probably all live in Cleveland. The guy is a stick of dynamite waiting to explode, should be charged with assault by the local DA. In the many decades of watching football I have never seen anything like that.

What he did was inexcusable. Depending on which replay you watch, you only see Garrett with Rudolph's helmet. What some replays don't show is Rudolph trying, unsuccessfully, to rip Garrett's helmet off. Just read a report that the NFL will fine Rudolph for his role in the incident.

Did Mason Rudolph do something to start this brawl? I’m not defending Garrett, he deserves a 16 game suspension instead.

As a Steelers fan, please give Rudolph a 3 game suspension.

All kidding aside, he really did get things started. The Cleveland player did go over the line with his response and his suspension should be upheld.

Deacon Jones, Ray Nitchske, Jack Lambert, and others like them are laughing. They would have trouble playing now. Do you remember Deacon's head slaps when rushing the quarterback? Of coarse I agree with the suspension but it seems like you can't look at the quarterbacks cross eyed anymore or you will get a roughing the passer penalty.

Actually, most of them aren't laughing, because they have nerve damage, Alzheimers, and other disorders from getting banged around so much. The rules are there because medical science has found out over the years how hard football really is on the human body and brain. The rules are especially strict to protect players (passers, kickers, and kick receivers) whose job at the at the moment of contact prevents them from preparing themselves to be hit.

The son of a good friend of mine has a life-altering injury from a football hit in high school ball. I, for one, am all in favor of rules (and their strict enforcement) that protect players.

Rudolph objected to the way Garrett tackled him, grabbed Garrett by the facemask, and attempted to take Garrett's helmet off but didn't succeed. Garrett was successful in removing Rudolph's helmet, and well, you know the rest.

League has to clean up refs!

Anybody happen to notice the amount of penalties in this game...quite a few!! This was an intense division game and instead of getting a grip on both teams...MNF Lights everybody...the refs let this debacle get way out of hand...in Baseball and Hockey they get a grip on game flow and give bench warnings which works most of the time...but not in the NFL!
