A 6-10 game suspension (rest of the season + potential playoff games) is more than warranted for Garrett. This reminds of the Vontaze Burfict suspension. You have a guy in Myles Garrett who is one of the most penalized players in the league for late/unwarranted hits (I think only behind Burfict for the season?). So you know this isn't just some isolated incident. Garret has been pushing the boundaries of what he can get away with for a long time now.
And he thinks he has cover ultimately, because he was the #1 overall draft pick in 2017. So he is too good and too important to the Browns to just simply be cut. But it takes massive delusions of grandeur to think you could ever possibly justify hitting an NFL QB in the head with his own helmet, on national TV! That's just amazing.
I feel sorry for Pouncey. He shouldn't have kicked him, I guess, when Garrett was on the ground and it was clearly over. But I don't fault him whatsoever for getting caught up in the moment and losing his cool. I probably would have to. But a 3-game suspension for Pouncey when Garrett may only have to serve a 6-game one seems very unfair. I would rather see a 1-game suspension and a big fine.
It's good the NFL acting swiftly on this. Everyone is right in saying this is probably the worst on the field fight the league has ever seen. In a perfect world, like Mike Florio says here, Garrett would be immediately cut by the Browns. I hope Rudolph is OK. He seems like he is, but that hit could easily gone the other way and knocked him out cold, or even worse, killed him.
