Seattle gets kinda screwed, as their game against the Eagles in two weeks just got moved from SNF to a 1PM Eastern game.  I think they're coming off a bye, so maybe they come into town early, but I imagine that pacific-time-zone teams playing at 1PM eastern time are at a measurable disadvantage.

 

Usually that's true. But, Seattle is unbeaten on the road this season and that has included early starts at Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Atlanta with early starts at Philly and Carolina still to come.

Does anyone need to read an article about what referees went to the emergency room for putting bizarre things in a certain place where such things don't belong? Referees are very much a sports issue. Doesn't require any sort of political bent to see that.

Regarding Adam Gase, were the Jets even supposed to be competitive this year? The Le'veon Bell signing seemed like a smoke screen.

Pure garbage there from Garrett.

 

Sure was. He's gone for a while after that nonsense. Only the Browns can take a nice victory and turn it into an embarrassment like this. That was a disgrace.

Par for the course, my friend. The Browns dominate the game and still come off looking like a :censored:-show.

The Browns final 6 games are winnable too, well except maybe Baltimore. 

 

That Steelers crowd will be spewing venom in the rematch in a couple weeks.

Is there any precedent of how the NFL will handle this? Honestly I wouldn’t be upset with a lifetime ban, but is there an incident that the NFL might compare this to to base their penalty?

Honestly, I'm not sure. The next closet thing was Haynesworth stomping on a player and that got him a 5 game suspension. This? Well, you're looking at 6 games minimum. Make an example out of him.

Cut him, ban him, do something harsh to Myles Garrett. Even Vontaze Burfict never bashed a bareheaded player in the head with said discarded helmet.

I'd expect he's done for the year, maybe even playoffs if they made them. Pouncey could be looking at a suspension as well for throwing punches and kicking Garrett in the head. I could see Rudolph getting a fine for trying to rip off Garrett's helmet as well but won't be surprised if it gets waived. The other Brown ejected will probably get a game suspension at a minimum.

A lifetime ban? That is a bit of an overreaction. Suh and Haynesworth immediately come to mind as players who did really stupid :censored:. There have been plenty of others over the years. I'm not defending Myles Garrett, but Rudolph went after him first and was taking swings when Garrett went full moron and swung the helmet. No idea if that will play a role. It shouldn't because cracking a player in the head with his own helmet kinda trumps everything else, but you never know. Honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if Garrett is suspended for the rest of the season. In any case, it's an embarrassment to the Browns and to Browns fans. Garrett deserves what's coming to him. He ruined an otherwise great night for the Browns.

Myles Garrett will get the rest of the season off and likely a visit to an Ohio courtroom.  That was an all-time stupid moment for the sport.

Well, when you're playing for an all-time stupid team, it seems to reason that an all-time stupid moment will eventually happen. B)

Haynesworth stomping on a dude’s face was worse. Some of Suh’s stuff was worse. Burfict (sp) is worse. This is bad but let’s not act like it’s a stain on an otherwise perfect game. This isn’t Marty McSorley level of assault.

I agree. Heat of the moment and that dude was reaching for similar and saying maybe worse. None of these guys are angels. I'm glad Mason Rudolph's brains weren't splattered on TV, and if guys can throw their girlfriends down stairs and still play pro ball, Myles Garrett ought to be able to play again. I mean, it's not like he's protesting police brutality or anything.

What Garret did is definitely up there as one of the dirtiest moments in the NFL. 

It's one thing to punch or kick a guy (which is already egregious), but to rip off a players helmet & hit him with it? That's definitely the dirtiest thing I've seen. 

 

Outside of Football, that's assault & battery. Which would land you in jail.  

Unfortunately he'll probably just get a huge fine and may 3-4 game suspension at most.

No, but it still ain't great.  That said, I agree that Suh, Haynesworth and Burfict are worse if for no other reason than they purposely do that type thing. At least Garrett isn't known for being a dirty player. That does not in any way excuse his behavior tonight, but it's not like he has a history of pulling boneheaded stunts. So there's that, I guess.

Who ever the dude is talking to Scott Van Pelt is talking like he just saw 9-11. Jesus shut up. A dude got pissed, and will be suspended for it. Just stop it with the overreaction.  there are far worse guys o that field.
