Some Saints react to things getting out of hand on TNF

Myles Garrett broke the rules of “Fight Club” on Thursday Night football using his opponent’s helmet as a weapon. The Browns defensive tackle was able to smack Mason Rudolph in the mug and amazingly the Steelers QB escaped serious harm.  

Saints All-Pro Cameron Jordan understands Garrett’s anger to an extent since Rudolph was the antagonizer.  

Former Saints offensive lineman Kyle Turley knows about ripping helmets off. He tossed Damien Robinson's Jets helmet down the field back in 2001. Turley tweeted that players on Pittsburgh arent angels in this either.    

The temperament on social media quickly escalated to how many games Garrett should be banned from playing. It didn’t take long for the angry mob to hand out a lifetime suspension for the 23 year old. Saints running back Alvin Kamara seemed to tweet a response to the extreme take of some NFL fans and analysts.     

The league has put out a statement saying that the Steelers and Browns organizations have each been fined $250,000.  Also, that the Browns Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi and the Steelers Maurkice Pouncey have been suspended without pay.

Garrett is out indefinitely, with the minimum being for the remainder of the regular season and postseason. Pouncey got a three game ban, while Ogunjobi will have to sit out one.
