Cleveland Browns News: Steelers take some blame for brawl, even though they don’t
The Pittsburgh Steelers started the brawl with the Cleveland Browns that ended with Myles Garrett being suspended. And now they take some blame for that — but not much, of course
Ever since the incident happened, Myles Garrett has taken ownership. The Cleveland Browns defensive end apologized for his part in the brawl with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and vows to be better in the future.
As for the Steelers, they take the blame as well for their part. Unless they don’t.
Head coach Mike Tomlin, who has been abnormally quiet about it all which isn’t surprising because his undisciplined band of men is always getting into fights, spoke on the whole thing. And he says they take responsibility for “their part” in it.
The only issue with that comment is he’s wrong. The Steelers have been anything but remorseful about it. This can be seen as we witnessed Tomlin ignoring the brawl at first as well as with Mason Rudolph playing the “coward” and “bus-league” card while also admitting he was still going after Garrett once the fight was broken up.

But don’t worry. Everyone will believe Tomlin even though his team is one of the dirtiest in the NFL. Why? Because the narrative says he’s a tough coach. But the reality is, the Steelers have no problem starting fights and even less problem yelling foul when they get pushed back.

Steelers coach accepts partial responsibility for fight during Browns game — John Telich, Fox 8
"“All of us involved in the game, particularly at this level, want to safeguard and protect the game, it’s integrity. And in that instance, it was compromised obviously, with an unfortunate incident,” Tomlin said. “None of us want those things to transpire. We were a part of it. We accept responsibility for our actions within it.”"
The Steelers actions show something different. Mason Rudolph is too busy playing the victim to admit any fault. The next meeting should be fun.
Odell Beckham Jr. tells Mike Tomlin ‘you disrespected me’ with yawn — but then he put the story to bed — Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com
"“Beckham patted his mouth several times in a mock yawn towards Mike Tomlin after his 42-yard catch on the opening drive that set up Baker Mayfield’s 1-yard sneak for a touchdown that made it 7-0.The gesture was in response to Tomlin fake yawning in July during an interview with ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler when asked about having to cover Beckham twice a year in the AFC North.”"
Here’s another example of Tomlin’s undisciplined crew. They learn from him how to disrespect opponents. OBJ got the last laugh here though, and don’t be shocked if he plays even better in Week 13 when they meet again.
