"He's a great player, but now I have to look at him as just another one of my peers", Garrett said Wednesday.
Moments after Garrett was selected with the first pick in the NFL Draft, the Texas A&M product made comments about sacking Ben Roesthlisberger. "I wanted to get ready for Game 1, the games that count and go out there and try to win a Super Bowl". Would it have been too much to ask to see him play in the opener?
"I don't want to make medical decisions".
The Browns take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. "That's what we get paychecks for: We pay the cost". "That is just part of the entertainment value that is professional sports". I am sure he views it the same way.
"You could tell now that he's reaching out a little bit more to help the younger guys because he has younger players (around him)". I know they're always up for the challenge.
"That's fine", Garrett said.
In his one meeting against the Browns last season, Roethlisberger completed just 23-of-36 passes for 167 yards and no scores. "Anybody's offensive line, we're going to come at them as a collective group". I could tell that from the very beginning.
