Myles Garrett apparently is not used to having a lot of blockers in his way.
It’s been almost one week since the Houston Texans lost to the Cleveland Browns. It took Myles Garrett a week to vent and complain about how much Texans left tackle Laremy Tunsil and the Texans offense “chipped” him during the game.
A “chip” block can be seen as two players (A and B in this example) blocking a defender. Blocker A is the main blocker, but blocker B usually gets to fire a big shot at the defender- as he is already engaged with blocker A.
Garrett did not record a sack in last Sunday’s game thanks to Tunsil’s efforts. That strategy (if it wasn’t already) is now a blueprint for the rest of Cleveland Browns opponents for the rest of the year. If you chip Garrett, he’s going to have a bad time.
Myles Garrett, thanks for the compliment, but he just needs to move on
While Garrett certainly has had to have faced tougher competition, this is just pretty weird to come out and say. He could be happy his team won the game- remember, this was a contest that was tied at halftime and was still a game until Tyrod Taylor got hurt.
The rest of the Houston Texans offensive line still needs work, as Davis Mills hasn’t had any time to throw for most of the snaps he’s been given the green light to throw. Should the Texans look to add a lineman with their first-round pick next year to address this issue?
Tunsil and the Texans will take the compliment for sure, but it’s time to move on, Mr. Garrett. The Browns could be 0-2 and things would look a lot worse for a team that nearly went to the AFC championship game last season.
