Steelers fans already offering to pay Maurkice Pouncey’s fine

Maurkice Pouncey Myles Garrett

Maurkice Pouncey was among those ejected for his role in a fight at the end of Thursday night’s Pittsburgh Steelers-Cleveland Browns game, and Steelers fans already have his back.

Mason Rudolph was taken down by Myles Garrett on a third-and-long pass in the final minute, and the two began scrapping on the ground. Garrett ripped off Rudolph’s helmet and later used it as a weapon to bash the quarterback in the head. Pouncey, the Steelers’ center, saw right in front of him what Garrett did and went after the Browns defensive star immediately.

Pouncey ended up throwing some punches and kicks at Garrett after seeing the way he bashed Rudolph in the head.

Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi, and Pouncey were all ejected. Some are already expecting discipline for Pouncey for throwing punches and kicks, such as a suspension and/or fines.

Steelers fans have already stepped up with an offer to cover Pouncey’s fine. They recognize the way the center was defending his teammate and liked how he did so without hesitation.

A few current NFL players also defended Pouncey for his response.

Some may feel discipline for Pouncey is called for, but I have no problem at all with what he did. He saw his quarterback viciously harmed and went in to protect and defend his teammate right away. That’s the kind of teammate you want protecting your quarterback.
