DE Myles Garrett (11.15.20)

DE Myles Garrett:

On the QB draw by Texans QB Deshaun Watson on fourth down:   

“I saw them go into empty, and they were on the 3-yard line. I knew they were not going to drop back and pass with such a dynamic quarterback like Deshaun. I just took two steps and kind of tried to bait him up the field, and then I knew he was going to try and run behind me and I just took it.”


On RB Nick Chubb’s performance today:   

“You have seen this time after time with this man. He is one of the best in the league, and he shows that every time he is out there. Love getting to watch him, especially on my team. It is just fun watching him. That is all I can really say.”


On the Browns RB tandem with Chubb and RB Kareem Hunt:   

“Hard-nosed. These guys are getting after it. When I watch Nick, it is like watching poetry in motion. I would not say it is like (Pro Football Hall of Fame RB) Gale Sayers because he does not really have that fluidity, but just how smooth runs and how he gets by peoples, it kind of remind me of that. Kareem, he is just a force. He will run through you. He will go by you. He will stiff arm you. He runs really aggressive, and he will go anywhere he needs to get to that end zone or that first down. To have both of them, it is just wonderful to be a part of this.”


On Chubb going out of bounds at the 1-yard line on his 59-yard run:   

“He is selfless. He has always been selfless. I have not known him being any other way. I am comparing him to a lot of great backs, but it reminds me of (Pro Football Hall of Fame RB) Barry (Sanders) and how Barry always throws the ball to the referee when he scored a touchdown. He has that cool, calm demeanor every time he is on the field. He does not get too high or too low. He is always just keyed in, focused. Just loves to play the game. I expect nothing less. When I saw him, I was like, ‘I would not mind if you scored,’ but I know what he is going to do because he has always been that guy.”


On winning a bad weather game after the loss to the Raiders:

“We knew we could do it. We knew we dropped one last week, and we had some injuries, including myself. We just knew we needed to get back to our game and what we were doing. We needed (RB) Nick (Chubb) back and a lot of key guys back on the field, and we got the ball rolling.”


On why was the Browns defense was so much better on third and fourth down today:

“It is a testament to great play calling, and guys were rushing the passer well. It was windy day so they were not really trying to go deep or really trying to set up their passing game. When they were, we were on it. We had a lot of good blitzes. We were able to get free. We were able to get some pressure on him that caused him to throw some unapparent balls.”


On how he felt physically today:

“I felt great. Nobody is going to be 100 percent, but I was good enough to get out there confidentially and put my best foot forward.”


On if he ever got the feeling that the Texans did not want to be out there with the bad weather:

“I am going out there just to play the game. If you want to be there or not, that is not my issue. I am not trying to read into you. I am trying to take your heart no matter if it is sunny and 70 degrees or it is 30 and 40 miles per hour wind gust. Whatever it is, I am out there just to go win and be destructive.


“If you see (DT) Sheldon (Richardson) today, tell him that is a whole sack and not a half (laughter).”
