On Sunday, the Browns played the Jets, and Cleveland lost in heartbreaking fashion. And as you can expect, Browns fans let out a chorus of boos. So, Myles Garrett and John Johnson III commented on it.
Myles Garrett Says That He Wants to Be Respected by the Fans
Any NFL player would want their fans to be behind them. And when Browns fans were heartbroken yet again, they just let it all out. And Myles Garrett thinks that the booing was disappointing.
“I mean the more disappointing thing was the booing at the end. It was not the most optimal ending that we’d want. Of course we’d want to win. Of course we wanted to play out the game and it end 30-16 or 30-17 or whatever it was, we get a pick or a stripsack and end the game. But that’s not always how it goes.
He also went on to say that the players should be respected.
“These guys are still putting their a–es on the line and playing as hard as they can, and they should be respected as such. It’s two games and we have plenty more games to play, especially this next one coming up with the home crowd. We have a lot of time to correct what we’re doing, so we don’t want to see this crowd, this stadium give up on us this early.”
John Johnson III Says He Doesn’t Blame the Fans
With the Browns being up by 13 points with about a minute and a half to go, fans expect to win. And when Cleveland completely blows it, the fans start to get angry, and John Johnson says that he doesn’t blame them.
“I mean, we’ve got some of the most loyal fans. I don’t blame ‘em. It’s unacceptable. I didn’t feel that way about it. It’s unacceptable. We go out there, they pay their hard-earned money to at least see us at least put up a decent show. Come on, we’ve got to win that one. Especially a game like that, we’ve got to win that one.”
No Matter What, It’s a Difficult Situation to Be In
As a player, being booed like that can’t be a whole lot of fun. But, when your team collapses that badly, you have to expect it. It’s just yet another bump in the road for Cleveland.
