Fan attempts Browns’ Myles Garrett’s helmet smash on Steelers’ Mason Rudolph on a chair
Getting hit on the head with a football helmet by Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett likely doesn’t feel too great. On Thursday, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, unfortunately, got to witness how it feels. Fans on Instagram gave some an indication that it would not feel good, as they tested hitting a helmet on a wooden chair.
Watch below. He uses his football helmet to hit the chair, which cracks on the impact.
While the video gave an example of what type of impact a helmet smash can do, it doesn’t quite do it justice. Garrett, who measures in at 6-4, 272-pounds and recorded 33 225-pound bench press reps at the combine, is a massive, strong human being. The impact of his strike on Rudolph was likely more powerful than the video above — not to mention, Garrett did it at a faster rate.
Nonetheless, getting hit on the head with a football helmet by any human isn’t going to feel very good.
