Wednesday wasn't a good day for Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Terence Garvin.
Garvin, whose hit on Kevin Huber broke the Bengals punter's jaw and cracked a vertebrae, found out he was fined $25,000 for the play. That's more than one of his game checks.
To make matters worse, a letter written to Huber by a 7-year-old Bengals fan went viral, and it has some harsh words for Garvin.
The young boy's dad tweeted out a photo of his letter, which was picked up by Deadspin. The letter stars off cute but takes a dark turn at the end:
Here's the text of the letter:
I hope you feel better soon. I am mad at the Steelers because you are my #1 player. I am 7 years old and love the Bengals and Bearcats. I know you played for the Bearcats and Bengals and I love the teams. I hope that Steeler player loses his house and has to live in his car.
Get well soon,
Nicholas Andrew Johnson
Obviously this boy doesn't realize how harsh his words are, but it is a little funny to see just how passionate he is. Even Huber himself doesn't seem that upset.
"At the end of the day, the guy made the block he was supposed to make, it was a hard hit," Huber said. "It obviously worked out the way they planned it because they got a touchdown. It’s hard to get mad at him for making that block, because that's what he’s coached to do and he made the right block, obviously and it sprung a touchdown."
