Now, this might just get NFL players to stop committing stupid, ridiculous, completely boneheaded personal foul penalties. During the Panthers/Buccaneers game yesterday afternoon, defensive tackle Brian Price was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct—a penalty that extended a drive for Carolina after a Cam Newton sack that would have forced them to punt. And, understandably, Bucs coach Raheem Morris was pissed off at Price after it happened. So pissed, in fact, that he didn't just bench him for the rest of the game. He told him to get the fuck off the field—and go home. That's right. Not the bench, not the locker room, not the trainer's table. Home!
"Yes...I told him to go home," Morris said during his post-game interview. "It's foolish. It's selfish to your teammates, to everybody in our organization, to your fans. That's terrible. That's just selfish behavior to get a 15-yard penalty in that situation when that's all we talk about, when that's all we discuss. You just can't do that to your team."
Damn. Let us reiterate: He sent him home. That's awesome on so many levels. And we'd be shocked to see a single personal foul called on the Bucs for the rest of the season. Way to seize back control of your team, Coach.
