CAREY TELLS BUCS AND VIKES TO COOL IT

FOX’s Chris Myers reports from the sidelines of the Vikings-Bucs game that referee Mike Carey has told both teams to cool it with the hits after the whistle.
Myers initially characterized it as a “warning” late in the first half, but then Carey told Myers during intermission┬áthat it wasn’t quite that strong.
Basically, the message to the coachings staffs was to control their player so that Carey doesn’t have to.
In the second quarter, Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards put a horribly late hit on Bucs quarterback Jeff Garcia, as MDS pointed out in a previous post.

    And? That its, no speculation about the world ending, or soccer taking over as the number one sport in the U.S.? What about the Vikings having to play the second half with one arm tied behind their back?

    Hey Floria how about that no call Brooks grabbing Petersons arm with his back to the ball. What about pass interferance!!!

    Is Carey somehow implying that the Bucs are taking cheapshots? I didn’t see that report on the Fair and Balanced PFT site.

    Edwards should have been ejected for that cheap shot.

    Edwards played dirty. Garcia was kicking his teams ass, so he took a cheap shot. And Garcia got up, dusted himself off and fought to Victory. Our 195 pound QB beat the Vikings entire defense.
    EAT THAT.
