Chiefs considering discipline for Marcus Peters’ premature exit from field

AP

Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct late in Sunday’s loss to the Jets when he took issue with a penalty called on teammate Steven Nelson during a two-point conversion attempt by throwing the flag into the stands.

Peters was not ejected from the game, but coach Andy Reid said on Sunday that Peters thought that he had been disqualified. That explained why he ran to the locker room instead of remaining in the game as the Jets upped their lead to 38-31 on an Elijah McGuire run.

Peters later returned to the sideline without socks or leg pads and Reid said on Monday that the team is “evaluating” whether to discipline him for taking off.

“I haven’t made any decision either way,” Reid said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN.com. “[But] that was the wrong thing for [Peters] to do.”

Sitting Peters wouldn’t do any favors for a Chiefs defense that was torn up by Josh McCown on Sunday in a crucial game against the Raiders in Week 14, but we’ll see if Reid decides that punishment fits Peters’ crime.

  1. I’m surprised more players don’t do things like this given how bad and/or corrupt NFL officials are. It’s the equivalent of punting a basketball into the stands, which I’d love to see. Why the NFL/NBA continue to let poor/corrupt officials dictate games, I’ll never know. Unless the league office has a rea$on to influence games, of course.

  2. Heaven forbid Andy send a message to this team & actually discipline someone for their actions. Not a fan of “the hoodie” but he would have cut someone weeks ago just to send a message under-performing/stupid mistakes on the field won’t be tolerated. That’s why they compete for the championship every year and we’re 1 & done even with teams that should compete for the championship.

  3. It’s one thing to constantly get burnt while gambling on picks or completely ignoring run defense as a responsibility… but his behavior will prevent him from a big second contract.

  4. Wait, how was he not ejected?!?

    Seriously the dude may have committed the GOAT entertainming penalty which didnt get enforced (since there was already a holding call on the play) and he didnt get ejected?

  5. If he wasn’t kicked out of the game he should have been. The flag is like an extension of the official; you don’t touch it under any circumstances.

    Reid has once again brought a team he coaches to the peak of his ability and it has resulted in zero championships. When are owners going to figure out that some guys just don’t have the IT factor that wins championships?

  6. Peters has been a knucklehead sine the chiefs drafted him. They can suspend him for a game if they want, but a zebra doesn’t change his stripes. he will still be the same knucklehead either way.

  7. Peters left because he thought he had been ejected(maybe he should’ve been, maybe not, that is debatable).
    The bigger question is…Why wasn’t Andy making a fuss about Peters being ejected and if he knew that Peters had not been ejected, why was he letting security escort Peters to the locker room?
    Instead he just stood there with that stupid look on his face because he apparently had no clue what was going on, which is the root of the problem in KC.

  8. I know they need Peters next week, but if Reid doesn’t suspend him, he risks losing the team. I’m not even talking about the penalty, I am not talking about him mistakenly leaving the field. I am talking about him coming back on the field after learning he wasn’t kicked out and not being prepared to play. Making yourself unavailable to your team by not coming onto the field in full uniform is inexcusable in my eyes

  9. Dump him while he has value. He peeks into the backfield too much and thinks his ability will carry the day. Bad student at UW so he’s not a film guy either. Locker room hates him too btw (heard it direct)

    He’s Maurice Claiborne but with a crappier attitude

    I normally think the the worst of the refs, but then they showed the replays of these penalties and they WERE 100% penalties. I was expecing to see ticky tack bs calls, but for once these were legit. KC can only blame themselves.

  11. Sitting him for a quarter or half would probably be the right thing to do but we all no that no NFL coach is going to sit one of their best players in a pivotal game when they don’t have to.

    Not talking about the calls in this game in particular, as I thought they were the right calls as well. Just in general. It has to be aggravating when refs continuously miss calls, I’m surprised more players don’t do something like this or say something in the media.

  13. They should punish him by letting him be the elite QB he could be by allowing him to lineup on the #1 WR all game.

    I wish I was an NFL QB going against stubborn fool Bob Sutton.

    Down, set… Oh, top CB only plays on the right, 10 yard out throw guaranteed on the left, HIKE…

    But yes, Peters is a clown.

  14. He was escorted from the stadium even the announcers said he was ejected. He’s going to be fined. How is it his fault for not fighting the security guard and staying in the game.

  15. 2017 Chiefs = 2011-12 “Dream Team” Eagles.

    When you have as many strong and forceful locker room personalities as the Chiefs, to put it mildly, you better darn sure have a strong sheriff to keep them in check. And Reid has flopped miserably when it comes to patrolling that squad.

    As an Eagles fan, I’ve seen how this movie ends before. It definitely isn’t pretty, to say the least.

    The Chiefs are one more loss away from quitting on Reid.

    You’ve got to be a millennial.

  17. The defensive coordinator needs to go after that embarrassment of a performance. Peters is a dork flat out, not surprised he is related to king dork Marshawn Lynch. Andy Reid took a step in the right direction relinquishing play calling duties, now his defense and it’s 100 million dollar flop Justin Houston need to start doing their dang job. Can’t stop the Jet’s and 50 year old Matt Forte, what a joke.

  18. I loved the whole thing!!! No need for further punishment that would effect the team in any way. Just know the entertainment value was there and no one was hurt. This is just a shake your head kind of moment. If that is his only one-give the guy a pass. It should be the highlight clip of the week!!!
