Argument with a Chiefs coach contributed to Marcus Peters suspension

The Chiefs suspended cornerback Marcus Peters this week after he got a personal foul penalty and left the field during Sunday’s game, but that isn’t all he did.

NFL Network reports that Peters also had a verbal altercation with a coach on the team bus to the airport after Sunday’s game at New York, and that contributed to the team’s decision to suspend him as well.

There’s no word on which coach Peters quarreled with, but NFL Network reported that he was apologetic afterward and is disappointed with the way things went this week.

The Chiefs are on a four-game losing streak, and playing without Peters on Sunday won’t be easy. But with his team seemingly falling apart, coach Andy Reid may have felt that a lack of discipline is a problem, and Peters and the rest of the team needed to know what kind of conduct will not be tolerated.

  1. i’m sure they could find 31 trade partners for that guy. behavior beshmavior, that kid is an interception machine!

  2. This should surprise nobody. Was booted off his college team after run-ins with the coaching staff and his emotional issues were well known to NFL teams before the draft. Great talent, but for many teams the other baggage is too much.

  3. The Chiefs have a lot of talent on their team, but their mental discipline is very poor. Kelce is the other nitwit with more skills than brains at times. I’m surprised Reid hasn’t jerked the chain sooner on these guys. You can play loose, but when you lose that mental edge, it quickly turns to Chaos.

  4. Glad that stuff doesn’t go down on the Patriots, but I’d be lying if I said all the flag throwing and chain snatching going on on the field lately wasn’t entertaining as all get out.

  5. Andy Reid believes in the idea that there are some good people who have gotten themselves into trouble, and somebody needs to give them a second chance. Perhaps personal issues helped inspire these feelings several years ago. He was the coach who gave Michael Vick an opportunity after Vick was released from prison. Marcus Peters’ problems and issues were very well documented, and he was actually removed from some teams’ draft boards. I actually praise Andy for what he’s trying to do. Once in a while, these things come back to bite you, but I’m sure Andy believes there are some things that are just more important than football. He cares about his team too, but he’s thinking that he can help rehab some of these guys. I don’t think that’s a negative.

  6. No one team is immune to this type of behavior at some point in the season, especially if the team is in a midst of a losing streak, emotions can boil over and produce this type of situation. It was just a week ago that even the patriots had a similar situation, when Brady was shown shouting at OC McDaniels, no harm no foul there.

  7. Somebody should have told Peters he was not Tom Brady!!! Even though Brady did it during the game– and got only SUPPORT from the coaches and team. This is also what separates the greats from the wannabe’s. The greats don’t suspend their personnel for such stuff at this stage of the game to make a point. Did the Patriots suspend Brady and he cursed at the coach and looked like he wanted to knock him out if he said ONE MORE WORD!!! And the coach didn’t say anything except “WIDE OPEN”.

    The Chiefs had better take page from the Patriots. I mean they could have made him run laps or something else instead of hurting the team. It seems they need him.

  8. A couple of more losses and Kelce will be the next meathed malcontent lipping off to the coaching staff if I had to bet on it.

  9. This feels like the late Eagles 2012 season for the Chiefs. I’ve noticed Chiefs fans aren’t so vocal asking how could Phily get rid of Andy Reid as they were a few months ago.

  10. Chief coaches bear some responsibility for this. There was a stretch of about 10 to 12 plays the end zone where peters was getting burnt just about every play

  11. “i’m sure they could find 31 trade partners for that guy. behavior beshmavior, that kid is an interception machine!”

    I would not be so sure about that. Peters has a lot of interception because that is all he plays for. If he does not get the interception, he usually get burnt for big yards because the receiver get behind him. Plus, have you seen him tackle? There are several videos where he actually moves away from making a tackle.

    Nope, I am a die hard Chiefs fan and it takes a lot for me to turn on a player or coach. Actually I have been cheering for the Chiefs since Marty and never wanted a coach to be fired, I will admit I was thrilled with the replacement coach sometimes, but never actively called for a coach to be fired. But Peters is first player since Larry Johnson (Another cancer of a player) I have wanted to see the Chiefs get rid of.

  12. “Andy Reid believes in the idea that there are some good people who have gotten themselves into trouble, and somebody needs to give them a second chance”

    Is that what Reid said about T.O. in 2005?

  13. I’m a Chiefs fan and think we’ll need Peters to beat Oakland next week, but Kudos to Andy!Someone was saying earlier that Peters gets burned a lot, trying to get those picks and doesn’t give “it all” at tackling. I agree with him. Cornerback is our weakest position, but having Houston in pass coverage 90% of the time is just plain STUPID!!

    Wow, thats quite a little script you dreamed up for that exchange.

  15. A team can’t have this sort of thing going on,creating distractions,especially when this particular team needs to break out of a major slump. Peters isn’t worth the aggravation.
