Sheldon Richardson, Quinton Jefferson ejected in final moments of loss

The Seahawks had a frustrating loss to the Jaguars on Sunday afternoon and they let those frustrations boil over on the field in the final moments of the game.

Seahawks defenders gave a zealous push as Blake Bortles took a knee to run out the clock and a lot of scuffling went on between the two lines. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett and center Brandon Linder tangled to one side while a big group went at it a few yards away.

Seahawks defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson was in that group and wound up being ejected from the game for throwing a punch. Defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson was ejected one play later and things got even uglier as he made his way off the field.

Fans in Jacksonville threw things at Jefferson, who then charged the stands to go after them. He was pulled away before things could escalate even further.

Richardson and Jefferson can expect to hear from the league and others may also get fined for their behavior in the final moments of a tight game. Any fans who were seen throwing things should see the same from the Jaguars.

  1. Classless organization from the top to bottom, same tired act we saw when they blew SB 49 and started a fight rather than shaking hands when it ended.

  2. Those fans should be banned, know how to act at an event or don’t go. I am not a Seahawk fan, I just hate when “Fans” act like they are tough and can actually do something to pro athletes.

  3. I think it’s cute that Seattle fans thought their team was actually good. Not as funny as them thinking they were good due to Russell Wilson, though.

    When the defense is average they don’t win. Wilson is not good enough to lead an average team to victory. 3-20 when the defense allows 25+points.

    What could they have thrown? Paper cups? Cry me a river.

    No, they were actually pouring water/beverages on him and throwing bottles at him etc. I’m a huge jags fan and was excited for the win in a close game but that was classless. After multiple things were thrown on/at him he attempted to go into the stands. Would’ve loved to see one of the wimpy punks deal with him face to face.

  5. Classless by the Seattle defense at the end of the game. Michael Bennett rolled up on the center’s legs. Like Myers and Moose said, definitely not Walter Payton Man-of-the-Year behavior. Jefferson shouldn’t have been able to get into it with the fans in the first place. He was supposed to have been leaving the field. That said, the fans that did that should also have been ejected and if they were season ticket holders, they probably are, they should have their tickets revoked. Just because you pay to go to a game doesn’t mean you can act like an idiot.

  6. Couldn’t of happened to a more classless group. Bush league going after players livelihood at their knees in victory formation. All the while the classless coach chomping his gum on the sidelines with zero control over his players. He even had to come on field and get a flag because of those bush leaguers. Bennett should of also been tossed.

    But why should the player care about anything a fan says? You can’t tell me the same thing wouldn’t have happened in Seattle or any other stadium for that matter. Big deal he had something poured on him. He’s a player in the NFL which means he’s probably had worse done to him. I’m not condoning what the fans did, by no means, but players need to realize what fans do or say doesn’t mean anything–they are still in the NFL which means they get the last laugh.

  8. Autocrat Goodell should suspend them both for the rest of the year. Sheldon Richardson is a goon.

  9. Bennett better be suspended and Jags fans better be tossed. Throw a punch fine, but going after knees like Bennett did was dirty. Have no idea how the refs missed it but the league won’t miss it. He has to sit at least one game. If Pete went on the field to tell his players to back off fine but I doubt it cuz he’s a turd too.

  10. The Seahawks have are like the Hillary Clintons of the NFL. Next thing you know is we’ll find out they sold their playbook story the Toronto Argonauts

    How do you lose to Jacksonville?

    Awesome! I love helping new fans become acclimated to the game.
    Really though, it works as most sports do. The team that puts more points up wins the game.
    Simple.
    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

  12. Kudos to the bald bearded white guy who pulled Jefferson back more than once – brave dude, did a service to everyone – including/especially Jefferson.

    Weird game. Wilson strangely off, stupid throws on all three picks. Still had a chance there at the end.

    And the injuries continue to pile up, don’t know how the Hawks win if Wagner and KJ are both out next week . . .

    Except according to that fake Pats fan unless the team that scored more points is the dollfins then the winner cheated and the game doesn’t really count.

  14. I cannot believe anyone is defending a player who was just ejected for punching someone trying to jump in the stands after pissed off fans.. if the fans threw things they should be ejected but the fact that you are defending the player shows your lack of class..

  15. “Michael Bennett rolled up on the center’s legs. Like Myers and Moose said, definitely not Walter Payton Man-of-the-Year behavior.”

    Why does the NFL even consider promoting guys like the Bennett’s, much less actually choose to do it? Those two lie constantly, race bait and cannot handle anything that doesn’t go their way.

    Sorry SEA fans, but this really is typical Seattle behavior.

  16. It is the truth when fans object to Seattle’s crap. It does start
    from the top. Pete Carroll has always tip-toed the rules.
    He doesn’t go up to the line ..he actually crosses it ..
    and hopes he doesn’t get caught.
    Ask some former USC players who stated that when they
    had some parties assistant coaches would show up..indicating
    the coaches were wired in to all,
    but when Reggie Bush pulled up in a BMW ..they seemed to
    not notice.

  17. This is the only way the NFL stay can relevent. More fighting, cheap shots and acting like a complete fool on the field. This is the new NFL.

  18. The Seahawks have are like the Hillary Clintons of the NFL. Next thing you know is we’ll find out they sold their playbook story the Toronto Argonauts.

    That’s an insult to Hillary Clinton. At least she gave a concession speech. Seahawks couldn’t accept their loss in the Superbowl (shoulda’ run the ball) or today.

    “What could they have thrown? Paper cups? Cry me a river.”

    Sure. Because that’s the point: how much physical ‘damage’ could be done.
    If someone spits on you, it’s just liquid, right?

  20. Carroll is a punk. I have little respect for the man. he’s a terrible loser, and his petulance comes out sideways through his players.

  21. When Frank Clark looks like the model of restraint, you know your team is a horde of uncontrollable dbags. I would not be surprised to see other offensive linemen take note of Bennett’s knee dives and chop block this cheap shot artist.

  22. Goodell should hire Ted Wells again to do another bogus Wells Report about the ending of the game. It couldn’t be any worse than the hatchet job he did on Brady

  23. Seahawks fans dumped popcorn on Navarro Bowman as he was carted off the field with a catastrophic knee injury. Bad fans are always unacceptable and idiots, but they’re not exactly perfect fans either.

    – a bitter 49er fan

  24. Jefferson is in deep doodoo. Getting ejected is already bad. Going after the fans makes it worse. It is a double whammy. He may get a multi-game suspension. I mean it is definitely worse than smoking weed.
