Marcus Peters’ homage to Marshawn will surely draw a fine

AP

The game-clinching pick six from Rams cornerback Marcus Peters was punctuated by a backward dive into the end zone, coupled with Peters grabbing something other than the football.

It was an obvious homage to his cousin, Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, who has a habit of (as he puts it) grabbing his “ding-ding” when he scores a touchdown.

It’s also an obvious violation of the now-relaxed celebration rules. And it’s odd that ESPN made no mention of it, despite showing the play several different times.

The officials didn’t flag Peters, not that the 15 yards would have made a difference at that point in the game, with the Rams up by 20. But Peters undoubtedly will receive from the league office a letter with an unmistakable “thou shalt not grab thy ding-ding” message.

  1. What a talented bum. Hard too root for him and lynch. These guys just don’t care. Really disgusting way too act on prime time. In other news let’s go jets

  2. This clown will do something dumb in a big game in a huge moment as he can’t help himself and cannot control his emotions. What’s the over/under on how many games he gets 15 yd. personal fouls called on him? I say 7.

  3. Ex Patriot and current Titans CB Logan Ryan did the same gesture after his first pick 6. It was against the Jets so I assumed it was a way to pay homage to Jets owner Woody Johnson.

    Ryan was embarrassed as his mom was watching the game.

  4. Proves once again that Lynch is a cancer. I still haven’t forgotten the way Lynch ran onto the field in last year’s 1st Chiefs game and shoved an official in order to protect his “cousin” who had just delivered a late, cheap hit on Carr.

  5. What are these guys – butlers or football players? Do their manners really matter that much? They both played well – Peters was better. I’ll take a baller and an impolite win over classy losses and sportsmanship trophies. But that’s just me.

  6. Now we’re talking about football again and all you guys will thinking about is this guy sat for the anthem last year.

    Pick which side of the argument you want to be on.

    This was 100% football and 22 is a baller.

    ESPN didn’t need to give that gesture any additional coverage.

    Was it just me or did anyone think they too heard Gruden say to McVay at the post game hand shake “See you in the Super Bowl”.
    Geez coach, let’s win a game first.

  8. Why is “class” valued over “no class?” Because acting like a poor person on TV is offensive to people who don’t like poor people. That’s what the word “class” means. The players aren’t poor, but they are only a few years removed from being such in many cases, so they act like poor people. Their mannerisms don’t change when they sign a contract.

  9. Easy TD with no Raiders near all him, all he had to do was run it in. Jumping in the air like that was stupid too.

    Take a cue from your teammate Todd Gurley. He’s in the end zone more than anyone else, never see anything like this from him.

  10. “Bring so much fun to the game” ? How,by grabbing their junk, you actually consider that fun? I could really care less how they get fined, or what their antics are. I just don’t see the “fun” aspect of it.

  11. You don’t have to see the fun in it. Somebody does. It’s a game. Please stop with this stuff about class. Our president has no class, and you expect professional athletes playing a game to show some?

  12. It’s crap like that why he’s not wearing a Chiefs uniform anymore. He’s a locker room cancer and a couple of years from now he will be playing on another team. He is the Terrel Owens of defensive backs.

  13. I saw the score (and multiple replays) and didn’t notice the crotch grab. I thought the jump was unnecessary though. Ack like you’ve been there before instead of showing your ass. Maybe Wade will run his butt all week for being stupid.

  14. Don’t act like you’ve been there before. If you get in the end zone, have fun. Wade isn’t running anybody for having fun, he’s one of the most lenient coaches in the NFL. This isn’t a dictatorship and these are not kids.

  15. Both of them are low-lifes.

    The relaxed “Celebration rules,” are stupid too…

    I don’t see anything wrong with expecting these guys to act like they have a little, “Class.”

  16. People do realize they are cousins, right? And BTW – I’m pretty sure Peters is pretty happy on that talented defense in LA, rather than playing for the chefs in an average defense in a city of rednecks. Gee, what would you choose?

  17. Was it just me or did anyone think they too heard Gruden say to McVay at the post game hand shake “See you in the Super Bowl”.
    Geez coach, let’s win a game first.

    – – – – – – – – – – – – –

    I think Gruden was just telling McVay that he would see him in the Super Bowl because McVay was for sure going to be there. Not Gruden himself.

  18. Didn’t even notice. Don’t care. Peters grew up in Oakland. Whatever he did was probably for his homies. When you get a pick six in front of your home town, you might act a little silly.

  19. I did think it was odd that ESPN did not at least mention the Lynch connection. I get that they did not want to draw attention to the grab, but that detail is somewhat football related, much more so considering that Lynch was on the field. They also did not mention the connection when Peters and Lynch ran into each other (and Lynch bulldozed him) on the sideline early in the game and Peters congratulated Lynch and talked to him for a second.

    Wait are you really saying poor people can’t have class, because that sure sounds like what you are saying. Does that mean the inverse is true and rich people are all classy? I’ve met plenty of people on opposite ends of the economic spectrum that blow your theory out of the water.

    Class is about how you’re raised, not economics.
