DK Metcalf tried to re-enter game after his ejection

With 1:19 remaining, and the Seahawks on their way to a sixth loss this season, receiver DK Metcalf lost his cool.

He grabbed the facemask of Henry Black and then that of Eric Stokes after an incomplete pass intended for him. Metcalf was ejected. Packers safety Darnell Savage was cited for taunting, and Seahawks offensive lineman Jamarco Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

“Tired of losing,” Metcalf explained afterward when asked about his fight and ejection, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

Metcalf’s ejection was the sixth in the NFL this season, according to footballzebras.com.

Metcalf tried to re-enter the game two plays later, apparently because of confusion over the ejection announcement. Referee Brad Allen ran up to Metcalf and pointed to the sideline after Metcalf returned to the huddle.

“I don’t think DK is emotional. I think he’s passionate,” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said, via Gregg Bell of The News Tribune. “I’d rather him be passionate than not.”

Metcalf had only three catches for 26 yards in the 17-0 loss to the Packers.

Mets manager Bobby Valentine once famously returned to the bench in a disguise after his ejection in a 1999 game.

  1. Give credit where credit is due…..Shannon Sharpe called this clown selfish and stupid a while ago.

  2. I liked Metcalf after he chased down Budda Baker a couple years ago. Such a hustle play, seemed like he had the correct mindset. Man I was wrong. He seems to have a typical diva wide receiver attitude.

  3. DK seems to let a lot of things get under his skin. He needs to learn a few things from Lockett. Lockett seems to be a professional athlete with his head together, DK seems to be boarding the diva train. This is why Seattles “dynasty” fell apart. Too many diva/alphas on the team and not enough team first dudes. If Carroll steps aside after the season or retires this won’t be a very attractive job even though they have Wilson. The cupboard of talent is bare. Seattle keeps trying to restock every year since their SB when at this point they almost need a complete rebuild. Can’t wait to hear the local talking heads on the radio try and spin this like it wasn’t Wilson’s fault.

  4. Well, yeah. That’s what happens when you punch 3 players in the face within 30 seconds after being completely shut down all game.

  5. “Mets manager Bobby Valentine once famously returned to the bench in a disguise after his ejection in a 1999 game.”

    Love that this was snuck into the end of the article lol

  6. The Seahawks should take the highroad. Give him a $50,000 fine and a one game suspension. And then at the end of the season him trade him away. Bye-bye

  7. I thought player had to leave the field after an ejection…why was he still meandering about?

  8. The Seahawks should take the highroad. Give him a $50,000 fine and a one game suspension. And then at the end of the season him trade him away. Bye-bye

    =======================

    Trade to who? I suppose the Patriots but who else would want to deal with the collateral damage?

  9. Most teams would love to have a talent like Metcalf. Rare physical ability.

    And coaches always believe they’re the ones who can fix a guy.

    .. anyone who could get his emotions under control would have a special football player.
