NFL Head Coach Defends Taunting Penalty Rule

  NFL Head Coach Defends Taunting Penalty Rule Coming into the 2021 season, the NFL said it was putting an emphasis on taunting. It’s been very evident through the first two months of the season that the league is staying true to that. Although there have been countless complaints about the abundance of taunting calls this season, Bears head coach Matt Nagy recently defended […] The post NFL Head Coach Defends Taunting Penalty Rule appeared first on The Spun.

Why even tell this to the world? Why kill a black coaching candidates chances like this? Why not keep your mouth shut and select the best candidate? He might be wrong but in the article the guy saying the interview went poorly says that nothing about Bieniemy ’s past is holding him back. He actually says, “He’s a good family man; he’s a good guy. He’s a good coach, but the teams have a right to hire whoever they want.”

In the Chiefs’ most recent game, running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire picked up a 15-yard taunting penalty for pointing at a defender on his way into the end zone. Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy was not happy about it.

Bieniemy said he’s been talking to the Chiefs’ offensive playmakers about how they should avoid taunting players, and his rule is simple: If you score a touchdown, hand the ball to the official and go celebrate on the sideline..

“The thing that we stress to our guys [is that] this is a point of emphasis, so regardless of what you might seem to think that it’s harmless, that’s not the case anymore,” Bieniemy said, via the Kansas City Star. “We need to go back to the days of just handing the ball to the ref — get in the end zone, celebrate with your guys, and then we go on from there.”

Sean Payton thinks taunting is being “over-officiated”

  Sean Payton thinks taunting is being “over-officiated” Officiating was a major topic of conversation during Sean Payton’s visit to The Dan Patrick Show on Thursday. Payton shared his belief that officials should have full-time jobs with the NFL and said that everyone involved in the NFL deserves better officiating than there’s been this season. One of the most contentious officiating issues this [more]Payton shared his belief that officials should have full-time jobs with the NFL and said that everyone involved in the NFL deserves better officiating than there’s been this season. One of the most contentious officiating issues this season as been the point of emphasis that’s been placed on taunting calls.

Also of note, Bieniemy was the RB coach before being promoted to OC. If Williams gets hurt or banged up, even for just a couple weeks, I could easily see Hyde or the rookie taking over. Third and one. Brady has bled the clock dry both times he's touched the ball . I just got a text from free agent WR DeSean Jackson telling me he is going to the Raiders.

If you're Eric Bieniemy , why on earth wouldn't be calling up Brandon Staley and begging for the Chargers OC job? It would give him the opportunity to be basically the head coach of an offense with Justin Herbert and put to rest all the complaints about his lack of playcalling. I want EB to stay with the Chiefs bc he’s done such a great job in developing and working with Mahomes. He’s been the perfect OC for Mahomes. He also did a great job of coaching Jamaal Charles when he was the RB coach.

What Bieniemy is describing is the classic Barry Sanders touchdown celebration. It worked well for Sanders, and may catch on with more players who decide that any kind of celebration isn’t worth the risk of a taunting flag.
