It's not often you hear about a player spitting in the face of his own teammate, but Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett isn't like most players.
That's the word anyway from Pro Football Talk, which reported that Dockett spat in the face of safety Kerry Rhodes when the two disagreed Sunday about whether the Cardinals should let the Jets score in order to get Arizona's offense the ball.
This apparently is what happens when Greg McElroy is the biggest reason your team lost. Teammates go crazy on each other.
At the time of the disagreement, New York held a 7-6 lead (the Jets would win by the same score), but if the Jets scored a touchdown and took a 14-6 advantage, the Cardinals would still have a chance to tie the game with a touchdown and two-point conversion.
Apparently, Rhodes thought the Cardinals should let the Jets score. Dockett disagreed, and apparently, he let his spitting do the talking for him.
PFT writes we can expect the team to discipline Dockett.
Considering the Cardinals are on an eight-game losing streak, maybe suspending him would actually be a reward for Dockett.
