Joey Porter 'an embarrassment to coaching profession,' says Bengals DC
Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther blasted Joey Porter for being 'an embarrassment to the coaching profession.'
The Bengals spent Monday speaking to the media and a lot of the words they used were directed towards the Steelers. Cornerback Adam Jones claimed Antonio Brown was faking his injury. Andrew Whitworth blasted Joey Porter for being on the field. And Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther got in on the act too.
Guenther, per Paul Dehner, Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer, cut LOOSE on Joey Porter, calling him "an embarrassment to the coaching profession."
Porter was on the field talking to Jones during the game, inciting the cornerback and causing the refs to throw a 15-yard flag on Jones that moved the Steelers into position for a close field goal attempt which turned into a game-winner.
This is something that's happened before according to Guenther, who said he even approached Porter about not talking to his players.
Guenther said he approached Porter before the game about not talking to his players after many instances in prior game.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) January 11, 2016
The Steelers reportedly gave Porter a game ball afterwards for inciting Jones into getting the flag. Guenther wasn't impressed with that report.
One more, Guenther on if Pittsburgh gave Porter a game ball. "Well, then that goes to show you what kind of organization they're running."— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) January 11, 2016
This is blossoming into a lighter version of Ravens-Steelers, with the Cincy and Pittsburgh starting to send out some pretty heated remarks about one another.
You're hearing more from Cincinnati, but that's probably because they walked away on the losing end of an ugly game Saturday night.
