Raheem’s Cousin Is A Cheap Shot Artist

October 19th, 2010

"And to think I let him watch the Cowboys with me back in the day ..."

Every family has disrespectful troublemakers. And one in the Raheem Morris clan is no fan of the Bucs.

Joe was stunned to learn yesterday that a relative of Morris launched heinous personal attacks on the Buccaneers organization. It was such an ugly assault that the young man was penalized by the NFL.

It turns out Saints cornerback Malcolm Jenkins, who dished out a flagrant late hit on Josh Freeman’s knee Sunday, is Raheem’s cousin, so said the head coach during The Raheem Morris Show on WDAE-AM 620 Monday.

Jenkins got a personal foul on the play and then another one for throwing a punch at Freeman.

Joe hopes Jenkins will get nothing for Christmas this year from Raheem. Scratch that, Joe thinks a framed Jim Bates would be appropriate.

    NObody was inocent in that situation as I saw it….. Jenkins should not have gone toward Freeman’s knees BUT that was during the game meaning that the ball was still in play…… Freeman intentionally attacked Jenkins which made it personal and will likely cause anyone to get punched in any other enviroment….

    Still, neither should be condoned nor go unpunished!

    Tye, I have to admit that I was not at the game, I was listening to the radio, and those guys saw it as a persobnal foul followed by Jenkins taking a swing at Freeman and someone else. They thought he should have been ejected. How did Free attack him? I go to work everyday, bars, the gym, traffic, I have been insulted in one or two of these situation, but I have not took a swing at anyone since I was a kid. Now, a football field is not an everyday situation, so I have no problem with these guys swinging at eachother, it happens, but they deserve the penalty when they do.

    McB: Free got up, ran up to Jenkins, and got in his face. I do not remember him hitting out at Jenkins, just getting right in his face a la Favre/Sapp in the old days.

    I thought the hit AND the punch should have gotten Jenkins ejected.

    Freeman was mad at the situation and the low hit, which is understandable.

    Jenkins should not have thrown a punch NO MATTER WHAT WAS SAID. He should be thrown out.

    SkookumSmitty explained it well……. Even after the refs and coaches seperated everyone Freeman still made his way back over to Jenkins to get back in his face a second time before going back to the huddle…..

    Jenkins was not right in what he did don’t misunderstand that BUT neither was Freeman by constantly provoking Jenkins…. Once by getting up out of bounds and running Jenkins down from behind, grabbing his shoulder pads and spinning him around which got Freeman slugged but then again after everyone got involved to seperate them Jenkins was over it heading back to his team when Freeman made his way over and got in his face again!

    ALL players should have to show control of themselves and be held accountable for their actions.
