SJ - November 9, 2021

The NFL's taunting rules have been an absolute joke.  On Monday night during the Bears-Steelers game that was on full display.  Bears linebacker Cassius Marsh sacked Ben Roethlisberger on third down to setup up what should have been a possession changing punt.

Marsh made the mistake of looking at the Steelers bench following the big play and was flagged for taunting.  Seriously, that happened.

To add to the bizarre flag being thrown was the fact that the referee, prior to throwing the flag, hip-checked Marsh as he was attempting to make his way back to the Bears sideline.

The terrible call allowed the Steelers drive to continue and they added a field goal to extend their lead to six.  It's a really bad call, but maybe just run to your sidelines if you're the guy who was just promoted from the practice squad.
