Andy Reid came about as close as he ever has to calling out a player.
On Monday, Reid addressed cornerback Marcus Peters, who after tossing an official’s penalty flag in the stands walked off the field, believing he was disqualified.
He wasn’t. Peters returned to the sideline before the end of the game.
Reid said he was evaluating how to handle the incident. “I always talk to the person first,” Reid said. “That’s where I sit right now. I haven’t made any decisions yet. That was the wrong thing to do.”
Asked immediately afterwards if the Chiefs lacked discipline, Reid may have been thinking about Peters but wasn’t specific.
“At times frustration can set in,” Reid said. “When good things don’t happen, it’s important to control yourself. With young guys they’re high strung, man, they’re competitive. (But) there’s a fine line. You have to handle yourself the right way.”
