Times columnist Larry Stone wrote for today about Chris Petersen‘s consistency in discipline:

I wish Petersen had been more forthright Monday in talking about his handling of an incident that was witnessed by a television audience, not to mention fans in the stadium. He said, instead, that he would keep any disciplinary measure “in-house.”

But it’s more important to be forthright and decisive in your actions, and Petersen has done that. Peters would be the eighth player he has either suspended or dismissed from the team since February. That includes his starting quarterback, Cyler Miles; a wide receiver of tremendous potential, Damore’ea Stringfellow; and a starting linebacker, John Timu, for an incident that took place when Steve Sarkisian was still the coach.

As a parent, I have learned (sometimes the hard way) that young people respond best to discipline when it is consistently meted out. Receiver Jaydon Mickens said Monday that Petersen’s message is hitting home.

“It’s like a ‘nobody’s bigger than the team’ type thing,’’ Mickens said. “Leave your egos at the door when you come in here. There’s no star players here. It doesn’t matter. … Marcus will be all right. He’ll get back right. It was just the competitive nature in him at the time. He’ll be fine.”
