THOUSAND OAKS, CA. (WVUE) - Rams cornerback Marcus Peters started talking gumbo after getting beat by the Saints in week 9. Coach Payton said he liked the matchup of Michael Thomas against Peters that resulted in a touchdown, and that didn’t go over well.
“Tell Sean Payton to keep talking that ....We going to see him soon you feel me. Cause I like what he’s saying on the sidelines too. So tell him to keep talking that ...., and I hope he see me soon. You feel me. Then we’re going to have a good bowl of gumbo together,” said Peters defiantly.
Fast-forward to this week, and a ton of Tabasco was just thrown into that gumbo.
Me personally, I didn’t have an excellent game that game. You look forward to those rematches, but I didn’t know it was going to turnout like this. Y’all didn’t know it was going to turn out like this. Y’all have fun spinning the gumbo thing," said Peters.
It appeared everything was quieting down on the gumbo front, until Rams head coach Sean McVay piped in from the back of the room as he was passing through.
“Let me get some of that soup,” said McVay.
Gumbo is obviously not soup, but gave the gumbo talk another life.
“Hey my coach is a fiery couch. I’m a fiery player, we have fun with these things internally. Y’all the media, y’all do what y’all going to do with it. Y’all do with it what y’all going to do with it, that’s cool. It’s cool. I got the utmost respect for the head coach and the organization. Things like that, I’m going to be ready to play as much as they’re ready to play. We’re trying to play a game here, not talk about gumbo,” a visibly fed-up Peters said.
