Referees in Sunday’s Bears-Saints playoff game sent a clear message to the players, given what happened the last time these two met, and it sent one particular player to the locker room early.

And that’s why the actions of Anthony Miller on one particular play were not wise. Miller, probably trying to exact revenge on CJ Gardner-Johnson for what happened last time the two played, struck the Saints cornerback in his face at the end of the play.

Miller was hit with a personal foul for his actions, and subsequently ejected. And while throwing him out of a playoff game may have been a bit harsh, it was a stupid move on his part nonetheless.
