A couple days ago, Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence talked about Jared Goff in the lead-up to their game against the Los Angeles Rams. Lawrence went into detail about not liking quarterbacks and “wanting to take the quarterback’s soul,” referring to Goff.

Fast forward to Saturday night and while Goff let his running backs do much of the work, the Rams QB didn’t take a single sack and the Rams defeated the Cowboys 30-22 to advance in the playoffs. Lawrence’s remarks may have been “bulletin board material” for the home team because while Fox’s Chris Myers was interviewing Goff, cornerback Aqib Talib rushed in to shout that no one was taking Goff’s “fucking soul.”

Myers did the only thing he could possibly do while hearing a curse word on live TV, which was to yank the microphone away as quickly as possible and apologize for the bad language. Goff, after agreeing that what Talib said would need to be bleeped, quipped “He’s right though.”

If it’s any consolation for Talib and for Fox, the current government shutdown means that the FCC is also shut down so it’s not like they’ll get fined. Not saying that gives anybody free reign to just shout four letter words live on broadcast TV but who’s going to stop anyone from doing it right now?
