Whitworth: I respect the Steelers, but not Joey Porter

Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter was in the middle of the mess at the end of last Saturday’s Steelers-Bengals game when he shouldn’t have been, and Porter will reportedly be fined.

Monday, Bengals tackle Andrew Whitworth shared some of his feelings on Porter and his actions.

“I respect the Steelers and Coach Tomlin, but Joey Porter I don’t respect,” Whitworth told reporters Monday. “No class.”

Whitworth is a Bengals captain, a longtime leader and go-to for locker room reporters on all matters. Though it wasn’t quite the tirade Pacman Jones had after the game, Whitworth had strong words for Porter.

“His unprofessionalism,” Whitworth said, “is ridiculous.”
