Defensive tackle Sheldon Richardsonshouldered the responsibility for the timeout fiasco immediately following the 31-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
"Sheldon needs to take no accountability for that,'' Mornhinweg said, per Newsday. "He was only trying to help. It's just that simple."
Mornhinweg explained why he was wildly gesticulating for a timeout.
