Sun Devil Dish: Vontaze Burfict Benched, Washington Rejoices

So, it had to happen. Vontaze Burfict has played out of control for a year and a half, and his penalties have caused many a headache for Dennis Erickson and Sun Devil fans across the nation.

Burfict has been benched for the start of the Washington game, and Gerald Munns will get the start. It is unclear how long the benching will last, but it is an important message sent from the coach: no matter how good you are, if you hurt the team's chances for victory, you will be on the sidelines.
