ALL HAIL BLEERGH.
In tribute to Bleergh, here’s the Wildcard weekend best and worst penalties. I was watching a regular season game and they were talking about how many penalties the P*ts ( I know, I know, but it was the only game I could watch) had taken and how above their average it was. Which got me thinking about whats the average and what was the best and worst penalty of the week. So, here’s a random breakdown of this weeks penalties. I’m not going to even try to find the tape for these, nor am I making any judgement call on the individual penalties. I’m sure that there are plays that should have been called and were not, and other plays where the penalty wasn’t needed, depending on your fandom.
Here are the best (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week
|Dallas||Offensive Holding||This was a punt and nullified a TD. haha|
|Chicago||DPI||33 yard penalty|
|Houston||DPI||23 yard penalty|
|Philadelphia||Unnecessary Roughness||15 yard penalty|
|Chicago||Unnecessary Roughness||14 yard penalty|
Here are the worst (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week
|Dallas||False start||1 yard penalty|
|Houston||Neutral Zone Infraction||4 yard penalty|
|A bunch at 5 yards|
For multiple penalties there are only 2 players this week with multiple penalties. So sad, I expected this list to be longer.
|Player – Team||Number of penalties||Total yards|
|K.Jackson – Houston||2||28|
|R.Stanley – Baltimore||2||15|
And here’s the total number of penalties per team this weekend:
|Team||Number of penalties|
For an average of about 4.9 penalties per game, which is much lower than the 2018 regular season average of 8.0.
My current plan is to do these up to the Superb Owl and then start it back up for the regular season in September. So, if there is something you think i should look at or not cover or whatever left me know below. I think that this type of post will be more fun when we don’t all watch every second of each game. I plan to track the most penalized player by number of penalties and total yardage, and also the best and worst teams for penalties in the regular season.
